From Trash to Gold. IP Valuation wins Company 20 million US Dollars in upfront licensing revenues.
OxFirst’s IP valuation enabled the formulation of an IP strategy for the recycling of electronic waste. With millions of cell phones, tablets and PCs thrown away every year, finding a solution to the recovery of potentially useful resources from such trash is essential. OxFirst helped by assessing the economic value of the patents in this space and assisted in formulating a licensing program. This was undertaken in the spirit of social entrepreneurship. The results of OxFirst’s IP valuation led to an upfront licensing payment of 20 Million Dollars plus an attractive running royalty fee over the useful life of the patents. All of this was achieved within 6 months. The OxFirst IP valuation was a game changer for this firm. It established IP as the core element of the business. IP is now on top of the Agenda of the Board.
