Transaction Details

Antares Pharma stated that as per terms of the agreement, Ferring Pharma will pay the purchase price in four installments consisting of a $2.0 million upfront payment, a second installment of $2.75 million payable, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions, a third installment of $4.75 million payable upon satisfaction of customary closing conditions and the final payment of $5.0 million would be made upon the completion of the transaction.

Until the date of this announcement, Antares has been the worldwide supplier of ZOMAJET™ devices to its partners Ferring Pharma and JCR Pharmaceutical Company Ltd, and it will continue to manufacture and supply the devices until the completion date pursuant to existing supply arrangements. During the completion period, Antares Pharma will continue to receive payment for ZOMAJET™ devices manufactured and supplied to its partners and a royalty on net product sales in accordance with the existing license and supply agreements. The transaction is subject to certain customary closing conditions and expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

Reason for Sale

Antares Pharma stated that the sale of a non-core legacy asset which represented approximately $5.5 million annual revenue in the past three years, will allow the Company to better focus its resources on several key strategic objectives which it believes have potential to increase shareholder value.

The transaction with Ferring Pharma will generate additional non-dilutive cash which the Company intends to use to invest in its pipeline in addition to supporting the potential launch of Antares' next proprietary product, XYOSTED, for testosterone replacement therapy. XYOSTED's New Drug Application is currently under active review at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Company is working closely with the FDA toward a potential approval in October.
