There are two main forms of agreement terms that allow a party to an agreement to obtain rights to an asset subject to a future event, namely option and valuation.

Evaluation agreements allow a party to the agreement to obtain rights to a technology or compound, subject to a period of time to evaluate the quality, scope and applicability of the technology to its purpose. final. Normally the technology is early stage and/or unproven and the partner company wants to evaluate the technology as part of the due diligence process before signing a long-term license agreement.

Evaluation agreements have been a mainstay of technology licensing since the early days. An option agreement differs in that the option often forms part of an agreement already entered into by the parties, providing the party with the right to option to retain or extend certain rights to the technology already associated.

Option agreements are becoming increasingly popular because they create additional flexibility in an agreement for additional rights that the parties do not wish to commit to at the start of the agreement.

The report provides a detailed understanding and analysis of how and why companies enter into option and valuation agreements. The majority of agreements are multi-component, with the licensor retaining either an option right or an evaluation right over the product resulting from the research collaboration. There are also many pure option and evaluation agreements in which the originator of the product engages a partner in order to advance the product or compound to a point where the licensee might seek to enter into a licensing agreement. .

Understanding the flexibility of the terms of agreements negotiated by a potential partner provides essential insight into the negotiation process in terms of what you can expect to accomplish when negotiating the terms.
