2 The Brandstock Group is one of the world s leading and fastestgrowing providers of Intellectual Property services that harnesses innovative IT and professional specialist expertise. As a startup company in 2000, it now numbers over 100 employees in four countries, with a particularly strong standing in Europe and an increasing presence in the US and Asia. Brandstock has revolutionized pricing, cost transparency and large-scale IP projects, such as global searches, applications, renewals and assignments.

Further background on Brandstock, the organization, the services and client endorsements, can be found in the Appendix. Brandstock works with a network of 250 preferred associates in over 200 jurisdictions. This network has been established and honed over a 10-year period, with firms chosen on the basis of professional excellence and value for money. Where clients have preferred agents that are not part of Brandstock s network, we are happy to work with these providers and obtain the best price for their services. Custom-made IT, particularly web-based interactive IT, is the basis of and the differentiator for Brandstock s services. Already developed to a high standard, these web platforms can be customized to client requirements. All IT developed and maintained by Brandstock is completely secure and complies with BSI IT-Protection, a catalogue issued by the German Federal Office for Information Security, based on ISO I strongly believe that Brandstock s services can enhance any company s IP portfolio and lead to considerable cost savings. Our clients endorse this and Brandstock is proud that they refer to us as their trusted partner in IP matters. I hope that Brandstock will have an opportunity to work with you. If you would like more information, there are detailed brochures available on each of the services discussed below. Should you have any further questions, I would be happy to answer them.

3 SEARCHES FILINGS In 2005, Brandstock was the first IP service provider to set up an interactive online search platform for the delivery of trademark search results. Brandstock both simplifies the administration and reduces the cost of large scale trademark and design filing programs by taking full responsibility for all actions up to the point where the official report is received from trademarks registries, though we can retain responsibility until the end of the registration process if needed. The platform delivers improved search coordination and allows clients to understand at a glance total global risk in connection with all trademarks searched, and to drill down into candidate trademark, conflicting trademark and/or country specific detail where desired. Since 2005, Brandstock attends to the following tasks so that the client in-house team can remain focused on the high-value creative aspects of trademark management: the platform has been continuously refined and domain names have been added to the search capability. Brandstock delivers results according to four objectives: Searches can be carried out in batches of countries, in Advising on registrability of candidate trademarks, taking into account local laws and providing an overview Consistently high-quality search results Efficiently presented business-oriented results Realizing cost efficiencies Promoting transparency and consistency in search project results and associated costs accordance with business priority, in order to save costs by not searching in all countries when a trademark is unavailable in a major market.

4 RENEWALS IP ASSIGNMENT SOLUTIONS Brandstock has developed an integrated secure trademark and design renewals process that allows clients to save between 30% and 40% on their annual renewal bill and to reduce administrative burden at the same time. Brandstock has developed a custom-made web-based Businesses of all sizes are subject to changes in corporate structure and brand ownership through acquisition, merger, demerger, reorganization and licensing. In the wake of these changes, IP functions face huge logistical and budgetary challenges to record these changes at registries around the world. All client data is transferred to Brandstock s custommade web-based platform that is visible to Brandstock and the client. All quotes are uploaded to the platform to ensure complete cost transparency. The client may choose to issue a general power of attorney (PoA) to Brandstock so that the client has platform for renewals to provide comprehensive data on minimal document preparation during the course of pricing and renewals status that both Brandstock and Brandstock understood the scale of the challenge for the project.

5 IP COST CALCULATOR AGENT BENCHMARKING The IP CostCalculator (IPCC) is an online web-based tool that gives instant access to information about IP law firms agents professional fees and official registry charges in more than 180 countries around the world. Brandstock s Agent Benchmarking was a ground-breaking service developed after Brandstock responded to feedback from many clients that their legal departments were under increasing pressure to work with smaller budgets while maintaining service levels. This fee information is constantly updated and, in the case of official fees, verified by Brandstock. The professional fees are binding quotes, not estimates, and brand owners can confidently rely on them for budgeting and scoping fixed-fee IP projects. The IPCC is unique in terms of the scope of information offered and the reliability of the data. Before Brandstock developed and launched the IPCC in 2002, there was no easy way to compare the professional fees of IP agents. Furthermore, Brandstock found that the official registry fees quoted by some IP agents were not accurate and that simply by being charged the correct fee as displayed by the IPCC, clients could save between 10% and 20% of such costs. The IPCC now covers fees for all trademark-related service professional and official fees. General Counsels, procurement departments and finance departments were taking a greater interest in the finances of Intellectual Property departments and required proof that external lawyers and IP agents were providing good value for money. They were also taking a greater interest in outsourcing and offshoring as a means of saving costs, and in replacing the fixed costs of in-house employed staff with the more flexible costs of staff employed by a service provider. The Agent Benchmarking service reviews costs charged to clients for trademark and/or patent services and compares them with what others pay in the marketplace. It typically reduces external IP agent and official fee spend by between 25% and 45%. From our experience of carrying out more than 100 Agent Benchmarking projects for clients, the cost of the service is more than offset by savings in external spend in just one year alone. THERE ARE THREE VERSIONS AVAILABLE: 01 Standard version: this gives access to information on the standard professional fees that Brandstock s network of 250 partner agents and IP registries worldwide charge. 02 Customized Version: this is fully customized for each client. Additional to the Standard Version, it includes the fees of the customers agents IN A FOUR STEP PROCESS, BRANDSTOCK: Identifies correct official registry fees and ensures that the client s agents correctly charge these, leading to savings of up to 45% Compares a client s agents fees with fees charged to other IP owners thereby highlighting countries in which savings can be made Compares a client s agents fees to the lowest available fees (usually only available to service providers placing a high volume of work) to establish a benchmark for negotiation and then negotiates to reduce agents fees by between 25% and 60% Supports clients in consolidating and optimizing agent networks 03 Benchmarking Version: this is an enhanced Customized Version which, in addition, displays the average and lowest market fees, to compare with the prices of the customers agents. A report indicates the potential savings per trademark service. These benefits are impossible to replicate using in-house resources. Official fees change frequently and there is no single publicly available source for comparison data for agents professional fees. Brandstock is able to maintain its database of fees as a result of extensive ongoing research and continuing to manage a large range of matters for its international IP-owning corporate clients. It keeps the quality of its preferred agent network under constant review, seeking feedback from Brandstock managers on service levels and general performance. Subscription to either version of the IPCC also gives access to the IP Directory, which contains the contact details of the most renowned IP law firms and PTOs worldwide. Clients can be confident that price comparisons are for directly comparable services and that official registry fees are checked with the registry. Currency fluctuation risk is minimized during the exercise and prices established by negotiation are fixed typically for a two year period. This service is provided by Brandstock Services AG.

7 ENFORCEMENT Enforcement action varies greatly from country to country and there is usually more than one type of action available. Counterfeits pass over borders, often making multi-jurisdiction enforcement necessary and requiring action via Customs. Brandstock has a specialist anti-counterfeiting practise that can advise on which method of action suits the circumstances, how cost-effective each is and the impact that it is likely to have on the availability of counterfeits in the marketplace. Brandstock has a special focus on China where it can offer fixed fees for raids and other action. The safety of clients employees and contractors is a primary consideration as counterfeiters are often aggressive criminals. Furthermore, Brandstock ensures that all its experts are aware of international anti-bribery and corruption laws that prohibit use of facilitation payments and other acts. BRANDSTOCK ADVISES ON THE FOLLOWING ANTI-COUNTERFEITING ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS: Raids under criminal legislation by prosecutors, police or other government authorities Private prosecutions brought by the trademark owner Raids by applicable authorities under trading standards, tax and company regulation laws Civil lawsuits Recordal of trademark registrations with Customs and follow-up support for seizure of goods Physical market monitoring to provide data on counterfeits Investigations to identify the counterfeit supply chain and test purchases Intensive raids on retail markets Working with government agencies after seizure to ensure they have support for follow-up prosecution Organization of seminars and training sessions for Customs, police and other government agencies Working with credit card and payment companies such as PayPal to stop them processing payments of known counterfeiters PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT AND LITIGATION Brandstock handles a full range of trademark and design portfolio management services on behalf of its clients, including clearance, filing, prosecution, opposition, cancellation, revocation, renewal, litigation and IP strategy advice.

9 IP VALUATION APPENDIX - THE BRANDSTOCK GROUP In today s competitive business climate it is imperative for organizations to keep track of the value of their intangible assets. Corporations may need a valuation of their intangible assets for a number of purposes: Transactions: Sale and purchase of assets, mergers and acquisitions, transfer pricing Accounting: Recognition of acquired assets, purchase price allocation, impairment test Financing: Loan security, rating optimization, sale and leaseback Management: Licencing, budget allocations, brand control, documentation of value creation Legal: Loss and damage quantification in court, damages claims At Brandstock we realize that IP valuation carried out by the larger accountancy firms often takes too long to be done at regular intervals and at a cost that is prohibitive to all but the larger companies. In order to fill this gap in the market and allow also smaller corporations to review the value of their intangible assets, Brandstock has set up its own valuation service. Through our IP valuation service Brandstock offers individual cost-effective valuations of all intangible assets, not just Intellectual Property rights, at an affordable price and within a reasonable time frame.
