Intellectual company valuation
Any time you’re considering making a change to your business, such as a merger, sale or acquisition, it’s important to have a complete valuation conducted on every aspect of your business. In recent years, it’s become more popular to consider not only all of the tangible assets of a business that you can see, but the intangible assets that you can’t as well, also known as intellectual property. Most business valuation firms will include this type of appraisal in its valuation for free, as a form of goodwill valuation.
Intangible assets or intellectual property of a business includes anything that makes your products branded and marketable. This means trademarks, copyrights, patents, engineering drawings, software and trade secrets, and even your customer relationships are considered intellectual property. All of these things can add value to your business, so it’s a good idea to use a valuation firm that offers goodwill valuation for these types of things. Make sure they know what they’re doing though, because this process is relatively new and for the numbers to mean anything, they’ve got to do it right.
There are two different methodologies that a valuation firm could use for intellectual property valuation- enabling or blocking. Enabling allows a company to look at their intangible assets with intent to utilize or commercialize the intellectual property, while blocking is an effort to manage the competition and ensure that their business is a step ahead of the other businesses in the industry. Once it’s been decided which methodology will be used, an intangible valuation model is created based on this framework.

As a rule, the form of public lectures does not allow the fielding of questions, comments and criticisms from the audience. Furthermore, providing for a Question and Answer session in a large auditorium with an overflowing audience becomes a physical and logistical challenge. Nevertheless, Noam Chomsky indicated in advance to the organisers his clear preference ...s, he doesnt have to talk about something that happened two hundred years ago, which was talked about more strongly then. He can talk about decisions that he made and give the reasons for them. The way John Quincy Adams did. He was talking about his own crimes.
Thank you and thats about all the questions we can take.
[Prolonged audience applause for Noam Chomsky.]
