Licensing Transaction Evaluation

Licensing Transaction Evaluation

Many intellectual property licensing arrangements generate less than expected returns for the licensee, the licensor, or both. We have encountered many instances where one party to a license fails to meet the financial commitments promised in the agreement.

For IP owners, potential licensors and potential licensees considering patents, trademark, or copyright licenses and brand extension opportunities, Nevium provides a pre-transaction evaluation of the proposed transaction and a forecast of projected transaction financial returns.  

Why a Licensing Evaluation?

A licensing evaluation analysis from Nevium allows IP owners and potential licensees to evaluate alternative terms for licensing, partnership and distribution transactions, and understand the likely financial outcomes of their proposed transaction. Leveraging IP in a license should be a win-win transaction for licensor and licensee and Nevium’s pre-transaction analysis helps both parties identify and mitigate risks and avoid unexpected outcomes.  

Licensing Transaction Evaluation at Nevium

Using our experience evaluating IP licensing and brand extension opportunities, combined with career experience in corporate banking, lending and project finance, Nevium’s professionals can provide a pre-transaction assessment of your counter-party’s ability to meet their financial commitments. This additional knowledge builds a better understanding of transaction risks and allows parties to mitigate those risks before the deal is signed. Our evaluations include analysis of both financial and qualitative factors, industry and market research and a review of alternative transaction terms.
