How to make smarter investment decisions
with insights from patent analytics?


Unique insights from patent data

In a technology-driven global economy, patent protection has become crucial for companies to stay relevant and profitable. Investors can benefit from this vast amount of codified knowledge by gaining unique insights from patent data.

As patent data is publicly available, it sheds light on the R&D strategies of companies, irrespective of their secretiveness, sizes or publication requirements. Investors can identify the technologies and market segments companies are focusing on. This allows you to gain a better understanding of competitive environments from an innovation or technology perspective

Patents are future-oriented and possess high predictive power. Since the average time from patent to product is 2-5 years, patent data is frequently being used to identify technology trends and disruptive innovations early on. It can also be applied to identify potentially impactful start-ups or to assess the risks and opportunities that technology-driven companies are likely to face.

The importance of IP due diligence

In a technology-oriented economy, IP assets have become a significant driver for business growth. It is therefore crucial for investors to fully understand the intellectual property of their target companies.

While the number of company transactions with substantial IP portfolios is steadily growing, investors are still underestimating the importance of a structured screening of companies’ IP assets.

Insufficient IP due diligence can lead to overvaluation of target companies, exposure to unknown risks associated with these IP portfolios or integration issues that might diminish synergy effects.


Get answers on the most common IP due diligence questions

  • Does the target company own all relevant patents?
  • Does the target company have a competitive advantage due to its patents?
  • Are there any potential IP risks such as patent cliffs involved?
  • Can the patents of the target company be potentially infringed?
  • Have the patent maintenance fees been paid?
  • What is the remaining lifetime of the patents?

Benefit from expert advisory by our in-house analyst team
