|Item 1.01.||Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.|
On September 5, 2012, Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc (the Company) and Jazz Pharmaceuticals International Limited II, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (JPI II), entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the Purchase Agreement) with Meda Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Meda Pharma, Sàrl (collectively, Meda). The Purchase Agreement provides that, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, the Company, JPI II and certain other affiliates of the Company will transfer, sell and assign to Meda certain assets related to the Companys womens health business, which includes six products (the Assets), to Meda for $95 million in cash plus the cost basis of related inventory to be transferred to Meda as of the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement (the Purchase Price).
The products to be included in the sale to Meda pursuant to the Purchase Agreement are Elestrin® (estradiol gel), Gastrocrom® (cromolyn sodium, USP), Natelle® One (prenatal vitamin), AVC Cream (sulfanilamide), Gesticare® DHA (prenatal multi-vitamin) and Urelle® (urinary antiseptic). As part of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, Meda will offer positions to approximately 60 Company employees who directly support these products.
The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement (the Closing) is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including, among other conditions, regulatory approvals, the accuracy of the representations and warranties made by each of JPI II and Meda, the compliance by the parties with their respective obligations under the Purchase Agreement and the entry into certain agreements by JPI II and Meda in furtherance of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement. The Closing, which is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2012, may not be completed if any of the closing conditions are not satisfied or waived.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties regarding Meda, the Assets and the womens health business, covenants regarding the Assets and the womens health business that apply between signing and Closing, indemnification provisions, termination rights and other customary provisions. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, each of JPI II and Meda agreed to indemnify the other for breaches of representations, warranties, covenants and failure to satisfy their respective liabilities. Claims for breaches of representations and warranties and covenants to be performed prior to the Closing may not be made after December 31, 2013, other than claims for breaches of representations and warranties by the Company or JPI II relating to organization, title to assets, authority and the binding nature of the Purchase Agreement (the fundamental representations), which are limited by the statute of limitations. Liability for breaches of representations and warranties by the Company or JPI II may not exceed $11 million, other than claims for breaches of the fundamental representations which, together with other breaches of representations and warranties, may not exceed the Purchase Price. The Company has guaranteed the performance by JPI II of its obligations under the Agreement.
The foregoing summary of certain terms of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Purchase Agreement. The Company intends to file a copy of the Purchase Agreement with the Companys Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending September 30, 2012 or, if filed earlier, with a subsequent Current Report on Form 8-K that it expects to file in connection with the anticipated Closing.
