Abstract: The main motive of this current study is to measure the efficiency of intellectual capital along with its components by using modified value-added intellectual coefficient (MVAIC) and to find its impact on the market as well as financial performance of firms in China. This tool is the modified form of Pulics' VAIC tool which is widely used in numerous studies worldwide in order to find empirical evidence between the relations among intellectual capital with firms' market value. MVAIC is adopted in this study for the very first time in China which is the unique point of this study. The results show the cement industry has a different relationship between intellectual capital and market value and financial performance as compared to other sectors of the economy. This research is of enormous importance that can help CEOs, managers, shareholders as well as investors to analyse firms' performance and to obtain information that is explicitly missing in the financial reports of the firms.
