Ocean Tomo Study Ranks Top 25 Most Inventive Illinois Companies in 2011 for Crain’s Chicago Business

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 25, 2012

Ocean Tomo, LLC, the Chicago-based Intellectual Capital Merchant Banc™ firm, announced the results of a proprietary study performed for Crain’s Chicago Business. The study, which ranks the 25 Illinois companies with the highest rated patent portfolios issued in 2011, was performed using the Ocean Tomo PatentRatings® system. This proprietary web-based platform (U.S. Patent No. 6,556,992) calculated a statistical measure of the relative quality of patents issued in 2011 to Illinois companies. Ranking companies based on this statistical quality metric is a proven means to identify future industry leaders. “The Ocean Tomo PatentRatings® study conducted for Crain’s Chicago Business suggests that Illinois has a broad diversity of established and emerging technology driven companies” explains James E. Malackowski, President and CEO of Ocean Tomo.

“Patents are one of the most reliable and critical indicators of a company’s strategic intent,” says Malackowski. “Furthermore, companies holding valuable patents in sufficient quantity are likely to shape industry direction and outperform their peers with respect to equity returns.” Malackowski cites the strong performance of the Ocean Tomo 300® Patent Index (NYSE Euronext: OTPAT) as support for the firm’s conclusions. "The ultimate value of a patent portfolio is not the rating or even licensing income; both are indirect effects” notes Malackowski. “The ultimate measure of value is the portfolio's effect on earnings and stock price. Our rating system has proven to be a forward looking indication of stock value with demonstrated out-performance as compared to the S&P 500 over a sustained period of time.”
