Maximize Exit Value
Access a variety of solutions to help you optimize and articulate your IP value, maximize your enterprise value, and protect your market positions.
The M&A and capital markets have historically treated intellectual property as a due diligence line item – a source of risk rather than a strategic asset. Now, with QoIP, companies and deal teams can position an IP portfolio as a core part of the business and a source of enterprise value.
Realizing full value for an IP-intensive company in a sale or material financing transaction requires IP-intensive positioning. Let Aon help your deal team catalogue your IP with precision, articulate its value with impact, and maximize the return on your IP investment.
With your answers to the questions below, we can assess whether QoIP has potential to enhance the positioning of your IP in a transaction setting.
