Umbrella Corp

If Umbrella Corporation did exist, how much would it be worth?

In its prime at the end of the 20th century what would Resident Evil’s Umbrella Corp be worth?

Umbrella Corp, the conglomerate from the Resident Evil series, had a hand in pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, consumer products, genetic engineering, biological weaponry and a large paramilitary organisation. How much do these various arms of the company combine to?

We busted out our old Playstation 2, loaded up the game and played some Resident Evil to ensure we got the most accurate valuation we could do. Check out the valuation below - you might be surprised...

Property Value of Umbrella Corp

Having done some extensive research playing the games and watching the six movies, we came to the conclusion that Umbrella Corp had a lot of property!

The organisation oversaw the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, medical equipment and biological weaponry, amongst other things so needless to say the would have to have a lot of property to house this. The Resident Evil films gave the greatest indication to the sheer size of the Umbrella Corp's property.

After some analysis we valued the freehold value of Umbrella Corp HQ at $38,000,000 at the height of their power (pre 1998 before the US Government's condemnation of the company).

Five billion dollars might seem like a lot of money; however this is what the company tried to ransom the t-virus for. The plan didn’t work, however if they’re charging $5bn for their product, who are we to argue?

According to the Resident Evil films at the beginning of the 21st century, the Umbrella Corporation had become the largest commercial entity in the United States. Nine out of every ten homes contain its products. Its political and financial influence is felt everywhere.

In public, it is the world's leading supplier of computer technology, medical products, and healthcare. Unknown, even to its own employees, its massive profits are generated by military technology, genetic experimentation and viral weaponry.

Looking at the largest commercial entity in the US in the early 21st century the annual turnover would be in the region of $350 billion!

Umbrella Corp Total Value

Classing Umbrella Corporation as a pharmaceutical company means that to calculate overall value, annual turnover is multiplied by 0.6, which has brought its value down towards the $210bn estimate. This is by no means a small amount – it is by far the most expensive company on our list. There are significant issues to think about when buying Umbrella Corporation though – most notably the fact that a large proportion of the staff are, in fact, zombies (although they do have a good employer rating.)
