Benchmarking identifiable intangibles and their useful lives in business combinations

There haven't been many "Level 1" inputs for analysts estimating remaining useful lives of intangible assets.  Benchmarking Identifiable Intangibles and Their Useful Lives in Business Combinations solves that problem.  It delivers reported data on useful lives of intangible assets, reflected in 360+ purchase price allocations (PPAs).

Analysts can use this data to benchmark what intangibles are being discovered, categorized, and valued in industries and  the ratios of individual intangible asset categories to total assets. Plus, with the inclusion of key statistical data, this Study can be used to benchmark noncompete agreements, support statistical claims of dominance of intangible assets, and assist in identifying amortization tendencies.
