Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Ocean Tomo, LLC, the intellectual capital merchant banc™ firm, announced the reconstitution of the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index (OTPAT), the only index based on the value of corporate intellectual property.
The Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index is a diversified listing of the 300 companies that own the most valuable patent portfolios relative to the book value of the company. The Index provides a meaningful benchmark for the performance of companies in today’s intangible asset-driven economy.
“Corporate patent portfolios are now the focus of both Wall Street and main street media. Inclusion in the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index publicly predicts strategic management by corporate officers and Boards of Directors to manage the firm’s patent portfolio to build shareholder value,” explained James E. Malackowski, Ocean Tomo Chairman and CEO.
Entering its ninth year of publishing the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index, Ocean Tomo acknowledges those companies who have contributed to the performance of the index in all nine years including: Alcoa, General Electric, HP, Qualcomm, Stryker and Xerox.
A complete list of the 46 companies qualified every year of publishing the index can be found on the Ocean Tomo Insights Blog (http://www.OceanTomo.com/blog).
There are 33 companies contributing to the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index for the first time this year. These companies include: Caesars Entertainment; Check Point Software; FireEye; Invensense; Jabil Circuit; Palo Alto Networks; Pandora Media; Post Holdings and Splunk.
The Index is priced and published by the NYSE Euronext (NYSE: OTPAT) and has been recognized by the exchange as the first major broad market index in 35 years.
