Could the SEC Require Companies to Value their Patent Portfolios?
- Oct 01, 2014
The need to value patent portfolios may be even greater after the Supreme Court’s decision in the Alice case.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) may require more transparency among public companies when it comes to valuing their patent portfolios.
Now, such portfolios generally do not have to be formally valued and reported to interested parties. But given the push for increased transparency, such as at the SEC, and the desire by investors to know more about the companies in which they invest there could be more guidelines or formal requirements forthcoming.
