Intellectual Property Valuation
Entities require intellectual property valuation for numerous critical reasons, including pricing and strategic purposes, to secure financing or for tax compliance. TCG possesses industry leading expertise in the valuation of intangibles and Intellectual Property (IP), which includes marketing, customers, contract and technology related resources. Valuation is often a controversial and complex subject. It requires in depth understanding of the market, the asset in question, the company and its competitors, financial and non-financial information, as well as factors such as the legal and regulatory environment. Valuation advice needs the right blend of analysis, experience and professional judgment.
Many businesses owners know their companies inside and out. Yet, they rarely know one critical fact – how much their company is actually worth on the open market. Entities use business valuation whenever you need to know what a company is worth. The measure depends on the business’ ability to produce economic benefits for its owners. It also depends on the risk of owning the business. Valuation sets an asking price for a business sale, construct an offer to buy a business, get a bank loan, write a buy-sell agreement, settle a disagreement with a partner, or defend your business value in a legal dispute.
