Market Validation

Double Blind Study

One of the first tests of the system was a double blind study with a Fortune® 100 firm. As predicted (See OTR™ Score vs. Patent Licensing/Commercialization Chart), patent OTR™ scores are strong predictors of commercialization rates. The OTR™ scores predicted both patents with license revenues, as well as those used in commercial products.

IPQ Score vs. Patent Licensing/Commercialization

Market Tested

The Ocean Tomo Ratings™ system is the sole source of patent related data used to identify the constituent companies to the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index. The Ocean Tomo 300 Patent Index is comprised of 300 equity securities of companies with the highest innovation ratio (maintenance value of the company patent portfolio relative to the book value of the company) within their investment style and size.

Performance

From its inception in January 2007, through July 2010, the OT300 outperformed the S&P® 500 by 877 basis points. This performance record is auspicious and confirms the relevance of the OT300 as the natural benchmark for the U.S. economy. The OT300's performance in its first two years also speaks to the importance of objectively valuing patents owned by publicly traded companies to provide a fuller, more accurate picture of corporate health.
