Performance of Intellectual Capital (IC) in an enterprise is becoming a critical success factor. The paper measures, evaluates and ranks the IC performance of the second largest stock exchange of Pakistan, the Lahore Stock Exchange index companies (LSE-25). It uses popular IC model, Value Added Intellectual Coefficient (VAICTM) developed by Ante Pulic in 1998. Six-year data of LSE-25 was obtained from audited financial reports to calculate human capital, structural capital and capital employed efficiency of companies related to different industrial sectors. Findings indicate that oil & gas, chemical and cement sectors show top performance; banking sector shows average performance; and public sector companies show least performance. The study is a pioneering attempt to measure the IC performance in Pakistan using cross sectional data.
