GTT Group, Inc. Releases Board And C-Level Fiduciary Obligations White Paper Regarding Patent Value During Acquisition or Initial Public Offering

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory services, announces the availability of a new white paper related to strategic patent portfolio development and best practices within the mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and initial public offerings (IPO) context.

The GTT Group white paper addresses C-level executives and board members, and describes the various key considerations that are required as part of any best business practice. For fiduciary stakeholders that are responsible for maximizing enterprise value or minimizing patent licensing related cash outflows, the white paper is a mandatory read.

“Very few executives would ignore understanding the potential of a key company asset until it was an absolutely necessity,” says Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group. “Proactively managing the enterprise’s patent portfolio to maximize enterprise value and minimize cash payouts is an enterprise and shareholder mandate.”

GTT Group supports the patent community by providing a series of reports, papers, and maintaining patent indices. The quarterly Patent Transaction Market Report is available through complimentary subscription along with other reports and papers available through either complimentary or paid access. The Patent Market Index (PMI®) and Patent License Index (PLI®) are two industry bell weather indices created by GTT Group which provide market insight and understanding and comprise the quarterly Patent Transaction Market Report.
