Does IP have value in Financial Distress?
For companies in financial distress or undergoing a corporate restructuring or transformation project , it is important to identify and appraise all of the key assets of the business that will either facilitate a successful turnaround or be sold to recover value, should the worst case occur.
Our IP valuations are being used by:
- Bankruptcy and restructuring advisors: identifying IP value that can be recovered from distressed businesses to facilitate a turnaround or to maximize recovery for creditors.
- For lenders making decisions on new or stretch lending: wanting to understand the ‘downside’ valuation – what is the IP likely to be worth if the worst were to happen and IP is sold to recover value. We know, because we not only value IP assets, we also specialise in selling IP in such scenarios
