Funding will Provide Biohaven the Resources to Support Biohaven's Rimegepant Development Program through NDA Filing

Royalty Pharma will also purchase $50 million in common shares of Biohaven at a price of $45.00 per share, representing an approximately 19% premium over the 15-day volume-weighted average price. The participation rate commences at 2.10% on global annual net sales of products up to and equal to $1.5 billion, declining to 1.50% on global annual net sales of products exceeding $1.5 billion. These transactions are expected to provide sufficient cash to fund operations through the end of 2019.

This total of $150 million funding will provide Biohaven the resources to support the rimegepant development program through an NDA filing; the progression of BHV-3500 into a Phase-2 study; the advancement of the glutamate modulator platform; and a further development of the Company's earlier pipeline and clinical infrastructure.
