Patent Value Quotient Reports on Ten Transactions in First Four Months of
2015, and Shows a Rebound in Patent Prices!

patent valuation

The Patent Value Quotient™ for the Second Quarter of 2015 shows an increase in both the Average Price Paid per Patent and the Median Prices Paid per Patent over both of these metrics from the Full Year 2014 Patent Value Quotient. While the ten transactions included in the 2Q 2015 PVQ are heavily weighted toward the first three months, they could well indicate a trend. When the 3Q 2015 PVQ is released in the fall, it will very likely include additional second quarter transactions.

The Patent Value Quotient is the only report of its kind. IPOfferings – as the leading patent brokerage firm – provides this valuable service at no charge to the IP, innovation and business communities. Using public documents, USPTO assignments, SEC filings and other sources, we report on patent transactions, dividing the total transaction by the number of issued U.S. Patent to compute the “Quotient:” The Average Price Paid per Patent. These quotients for each transaction are a vital tool in pricing patents for sale or acquisition.
