The contribution of patents to enterprise value

A valuation methodology for calculating the contribution that an entire portfolio makes to the overall value of the company

Share this page:

This article describes a valuation methodology for calculating the contribution that an entire portfolio makes to the overall value of the company.

The authors – Nigel Swycher, Cipher CEO and Steve Harris, Cipher CTO – have coined the description in situ valuation for this approach to emphasise that the valuation is only relevant to the current owner and that it is not dependent on a specific licensing, litigation or other corporate event.

The Cipher CEO explains the thinking behind ‘In situ’ valuation.
