Ocean Tomo provides technology rich companies with holistic advisory, investment banking and capital raising services. Our services fill a void in traditional investment banking by blending those functions with our unique understanding of intellectual property (IP) – an underutilized asset class that requires specific expertise to realize value.

Ocean Tomo leverages a network of relationships with hedge funds, private equity and other institutional investors to support royalty monetization activities on behalf of our clients.

What Is Royalty Monetization?

Royalty monetization is the upfront payment of cash by an investor in exchange for full or partial rights to receive future royalty payments from licensees. Transactions can be structured as full or partial sales (with a trailing component), depending on the needs of the seller and characteristics of the royalty stream.

What Are The Benefits Of Royalty Monetization?

Royalty monetization helps accelerate time to cash flow for licensors by offering a lump sum cash payment today rather than fragmented royalty payments spread over several years. The cash can be used to fund new research projects or corporate initiatives, and offers a form of non-dilutive, non-interest bearing financing that can be recognized as revenue –helping to improve financial performance.

Who Are Strong Candidates For Royalty Monetization?

Monetization of royalty-bearing cash flows is an option for entities owning existing agreements with a credit-worthy counterparty. While royalty monetization has historically been very popular with large firms in the pharmaceutical space, it can also be extended to all industries, as well as start-ups, NPE’s, and other companies with out-licensed technology. The target transaction size depends on the nature of the cash flow stream – Ocean Tomo transactions typically exceed $10 million.
