Creating value from in-house developed IP that did not align to the company’s primary industry
Oxentia were asked by a major integrated European energy company to identify new market opportunities within the lithium solid-state battery market. Our client had developed intellectual property (IP) in this area and was interested in understanding the market, how their technology compares to what is currently in the market, which companies could be competitors or partners, and ultimately help define their commercial strategy.
Oxentia used multiple subscription-based resources and our own network to deliver market research focused on developments in the lithium solid stage battery market. This included a comprehensive list of all companies involved in developing the technology, investments raised by companies and consortia, and performance metrics of products under development. Based on the outputs of the research and the commercial strategy, Oxentia valued the intellectual property and sought licensing partners based on a shared risk agreement.
The client gained a full understanding of the market value of the technology they have developed in-house. Whilst the technology was not aligned with their own primary objectives, the company was able to understand the value and commercial routes to exploit the IP through out-licensing. This allowed our client to benefit from the IP they developed in-house whilst still focusing on their core market.
