Notes
  • Purpose – The objective of this exploratory paper is to investigate the impact of R&​D expenditures on company performance. R&​D activities play an essential role in the future economic development and financial performance of firms. Design/​methodology/​approach – The research design is based on an earnings equation associating earnings with recorded assets, R&​D expenditures and selling, general and administrative expenses (proxying for advertising expenses). The paper determines a rate of return on R&​D for each given sample of firms in six developed countries. Findings – The results corroborate previous studies of American companies, which found that reported earnings, adjusted for expensing of R&​D, reflect realized benefits from R&​D. This study provides further evidence on the positive contribution of R&​D activities to future company performance, although this contribution can vary from one country to another. Research limitations/​implications – Being exploratory in nature, this paper suggests several areas for investigation. Originality/​value – With the exception of some American studies, the economic effectiveness of investment in R&​D is seldom demonstrated explicitly by the literature, and to the best of our knowledge, there are no existing studies on R&​D productivity taking an international approach.
