About Sprint Bioscience

Sprint Bioscience develops small-molecule first-in-class drug projects with a focus on oncology. Using fragment-based drug discovery, the company develops drug projects in a time- and resource-efficient way. These are then out-licensed to global drug companies during the preclinical phase. The company has successfully entered into several license agreements amounting to a potential value of USD 747 million in milestone payments as well as income from royalties on sales.

The case

  • License agreements amounting to a potential value of USD 747 million in milestone payments plus royalties on sales.
  • By entering into a license agreement early in the drug development process where the partner finances the continued development of the projects, a broad portfolio with multiple potential revenue streams and diversified risk can be built.
  • The current project portfolio consists of three projects out-licensed to global pharmaceutical companies and two internal projects under development.
