The M&A Playbook provides step-by-step business oriented processes which focuses on quickly identifying critical IP issues that could affect the decision to acquire as well as the valuation of the target company.
Intellectual property can be a company's most valuable asset and as such is of high importance in technology-driven mergers, acquisitions and takeovers. Often the time critical nature of acquisitions leads to rushed and cursory reviews of IP opportunities and threats relating to the transaction. These constraints make IP valuation and risk assessment difficult for the acquiring company.
The M&A Playbook user is guided through a wizard-like interface and is provided best practices and explanations at each step in the process. The output include multiple reports that highlight the results, what it means to the organization, and what actions they can take. The M&A Playbook reports enable organizations to quickly identify critical or underlying IP issues that could affect the decision to acquire and the potential risk relating to merging with or acquiring a target company.
With the cost of IP due diligence averaging 1% of total deal size, the M&A Playbook can often pay for itself in savings realized from a single deal.
