  2. Product assets – in the form of marketed product, clinical phase development compound, or drug delivery-compound combination. These assets are commonly available as a result of a merger or change in direction of the selling company. The buyer acquires the asset for global or territorial exploitation. It is often the case that the acquiring company is normally a competitor to the seller, but in this situation the trade is of mutual benefit
  3. Royalty assets – where a specialist investment company acquires the rights to future royalty payments in return for payment of a lump sum payment to the licensor for the product
  4. Technology asset – where a buyer is acquiring a technology platform, research program, patent portfolio or other intellectual property asset.
