IP Valuation advice can be required in a number of distressed scenarios. From a director facing an insolvency event, to an insolvency professional wishing to understand the value of the IP assets prior to carrying out a marketing exercise/pre-pack sale, or simply where a global offer for Company assets has been made and an apportionment figure is being contemplated.
The Metis Partners Intellectual Property Valuation Opinion™ is a valuation product which identifies and assesses the IP assets existing within an insolvent company, and provides a statement on value on a distressed basis.
We have provided our Intellectual Property Valuation Opinion™ to insolvency practitioners appointed to companies in industries including: retail; oil and gas; bio sciences; healthcare; gaming; construction; engineering; media; professional services and many more.
All types of intellectual property assets are identified in our Intellectual Property Valuation Opinion™, including: patents; trade marks; copyright material; design rights; website and domain names; data; software as well as brand value across a certain geographic area or within a niche market.
Our Intellectual Property Valuation Opinions™ are relied upon in a range of insolvency scenarios, including Administrations (pre-packs included) and Liquidations. Our valuations are conducted on a distressed basis, in reference to both company financials and benchmarked against our unique real life primary data which has been gathered from IP asset sales carried out for insolvency practitioners through years of industry practice. By clearly identifying and cataloguing the IP assets in a case, our IP Valuation Opinion™ ensures compliance with SIP16. Obtaining an IP Valuation Opinion™ improves the chances of returning fair value to creditors and reduces risk exposure.
In order to provide the Metis Partners Intellectual Property Valuation Opinion™, a two stage process is followed:
In determining our fees, we use a matrix which takes into account turnover, the likely level of the valuation and the overall context (i.e. the risk involved in giving valuation advice) as well as timescales, the complexity of the issues and the length of the Valuation Opinion.
We aim to complete valuation assignments within 10-14 days, however this can be accelerated to 2-3 days where required.
Our award-winning team’s experience in relation to IP assets in distress is second to none. Our innovative service line and expertise has been recognised by both insolvency practitioners and relevant industry bodies as an innovative and efficient approach to valuing intellectual property assets in insolvency scenarios.
We were delighted to win ‘Asset Valuer/Auctioneer of the Year’ in the Insolvency & Rescue Awards 2011 and to be nominated for three consecutive years since.
