Licensing, Joint Venture (JV) & Alliance Agreement

 

The Strategic Alliance Agreement  

The strategic alliance agreement should be outlined in a formal document that sets out what each party expects to bring to the alliance. There are two approaches to the agreement. The approach that fits your company probably will depend on your company’s size, your partner’s size, how long you’ve been in business, and the type of product or service being offered through the alliance.

    • Loosely defined agreements. "Young" or small businesses may prefer to have an agreement that is broad and loosely defined to allow the partnership to grow in new directions as their business evolves.
    • Tightly defined agreements. Larger or older businesses, or those in evolving technology fields, may fare better with an agreement that spells out the precise scope of the alliance and all the details of how it will be accomplished.

Whichever type of agreement fits your business, all agreements should include:

    • your common goal
    • a strategy to define the role of each partner to accomplish that goal
    • the parameters of working toward that common goal.

A tightly defined agreement may also:

    • identify key steps that each partner will take to meet the requirements of the agreement
    • include a time frame for achieving those key steps
    • outline each partner’s accountability by including consequences for "worst-case scenarios" such as missed deadlines, budget overruns, or products not delivered as promised or in the format expected
    • provide a framework for resolving conflicts if they occur.

The Term Sheet or Letter of Intent (LOI), which precedes the Definitive Agreement, is a confidential document, usually prepared by the buyer or investor, which outlines in general terms the purchase or investment agreement between the parties.  All of the following are the same thing: term sheet, memorandum of understanding (MOU), letter of intent (LOI), heads of agreement, deal points, etc. Most of the time it is not a legally binding commitment to buy, sell, or invest.

 

However, certain provisions such as confidentiality stand still and payment of consultants during the diligence period should be and usually are binding. I refer to the LOI as a “handshake in writing.   The main purpose is to assure that the parties agree on the general terms of the deal before starting due diligence. Without the terms written, the parties will expose themselves to crucial ambiguities and omissions.
