As Chief Economist of the IPKat, I am delighted to announce that we have decided to take the next step to grow the IPKat: go paw-blic.

The IPKat, Inc. is offering 10,000 shares of Class A common stock.  This is our Initial Public Offuring (IPO) and no public market currently exists for these stocks.  We anticipate that the IPO price will be between £25 and £30 per share. The shares are expected to trade on the Mew York Stock Exchange on August 8, 2016 under the ticker symbol IPKT.

Business Strategy
Recognising the growth in niche markets, the IPKat has decided to create a niche market. Using a top-down strategy to uniquely customize multidisciplinary imperatives, the IPKat will amplify its digital pawprint. We're going feral.

The future of IPKat is holistic.  One of our top in-house prior-artists, Merpel, is expected to make her real-world debut in IP's Next Top Cat.  We envision strong growth in this new business line, by cross-pollinating merchandising with an innovative-dubstep album featuring Merpel's lyrical stylings with her group, DJ Mer Pel: Havoc Siameze-E and the IPKats. Merpel's fragrance line, "Heat by Merpel" is envisioned for 2017 targeting the profitable feminine market, with "Heat Panther" aimed at the masculine sector.  Both elixirs will provide that unique Merpel scent-mark, with notes of feline pheromones, an innuendo of TK, and a lingering whisker of catnip.  In anticipation of the roaring success of these products, the IPKat will white-label Heat to large retail outlets such as Katsda, Spaysavers, and Carrefur.

Review of our current IP holdings indicates great organic potential in the IPKat trademark.  A global, user-centric paradigm will pro-catively facilitate international licensing.  As part of our review of face time, synergistic partnerships will move forward with granular thought leaders. We will think outside the litter box.

Recognising it's meow or never, the IPKat team looks forward to horizontally disrupting our synergy to aggregate user-centric deliverables with the IP stakeholder community.  We've got a good feline about this.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.  This press release is tied to the first of April, more details are available here.

  1. nice one - you had me there for a minute...check the date!

  2. Is that an entire squadron of flying pigs I see overhead? (where's my umbrella?)

  3. Unfortunately, with the Brexit coming up, this Kat's tale might end too early, so I suggest to rather trade on the Isle of Man stock exchange, which will at least for IP purpose remain part of the European Union. In that case, money will be purring in.

  4. Schon gut, but what will you Kittens feed on? Kettles of fish?

    How does your (patented?) business plan intend to monetize your IP assets?

    By trolling? Or is it trawling?

    And what will be the corporate form? LLP? GmBH? A school of fish?


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
