What is an IP Valuation
Knowing the economic value of your intellectual property is vital for strategic decision making and there are many business situations where it's required.
The valuation of a company for the purposes of a merger, acquisition, joint venture or bankruptcy.
Negotiations to sell or license intellectual property rights
Support in situations of patent conflict or dispute
Fund raising through bank loans or venture capital
Assisting internal decision making for patent protection strategies
For accounting and taxation purposes
For example… in order sell, license your IP or enter into any commercial arrangements you need to put value on it. You cannot merely pluck a figure out of the air and expect the other party to accept it. You need to prove and quantify (within reason) it’s value, otherwise it’s worth as much as the other party is prepared to pay for it.
