Patent Value Quotient Provides Patent Valuation
Guidance by Computing Average Price Paid per Patent
IPOfferings continues to innovate! Last year, we introduced the Patent Value Quotient™ to the IP community. It is a quarterly report of sales of issued U.S. Patents that provides additional patent valuation data for buyers and sellers of patents and portfolios. The January 2013 Patent Value Quotient covers 35 patent transactions for the 2012 calendar year.
The Patent Value Quotient includes the sellers and buyers of patents (unless they have asked to be anonymous), the technology area of the patents, the total transaction, the number of issued U.S. Patents, and the Quotient: the average price paid per patent. The report also includes the Average and Median sales prices of all transactions for the year along with a bar chart displaying the data by technology.
Each Patent Value Quotient includes a narrative that explains how the data for the report is collected and how complex transactions — such as when a business or business unit is purchased for its IP assets — are computed. The Patent Value Quotient provides an additional tool — in addition to the current methodologies in use — to determine patent valuation based on actual patent sales just as real estate appraisals use comparable property transactions to value land and property.
