What is patent valuation?

Patent valuation is a method used to determine the actual market value of a patent or patent portfolio. Inventors or organizations must conduct patent valuation when considering negotiating deals such as the sale and licensing of patents, coalitions, and acquisitions of intellectual property. There are many common techniques used for the valuation of intellectual property rights. When an analyst values intellectual property, they normally look at the intended future earning potential of that asset or company. The work of the analyst is to determine if an investment or an organization is undervalued or overvalued by the market while conducting a valuation.

Purpose of conducting a valuation

Evaluation is a crucial process since it can help identify mislaid securities or ascertain what projects a company should invest in. The main reasons are:

Purchasing or selling a business: Purchasers and sellers normally have a difference in the value of a business. At this point, if they opt for a patent valuation, they will get a clear picture of the market value of the related business, and they can wisely decide whether to sell or purchase, and at what cost.

Strategic planning: Any company that is planning to invest in a project should be aware of its future growth and financial value. Therefore, any investment decision is essentially a mini valuation depending on the prospect of future profitability and value creation.

Capital financing: When negotiating with banks or possible investors for funding, a correct patent valuation might be useful. Demonstrating the worth of a patent and its potential to generate cash flow can increase credibility with lenders and equity inventors.
