Valuation of life sciences IP is a and important and complex undertaking, as the value of the IP is often the real driving force behind a given transaction. The valuation process has evolved overtime and several analytical tools have been developed to assist in the valuation process. Topics to be discussed include:
  • Assessing valuation trends, the perceived value of intellectual property and the prices being paid
    • Understanding the influence of international markets relative to price
  • Incorporating a valuation calculation into your life sciences diligence review
  • Considering criteria that can impact the overall value of the deal
