MOST RELEVANT ISSUES
Within infringement processes a patent (family) or even a patent portfolio value is necessary to know.
Benchmarking based on patents (and utility models), activation of patents in the balance as intangible fixed assets, mareting intelligences in terms of innovation strength
FIND POTENTIAL LICENCEES
Companies with patents in a certain field are also potential licencees. So looking for assignees with high patent values filtered by certain technology field leads to licencee prospects.
When Nortel Co. was bankrupt in 2009 the average 5 years book value was "only" 1.2bn USD. The patent portfolio was sold a year later for 4.5 bn USD. A huge asset that was not seeable before.
TAX & TRANSFER PRICING
When transferring a patent into a foreign entity, the value needs to be determined. This may also be required when a patent is used in different entities.
MERGER & ACQUISITION (M&A)
When looking for a technical or natural scientific candidate to buy or invest in, the patents of this company and their values are essential.
