This essay presents the most recent results from an ongoing research project that collects and analyzes the market prices of patent portfolio transactions. The project was initially launched in 2012 as part of the efforts to better understand the pricing behavior of the rapidly growing patent market. Several updates have been released since then, includ-ing an article published in les Nouvelles, March 2013, titled, “Decompose And Adjust Patent Sales Prices For Patent Portfolio Valuation” (“the les Nouvelles article”); and a presentation during the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Licensing Executives Society (USA & Canada) in Philadelphia (“the 2013 presentation”).
