EverEdge are The Brand Valuation Specialists™
A company’s brand is among the most visible
and valuable assets it owns
However, despite being so important, the value of most brands doesn’t appear on the balance sheet.
This stands in contrast to tangible assets such as plant and equipment, which despite being far less valuable are regularly valued and studiously recorded in financial accounts.
Many New Zealand investors, advisors, boards, and management teams believe brands cannot be valued at all. But this is incorrect: brands can be valued but the methodology and factors that need to be considered are very different than for fixed assets.

Building value in your brand
At its inception a new-born brand has little or no value. However, as a company establishes itself and becomes known for providing quality products or services, the brand grows in value. This is largely due to the growing strength of the company's underlying intangible assets, which over time build and add value to the overarching brand.
Think about Coca-Cola. When it started, there was no value in the brand. It was just another carbonated drink sitting in a fridge. However, over time Coca-Cola built its reputation and brand through the development of innovative products, strong supplier and customer relationships, customer loyalty and its ability to keep its recipe (and other trade secrets) under wraps. This was coupled with Coca-Cola’s investment in marketing and protecting (via legal recourse) its brand as it built it into one of the most recognised – and valuable – brands in the world.
How to value your brand
Is my brand an intangible asset?
Valuing a brand is not a simple exercise.
It is imperative to not simply deal with the brand itself, but to also understand the strengths and risks associated with the intangible assets underlying the brand, and how these contribute (or detract) from its value.
EverEdge will help you understand:
How much value (if any) sits in the brand as a distinct entity independent of the company’s other assets
What the brand’s current value is alongside an assessment of its potential to generate future value, and
Where in its evolution the brand is and what level (up or down) of brand velocity it is experiencing.

During the sale process I was working closely with Craig and the team. Selling a business is always a tough time and I found the EverEdge team extremely professional during the whole process. Nothing was a problem for them and for me this made it a much easier process. They guided me and my team through the whole process and we achieved an excellent outcome.
Ross Pratt, CEO
RAILBLAZA LTD & NTD PLASTICS LTD
Richard and team at EverEdge understand the “hidden” assets/intangible assets. They were able to articulate and record our delivered vision and business proposition so independent outsiders can easily grasp the vision and value of our business.
Richard Guy, Director
I approached EverEdge to do a high level valuation on the RAILBLAZA business to clearly outline the value of intangible assets. After receiving the valuation and working closely with Craig Margolius and his team, I was so impressed that I approached Paul Adams to see if EverEdge could handle the sale of the company.
I would thoroughly recommend EverEdge to anyone wanting to sell a business that has hidden intangible assets to ensure they get the best outcome for their sale.
