The paper proposes a new methodology for evaluating the market value of firms (QuIC – Quantitative Intellectual Capital-based methodology for Firm Valuation) that considers Intellectual Capital (IC) as an important factor that can influence the overall value.
Findings show that this approach gives a more fair evaluation able of taking account of the “hidden” value that could remain unconsidered when applying “traditional” valuation approaches. In fact, findings demonstrated that, from a financial standpoint, the difference between DCF and QuIC evaluation can be recognised as the worth of intellectual capital assets.


Keywords –Discounted Cash Flow, Intellectual Capital, Financial performances, Market Value.
