Royalty asset purchase deals are increasing in prevalence as smaller companies and academic institutions are seeking new revenue streams and mitigation of risk.
Companies generally seek to dispose of a royalty asset in order to raise funds to invest in others parts of its business, or to bridge a shortfall in the company’s finances.
Historically this type of deal has been low in prevalence, primarily due to the very strict criteria imposed by royalty financing companies when selecting prospective investment targets. However recent years have seen an increase in royalty financing deal popularity, and it is anticipated that the current financial climate will induce more companies to seek monetization of royalty assets.
Royalty financing provides an alternative to equity financing that provides a lower cost-of-capital source of funding.
Royalty financiers are a keen group but are reluctant in the amount of risk they are willing to take. However, the increased number of players in the royalty financing play will increase competition and drive up deal prices.
