Patents and know-how, software, trademarks, designs and models, websites, domain names, etc. are valuable intangible assets that can significantly increase the financial value of your company. To value them, we evaluate several elements such as the title of intellectual property, the market and the fields of application of the right to be evaluated, the economic elements linked to the patent (brand, software…), the royalties or income linked to its operation.

2- WEBSITE OR MOBILE APPLICATION Valuation

If you own a website (showcase site, e-commerce site, blog…) or an application and you want to know its value and potential, know that a website is an intangible asset. which can be valued, just like a patent, a brand, software or know-how.

Many criteria come into play in the valuation of a website. Its value will depend in particular on its content, its attendance, the income it generates and its development potential in the short and medium term.

3-PRE DUE DILIGENCE

Due diligence is an important step in the fundraising process. It allows investors to check the data of the business plan, to look for possible “hidden defects”, to check the evaluation of the valuation of the startup, to assess the credibility of the performance indicators proposed by the entrepreneur, to assess the risk of the entrepreneurial project and assess and quantify the profitability of the investment for the investor. In short, due diligence allows investors to ensure that their investment is safe and profitable. This is why it is important to prepare this step well before fundraising. The duration of due diligence for an SME fundraiser can vary. In general, it takes between 6 and 9 months between the start and the outcome of a fundraiser. However, given the stakes, fundraising can be long (9 months to 1 year). It is important to take the time to prepare the due diligence to facilitate the audit by investors and increase the chances of a successful fundraising.

Pre-due diligence makes it possible to prepare for this operation to save time and facilitate operations. Monitoring with a certifiable ICV app and protection of intellectual property with a trusted third party are major assets that facilitate work and create confidence in drafting the term. sheet and the closing. These steps can help save up to 3 months on due diligence.

4-DOMAINE NAME Valuation

Having a website is essential for any company wishing to be visible, develop and acquire notoriety. The website not only makes it possible to provide important information to customers and to present the offers of products or services of the company, but also to increase the chances of contacts and to benefit from increased visibility. It is a real showcase for the company, in France and internationally. The domain name is therefore a distinctive sign of the company.

Often associated with a brand, the domain name is a positioning and identification tool for the company that uses it, for example during an Internet search. With the new types of extensions available, choosing a quality domain name is even more important. Some extensions or keywords are very popular and bring value to the companies that hold them.

Domain names can be valued in the same way as a trademark or a patent. It can be useful to know the value of a domain name in several situations, in particular during a contribution to the capital of the company, during the purchase or sale of a domain name, during the transfer of your company.

To enhance your domain name, our consultants analyze several criteria such as the legal aspects, the target market(s), the economic and financial parameters related to the operation and the possible risks. These criteria are taken into account and processed according to a method developed by Intangible Capital ValueValorisation to establish the objective value of your domain name.

We work closely with the experts at Intangible Capital Value to assess your protection strategy and all the legal aspects related to your domain name. Our quantified conclusions and our possible recommendations are presented to you during a dedicated meeting at the end of the mission.

Our missions of financial valuation of intangible assets (including domain names) also include participation in a meeting to present the conclusions of the report to a contribution auditor. To carry out these studies, our firm uses a method widely recognized by players in the world of innovation. We are proud to display a 100% success rate on these services.

Intangible Capital Value Valorisation has developed a SAAS platform to digitize work, make it accessible and use the results on a daily basis. We use the main valuation methods and you can validate the one that suits you according to the KPIs, the progress and the desire to justify your evaluation. All work is auditable and complies with international regulations.

5-Patent Valuation

An invention patent is an intangible asset that can be valued, just like software, a brand, a company or know-how. A patent provides a competitive advantage to its holder by giving him a monopoly and giving him the right to prohibit the reproduction of the invention during its period of validity. It is also a guarantee of seriousness for external funding organizations such as BPI France and regional funders, because it shows the potential and quality of the company as well as the commitment of its managers.

A well valued patent can therefore increase the value of your company and be a source of income. It is not necessary to wait for a patent to be exploited to value it, except in the case where a simple accounting valuation is requested.

There are several reasons for which a study of the financial valuation of a patent can be useful, in particular to know the value of its patent, to reinforce equity by a capital contribution of the patent(s), to reduce the risk of dilution in the event of fundraising, promoting the sale of a company, increasing its ability to obtain public funding, justifying the sale value of a license or rights by an expert or during a dispute.

In the event of collective proceedings, a company that owns valued patents can take these intangible assets into account and, with the contribution of the appointed agent, sell them, pledge them or bring in investors interested in the technology on the basis of their value certified by an expert. Thus, in the event of a company filing for bankruptcy, valuing its patents can offer an emergency solution to promote its recovery.

We use the main valuation methods and you can validate the one that suits you according to the KPIs, the progress and the desire to justify your evaluation . All work is auditable and complies with international regulations .

6- PATENT sale of license or licencing

When it comes to assessing the price of a patent license, the parties involved enjoy a great deal of freedom in terms of remuneration. Indeed, it is possible to provide for a fixed price and royalties proportional to the exploitation of the patent.

Very often, the license contract provides for the payment of a lump sum as well as the payment of royalties proportional to the exploitation of the patent. With regard to these proportional royalties, it is up to the parties to set the rate and base of these royalties. It is advisable to base the rate of this royalty on an objective and indisputable element such as the turnover excluding tax or the production of the licensee, for example. In any event, it is up to you to draw up the appropriate contract to determine the price of a license to use a patent. It is important to take into account the interests of both parties and to find a balance between the remuneration of the patent holder and the advantages for the licensee. In short, the evaluation of the price of a license to use a patent requires negotiation between the parties involved to find a satisfactory agreement for all.

When it comes to assessing the fees, royalties and other recurring revenues likely to be paid to a company or to any holder of a specific right or intellectual property title, several questions arise. What is the amount of income likely to be received in return for the exploitation of a patent, trademark, other intellectual property title or a contract guaranteeing royalties proportional to the turnover generated ? What is the net present value of the financial flows collected in this way? How are these revenues distributed between several geographical areas?

To answer these questions ICV app to estimate annual royalties. ICV app takes into account several criteria such as the size and growth of the market, market share objectives, forecast prices and sales volumes by geographical area, royalty rates by geographical area, any additional receipts and disbursements, the project discount rate and the number of years taken into account (from 1 to 15 years).

By using this tool, it is possible to estimate the recurring revenues likely to be paid to a company or to any holder of a specific right or intellectual property title. This helps to better understand the value of rights and royalties related to the exploitation of patents, trademarks and other intellectual property titles. In short, this tool can be very useful for evaluating recurring revenues related to the exploitation of specific rights or intellectual property titles.

Jrispreudences must encourage licensees or future licensees to be vigilant on at least three main points when negotiating a license agreement. Of course, all aspects of a licensing agreement should be carefully considered.

Firstly, it is important to pay particular attention to the clauses defining and delimiting the base and the exigibility of the royalty during the negotiation of the license contract. If the licensee is mainly interested in the patented technology, it is recommended to link the payment of the royalty to the validity of the patent.

Second, non-competition clauses, often included in the contract to prevent the licensee from circumventing the patented technology, should not be overlooked. These clauses can considerably broaden the scope of the licensee’s commitments.

Third, it is important to carry out regular legal audits during the execution of the contract and throughout its validity to assess its strategic, commercial and industrial interest.

Finally, do not hesitate to terminate a license agreement if the title or industrial property right concerned no longer has any value for the licensee. Otherwise, it is possible to renegotiate the agreement to restore a balance between the rights conferred by the contract and the exploitation.

 

7- Business valuation

SMIs and SMEs, often subcontractors or sometimes mono-products, may have difficulty maintaining their level of activity in the face of foreign competition. To respond to this situation, Brandon Valorisation has developed the Intangible Capital Value method which allows these companies to diversify their activities by using the industrial resources and know-how at their disposal.

This proprietary method is based on the acquisition of operating licenses for innovative patented products. Indeed, these companies sometimes do not have the human and financial resources to develop their own products. The Intangible Capital Value method enables them to diversify their activities by taking out operating licenses for new products that they will exploit on an exclusive basis.

The relocation of certain industrial activities is an opportunity for these companies to seize. Encouraged and supported by the government since the economic crisis caused by COVID-19, the redeployment of activities must encourage SMIs and industrial SMEs to integrate innovations that correspond to their human resources, know-how and production tools.

The Intangible Capital Value can support you in your development strategy through innovation. The Intangible Capital Value method was developed in response to a request from a regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry to revitalize an employment pool made up of approximately 400 SMIs and SME subcontractors of 3 major regional contractors . Since then, we have expanded, adapted and perfected our method to meet the specific needs of SMIs/SMEs.

Br Intangible Capital Value also offers a dedicated section where you can find patents open to licensing. If any of them seem to correspond to your activities, contact us for more information.

Calling on Intangible Capital Value can allow you to take advantage of the incentive policy for the relocation of industrial activities encouraged and partly financed by the Regions. You can thus penetrate a new market by using your experience and your human resources, position your company in a situation of exclusivity on a market, maintain and develop your know-how, enhance the intangible assets of your company, perpetuate your company and create jobs.

Intangible Capital Value Valorisation has developed a SAAS platform to digitize work, make it accessible and use the results on a daily basis. We use the main valuation methods and you can validate the one that suits you according to the KPIs, the progress and the desire to justify your evaluation. All work is auditable and complies with international regulations.

8 – KNOW HOW Valuation

Know-how is the result of professional experience. It is a set of technical skills and/or specific knowledge acquired in a specific field of activity. In an industrial company, for example, know-how may apply to a particular mode of operation for design, production or customer service. In the medical sector, it can be a specific gesture of a surgeon. The know-how makes it possible to differentiate a quality of service and to increase the brand image of a company.

This know-how remains secret and provides a competitive advantage to the company that owns it. They are not described in the text of the patent. Whether they are patentable or not, know-how is valuable intangible assets.

In industry, know-how is fundamental. Transmitted to employees during internal training, they allow the company to maintain a competitive advantage by having specific skills that the competition does not have. They thus significantly increase the value of the company that owns them.

It is recommended to capitalize on know-how in several situations, in particular when preparing to raise funds, when merging between companies, when selling or acquiring a company, when granting of licenses, when determining the rates for services or when looking for a partner within the framework of an association.

For reasons of objectivity, the financial valuation study of know-how must be carried out by an independent and referenced expert such as Intangible Capital ValueValorisation .

A concrete example is that of technology transfer between a French SMI and a large Chinese group supported by Intangible Capital ValueValorisation . The license for patents and associated know-how has been granted and the know-how essential to obtain the optimum quality of treatment has been valued at a higher value than the patent licenses.

The Intangible Capital ValueValorisation method takes into account several elements to carry out a financial valuation study, in particular the markets in which the company is positioned, its human and financial resources, its mode of operation or business model, its medium-term strategy , its growth prospects, etc.

Intangible Capital Value Valorisation has developed a SAAS platform to digitize work, make it accessible and use the results on a daily basis. We use the main valuation methods and you can validate the one that suits you according to the KPIs, the progress and the desire to justify your evaluation. All work is auditable and complies with international regulations.

 

9- COMPAGNY value

Whatever the size of the company (start-up, SME, VSE…), managers may have to question its value. Assessing and knowing the value of your company is essential in many situations, particularly when raising funds, opening up capital, acquiring or transferring a business.

A company valued by a specialized firm can reassure investors, customers and partners. This facilitates negotiations. However, it is important to note that the accounting valuation of an innovative company only reflects part of its true value.

There are several reasons why a financial valuation study can be useful, especially when preparing for a fundraising, when selling or acquiring a company, when buying or selling of technologies, during a merger between companies (internal or external) or in view of the opening of the capital of a company.

Several criteria are taken into account during a financial valuation study, in particular the company’s market, its assets, its means of industrial production (if applicable), its short and medium-term strategy and its growth prospects (internal or external). This data is analyzed using proprietary methods such as ICV app or ICV app to establish the objective value of your company.

A report containing the quantified conclusions and any recommendations is presented to the managers during a dedicated meeting. This study can be certified by an auditor and used in future negotiations.

Our financial valuation study assignments also include participation in a meeting to present the conclusions of the report to an auditor or an investor. To carry out these studies, our firm uses a method that is widely recognized and appreciated by players in the world of innovation. We are proud to display a 100% success rate in accepting the conclusions of these studies.

Intangible Capital Value Valorisation has developed a SAAS platform to digitize work, make it accessible and use the results on a daily basis. We use the main valuation methods and you can validate the one that suits you according to the KPIs, the progress and the desire to justify your evaluation. All work is auditable and complies with international regulations.

10-legal mediation

Legal mediation is a dispute resolution process that involves the intervention of an impartial third party, called a mediator, to help the parties reach a mutually acceptable solution.

Legal mediation is a method of settling disputes which allows the parties in conflict to find an amicable solution to their dispute with the help of an independent third party, the mediator 1 . Done well, mediation can allow all the parties involved to go beyond legal notions such as guilt and innocence, to better pool perceptions and experiences and determine the real needs and interests of each of the parties, often contributing there much more than the formal hearing to the effective resolution of the real or perceived origin of the conflict.

Mediation can be a quick, inexpensive and confidential way to resolve a dispute without resorting to lengthy and costly legal proceedings. It can also allow the parties to preserve their relationship by finding a mutually satisfactory solution. Mediation can last from a few hours to 2 or 3 months maximum, depending on the difficulties and the time available to each “mediated”. When it succeeds, as in 75% of cases, it leads to an agreement that can be perceived as “win-win” by the parties .

Our method tested in 5 stages : admissibility of the file, exchange with the parties, proposal for a memorandum of understanding drafted by a lawyer according to the legislation of the country and in one or more countries in one or more languages.

11- FINANCING

An SME may need financing for several reasons. Financing can help an SME achieve its short- and long-term objectives by providing it with the financial resources necessary to continue its activities and grow.

A business may need financing to invest in new equipment, develop new products or services, hire additional staff, finance expansion projects, repay debts or deal with temporary financial difficulties. Here are the steps in the financing request process for an SME:

ICV app: your daily

  1. Evaluate your financing needs: determine the amount you need, the duration of the financing, the guarantees you can offer, etc.
  2. Choose the best source of financing: Compare the advantages and disadvantages of different sources of financing to choose the one that best suits your needs and financial situation.
  3. Prepare a financing application file: structure your file in a clear and concise manner to make it easier for potential financiers to understand your project.
