Flamel Ireland Limited Licenses LiquiTime(R) Technology to Perrigo for U.S. Over-the-Counter Market

Related Quotes LYON, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2015) - Flamel Technologies (NASDAQ: FLML) announced today that the Company's Irish subsidiary, Flamel Ireland Limited, has licensed exclusive U.S. rights to the LiquiTime® drug delivery platform to Perrigo's Irish subsidiary, Elan Pharma International Limited, for the U.S. Over-the-Counter (OTC) drug market. LiquiTime® is Flamel's drug delivery platform for modified, extended and controlled release of liquid oral drugs.

Flamel has entered into a multi-product agreement for extended release liquid OTC products in the U.S. market whereby Flamel will receive an upfront payment of $6.0 million and will be eligible for at least $50 million in approval and launch milestones for a minimum of seven products. In addition, Flamel will receive mid-single digit royalties on net sales. The exclusive license includes Flamel's LiquiTime® Ibuprofen and LiquiTime® Guaifenesin oral suspensions.

Flamel and Perrigo believe there is a large market opportunity for other OTC extended release liquid drug formulations, including products containing active ingredient combinations for the US cough/cold market, which analysts have estimated at $6.5 billion annually.

"We are very pleased to partner with Perrigo, one of the premier companies in the US Over-the-Counter consumer goods market. Flamel's LiquiTime® platform meets the unmet medical need for patients who are seeking the convenience of extended release liquid OTC medications. In addition, our LiquiTime® drug delivery platform is patent protected through September 2025 in the US and we will have the ability to apply for product-specific patents to extend those periods of patent protection," said Michael S. Anderson, Chief Executive Officer.

"This licensing agreement with Perrigo is another important validation of the quality and differentiation of Flamel's drug delivery platform technology. Moreover, we are pleased to accomplish one of our major commitments to investors in 2015 by putting these products into the hands of a leading OTC consumer products company that may result in an attractive set of milestone and royalty payments to our Company over time.
