M•CAM® has measured the “creditworthiness” of Intellectual Property (IP) and Intangible Assets (IA) for nearly two decades through numerous boom and bust cycles. Simply put, this means that we examine the actual assets – contracts, patents, licenses, copyrights, designs, trademarks, permits, etc. – held by firms; compare them qualitatively to the equivalent rights held by other firms; and, characterize the economic consequence of these assets on the underlying enterprise. To do this, we maintain a proprietary repository of state-granted rights from over 160 countries representing, in some instances, over 200 years of historical data. Using our internationally recognized, unrivaled unstructured text linguistic genomic algorithms, we measure the quality of these rights and associate them with business transactions reported in financial statements, contracts, bid proposals, trade records and other publicly available (but hard to find) data.
