Intellectual Property M and A opportunities
So we all know that there are a lot of companies or parts of them going for a song at the moment. Some of these will no doubt be a lot more valuable than their price, particularly because of their intellectual property. (Whether it is the IP they own, or simply the approach they take to IP, etc., etc.)
So, what are you thoughts on how to pick the winners? Clearly some searching of patent and trademark databases is going to give you some extra insight – but does that only help you select amongst the ones you’re already aware of? And how will you gain insight into what’s been going on internally? What indicators would you look for to find an ‘IP Bargain’?
