Update on Exclusive Collaboration Agreement

 

Duke Royalty Limited (AIM: DUKE), a provider of alternative capital solutions to a diversified range of profitable and long-established businesses in Europe and abroad, announces that it has mutually agreed with Oliver Wyman to end the exclusive healthcare collaboration announced on 7 September 2015. 

The work that the two firms have undertaken together while developing Duke's existing royalty portfolio has adhered to the economic framework of the original agreement however, the sector focus has been broader than originally envisaged by either party.  As such, the necessity of the exclusive relationship in potential healthcare investments was deemed to be no longer relevant by either party, given that Duke's future pipeline transactions are mostly outside of this sector.

Going forward, Duke intends to continue working with Oliver Wyman on a non-exclusive basis. It also plans to supplement Oliver Wyman's due diligence efforts with relationships with additional global consulting firms which demonstrate expertise and local knowledge for each investment opportunity. 

The Company will continue to use an independent Investment Committee with additional royalty and investing expertise for investment recommendations. Oliver Wyman will continue to be represented on the Investment Committee.

Neil Johnson, CEO of Duke Royalty, said:

"Our close relationship with Oliver Wyman will remain on a non-exclusive basis, although we are now well positioned to broaden our network of consultancies across different sectors."
