Valuing Intangible Assets & a $400M raise - EverEdge July 2017

Welcome to EverEdge’s July Newsletter. This month we focus on one of the most important issues in finance and investment today: valuation of intangible assets and intellectual property.
Intangible asset valuation is important because intangible assets now account for over 87% of all company value. These assets are not just the largest repository of value they are also the primary driver of enterprise performance. Unfortunately the area is poorly understood and traditional valuation methods are often inaccurate or misleading. The result: investors frequently materially under or over pay for companies and assets.
Click here to watch Paul Adams discuss the importance of valuing Intangible Assets, why Intangible Asset valuation is challenging and EverEdge's unique approach to assisting valuation.
We are frequently asked to value intangible assets for mergers and acquisitions, investment, intangible asset transactions (e.g. licenses and royalties) and tax, transfer pricing and purchase price allocation. Our valuation experience has led EverEdge to be named as one of the few providers accredited to Singapore’s world leading Intellectual Property Financing Scheme. Last week Paul Davies, Head of IP, gave expert testimony in the High Court on the topic of royalty valuation.
In this issue we explore issues around intangible asset valuation
here and we also look at a text book case of why valuation matters: a recent EverEdge valuation that supported the largest startup capital raise in Asia – a cool $400,000,000.
On Friday 04th August Michael Masterson will be presenting to the New South Wales Chartered Accountants ANZ Valuation Specialists on how to value intangible assets. This follows similar highly praised events in Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane earlier this year.
In this issue we also celebrate EverEdge's Auckland based Paul Adams (CEO) and Paul Davies (Head of IP) having been named among the world’s elite intellectual property strategists. This is the 5th and 3rd year running respectively for the two – read more about the awards
Have a great July,
The EverEdge Team.

Feature this Month

Intangible Asset (Intellectual Property) Valuations

Most weeks we see 10 to 15 “new” ideas. Some will change the world, other won’t make it out of the garage or lab. The one thing they all have in common is that the promoter thinks they are highly valuable. Those who have been asked to invest in or pay for these ideas tend to be a lot more circumspect. Interestingly, it’s not always clear who is more right.
