New BVR study benchmarks remaining useful lives of intangibles in business combinations and provides valuable tool in non-compete valuations

In order to fill a gap in benchmarked data relating to assigning remaining useful lives of intangibles in purchase price allocations, Business Valuation Resources, LLC has produced a study of 360 distinct business combinations that compiles and organizes “living” data by intangible and by industry.

Valuation analysts who advise on purchase price allocations will gain peace-of-mind from the one-of-a-kind resource, not only as it relates to how others are assigning intangibles’ remaining useful lives, but also as it specifically benchmarks the valuation of non-compete agreements by industry and by deal size. Analysts many times feel as if they have to work in a vacuum when allocating value to such non-competes.
