Supply Chain Participant & Technology Transactions:
Many of our targeted clients derive the vast majority of their revenue as supply chain participants. We have significant experience structuring and negotiating development and supply agreements with the world’s largest consumer electronics companies in a manner that reflects both equity and calibrated risk allocation while maximizing revenue generation opportunities. Our representative transactions have ranged in size from $2 million to several billion in total contract value.
Component suppliers frequently fail to identify – or strategically manufacture – leverage that will level the negotiation playing field with critically important, but significantly larger, customers. As a result, component suppliers often accept deal terms that – unnecessarily – place disproportionate risk on the supplier, dramatically reduce profit margins and force the supplier to relinquish valuable intellectual property rights that are the source of long-term differentiation, competitive advantage and profit. As we have structured multiple billion dollar component supplier deals, we are particularly adept in formulating strategies that provide suppliers with fair – and profitable – supply deals.
