Intellectual property (IP) in the form of brands, patents and know-how is still not sufficiently integrated into the operational management of small and medium-sized enterprises. Yet they make a very significant contribution to the value of a company: often more than 30 percent.
The fact that these intangible assets can be managed as a tradable resource is a high potential that is often being overlooked. Accordingly, they can play a unique role as a financing instrument in various situations (including growth, restructuring or acquisitions), especially in alternative capital procurement – a great added value, especially in the current, tense economic situation, in which financing options are immensely limited.
Also, in alternative approaches to corporate transactions (best owner M&A), especially in distressed cases, the inclusion of IP can be a gamechanger.
WE SHOW YOU HOW TO PROFITABLY USE YOUR PATENTS, TRADEMARKS AND KNOW-HOW AS A FINANCING INSTRUMENT OR IN THE PROCESS OF BEST OWNER M&A.
And this is exactly where the cooperation between PATEV and CRESCAT comes in:
The cooperation combines the expertise and many years of experience of both PATEV as an expert house for patent and trademark valuations and IP strategy and the corporate finance company CRESCAT.
Trademarks, patents, and know-how are valued by PATEV according to national and international standards. CRESCAT incorporates this economic value in the development of individual financing solutions and thus achieves, among other things, higher financing volumes.
When it comes to divestment processes, higher valuation corridors are presented, especially for very technology-driven companies. Potential buyers / partners with a proven interest in the technology (“best owner”) are thus identified more quickly and with greater certainty.
We know from our many years of expert practice for numerous companies, financing partners, auditors and others how valuable intangible assets are. As experts in the fields of brand and technology valuation as well as innovation, we know the ways and means to develop, protect and fully utilize intellectual property.
CRESCAT supports companies in the development of tailor-made financing solutions, in succession planning, in the preparation and implementation of corporate acquisitions and sales. In doing so, the corporate finance consulting firm has an extensive network of entrepreneurial investors who, with selected credit funds, family offices and long-term equity investors, represent an alternative to financing through traditional credit institutions.
