Intangible Asset & Intellectual Property Valuations
Intangible assets, including intellectual property, have become an increasingly important economic resource. Thus, companies need to be better informed as to their value, not only for acquisition accounting purposes, but also for tax planning, pricing, strategy, financing, and tax compliance. The identification, examination, and quantification of an intangible asset’s value are essential to an accurate balance sheet and a key instrument of value determinations for purposes of evaluation and negotiation. Intangible assets can often make up a large part of a company’s balance sheet, and without knowing the value of those intangible assets you cannot accurately identify a company’s worth.
After close consideration of quantitative and qualitative measures, such as book, market, and liquidation value, or cash flow generated by the asset, Marshall & Stevens can provide the valuable objective determination of the worth of intangible assets and intellectual property.
