Why You Should Attend:

By rejecting the previously accepted 25% "rule of thumb," Uniloc v. Microsoft has established a future where more stringent analysis and documentation will be paramount to creating a compelling argument in the calculation of patent infringement damages. With a new onus on appraisers to perform thorough and exhaustive due diligence in royalty rate calculations, third-party licensing agreements have become and even more important part of any damages analysis. For many practitioners, knowing where to find relevant (and un-redacted) market comparables, determining which royalty rate benchmarks are appropriate to use, and understanding what additional licensing terms might affect asset values can be an arduous process.

In "Finding & Analyzing Royalty Rates" expert David Jarczyk joins BVR for an in-depth examination of key strategies for locating and breaking down intangibles licensing information for use in business valuation studies, such as purchase price allocations, capitalized value determinations for after-tax royalties using the relief from royalty method, and goodwill impairment analyses under SFAS 141r/SFAS 142. Jarczyk will also turn the spotlight on the intricacies of license agreement construction, with a special emphasis on identifying terms that impact valuation such as upfront payments, milestone payments or mandatory payments.
