10.11.2004 - 2value announced today that it will co-host a conference titled "Valuing and pricing licensing deals – gaining a competitive advantage at the negotiations table". the conference organized by CHI will take place at the Host Hotel in San Francisco, CA in April 18th, 2005.
Biopharmaceutical executives are constantly required to make difficult strategic decisions – decisions that may have significant impact on their company’s ability to successfully compete in a complex and highly uncertain business environment.
For example, how should business development executives value a potential licensing opportunity and structure a deal that shares the risks and rewards in an equitable and fair manner? What is the optimal mix of upfront, milestone and royalty fees that maximize value?
Many executives rely on intuition derived from years of experience to make these decisions. But is intuition sufficient when a product in development is 10 years away from commercialization and the technical and market uncertainties are great? Making multi-million dollar bets in this type of environment requires an approach that not only helps quantify the risk associated with technology and market conditions, but also values the ability to be flexible in the staging and execution of investments when some level of uncertainty is resolved. Advanced financial evaluation and decision analysis techniques such as Real Options Analysis, Monte Carlo Simulation and Stochastic Optimization are beginning to gain ground in a number of biopharmaceutical companies and if used correctly can add a tremendous amount of value and insights to the strategic decision making process as it applies to licensing deals.
This conference will explore some of these issues and provide simple case studies to illustrate areas of application.
