A quick look at gives me visions of Mark Cuban and Mister Wonderful asking Garo, "you want HOW MUCH?... let me give you a counter..."


Under the terms of the agreement, Ligand will pay $75 million to Agenus at closing. In addition, Ligand has the option to invest an additional $25 million on the same terms on a pro rata basis. In return for the initial $75 million payment, Ligand will receive 18.75% of the future royalties and 31.875% of the future milestone payments related to six of Agenus’ clinical-stage partnered oncology programs, including BMS-986442 (Bristol Myers Squibb), AGEN2373 (Gilead Sciences), INCAGN2385 and INCAGN2390 (Incyte), MK-4830 (Merck), and UGN-301 (UroGen Pharma). Ligand’s portion of the milestones related to these six programs has the potential to exceed $400 million, with royalties in the low single digits. In addition, Ligand will also receive a 2.625% royalty on future global net sales generated by BOT/BAL. The royalties and milestone payments owed to Ligand could be adjusted up or down based upon pre-determined future events and achievements of certain milestones....

Garo Armen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Agenus, commented, “We are pleased to partner with Ligand, a company that recognizes the paradigm-shifting potential of BOT/BAL in delivering benefit to patients across the solid tumor landscape. Ligand also recognizes the potential impact of our ongoing partnered programs, many of which are showing promise in the clinic. This collaboration enables both parties to benefit in the future potential success of these assets while simultaneously enabling Agenus to accelerate our efforts to bring BOT/BAL to patients in need.”
