Highlight of this IP Sale
We conducted a thorough IP discovery exercise and identified a number of critical IP assets which contributed to underpinning the Company’s business model. Through communicating the extent of this IP portfolio in our marketing materials, we were able to exceed expectations in the final offer price and sold the IP to a buyer operating in the same space, ensuring the IP will be commercialized fully in the future.
