    Our Track Record

    We conducted a detailed assessment of the market opportunities, technology risks and developments, launch and marketing costs via scenarios of “go-it-alone”, “outright sale”, “out-licensing for royalties” as well as “out-licensing with co-promotion”. The value generated was modelled and the scenarios were prioritised. Partnering and deal strategies were developed for the selected optimal strategy and incorporated into a business plan.

    PharmaVentures developed a customised search strategy based on the specific requirements of the client, which involved a systemic country by country identification of candidates with the correct therapeutic indications, combined with their commercial potential and availability for the territories of interest.

    PharmaVentures conducted a compound valuation (bottom-up and benchmarking using PharmaDeals Agreements® data) providing the basis for future negotiations. We also carried out a thorough company screening and evaluation assessment to identify and prioritise potential licensees. Following the screening, within the space of a month our transaction team approached all the target companies with a carefully constructed value proposition using a non-confidential information package.
