La firma consultora, que cuenta con oficinas en más de 15 países del mundo, consolida así su presencia en el mercado mexicano y en los países de habla hispana de América Latina.

En este sentido, el director general de Brand Finance en Londres, David Haigh, dijo: “a nuestra firma se le conoce por el seguimiento que le ha dado al valor de miles de las marcas más importantes del mundo por cerca de 20 años. Nos sentimos muy entusiasmados de aportar ahora nuestra experiencia al mercado mexicano y de todo Latino América”.

Brand Finance fue fundada en 1996 con el objeto de cerrar la brecha entre las disciplinas del marketing y las finanzas. Durante casi 20 años, la firma a ayudado a compañías a conectar sus marcas directamente a su balance final, y de esta forma ha sido un apoyo para robustecer los decisiones, estrategias e inversiones en torno a marcas.

El trabajo de valuación de marca ayuda al experto financiero a entender el valor de los programas de marketing, a la vez que apoya al experto en marketing a exponer su caso ante la junta directiva. Como parte fundamental de la planeación estratégica y la gestión de una marca, entender el valor que ésta tiene sirve para dimensionar presupuestos de marca y marketing, así como también para entender mejor una cartera de marcas, realizar análisis de arquitectura de marcas y en general, a estar mejor preparados para planear actividades como extensiones de marca.

Laurence Newell, director de la oficina de Brand Finance México explicó, “las empresas mexicanas entienden bien la importancia de desarrollar sus marcas con el fin de impulsar las preferencia de los distintos stakeholders de la organización, y en general para mejorar el desempeño de la empresa. En México estamos ante una gran coyuntura para introducir los servicios de expertos independientes e imparciales en materia de valuación de marcas”.

Methodology

Definition of Brand

Brand is defined as a marketing-related intangible asset including, but not limited to, names, terms, signs, symbols, logos, and designs, intended to identify goods, services, or entities, creating distinctive images and associations in the minds of stakeholders, thereby generating economic benefits.

Brand Strength

Brand strength is the efficacy of a brand’s performance on intangible measures relative to its competitors. Brand Finance evaluates brand strength in a process compliant with ISO 20671, looking at Marketing Investment, Stakeholder Equity, and the impact of those on Business Performance. The data used is derived from Brand Finance’s proprietary market research programme and from publicly available sources.

Each brand is assigned a Brand Strength Index (BSI) score out of 100, which feeds into the brand value calculation. Based on the score, each brand is assigned a corresponding Brand Rating up to AAA+ in a format similar to a credit rating.

Brand Valuation Approach

Brand Finance calculates the values of brands in its rankings using the Royalty Relief approach – a brand valuation method compliant with the industry standards set in ISO 10668. It involves estimating the likely future revenues that are attributable to a brand by calculating a royalty rate that would be charged for its use, to arrive at a ‘brand value’ understood as a net economic benefit that a brand owner would achieve by licensing the brand in the open market.

The steps in this process are as follows:

1 Calculate brand strength using a balanced scorecard of metrics assessing Marketing Investment, Stakeholder Equity, and Business Performance. Brand strength is expressed as a Brand Strength Index (BSI) score on a scale of 0 to 100.

2 Determine royalty range for each industry, reflecting the importance of brand to purchasing decisions. In luxury, the maximum percentage is high, while in extractive industry, where goods are often commoditised, it is lower. This is done by reviewing comparable licensing agreements sourced from Brand Finance’s extensive database.

3 Calculate royalty rate. The BSI score is applied to the royalty range to arrive at a royalty rate. For example, if the royalty range in a sector is 0-5% and a brand has a BSI score of 80 out of 100, then an appropriate royalty rate for the use of this brand in the given sector will be 4%.

4 Determine brand-specific revenues by estimating a proportion of parent company revenues attributable to a brand.

5 Determine forecast revenues using a function of historic revenues, equity analyst forecasts, and economic growth rates.

6 Apply the royalty rate to the forecast revenues to derive brand revenues.

7 Discount post-tax brand revenues to a net present value which equals the brand value.
