2014 Global "Life Sciences" Royalty Rates & Deal Terms Survey

The LES (USA & Canada) Life Sciences Sector, in coordination with the Licensing Executive Society International (LESI) Life Sciences Sector, is pleased to present the 2014 LES Global Life Sciences Royalty Rates and Deal Terms Survey. This landmark report is one of the many benefits of LES membership and reflects the organization's objective to provide its members with relevant, cutting edge licensing information generally not available from other sources.

We believe you will find this report contains many keen insights on some of the most important areas of deal making in our industry.

We would like to specifically acknowledge and express our appreciation to each survey contributor.  Because of the confidential manner in which the survey is executed, LES does not know who participated.  However, we applaud their efforts and willingness to share their deal-related information. It is because of these members that we have this survey report to issue. Thank you, and your companies, for your participation.

The Survey Committee was assisted in this effort by Veris Consulting, a survey research firm in the Washington, DC area, specializing in confidential studies for industry and professional associations.  The Veris survey instruments and data processes ensure the confidentiality of all company and deal information reported. Individual company and individual deal data is NEVER reported in any individual manner, only in aggregate analyses as part of a larger sample. We appreciate their fine work in assisting with the survey and this report.

Finally, we want to acknowledge the contributions of the Survey Committee members (listed in the report).  It was their aggregate efforts that made the survey a reality for the professional benefit of LES (USA & Canada) and LESI Life Sciences Sector members. 

If you have any questions or suggestions on the survey, please contact any of us at info@les.org.
