Title

Technology valuation: a review and comparison of methods

Abstract

"Technology is one of the major driving forces of the world's economy, is in need of an ideal valuation tool. In this study, the different and most prominent methods of technology valuation, namely the market approach method, cost approach method, income approach method, and the real options method are examined in detail. The flaws in these methods that tend to either overestimate or underestimate the value are identified...To make the study more dynamic, a hypothetical firm with a newly developed technology that helps people with reading disability is used as a case study"--Abstract, leaf iii.
