IP Audits & Diligence

Reviewing the breadth of IP assets – and their strengths and weaknesses

Do you know what intellectual assets within your organisation are most valuable and which help you maintain a competitive advantage? Beyond patents and trademarks, is there any underlying know-how? Understanding what IP assets exist within an organisation is not always the easiest question to answer, yet having this overview can be useful for both your organisation as well as prospective investors and lenders who want to know the breadth of your IP portfolio, its potential value and any associated risks.

Identifying IP strengths and weaknesses

Our IP audits and diligence provide a thorough review of the IP owned or controlled in an organisation and provide an overview of strengths and weaknesses associated to the same which may result from gaps in the organisation’s IP strategy, policies, management processes or compliance procedures.

Our audit and diligence reviews help organisations:

  • Understand the breadth of IP owned and controlled by the organisation
  • Identify the key assets that drive value in the organisation and are hence most valuable
  • Help identify new revenue streams, threats, as well as create a clear plan for improving return on investment and financial returns
  • Identify risks that could affect an organisations ability to maintain or gain competitive advantage (for example – IP leaks)

Key advantages for you and your organisation

In contrast to the past, 80% of the value in a business is generally cached in intangible assets. So it’s paramount for organisations, as well as investors, to have an understanding of all the IP (including IP not normally registered) vesting in such business, its breadth in terms of competitive advantage and utility, as well as any associated risks that could affect downstream value. As informed third party advisors with experience and understanding of all the various forms of intellectual assets, Ingentium can quickly and reliably create a snapshot of an organisation’s IP profile – and provide insight on how to really maximise your IP potential.

“Modern businesses are less dependent on fixed assets, and cache value in a mix of tangible assets they develop or acquire. In fact, about 80% of a business’s value is in it’s intangibles! Therefore, proactively managing these and building a strategy around them is of paramount importance.”
