To enlarge the sphere of intellectual capital investigation we analyze its components impact on M&A value. To achieve this goal, theoretical aspects of the intellectual capital and M&A were investigated. Also we regarded methods of the intellectual capital measurement and chose the most appropriate – Value Added Intellectual Coefficient. We use this method to estimate the elements of intellectual capital and to construct regression model to find the extent of its influence on M&A value. We have proved that there is a positive impact intellectual capital elements on M&A value of the pharmaceutical companies. It has been found that degree of the influence varies between the components of the intellectual capital and between the organizations of different size. Intellectual capital elements have negative influence on M&A value in the smallest companies. However, the larger the company the greater the positive side effect on the M&A value of intellectual capital components.
