Valuation

European lenders, companies and professional advisors rely on our valuations in a range of corporate circumstances because our methodology is robust, defensible and practical, and our experience and expertise allow us to value a broad range of intangible assets in a variety of scenarios. Our intangible asset valuations are frequently used to assist corporate recovery and turnaround professionals to comply with their regulatory duties such as Statement of Insolvency Practice (SIP) 16.

Our reality-based appraisals in Europe, which utilise specialist real market data, are why lenders, recovery professionals and advisors rely on Hilco Streambank as their principal source of intangible asset value opinions. We firmly believe that the ability to reliably value assets requires having an active participation in their sale. In conjunction with this real world data, we utilize the relief from royalty valuation method as the most commonly deployed income approach. We build our valuation models using reliable Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) inputs from premium sources to calculate our discount rates and apply appropriate royalty rates by analysing industry data of more than ten thousand intangible asset transactions and licence agreements.
