a study on why compaines change logos

i agree with sofiapsomi that companies should not change logos often because it leads to lot of confusion among the target customers.
however sometimes if the logo adopted is not giving desired results you may change the logos the reasons could be
1. the current logo does not communicate the business and the products properly to the target customers
2.the currest logo is not appealing
3. the company shifts its focus on new segment/business which is not represented in the logo
4. takeover of the company by a new company
5. merger of the companies where the other company is much bigger and is being recognised more by the customers so its logo will be new logo of merged company.
6. merger of the companies where both comapnies are equal and hence new logo is designed to incorporate the core business/values of both companies.
however i do not agree with Jared that the companies change logos because the management gets bored with the current logo it looks funny to me.
hope this helps you

You might want to check a previous discussion, Rebranding Do's and Don't's (
). It has some wonderful links to examples.
