Intangible Asset Valuation
EverEdge are The Intangible Asset Valuation Specialists™
Intangible assets account for 90% of the enterprise value of companies in the S&P 500.
They are now the primary driver of company 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 (and there is essentially no correlation between cost and value with intangible assets).
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 is captured within its business valuation, whether within New Zealand or overseas.

Hidden value, hidden risk
A report from the UK Treasury highlighted that although the world’s five most valuable companies are together estimated to be worth US$4.6 trillion, their balance sheets report just US$225 billion of tangible assets.
The other US$4.3 trillion of value is missing in action.
This is a major problem for shareholders managers and directors because it means that:
Many intangible asset-rich businesses are significantly undervalued relative to their true value.
Valuable intangible assets are left out of financial accounts, creating leading to value and risk remaining hidden.

Reliable, robust, and defensible intangible asset valuations
Because intangible assets have been largely ignored by accounting standards, intangible asset valuation is an area that remains poorly understood.
Many accountants and valuation providers erroneously claim, “you cannot value data, brands, content, patents etc.”
This is incorrect.
While more complex than a conventional valuation, there are methods of valuing intangible assets that are reliable, accurate, and robust. Using a proprietary three-factor model, EverEdge’s Keystone™ Intangible Asset Valuation methodology utilizes both traditional quantitative methods but importantly also analyzes the Contextual and Qualitative factors. This is critical as these factors are primary drivers of intangible asset value.
This is more than theory. EverEdge’s Keystone™ Valuations have been instrumental in assisting our clients to raise more than $1.5 billion dollars in capital and in ensuring that the true value of all our client assets are articulated and recognised.
EverEdge Keystone™ Intangible Asset Valuations provide companies and investors with robust, defensible valuations that articulate the true value of your company or critical intangible assets.
We really enjoyed working with Michael and his team and learning more about the Intangible Assets within our Business.
