This study provides evidence that property, plant and equipment and asset revaluation reserves of Malaysian and Indonesian companies are value relevant. The result implicates that the adoption of Malaysian Financial Reporting Standard 116 (MFRS116-Property, plant and equipment in Malaysia and Financial Accounting Standard 16 (PSAK 16) in Indonesia are value relevant.
