Presented clinical data can be confusing, complicated, biased and even contradictory at times. Biotech companies often purposely delay both positive and negative data for their own purposes and may only report a portion of the data from their trials. Potential marketing value for a drug can also be elusive with differing patient targets for…

Customer capital valuation

Balance sheet management is not fun. It is much more exciting to land a big order or project. Managing receivables and payables is something company owners leave to the accountants. This is a mistake. When companies are growing, letting receivables run can lead to a cash crunch that can derail things. Moreover, a tremendous amount of cash (and consequently value) is locked into your working capital. Unlocking it means more free cash flow for debt repayment, reinvestment, or issuing dividends. Potential buyers notice companies that generate free cash flow, and pay a premium for…

Copyright valuation

Copyright valuation generally depends on the value of future revenue attached to the copyright. This future copyright value is then discounted using the discounted cash flow methodology (DCF) to arrive at the present value of those cash flows. Each type of copyright has key sensitivities to consider such as the duration of the copyright and the expected lifetime of its creator. Another key consideration during copyright valuation is what drives the value of the copyright. For instance, a living musician generally supports their back catalogue of recordings through personal appearances…
