Sample Reports | Company Portfolios Revealed





Easily accessible and thoroughly insightful, Company Portfolios Revealed puts your entire patent portfolio at your fingertips. But what makes Quantify IP's newest program truly revolutionary is that now you can directly view virtually ANY company's patent portfolio, accessing information such as the status of their patent applications, which of their granted patents are expiring, and what future patent costs are implied by the portfolio. It is competitive intelligence on a whole new level.

Expertly formulated data structures make CPR patent portfolio analysis simple and straightforward. We take application data licensed from the European Patent Office (EPO), and combine that with our own research data about official fees, associate charges, patent timeline rules, and current exchange rates. We then use actual dates, as well as projected dates and costs in each country for each patent family to calculate and report information on the entire portfolio of ANY company you want to do research on. Simply put, we've done the work for you, so you can focus on the results.

Executive Summary Report
The Executive Summary Report has 7 tabs:

The Filing Patterns sheet shows the total number of filings to each country from 1990 to the present. The count is shown in order of highest to lowest number of filings. This report quickly tells you where the Company has determined it is important to obtain protection.

The Future Costs sheet shows future portfolio cost totals for each country. The amounts are shown by year for the next 20 years. The costs include official and associate fees for prosecution, granting and maintenance. This report summarizes total future cost implications of a Company's portfolio, on a country by country basis.

The Future Costs Chart sheet uses the impact of a bar chart to display the overall future portfolio country cost totals from the Future Costs sheet organized from highest to lowest cost. .

The Ungranted Aging Summary sheet is based on patent applications that are still pending, and have not granted within the typical time to grant for the country plus three years. The maintenance costs currently being paid for such applications are accumulated for each of the next five years. The Ungranted Aging Summary sheet displays the total maintenance costs for each country for these applications, in decreasing order of total country costs. The total number of such patent applications in each country is also shown. These are applications which may have been 'forgotten', and maintenance costs are being paid for applications that are no longer of interest.

The Ungranted Aging Detail sheet shows the first ten rows from the complete Ungranted Aging Detail Report, in order to provide the user with a sample of the kind of information available in the complete report. This report shows details of the long pending applications discussed in the Ungranted Aging Summary report description in the previous paragraph. The report provides detail for each such application, including the patent country, title, earliest filing date, publication number and application number. This makes it easy to research the application further, using public sources to make sure it is desirable to keep it active.

The Expiring Patents Summary sheet shows the totals per country of maintenance costs for granted patents that are near the end of their term, and will expire within the next five years. This report summarizes costs that may be saved by abandoning patents, or licensing them out.

The Expiring Patents Detail sheet shows the first ten rows from the complete Expiring Patents Detail Report, in order to provide the user with a sample of the kind of information available in the complete report. This report shows details of the soon to expire granted patents summarized in the Expiring Patents Summary tab. The report provides detail for each such patent, including the patent country, title, earliest filing date, publication number and application number. This makes it easy to research the patent further, using public sources to make sure it is desirable to keep it active.

Filing Pattern Analysis Report
The Filing Pattern Analysis Report provides an analysis of where patent applications have been filed, and how the choice of countries changed over time.

The report is provided as a spreadsheet with two sections, one listing the countries in alphabetical order, and the other in order of filing frequency.

For each country the number of filings, the number of filings per year, and the 'relative percentage' (relative to the most filed-to country) are displayed for each of six time periods: 1990-the present; four periods of 5 years each (1990-1994; 1995-1999, etc); and a sixth period of 2010-the present. The 'filing date' used for any country's application is the filing date of the original application in the patent family.

The analyst can see at a glance where the company requires patent protection, and how the need for protection in various countries has changed over time.

Detail Cost Analysis Report
The Detail Cost Analysis Report is presented as a spreadsheet with seven tabs. The report provides portfolio cost expectations for the next 20 years. These costs are summarized by country, and also detailed by patent for the entire company portfolio.

The Detail Cost Analysis Report may answer many broad questions such as which countries are most utilized, or what costs per stage or per category for a country are expected within which years. The report may also answer many detailed questions about individual patent families.

The Patent Totals sheet is the most detailed, with reports down to the level of the patent sub-family, for which it totals costs by country for each year. Title, publication number and application number are provided as a handy tool.

The Country Totals sheet represents all patent family costs summarized together into country totals for each of the 20 years.

The Country Bar Chart sheet uses the emphasis of a bar chart to show the country totals for the overall portfolio. The countries are sorted by totals, from highest to lowest.

The Family Totals sheet displays one line per patent family (including all subfamilies) with costs per year.

The Stage Totals sheet is arranged by country in alphabetic order. Within each country are total costs by stage (filing, examination, prosecution, granting, and maintenance) across all patents, totaled across the sheet by year. Totals per stage are also provided at the portfolio level.

The Stage Counts sheet is arranged by country in alphabetic order. Within each country are total counts by stage (filing, examination, prosecution, granting, and maintenance) across all patents, totaled across the sheet by year. In addition, totals per stage are provided at the portfolio level.

The Category Totals sheet is arranged by country in alphabetic order. Within each country are total costs by category (official, associate, and translation) across all patents, broken across the sheet by year. Totals per category are provided at the portfolio level.

Ungranted Aging Report
The Ungranted Aging Report provides a summary and detail of maintenance payments that are being paid for ungranted patent applications which have remained ungranted significantly longer than expected. These are applications that may have been 'forgotten' and maintenance costs are being paid for applications that are perhaps no longer of interest. These patents could be abandoned if they are no longer useful and thereby decrease costs, sometimes significantly.

The Ungranted Aging Reports identify the patent applications that are still ungranted 3 years after the typical time-to-grant for a particular country and accumulates the yearly maintenance payments being made for these applications.

The Ungranted Aging Reports are delivered as a Summary Report (included, free of charge, with purchase of the Ungranted Aging Detail Report or the Executive Summary Report) and a Detail Report.

The Summary Report has two tabs: Summary and Category Summary.

The Summary sheet shows the total maintenance payments for each country, with the totals being shown for the next five years, sorted in decreasing order of the total for each country. The number of patents is also displayed for each country.

The Category Summary sheet breaks down the amounts for each country into official and associate charges.

The Detail Report has two tabs: Detail by Family and Category Detail by Family.

The Detail by Family sheet is sorted by Patent Family, and patent family parent filing date. It shows the amounts by year for each patent in each country. The title, IPC Class section, publication number and application number are shown. This sheet enables a patent by patent review in each relevant country.

The Category Detail by Family sheet shows the Detail sheet amounts further broken down into official and associate charges.

Expiring Patents Report
The Expiring Patents Report provides a summary and detail of maintenance payments that are being paid for granted patents which will expire within the next five years. They are invaluable in determining whether a company should continue to pay maintenance fees on a patent, or whether or not to license a patent out if it is no longer useful.

The Expiring Patents Report is delivered as a Summary Report (included, free of charge, with purchase of the Expiring Patents Detail Report or the Executive Summary Report) and a Detail Report.

The Summary Report has two tabs: Summary and Category Summary.

The Summary sheet shows the total maintenance payments for each country, with the totals being shown for the next five years, sorted in decreasing order of the total for each country. The number of patents is also displayed for each country.

The Category Summary sheet breaks down the amounts for each country into official and associate charges.

The Detail Report has two tabs: Detail by Family and Category Detail by Family.

The Detail by Family sheet is sorted by patent family, and patent family parent filing date. It shows the amounts by year for each patent in each country. The title, IPC Class section, publication number and application number are shown. This sheet enables a patent by patent review in each relevant country.

The Category Detail by Family sheet shows the Detail sheet amounts further broken down into official and associate charges.

Time-to-Grant Report
The Time-to-Grant Report calculates the actual average time-to-grant for each application country. These are then used to project future grant dates for as yet ungranted applications. Usually the actual historic time-to-grant for granted patent applications is not readily available for analysis. However, with CPR they are available and can help to predict future time-to-grants for a given company.

The times-to-grant for each country are also reported by the International Patent Classification (IPC system) main sections.

IPC Classification Report
This report uses the International Patent Classification system, or IPC, to summarize patent portfolio activity for the selected company. The IPC categorizes the contents of patents using a system of language-independent symbols grouped by areas of technology.

The IPC Classification Report analyzes the number of patent applications by each International Class and Sub-Class.

The report is presented as a spreadsheet with six tabs. The tabs display total counts for each IPC Class/Sub-Class by country; then these totals are sorted by country count; then totals by Class, sorted by Class and by Class counts; then totals by Sub-Class, sorted by Sub-Class and sorted by Sub-Class counts.
