Non-physical assets explanation

Editor’s Note: Chris Martenson of Peak Prosperity explains the mechanics of a hyperinflationary scenario that could wipe out the savings and wealth of anyone holding a doomed currency. In this case, Martenson focuses his efforts on the US dollar by detailing specific historical and modern day instances of currencies that have either lost favor and been shunned, or were destroyed by their respective government. Without giving away too much of Chris’ analysis, what this boils down to is that you want to trade out of the dying currency and hold assets that will not lose value as…

Wolseley could sell French business in European U-turn - Daily Telegraph Wolesley also admitted it has taken a one-off restructuring hit of £20m since August 1 last year, in an attempt to reduce long-term costs.

Acquisition of intangible assets

Analysts anticipated another miss ahead of Research In Motion’s first-quarter earnings report on Thursday as sales continue to stall ahead of the struggling smartphone vendor’s first BlackBerry 10 smartphone launch, which is expected this October. RIM warned in late May that it would likely see an operating loss in the first fiscal quarter — its first net quarterly loss since fiscal 2004 — but the Street’s consensus ranged from a profit of $0.01 per share on $3.1 billion in sales to a net loss of $0.03 per share. The numbers are now in and RIM reported on Thursday that it lost…

Definition of organizational resources

Merriam-Webster defines culture as “the set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices that characterizes an institution or organization.” This is only part of the full definition, yet it clearly describes the foundation of organizational culture. Organizational culture is represented by your company’s language, decision making, symbols, stories and daily working practices. However, you need to clearly define what those are in order to establish what type of culture you desire in your workplace.  Here’s how to start: 1. Define your company’s mission and vision. These two…

How to sell intangible assets?

Please note : While I specifically refer to the Australian equivalents of International Accounting Standards, paragraph references and details are equally applicable to the IAS counterpart. AASB 138 is equivalent to IAS 38. Accounting students at university appear to have misconceptions about intangible assets. Whenever I bring up intangible assets in conversation, the first thing that springs to mind for the student is goodwill. This is probably reasonable considering that goodwill is used as a prime example of an intangible asset in almost all accounting courses. This creates…

Intellectual assets reporting

A few months ago a post on Joff Wild’s IAM blog sparked a great debate about the valuation of IP, the difference in valuation contexts, and the viability of a practical approach.  Jumping into the discussion late, Michael Martin of Broken Symmetry posted a “final word” comment on Wild’s post and on Broken Symmetry.  A few of his words moved me to revisit the IP valuation discussion on IP Prospective with a few of the standard-setting initiatives that have commenced, old and new.  One of the more interesting notes from Martin’s post reads as follows: IP valuations are often done…

How to buy intellectual assets?

‘IP: the new currency’ was the theme of this year’s 10th annual Europe Asia Patent and Patent Information Conference (EAP2IC) conference in Singapore, which took place on Friday. It proved to be a timely topic, as a number of speakers - local and international - provided evidence from their own experience that IP is increasingly a mainstream concern. A good example of the growing interest was provided by Adrian Eberle, head of global technology at DKSH. He explained that DKSH, a Swiss market expansion company that focuses on Asia, has just recently begun to trade intellectual…

How to sell non-physical assets?

One of the reliable ways that a company can build a long-lasting, sustainable competitive advantage in the tech business is to transition from building just a product into building a whole platform. Building a “platform” usually means allowing third-parties a way to plug in to your product and offer platform-level services so that they can leverage your core product and build on top of it. In effect, you build an eco-system around your product, extending the benefits of your product to your partners and to your users. If done right, it results in a win-win-win: Your users get…
