Fact: No other corporate asset has as much leverage or strategic significance as intellectual property.
Ownership of key patents allows companies to commercialize breakthrough discoveries.
Ownership of key patents can be used to generate hundreds of millions in damages from infringers.
Violations of others’ patents can result in being slapped with injunctive relief and therefore deprived of the right to sell your products.
Potentially catastrophic IP litigation can open the doors to lucrative licensing agreements and can even lead to corporate combinations.
Fact: Determining which facets of intellectual property will contribute to corporate wealth is exceedingly difficult: Over 85% of the market valuation of the S&P 500 is represented by intangible assets. However, fewer than 3% of patents generate any royalty income.
Fact: Intellectual property and intangible assets resident in corporations are almost completely disregarded by the institutional investment community.
Making investment decisions without considering the intellectual assets held by the target company is tantamount to investment analysis malpractice.
Join us for a unique seminar on monetizing and valuing the intellectual property and intangible assets held by companies. Don’t miss this opportunity to listen to world renowned authorities explain how to apply the metrics for measuring corporations’ most valuable assets.
