One of the key aspects of partnering is conducting due diligence on a partner to determine under what terms a prospective partner agrees to a partnering relationship.
Understanding the flexibility of prospective partners’ negotiated deals terms provides critical insight into the negotiation process in terms of what you can expect to achieve during the negotiation of terms. Whilst many smaller companies will be seeking details of the payments clauses, the devil is in the detail in terms of how payments are triggered – contract documents provide this insight where press releases and databases do not.
In addition, contract documents provide the answers to numerous questions about a prospective partner’s flexibility on a wide range of important issues, many of which will have a significant impact on each party’s ability to derive value from the deal.
Each contract document is accessible through a link to an online version of the actual contract document as filed with the Securities Exchange Commission.
Analyzing actual company agreements allows assessment of the following:
o What is actually granted by the agreement to the partner company?
o What exclusivity is granted?
o What is the payment structure for the deal?

o What is the deal term?
