4 Private Equity (Venture) in 90 seconds The attorney’s view of VC VC syndicate will put $20-50+MM at risk for 5-7+ years to get 5-10X return (but 80% of the time they lose their shirts) VCs demand an academic license broad enough to cover all therapeutic indications but want to pay reagent prices Growing concern about the strategic value of university-IP, but they still want it The second most important aspect of a university license is the ability of the newco to do early, high-value retention deals with pharma

5 What a VC would like to see in an academic license Apportionment Assignability Field (broad) Founder involvement and retention Improvements (did you hear pipelining?) Patent coverage Pharma-friendly economic terms (generics/biosimilars, royalties)

Institutional VC Complementary with existing corporate programs vs. alignment with rest of portfolio Corporate VC must keep in mind broad interests of shareholders vs interests of LPs Level of governance Level of risk-taking vs need for high IRR Level of risk? Daunting in view of decade-long drought /famine

7 Why Corporate VC? Additional avenue of contract consideration Seat at board table (often observer) Opportunity for payout downstream Research/business dichotomy of large pharma Depends on resources of the large pharma
