We investigate the association between brand-equity measures and business-unit financial performance. Brand-equity measures may complement historic accounting information in explaining business-unit financial performance. Capitalizing on a unique data set, we find an association between some (yet not all) brand-equity measures and contemporaneous as well as future business-unit financial performance. Our results provide important insights for both managers and designers of performance-measurement systems.
