Affymax/Takeda's recently Amended Agreement...Estimate the revenues...run the DCF's!!!
"The Amendment effectuates a transfer of regulatory responsibilities, including the OMONTYS New Drug Application, or NDA, and all manufacturing, and development responsibilities from the Company to Takeda as soon as practicable but in any event prior to April 30, 2013 with related transition services and support. Takeda has agreed to reimburse the Company for certain personnel costs to assist in the transition and investigation activities for the month of April in order to support the planned transition. Takeda receives a worldwide, exclusive royalty-bearing license under Affymax and joint Takeda-Affymax patents to develop, manufacture and commercialize OMONTYS.
As a result of the Amendment, Takeda assumes full responsibility for OMONTYS, including the ongoing recall and investigation of OMONTYS as well as any subsequent decisions as to whether the product may be subject to re-introduction if Takeda is able to complete the investigation and address the safety concerns to the satisfaction of the FDA. If Takeda decides to re-introduce OMONTYS, all of which is highly uncertain, the Company is eligible to receive royalties and (i) potential commercial milestone payments totaling up to $180 million of which $10 million is payable upon the first commercial sale after re-introduction of OMONTYS in the U.S., of which a $10 million and another $10 million relates to U.S. sales-based milestones, and of which $150 million relates to sales-based milestones in amounts as previously disclosed outside of the U.S. but now including Japan as a result of the Amendment and (ii) a potential development milestone payment of $5 million payable either upon regulatory approval in the E.U. or Japan. The royalties are tiered in the range of 13-17% with respect to net sales in the U.S. and in the range of 13-24% depending on the level of net sales by Takeda worldwide ex- U.S."
maxdad, I see an opportunity with AFFY, QCOR & Takeda that is mind-boggling. I want to bounce it off you alone, if there is a way to facilitate such communication. If there is an open door and you are ameniable then let me know how this can be facilitated with certainty of identity and security. If not due to privacy issues that too is okay. Jim
