Frost & Sullivan to Host Life Sciences Valuation Workshop

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

The need of big pharma to create well balanced portfolios, superlative performance in licensing activities is crucial; it is increasingly becoming risky and expensive to develop a new pharmaceutical entity.

Management has to decide, which projects and portfolios should be funded and how, in order to create the most value for the firm. This decision can be facilitated by taking advantage of rational financial models.

Recent advances in financial modeling allow decision makers to incorporate risks in those models and to identify risk reducing operating strategies, project and portfolio modeling as a suitable tool to demonstrate the relationship between financial value, R&D and marketing strategy, and risk.

According to Jayashri Kulkarni, Director, Healthcare Practice, Frost & Sullivan, "Given the consolidation wave sweeping the Life sciences industry, the Frost & Sullivan Life Sciences Valuation Workshop arises out of the sector's need for assessing the value of own/licensed pipelines, intellectual property, portfolios and provides a significant tool for both the supply and demand sides for valuing their intellectual property".

Through lectures, case studies and practical, computer-based exercises this course will enhance participants' understanding of value-creating R&D and business strategies. The workshop will help appreciate the advantages of financial modeling and will enable evaluation of highly uncertain cash flows, and improve decision making related to investments in life sciences.

He began his professional career as head of a research team at Bayer AG, Germany. Before founding Bioscience Valuation he was investment manager at New Medical Technologies, a Swiss Venture Capital Fund. Dr. Greuel holds a MBA with a finance focus from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, USA, and is an active member of the 'American Finance Association' and of the 'Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences', Baltimore, USA.
