RUC China Trademark & Brand Institute Released “Trademark & Brand Value Rankings of Listed Companies in Shanghai and Shenzhen in 2017”


Recently, RUC China Trademark & Brand Institute released “Trademark & Brand Value Rankings of Listed Companies in Shanghai and Shenzhen in 2017” (below referred to as “2017 Rankings”). The Rankings were made for the second time ever since they were first released in the year of 2016. The Rankings targeting at trademark & brand value of listed companies, were co-accomplished by the group leader Prof. MAO Jiye, dean of Business School, Renmin University of China (RMBS) and a group of expert professors and assistant professors from Departments of Marketing, Finance, Management Science and Engineering and General Management at RMBS.

The 2017 Rankings adopted an evaluation method from both financial perspective and customers’ perspective and brought in the concept of “brand strength”. By measuring excess earnings of brand and by discounting and bringing brand income and brand strength into measurement, an evaluation model of measuring the brand value on a quantitative basis was constructed.

In terms of trademark & brand income, profit sharing rate is adopted to quantify the excess profits and it is reckoned as the value proportion that trademark and brand create for the company. Brand strength consisting of customer reviews, brand building and brand management, comprehensively indicates revenue risks of trademark & brand. Combined with the enterprise’s capital cost, it constitutes the discount rate of trademark & brand’s excess earnings.

The research group declared the evaluation rankings have the following characteristics: adopting a comprehensive evaluation model, quantifying excess earnings of trade & brand based on profit sharing rate, improving the evaluation index system, stressing trade & brand’s social responsibilities and liabilities, collecting valid data through multiple channels and being objective, authoritative and liable by using listed companies’ publically disclosed information and official data.
