EverEdge BenchMark™ Valuation Services (DRAFT)
Intangible asset valuations
Traditional valuations tend to focus on the balance sheet and, by default, a company's tangible assets. However, in today's knowledge-based economy intangible assets now account for more than 90% of the market value of the S&P500. These assets are now the primary driver of most companies profitability and growth.
Unfortunately, intangible assets are essentially ignored by modern accounting standards. They either never make the balance sheet, are lost under the amorphous term “goodwill,” or are listed at cost, which is an issue as there can be no correlation between cost and value when it comes to intangible assets.
Our valuations assist our clients to understand the true value of all their assets - whether they are listed on the balance sheet or not.
EverEdge Valuation Services
Conventional valuation methods tend to significantly under-value intangible assets and intangible asset-rich companies. EverEdge helps ensure that the true value of all a company's assets are captured within it's business valuation.
We have extensive experience in providing a full range of valuation services:
A Proprietory Model
Using a proprietary three-factor model, an EverEdge Valuation utilizes traditional quantitative methods, but importantly also analyzes contextual and qualitative factors, to determine the true value of a company's tangible and intangible assets. This is critical as these factors are primary drivers of intangible asset value.
This enables both companies and investors to:
Make significantly more informed decisions regarding exits, capital raises, and M&A, JV or license transactions
Better articulate value to potential investors or acquirers to drive increased pre-money or exit values or to potential JV or alliance partners
More robustly defend license or tax transactions or litigation positions
Make better decisions regarding which R&D projects are likely to generate the best “bang for buck"
Because we review a broader range of factors, an EverEdge Valuation report tends to be more expansive, with a greater emphasis on prose, explanation, and evidence. Our valuations are robust, defensible and help our clients to clearly articulate the true value of their company or individual intangible assets.
EverEdge valuations have been accepted by the NYSE, NASDAQ, SGX, ASX, NZX, CATALIST & more; and meet International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) guidelines.
