Effect of Brand Extension on Brand Image: a Study in the Brazilian Context

The article investigates the consequences of brand extension in the Brazilian context, analyzing how the variables relating to the parent brand (quality, similarity of categories, familiarity and customer attitude) influence brand image after extension, and the variation in customer’s interest in the original product category, before and after extension. Four hypotheses were tested through regression equations and two through mean comparisons. Results confirmed that the effects of the extension strategy occurs regardless of the product category under study and type of extension. Also, customer’s interest in the original product category proved to be affected negatively after extension.
