companies who might wonder
how to value their films or libraries.
Stephen J. Kerr & Sarah Nean Bruce
Stephen Kerr, has been an appraiser of film and television properties for more than 25 years. He recently finished the valuation of three more film libraries for the owners/distributors of those titles. In 2014, he published an article while consulting with a number of film sales agencies and distributors about the challenges they were facing.
In 2017, he updated that piece.
My firm has been valuing book, music, software, film and television (intellectual) properties for more than 25 years and we have also studied the valuation techniques of many other firms as well, and for the most part, it comes down to “apples to apples”.
