Intangible Matters Series: Valuing your secret sauce
The insider’s guide to maximising yield and higher valuations. Join Ernesto Fernandez, General Manager and Chief Intangible Asset Officer at Rhino-Rack and Tyler Capson, Managing Director at EverEdge to find out how to value your 'secret sauce'.
A pitfall many companies fall into when establishing a valuation is coming up with an arbitrary number (“we are raising $10M and I don’t want to give away more than 33% so we are worth $30M”) or based on the hope that an investor will accept the company’s financial projections (which tend to be highly speculative in early-stage companies). Both these approaches ignore the critical impact intangible assets (such as data, brand, confidential information, systems and processes, customer and supplier relationships, software, code, patents, and trademarks) have on a company’s value that can be orders of magnitude greater than factors such as historical cost of development or forecast cashflows.
So how do you ensure that your valuation captures the true value of your company and that you aren’t leaving money on the table or giving away too much equity?
