Event description
Do you know the true value of the intangible assets you are investing in?

About this Event

Today, more than 87% of company value is driven by intangible assets. However, these assets are often off balance sheet, under-utilised and under-valued.

Join the Plus Eight and Perth Angels network on December 2 as Michael Masterson, Managing Manager at investment firm EverEdge, discusses the potential for savvy investors to achieve a huge upside post investment if their assets can be identified and the value unlocked.

Take for example, Instagram.

At the time of Instagram’s sale to Facebook, the company was 20 months old, had no revenue, effectively no assets and 12-employees. A traditional cost or cash flow basis method would have said this company was worth $0, yet it was sold to Facebook for $1 billion.

Fast forward to today, and Bloomberg Intelligence estimates that Instagram would be worth more than $100 billion if it were its own company and not a Facebook division. If true, Instagram’s valuation would be 100 times greater than the $1 billion Facebook paid for the photo-sharing service in 2012.

Which is why Michael Masterson is joining us for this Boosted Series.

Working for EverEdge, a global intangible asset advisory, valuation and transaction specialist, Michael is able to help investors improve investment returns by assessing intangible asset impact and reducing intangible asset risk.

During this session, we'll hear from Michael on the investment lessons he has learnt through more than 750 client engagements, as well as:

  • What are intangible assets and why are they so valuable?
  • How can investors identify underperforming intangible assets?
  • How can investors unlock value and drive increased performance from intangible assets?
  • Why do traditional valuation methods not work for intangible assets, and how can investors understand the true value of the intangible assets they are investing in?
  • Sharing examples of investment case studies
