EverEdge are The Intangible Asset Specialists™


Unlocking Value from Distressed Assets

When a distressed situation occurs, receivers and liquidators tend to focus their attention on cash, cash equivalents, and fixed assets to repay creditors or equity holders.

However, a company’s intangible assets, which today account for more than 85% of the enterprise value of companies in the S&P 500, are often overlooked.

It is possible to recover substantially more from a failed business than many people realize if the value of a failed or failing company’s intangible assets can be unlocked.

EverEdge are the intangible asset insolvency specialists and can help you preserve and monetize intangible asset value in a distressed situation.

Preserving value

EverEdge helps New Zealand companies and investors to preserve value in instances where the company becomes insolvent.

Where a distressed entity remains intact, the intangible assets can have a higher value in the hands of a third party than the business itself.

For instance, you may have a product design and associated brand that under-performed in the hands of management, resulting in poor financial outcomes.

In the hands of an acquirer (especially a larger company) with stronger market or distribution channels or more cost-effective production the intangible assets in design and brand could be worth far more to the acquirer than the original owner.

Case Study: There is always value to be found in any situation

EverEdge was approached by investors in a failed start-up who wanted support to identify whether there was any salvageable value in the company. The management team were long gone and the only assets remaining were intangible. The investors wanted to understand if these assets were worth anything.

EverEdge determined the company was sitting on highly valuable intangible assets unidentified by management. We then identified buyers, prepared sales documentation, ran a sales process and ultimately sold the intangible assets for tens of millions of dollars, returning $45 for every $1 the investors had put into the start-up.

In all probability, the investors made more money from the start up failing than if it had “succeeded” in its target market.

Whether you are a company owner, investor, debt holder, receiver, or liquidator - we have a strategic plan for you.

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


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.

Ross Pratt, CEO


We engaged EverEdge to provide us with a specialist valuation that reflected the true value of our business and the intangible assets we had developed through many years of R&D.

I strongly recommend EverEdge to any company involved in M&A or capital transactions that call for valuation or assessment of intangible assets.
