German term or phrase: aktivierter Restwert
In an Investitionsantrag (investment proposal). Company A and B have a joint venture. The joint venture is to acquire the rights to a product from company B. However, company A retains the right to acquire these rights itself instead of the joint venture: "In diesem Fall würde Gesellschaft A an Gesellschaft B die ausstehende Summe selbst begleichen und den in der Bilanz von ihrem Joint Venture aktivierten Restwert ablösen."

Zahn/Business English definietly lists "Restwert" as residual value.
"aktiviert" can be translated as either "activated" or "capitalized", though "capitalized" is the technically correct term, i.e.; taken into the assets of the balance sheet.
