(PRWEB) March 5, 2008 –-
CONSOR, a leading intellectual property consulting firm, recently announced the expansion of its software analysis and valuation group.
“CONSOR expanded its software valuation service to assist companies that acquire software adhere to new compliance regulations” says Dwight Olson, CONSOR’s director of IP Strategy. He also said “Whether a bankruptcy, re-organization, merger and/or acquisition, CONSOR evaluates a broad range of intellectual property and intangible assets in the form of software by addressing three critical questions: which of these software assets have value? Which of these software assets could be monetized? And, how much might that value be?
Considering the most recent government and Federal Accounting Standards Board (FASB) regulations, CONSOR’s newest service helps clients accurately identify, analyze, document, and value software within an enterprise. With both the government and financial world pushing for more transparency into corporations’ intellectual property assets, CONSOR’s expanded expert service keeps clients up-to-date with the latest purchase price allocation requirements by providing accurate software analysis and valuation.
Properly managing software has never been more important to corporate well-being. Besides constant threats of patent infringement, license violations and counterfeiting, software owners must also contend with regulators' increased emphasis on software asset governance. The accurate reporting of all material risks to shareholders, along with the ability to appraise and keep track of acquired software assets can mean the difference between weathering a conflict with regulators and having regulatory investigations leading to potential shareholder litigation.
CONSOR is a market-based consulting firm specializing in intellectual property and intangible asset valuation, /licensing, royalty rate determination and litigation support services. CONSOR has built a solid foundation of clients and gained invaluable work experience over the past two decades.
