Highlight of this IP Sale
This assignment was unique in that we were only appointed to market and negotiate the sale of the brand related assets of FTR Moto, however, our extensive experience in valuing brand-related IP assets enabled us to communicate the full commercial value of this brand, and help potential acquirers envision its purpose in a future business stream. Despite the challenges of the lack of complementary assets in this assignment, we were able to exceed expectations and secure a five-figure return. The FTR Moto brand has been successfully launched in India.
