5 steps to brand value

Discover your brand's monetary value online in just five simple steps with DANISTER

Step 1 ▸ Set up revenue planning

Enter the latest revenue generated by the brand. Based on this, you can now specify the planned annual revenue growth in percentage for the detailed planning phase. Typically, a detailed planning phase of 3-5 years is set. Key question: How much will brand revenues grow in the coming years (planning)?

Step 2 ▸ Determine the tax rate

Calculating brand value using capital value-oriented methods must be done on an after-tax basis according to IDW and DIN ISO 10668. The relevant tax system is the one in which these financial surpluses are taxed. You can either rely on databases (e.g., OECD) to obtain the tax rate or use your company's "own" corporate tax rate as an indication.

Step 3 ▸ Approximate the hypothetical royalty rate

The purpose of the relief-from-royalty method is to isolate the brand.

Central question: How much would a company have to spend for a brand if it were not already in possession of it? Consequently, what would be an appropriate or fictitious royalty rate for the brand that one would be willing to pay? Simplified, it can be compared to a notional brand rent. Comparable and real license agreements can be sourced from databases, or a suitable royalty rate can be determined based on brand strength (Our experts are happy to assist you with this). At this point, the company can consider what percentage-based royalty it would be willing to pay for the right to use the brand if it were not already in possession of it. Typical royalty rates range from 1-5%, depending on the industry.

Step 4 ▸ Determine the brand-specific capitalization rate

In the income-based approach, future cash flows are discounted using a risk-adjusted interest rate. In practice, the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of the company is commonly used as a starting point. As an approximation, the company's WACC can be applied for brand valuation. Typically, a risk premium of 1-3% is added to the WACC for brand valuation. If this information is not readily available, there are various databases that can be used to derive an indicative WACC.

Step 5 ▸ Determine the brand's useful life

Key question: How long will the brand generate these hypothetical license revenues (brand cash flows)? 5 years, 15 years, 25 years, or is this period indefinite, respectively the brand is so strong that an end is not foreseeable (=Terminal Value; TV)? In practice, a factor analysis is conducted to determine the duration of use.

With the first digital tool, DANISTERSPEED you will be guided through the brand valuation process in 5 steps. Gradually, the relevant parameters of the relief-from-royalty method will be queried and input into the model.

Austria can certainly be called a stronghold of family businesses. This form of business is based on intangible values, laws and histories. Mostly lived implicitly, there is a true treasure of added value that actually only needs to be lifted. Exactly this circumstance the Danister Group takes care of and transfers immaterial into valuable and visible ideas. Especially in these fast-moving times, such parameters as the brand contains are all the more important. I will recommend this company to my students as well as to my network partners.
