Why do I need an IP valuation?

Are you developing tech? Are you spending on marketing and brand? Do you document your unique business processes? Do you have a ‘secret sauce’ that enables you to generate more revenue or profit than your competitors – if the answer is yes then you are investing in intellectual property (IP), BUT who else knows this but you? How do you articulate the intellectual property value of this investment when it is hidden from your balance sheet?

The benefits of identifying and valuating your IP assets are significant:

  • For growth and business transformation: businesses that rely on intellectual property valuations to make informed decisions about IP protection, ROI on marketing and R&D innovation, IP licensing, or to demonstrate to lenders that they have well-protected assets that are securing future cash flows.
  • For M&A and exit: working sell-side to ensure acquirers recognize all the IP value that has been created, but not included in the balance sheet, and providing that all-important intellectual property narrative that demonstrates how these IP assets are used to drive growth and margins, now and post-acquisition.
