In the world of IP analysis and litigation support, Nevium is relatively young. We often work with, or stand against, firms with much longer histories and larger staff. Recently Nevium received recognition from two globally renowned sources: Brand Finance and Forbes. Therefore, we dedicate this edition of our newsletter to spread the word and recognize the recognition we’ve received. Once again, we hope this look inside our practice is informative, and please excuse our moment of hubris. Please click here for our June Newsletter.

Identifying, valuing IP and measuring their contribution to business value is challenging. Intellectual properties or IP can be the most valuable assets owned by a business. The Provisors’ Distributors and Manufacturers Affinity Group of San Diego is hosting a panel discussion featuring Nevium Principal Brian Buss titled “The Value of Intellectual Property in a Business.” The speakers will provide advice for IP buyers and sellers related to the identification of key IP assets, how to construct and explain the IP narrative to prospective buyers and disclose common fallacies about IP value. The panel discussion will also include techniques to improve the value of IP and a discussion on the impact of IP on business value.
The affinity group panel will held at 4pm on March 9, 2017 at Barney & Barney in San Diego. Provisors members can register to attend through the Provisors website: www.provisors.com

Strategic Alternatives Evaluation for RFID Technology
A leading innovator of RFID solutions for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries was approached by its largest distributor with a buy-out offer. Though the distributor accounted for over 50% of revenue at the time, the company was developing new technologies with broader market applications, accumulating proprietary data, and building lasting relationships that could mean substantial revenue and earnings growth in the near future. Nevium was retained to evaluate the company’s strategic options and provide valuation calculations under different scenarios to assist owners and investors in deciding to accept or reject the acquisition offer.
Through market research, business forecasting and use of Nevium’s IP valuation apportionment model, Nevium was able to identify and quantify several opportunities for MEPS to leverage its IP into substantial earnings growth. Based on its analysis, Nevium recommended that the company reject the acquisition offer and continue to develop their technologies, products, brand awareness and customer relationships. Since Nevium’s analysis, the company has been able to exceed its projections, enter new markets and increase its earnings.

The Value Examiner, a professional development journal for the consulting disciplines, published a special issue focused on brand value. Nevium’s Brian Buss authored the chapter “Brand Valuations: Identifying the Opportunity and Challenges”. This “Special Issue” of The Value Examiner focuses on high profile aspects of the valuation world. A comprehensive discussion related to the importance of valuing a brand, and conversely, the devaluation of a brand. Buss’ article explores the concept that brands are widely accepted as valuable assets for businesses large and small. These assets are typically the most significant intangible assets recognized in acquisition accounting and a valuable brand reflects the difference between better-than-average and lower-than-average product prices and profit margins.
