Topic: Do Intangibles Matter?

Intangible assets account for about half of market value of most companies. Whether its patents, processes, customer services, intellectual property or delivery systems-its ideas and services that are the true coin of the 21st century firm. Intangibles assets in companies such as Microsoft or eBay can be as much as 80 percent of market value. Most high performing companies manage intangibles as rigorously as managing brick and mortar.  This roundtable will explore the degree to which clever CEOs and their senior teams develop and leverage the intangible values that offer the springboard of future value.  Just as important is how intangibles are measured, how they are perceived by shareholders and stakeholders, and what CEOs need to consider in monitoring how intangibles are managed and leveraged in order to have the maximum impact on value creation.
