Abstract

Serious analysis of royalty rates in the biopharma sector requires access to unredacted, or FOIA-released, license agreements.  Upon inspection, such agreements need transformation from tiered royalties to standardized effective royalty rates (EFRs) to be most useful in ongoing negotiations.  This study reports trends in biopharma EFRs, and other financial terms, over the past three decades.

Keywords: Royalty rates, biopharma, FOIA released, tiered royalties, EFRs
