This paper examines the determinants of R&D spending in Malaysia. The study aims to investigate whether variables such as profitability, leverage, growth and director
ownership influence R&D. Analysis of 30 companies from technology industry in ACE Market was selected. Descriptive analysis and linear regression analysis are performed
in this study. By using the regression model, only two variables can be concluded as factors influencing the R&D which are profitability and leverage. Growth and director ownership are not significant in explaining the firms' decisions on R&D expenditure.
