Patent Portfolio Valuation

Why Value your Patents?

Establishing a value for your patents enables your company to enhance decision making related to these strategic assets. This can be particularly useful when assessing the value of a patent portfolio which is to be sold, licensed or acquired. It is also a useful resource during capital raising and due diligence, for instance in a prospectus for a private offering or an initial public offering (IPO) or in a divestment.

  • Valuation support for corporate decision making
  • Confirming which assets are key value drivers
  • Patent Monetization, Debt & Equity Financing
  • M&A Pricing

Advantages of a Patent Portfolio Valuation:

A key advantage may be to increase the profitability of your business through licensing, selling or raising finance against the patents. For high tech firms that are technology driven, a patent valuation can better establish the net worth of the business; especially if it is an intellectually rich organization i.e. excellent people, skills, technology, IP (patents) but perhaps less value held in customers, revenues, brand, channels.
