oa Meditari : Research Journal of the School of Accounting Sciences - Testing the relationship between intellectual capital and a company's performance : evidence from South Africa
The aim of this study was to investigate whether the performance of a company's intellectual capital can explain organisational performance. The dimensions of a company's performance are (1) profitability, (2) productivity and (3) market valuation. Data were obtained from a sample of 65 companies that are listed on the JSE Securities Exchange (high knowledge-base sectors). Findings from the empirical analysis indicate that the relationships between the performance of a company's intellectual capital and (1) profitability, (2) productivity and (3) market valuation are informative but varied. The empirical findings suggest that the performance of a company's intellectual capital can explain profitability and productivity, but not market valuation.
