English translation:rights similar to/related to goodwill
Explanation:
goodwill is a business accounting term that is somewhat unintuitive (i.e. hard to grasp) and denotes the value of the company (and its shares) that derives from the company's perceived value, performance and experience especially in the eyes of customers due to the companies quality of service.

Geschäftswert: goodwill (of a business), trade interest, value of subject matter

Rights related to commercial values/assets


Explanation:
Rechte = rights, claims
Geschäftswert = commercial value, trading value
ähnlich = like, similar

A literal translation would give "rights to items similar to commercial values", but I propose the translation above as a more sensible alternative.

rights similar to goodwill


Explanation:
rights related to goodwill.
Geschäftswert means goodwill. The term is even used in a lot of German annual reports, so one forgets easily that it stands for Firmenwert, Geschäftswert.
