Valuation of Emerging Technologies

About the Course:

The overwhelming value of most early-stage companies resides in their intellectual assets. However, senior managers of such companies usually have no idea how to value their inventions. This is unfortunate as the inability to value intangible assets puts companies at a severe disadvantage when trying to monetize their discoveries through capital raises, licensing, joint-ventures or sales.

Inventors, investors, patentees, licensors and licensees must be able to articulate the value of their patents and emerging technologies. Otherwise, they will never receive the valuations that they deserve.

This seminar will unveil the application of the Total Value Extraction (TVE) framework for valuing technologies. Unlike static valuation methods, Total Value Extraction is a dynamic valuation framework that takes into account many different licensing structuring options such as milestones, variable royalty rates, royalty stacking, division of fields of use licensing, and sublicensing potential.

This seminar will introduce you to the Patent Valuation Gauntlet (PVG). In deriving the value of a patent, PVG takes into account commercial value, assertion value, blocking value, cross-licensing value, reputational value as well as patent invalidity risks and design around risks. The PVG worksheet contains more than 400 issues that should be considered when calculating the value of a patent.

This seminar will compare the utility and results generated by TVE to a host of traditional valuation methods such as:

  • Cost Method
  • Market Method
  • Income Method
  • Decision Trees
  • Competitive Advantage Valuation
  • 25% Rule
  • The Monte Carlo Method
  • Real Options Method
  • Binomial Method
  • Probability Weighted Expected Return Method
  • Relief from Royalty Method
  • Excess Earnings Method

Additional Valuation Considerations to be Discussed Include:

  • Citation Analysis
  • Enforceability
  • Current Impact
  • Claim Scope Breadth
  • Technology Strength
  • Validity Confidence
  • Research Intensity
  • Litigation Avoidance
  • Science Strength
  • Partnering Licensing Potential
  • Innovation Cycle Time
  • Technology Cogency
