Merged Portfolios’ Patent Velocity

The next question is “what is the development intensity and velocity within the acquired company”.  This question can be answered by graphing the number of patents in the merged company’s portfolio versus either years to expiration or by year, shown in the “Merged Portfolios’ Patent Velocity” figure.  In this particular figure we can see that in recent years there’s been a greatly increasing number of patents that the merger would hold. This speaks well for the development intensity and business probability that the acquisition would provide future value to the Corporation.
