Milan, 3 December 2021 - Recordati announces the signing of a share purchase agreement to acquire EUSA Pharma (UK) Ltd, a global specialty pharmaceutical company with headquarters in the United Kingdom, focused on rare and niche oncology diseases and controlled by funds managed by EW Healthcare Partners.

Recordati is acquiring EUSA Pharma for an enterprise value of €750 million; the payment of the consideration will be funded via existing liquidity and bridge financing fully underwritten by J.P. Morgan and Mediobanca.

EUSA Pharma was founded in March 2015 and has grown rapidly into a world-class pharmaceutical company with a portfolio of 4 rare and niche oncology products with approximately €130 million LTM(1) Net Sales at 30 June 2021 and Net Debt of around €26 million at that same date. The company has extensive commercial operations in the EMEA and United States, alongside a presence in other international markets. The company employs more than 200 people with strong patient centric culture and deep disease area expertise.

EUSA Pharma's products include: Qarziba®, an anti-GD2 monoclonal antibody indicated for high-risk neuroblastoma approved in Europe and other countries, and with potential for expansion in the US; Sylvant®, an anti-IL-6 monoclonal antibody, the first and only ever approved treatment for Idiopathic Multicentric Castleman's disease (iMCD) in US and in Europe, marketed also in other countries and well positioned in a market with limited options for patients; Fotivda®, an oral highly selective small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptors 1,2 and 3, approved for first-line treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma in Europe and other countries; Caphosol® , a medical device for oral mucositis due to chemo and radio therapy, approved in US, EU and other markets.

The transaction would provide Recordati with an expanded portfolio of rare disease pharmaceutical products which is expected to contribute in 2023 revenue of over €150 million and EBITDA(2) of approximately €50 million. Non-recurring costs in 2022-2023 from on-going manufacturing technology transfer and acquisition and integration related expenses are estimated to be approximately €35 million (subject to timing of close).

"EUSA Pharma has a highly efficient commercial infrastructure, deep disease area expertise and an organisation with a very strong patient centric culture which we look forward to welcoming and integrating into Recordati, maintaining key skills, knowledge, business know-how and customer relations" commented Robert Koremans, Chief Executive Officer.

About Neuroblastoma

Neuroblastoma is a rare form of cancer, arising from nerve cells in various locations in the body, primarily in children aged below 10 years old. About 49% of neuroblastoma patients are high-risk, meaning they have the greatest likelihood of relapse during treatment (survival rate is ca. 40-60% at 5 years). There are around 9-13 new cases per million children a year, resulting in ca. 600-700 new cases per year in the US and ca. 1.000 new cases per year in the EU.

About Qarziba® (dinutuximab beta)

Dinutuximab beta is a chimeric monoclonal IgG1 antibody that is specifically directed against the carbohydrate moiety of disialoganglioside 2 (GD2), which is overexpressed on neuroblastoma cells. The efficacy of dinutuximab beta has been evaluated in a randomised controlled trial comparing the administration of dinutuximab beta with or without IL-2 in the first-line treatment of patients with high-risk neuroblastoma and in two single-arm studies in the relapsed/refractory setting. Dinutuximab beta was approved by the European Commission on 8 May 2017 and is indicated for the treatment of high-risk neuroblastoma in patients aged 12 months and above, who have previously received induction chemotherapy and achieved at least a partial response, followed by myeloablative therapy and stem cell transplantation, as well as patients with history of relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma, with or without residual disease. Prior to the treatment of relapsed neuroblastoma, any actively progressing disease should be stabilised by other suitable measures.

In patients with a history of relapsed/refractory disease and in patients who have not achieved a complete response after first line therapy, dinutuximab beta should be combined with interleukin-2(IL-2).

About Castleman's disease

Castleman's disease (CD) describes a spectrum of rare lymph node disorder, asymptomatic in 80% of cases; symptomatic patients (with mild-to-severe symptoms) suffers from Multicentric CD (MCD) ‒ Idiopathic MCD (iMCD) are characterized by severe systemic symptoms, lack of disease awareness (causing misdiagnosis) and survival rate between 50-80% in 5 years. There are around 2-3 new cases per million people a year, resulting in ca. 700-1.000 new cases per year in the US and ca. 900-1.400 new cases per year in the EU.

About Sylvant® (siltuximab)

Sylvant® is the only approved treatment for Idiopathic Multicentric Castleman's disease (iMCD) in the United States and Europe. It first received approval in the United States in 2014, with subsequent approvals occurring in a number of countries thereafter. The approval of Sylvant® was based on the MCD2001 study (NCT01024036); an international, randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled trial including 79 subjects. More than one-third of subjects treated with Sylvant® plus best supportive care (BSC) had a durable tumour and symptomatic response, compared to none of the subjects who received placebo plus BSC (34% versus 0% according to stringent criteria; 95% CI: 11.1, 54.8; p=0.0012).
