Arena and Eisai Expand Marketing and Supply Agreement for Lorcaserin
New territories include Canada, Mexico and Brazil
SAN DIEGO and WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNA) and Eisai Inc. announced today the expansion of the lorcaserin marketing and supply agreement between Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Arena Pharmaceuticals GmbH, and Eisai Inc. Lorcaserin is an investigational drug candidate intended for weight management. In addition to the United States, the territories in the expanded agreement now include most of North and South America, including Canada, Mexico and Brazil. This expansion builds on the agreement executed by Eisai and Arena in July 2010 for Eisai's exclusive rights to market and distribute lorcaserin in the United States, subject to lorcaserin's approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
"Obesity is a condition that transcends geographic boundaries," said Lonnel Coats, President and Chief Executive Officer, Eisai Inc. "Through this expanded agreement, we believe Eisai has an opportunity to help address the significant and growing need for medical obesity treatments by bringing a potential new option to physicians and patients throughout the Americas."
As in the original agreement, Arena will manufacture lorcaserin at its facility in Switzerland and sell finished product to Eisai for marketing and distribution, subject to applicable regulatory approvals in the territories. Under the expanded agreement, Arena is eligible to receive increased payments based upon Eisai's net sales of lorcaserin in the United States and expanded North and South American territories. Additionally, Arena will receive an upfront payment and is eligible to receive regulatory and development milestone payments.
