This presentation provides a summary of the results of a targeted survey to LES Life Sciences Sector members in Life Sciences industries (i.e. biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, and drug delivery). It is an attempt to benchmark important areas of deal-making for Life Sciences licensing professionals. These results illustrate detailed analysis on fixed royalties, tiered royalties, deal terms, and therapeutic areas. It provides a more current perspective on licensing royalty rates and deal terms than the Freedom of Information (FOI) approach allows, and provides information not routinely found in other licensing royalty rate sources or publications. 

This survey is the 5th edition of the LES Life Sciences Royalty Rates and Deal Terms Survey, and has been executed on a global scale. We trust that this report is a useful tool for our LES Life Sciences members and colleagues who are interested in the dynamic and expanding field of licensing partnerships and intellectual asset management.
