IP and Technology Valuation

TCI frequently handles technology assessment and valuation projects. One of the most critical and complex issues negotiated between a potential licensee and licensor is the price of the technology to be acquired. This issue becomes increasingly difficult when the technologies under consideration are early-stage and largely unproved. Both parties need to develop a pricing mechanism that will establish a fair rate of return on the value or the intellectual property investment. TCI has assisted companies in pricing and valuing their technology. This experience has focused on the advanced material, medical, and pharmaceutical industries.

Ask TCI Any Question

Ask TCI Any Question (ATAQ) is a specialized information service designed to protect a client’s anonymity while providing unpublished, difficult-to-get, non-confidential information. ATAQ is designed to go beyond database searches, the information from which is frequently incomplete, inaccurate, or not timely.

Examples of ATAQ requests include, but are not limited to:

  • Competitor product information, research projects, and positioning
  • New technology development monitoring
  • Samples of newly launched products
  • Identification of existing regulatory status for APIs and marketed products
  • Current development status of pharmaceutical compounds

Client requests are handled by staff specialists with access to worldwide resources and contacts. The service allows a client’s request to be billed in units of time. Each month the client is provided with an activity report.
