New technologies, and software in particular, are currently very attractive for investors. However, unlike in most industries, the value of software development companies consists mostly of their intellectual property and the potential of their employees. But how to assess the value of such intangible assets and set the purchase price? And how to decrease the risk that such assets will be suddenly lost? Banks, lawyers and financial experts must respond to the investors’ needs with constructive solutions that will facilitate acquisition of such commodity. The aim of this event is to share the best practices in response to these questions commonly asked by both the investors and the financing banks. In particular, the panelists will discuss: - Surprising (but not uncommon) problems with ownership that are specific to the intellectual property rights of software developments companies, their prevention, detection and solving - Value analysis - are the standard procedures applicable at all? What are the alternative solutions in cases where the standard analysis does not work? - How to secure the future cash-flow to the satisfaction of your financing bank? - Are the interests of the investor and its financing bank always identical? Who is more strict in particular areas? Can the investors rely solely on the bank’s green light? Drivers of the Roundtable: Viktor Fiala of Y Soft Ventures, Ivan Karpjak of Squire Patton Boggs, Matej Kosturak of Raiffeisenbank, -------------------- Target group: IT companies interested in acquisitions of software development companies, banks providing financing in connection with such acquisitions, entrepreneurs considering offering their software developments companies for sale. Registration: online under your company login (if you don´tknow your login, please, contact us by email) or at FREE of charge for AmCham members and invited guests.
