Chicago, IL November 3, 2014 – Ocean Tomo, LLC, the intellectual capital merchant banc™ firm, announced the reconstitution of the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index (OTPAT), the only index based on the value of corporate intellectual property. 

The Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index is a diversified listing of the 300 companies that own the most valuable patent portfolios relative to the book value of the company. The Index provides a meaningful benchmark for the performance of companies in today’s intangible asset-driven economy.

“Corporate patent portfolios are now the focus of both Wall Street and main street media.  Inclusion in the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index publicly predicts strategic management by corporate officers and Boards of Directors to manage the firm’s patent portfolio to build shareholder value,” explained James E. Malackowski, Ocean Tomo Chairman and CEO.

Entering its ninth year of publishing the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index, Ocean Tomo acknowledges those companies who have contributed to the performance of the index in all nine years including:  Alcoa, General Electric, HP, Qualcomm, Stryker and Xerox.
