The article explores the possibility of implementing systems approach in order to describe the process of value creation through asset management in electric utility companies. The author outlines the key challenges existing in the power industry nowadays. Then, the main problems regarding asset management in the dynamic environment are emphasized. The author describes the current state of research in the field and highlights the significance of value based asset management. The possibility of implementing the basic principles of systems approach in relation to asset management in electric utility companies is analyzed. As a result the author proposes a model that describes the process of value creation throughout the asset management system from the systems approach perspective.
According to the framework of knowledge economy, production and management of knowledge are key aspects of firm’s activity nowadays. Intellectual capital (IC) is the crucial factor for company survival in the market. Therefore it is vital to realize the way that this capital helps to create firm value. The purpose of this study is to test empirically one aspect of the relationship between intellectual capital components and business performance – the influence of intellectual capital structure on process of firm’s value added creation.
In order to analyze the process of intellectual capital transformation into the company value, the balanced panel data were collected. The sample consists of 64 British firms in 6 industries: retail and wholesale trade, machinery manufacture, chemicals manufacture, transport and telecommunications, oil extraction and producing. The panel includes five years: from 2005 to 2009. In order to obtain comprehensive data of chosen companies we used Amadeus Database (Bureau Van Dijk) as like as information from companies’ websites.
As far as there is no singular method of measuring value added by intellectual capital, we used five the most common methods: EVATM, MVATM, FGVTM, VAICTM, P/B ratio. We also used 14 variables as proxies for intellectual capital components.
The models are estimated with pooled cross-sectional OLS method.
Most strongly influence of the intellectual assets structure is reflected in VAIC and FGV. At the same time, EVA and P/B ratio have weak or not significant relationship with the structure of the intellectual assets portfolio.
It should also be noted that models with human capital proxy in the denominator show a significant positive dependency between a ratio of the intellectual capital components and value added.
Moreover consideration of the industry factor changes the results only slightly.
The present study advances our understanding of how to manage knowledge-related resources and contributes to effective investment management. The results confirm that structure of intellectual assets has quite stable linear effect on the value added created by the company. The effect is observed both in the short and long term period. Consequently, management should consider not only an accumulated volume of intellectual capital, but also the ratio between these components in order to increase company value.

“Intellectual capital” is a new term for key resources of a firm that enable it to compete on challenging market. Such assets as IT-systems, brand, employees’ knowledge and competencies are crucial for any company. However, large stocks of these resources do not lead to success automatically. The main purpose of this paper is to find out how interconnections between intellectual capital components contribute to company value. We test empirically linear and non-linear relationship between intellectual capital components and business performance with the assumption of their mutual influence on each other. From the theoretic point of view we combine the theory of intellectual capital with Value-Based Management concept and Resource-Based View in order to investigate the way that firm’s intellectual resources transform into its value.
There are two main problems when dealing with intellectual capital. The first one is intellectual capital evaluation. Previous papers on this topic are usually based on either questionnaire data or information from financial reports. However, questionnaire survey has significant disadvantage as the data obtained include subjective opinion of respondents. Financial reports lack for information about amount of firm’s intellectual capital. Therefore we propose another way to estimate intellectual capital components. Each of three components – human capital, structural capital and relational capital – is measured through the set of financial and non-financial proxy indicators which are collected from company’s reports and its web-site. Further these data are aggregated in first principal components through factor analysis to obtain the comprehensive view of intellectual capital structure. The second problem is to measure the value that has been created by intellectual resources. We chose two measures – market capitalization and market-to-book ratio.
Proposed method of analysis of intellectual capital is used on the sample of 59 firms from European countries with high level of economic and knowledge development. The sample covers five year period (from 2005 to 2009). We used the LS method to assess the direct and indirect relationships between intellectual capital and corporate value.
This study contributes in different ways. Firstly, it helps researchers and management to understand what synergetic effects between intellectual capital’s components take place. Secondly, it proposes an application of principal components method for investigating intellectual capital. Also it helps to recognize the level of homogeneity of intellectual capital elements that are combined in human capital, structural capital or relational capital and therefore are interpreted as describing one aspect of firm’s activity.
One of the most important activities of enterprises today is responsible entrepreneurship. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities can help to forge a stronger bond between employees and corporations, can boost morale, and can help both employees and employers feel more connected with the world around them. Moreover, the growing importance of this concept results from the fact that it is perceived as an effective tool for increasing competitiveness, improving the image of the company, or contributing to the generation of higher profits. In today’s world, an active commitment to social responsibility is becoming more common for a company.
CSR and Socially Responsible Investing Strategies in Transitioning and Emerging Economies is an essential reference source that identifies the scale and scope of implementation of CSR and socially responsible investing strategies and standards in companies operating in different transitioning and emerging economies as well as assessing the global effects of these activities. Featuring research on topics such as economic growth, responsible investing, and business ethics, this book is ideally designed for managers, executives, directors, corporate professionals, government officials, industry leaders, academicians, students, and researchers in the fields of international economics, international business, marketing, finance management, and public relations.
Value-based management concept regards corporate value growth for all stakeholders as the main company purpose which nowadays is primarily provided by intangible assets. However analysis of the process of converting intellectual capital (IC) and its components into the company financial performance is still a challenging research area. The main aim of the current study is to investigate the intellectual capital transformation into the company value on the basis of available information.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value. The article investigates traditional methods of company's value assessment and the evidence that the application of these methods is incorrect in the new stage of economy. So it is necessary to create a new method of valuation based on the new main sources of company's success that is its intellectual capital.

At present many industries reveal tendency for setting up of vertically integrated companies (VIC) the structure of which unites all technological processes. This tendency proved its efficiency in oil industry where coordination of all successive stages of technological process, namely, oil prospecting and production -oil transportation - oil processing - oil chemistry - oil products and oil chemicals marketing, is necessary. The article considers specific features of introduction of "personnel management" module at enterprises of oil and gas industry.
