Item 1.01        Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On April 26, 2024, Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Authorized Generic Agreement (the “AG Agreement”) with Hikma Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. (“Hikma”), pursuant to which the Company granted to Hikma certain rights relating to an authorized generic version of the Company’s Nucynta IR product (the “Nucynta IR Authorized Generic”) and the Company’s Nucynta ER product (the “Nucynta ER Authorized Generic” and, collectively, the “Nucynta AG Products”) in the United States.


Under the terms of the AG Agreement, the Company granted Hikma the exclusive right to market the Nucynta AG Products in the United States. Hikma agreed to launch the Nucynta IR Authorized Generic and the Nucynta ER Authorized Generic 30 days prior to loss of exclusivity for each product or earlier under certain circumstances as set forth in the AG Agreement. Hikma will pay the Company a percentage of Net Profits (as defined in the AG Agreement) on sales of the Nucynta AG Products, with the Company’s profit share percentage beginning in the mid-80% range, and declining based on the number of third-party generic equivalents sold for each Nucynta AG Product, if any. During the term of the AG Agreement, the Company will supply Hikma with its requirements of the Nucynta AG Products at Collegium’s fully burdened manufacturing cost and Hikma will purchase the Nucynta AG Products exclusively from the Company. In addition, Hikma agreed that it will not market any generic equivalent of Nucynta IR or Nucynta ER at the same time it is marketing the Nucynta AG Products.


The AG Agreement has an initial term of five years, with automatic one-year renewals unless notice of termination is provided by either party prior to expiration. The AG Agreement may be terminated by either party in the event of uncured material breach by the other party or certain bankruptcy or insolvency events experienced by the other party. In addition, if Hikma elects to launch its own generic equivalent for either (or both) of Nucynta IR or Nucynta ER and terminate the AG Agreement, it must provide one years’ notice prior to doing so, and may only provide such notice on or after the first anniversary of the first Nucynta AG Product launch.


The foregoing description of the AG Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the AG Agreement, which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2024.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
