If, (i) prior to completion by uniQure of all of its activities under the Manufacturing Development Plan, Partner has assumed Manufacturing responsibility (whether by itself or through any of its Affiliates or designated Subcontractors) for the Licensed Products for use in the Field in the Territory pursuant to Section 5.3.2 (Transfer of Manufacturing Responsibility), including responsibility for the [*], and (ii) as of the Manufacturing Responsibility Transfer Notice Date  a CRE Default (as determined pursuant to Section 13.2.2(b) (CRE Defaults)) of uniQure’s obligation to perform the activities under the Manufacturing Development Plan in accordance with Section 5.3.1 (uniQure Responsibility) did not exist (whether determined prior to, on or after the Manufacturing Responsibility Transfer Notice Date), then the Parties in good faith will negotiate an equitable reduction of the Regulatory Milestone Payment payable to uniQure upon achievement of the [*] based on each Party’s pro rata contributions to the achievement of such milestone event (e.g., if Partner or

50 -


its Affiliate or designated Subcontractor contributed [*]% of the activities required to obtain the [*], then such Regulatory Milestone Payment would be reduced by [*]%), and Partner will pay to uniQure only that agreed percentage of such Regulatory Milestone Payment attributable to uniQure’s contribution to achievement of the [*]. If the Parties fail to agree upon such apportionment, then such dispute will be resolved in accordance with the specified expedited arbitration procedures set forth in Section 14.7 (Specified Expedited Arbitrations) and, for the avoidance of doubt, the pre-arbitration negotiation procedure set forth in Section 14.1 (Pre-Arbitration Negotiation) will not apply.

(c)

8.10

Blocked Payments.  If by reason of Applicable Law in any country or region, it becomes impossible or illegal for a Party to transfer, or have transferred on its behalf, payments owed to the other Party hereunder, then such Party will promptly notify the other Party of the conditions preventing such transfer and such payments will be deposited in local currency in the relevant country or region to the credit of the other Party in a recognized banking institution designated by the other Party or, if none is designated by the other Party within a period of [*], in a recognized banking institution selected by the transferring Party, as the case may be, and identified in a written notice given to the other Party.

8.12

Financial Records and Audits.  Each Party will maintain complete and accurate records for at least [*] following the relevant Financial Quarter to which they pertain in sufficient detail to permit the other Party to confirm the accuracy of the amount of costs and expenses incurred in connection with the performance of the uniQure Development Activities, Royalties, and other amounts payable under this Agreement. Upon reasonable prior written notice, such records will be made available during regular business hours for examination by an independent certified public accountant of recognized international standing selected by the examining Party and reasonably acceptable to the other Party for the sole purpose of verifying for the examining Party the accuracy of the financial reports furnished by the other Party (the “Examined Party”) pursuant to this Agreement or of any payments made, or required to be made, by such Examined Party pursuant to this Agreement; provided that such independent accounting firm is subject to customary written obligations of confidentiality and non-use applicable to each Party’s Confidential Information.  Such audit will not be (a) performed more frequently than once per Financial Year during the Term or once during the [*] period after the expiration or termination of this Agreement, (b) conducted for any Financial Year more than [*] after the end of such year, or (c) repeated for any Financial Year or with respect to the same set of records (unless a material discrepancy with respect to such records is discovered during a subsequent audit).  Such accountant will not disclose the Examined Party’s Confidential Information to the examining Party or to any Third Party, except to the extent such disclosure is necessary to verify the accuracy of the financial reports furnished by the Examined Party or the amount of payment by the Examined Party under this Agreement. If such accountant concludes either that an additional amount is owed to a Party but unpaid, or that an amount paid by a Party was in excess of the amount owed, then, in either case, the Party that owes the other Party an amount (i.e., the amount owed but unpaid by such Party or the amount that such Party was overpaid) will pay such amount plus interest (as set forth in Section 8.11 (Late Payments)) from the original due date or the overpayment date, as applicable) to the other Party within [*] after the delivery by the accountant of the accountant’s written report to the Parties so concluding.  If each Party owes an amount(s) to the other Party, then the accountant will net such amounts (including the interest that would be payable thereon), such that only the Party that owes the larger aggregate amount to the other Party will be required to make a payment as a result of such audit.  The examining Party will bear the full cost of such audit unless such audit reveals that the Examined Party owes the examining Party an amount that is more than [*] percent ([*]%) of the amount actually due for the time period being audited, in which case the Examined Party will reimburse the examining Party for the reasonable audit fees for such examination.

8.13

Taxes.  If under any Applicable Law or regulation of any country of the Territory withholding of Taxes of any type, levies, or other charges is required with respect to any amounts payable hereunder to a Party, the other Party (“Withholding Party”) will apply the withholding or deduction as so required and will promptly pay such Tax, levy, or charge to the proper Governmental Authority, and will promptly furnish the Party with proof of such payment.  The Withholding Party will have the right to withhold or deduct any such Tax, levy, or charge actually paid from payment due to the Party or be promptly reimbursed

55 -


by the Party if no further payments are due to the Party.  Any amounts so withheld or deducted from the payment due to the Party pursuant to the relevant law or regulation will be deemed paid to such Party for all purposes of this Agreement.  Each Withholding Party agrees to assist the other Party in claiming exemption from (or reduction in) such deductions or withholdings under double taxation or similar agreement or treaty from time-to-time in force and in minimizing the amount required to be so withheld or deducted.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, all sums payable by either Party hereunder are stated exclusive of any sales tax, value added tax, or other similar taxes, assessments, and charges imposed by the jurisdiction of the Withholding Party or the payee and any such taxes will be paid by the Withholding Party, except in the case that the paying Party assigns, transfers, or otherwise disposes of some or all of its rights and obligations to any Person and if, as a result of such action, the withholding or deduction of Tax required by Applicable Law with respect to payments under this Agreement is increased (without an offsetting credit that can be used by the other Party in the current tax year), in which case any amount payable to the other Party under this Agreement will be increased by the incremental amount of such withholding or deduction of Tax (determined on a “with or without” basis) (the “Incremental Withholding Amount”).  If the other Party is subsequently able to claim a credit from the relevant Governmental Authority in an amount that includes all or a part of the Incremental Withholding Amount, then the other Party will notify the Withholding Party of such event and will apply such amount as an offset or rebate against any amounts payable by the Withholding Party to the other Party under this Agreement.

After receipt of the first Regulatory Approval of any Licensed Product in the first Major Country, Partner may terminate this Agreement in its entirety for convenience and without cause upon [*] prior written notice to uniQure.

13.2.2

Termination For Cause.

(a)

Defaults.  If a Party materially breaches any of its material obligations (including, for the avoidance of doubt, any of its obligations that are effective prior to the Effective Date as set forth in Section 15.1 (Effective Date)), excluding any breach or alleged breach by a Party to use Commercially Reasonable Efforts as required under this Agreement (as such breach of alleged breach will be governed by the provisions of Section 13.2.2(b) below) (a “Default”), then the non-defaulting Party may deliver

77 -


notice to the defaulting Party describing in reasonable detail the alleged Default in question, including the specific alleged material breach(es) of such material obligations by the defaulting Party (a “Default Notification”).  For any Default arising from a failure to make an undisputed payment set forth in this Agreement, the allegedly defaulting Party will have [*] from the receipt of the applicable Default Notification to cure such payment Default. For all other Defaults, the allegedly defaulting Party will have [*] from the date of the Default Notification to cure such Default, provided that if such Default is not reasonably capable of cure within such [*] period, but is capable of cure within [*] from the date of such Default Notification (or such other period as may be agreed by the non-defaulting Party), then the defaulting Party may submit in writing to the non-defaulting Party, within [*] of such Default Notification, a reasonable cure plan that is reasonably acceptable to the non-defaulting Party, to remedy such Default as soon as reasonably possible and in any event prior to the end of such [*] period (or such other period as may be agreed by the non-defaulting Party), and, upon such submission, the [*] cure period will be automatically extended for so long as the defaulting Party continues to use reasonable efforts to cure such Default in accordance with such cure plan, but for no more than [*] (or such other period as may be agreed by the non-defaulting Party). If the defaulting Party fails to cure a Default within the applicable cure period or in accordance with the applicable cure plan as set forth above, then the non-defaulting Party may terminate this Agreement effective upon written notice of termination to the other Party.

(b)

CRE Defaults.  If a Party (the “Alleging Party”) believes in good faith that the other Party (the “Alleged Party”) has not used Commercially Reasonable Efforts as required under this Agreement (a “CRE Default”), then the Alleging Party may deliver notice to the Alleged Party describing in reasonable detail the alleged CRE Default in question, including the specific alleged failure(s) of the Alleged Party to use such Commercially Reasonable Efforts (a “CRE Default Notification”).  Within [*] after receipt of a CRE Default Notification, the Alleged Party will either (x) submit in writing to the Alleging Party a good faith cure plan setting out the rectifying steps proposed to be taken by the Alleged Party to cure its alleged failure(s) to use Commercially Reasonable Efforts, including a timeline for doing so (a “CRE Cure Plan”), or (y) submit in writing to the Alleging Party a good faith explanation in reasonable detail as to why the Alleged Party disagrees with the alleged CRE Default (a “CRE Explanation”).

(i)

CRE Cure Plans.  If the Alleged Party timely submits a CRE Cure Plan in accordance with the foregoing clause (b), then within [*] thereafter the Alleging Party, having considered the CRE Cure Plan in good faith, will respond in writing to the Alleged Party either accepting such CRE Cure Plan, proposing to modify such CRE Cure Plan (in which case the proposed modifications will be specified in

78 -


reasonable detail), or rejecting such CRE Cure Plan. If the Alleging Party accepts the CRE Cure Plan (or does not timely respond), then the Alleged Party will implement the CRE Cure Plan in accordance with its terms; provided that, if the Alleged Party fails to implement the CRE Cure Plan in any material respect, then the Alleging Party may terminate this Agreement upon [*] written notice to the Alleged Party. If the Alleging Party timely responds and proposes to modify the CRE Cure Plan, then the Parties will discuss in good faith the proposed modification for a period of [*], and if the Parties agree upon a modified CRE Cure Plan during such [*] period, then such modified CRE Cure Plan will constitute an “accepted” CRE Cure Plan hereunder and the provisions in the immediately preceding sentence with respect to an accepted CRE Cure Plan will apply. If the Parties do not agree on a modified CRE Cure Plan during such [*] period, then the CRE Cure Plan will constitute a “rejected” CRE Cure Plan hereunder and the provisions in the immediately following sentence with respect to a rejected CRE Cure Plan will apply.  If the Alleging Party timely rejects the CRE Cure Plan, then the provisions of sub-clause (ii) below will apply.

(ii)

CRE Explanation.  If the Alleged Party timely submits a CRE Explanation in accordance with the foregoing clause (b), then within [*] thereafter the Alleging Party, having considered the CRE Explanation in good faith, will respond in writing to the Alleged Party either accepting or rejecting the CRE Explanation. If the Alleging Party accepts the CRE Explanation (or fails to timely respond), then the related CRE Default Notification will be deemed revoked and the Alleged Party will have no further obligation in respect thereof. If either (A) the Alleging Party timely rejects the CRE Explanation or (C) the Alleging Party timely rejects the CRE Cure Plan in accordance with the foregoing sub-clause (i), then the alleged CRE Default (including the matters that have transpired between the Parties pursuant to this Section 13.2.2(b) in respect thereof) will be referred to the Executive Officers for attempted resolution.  If the Executive Officers are unable to resolve the alleged CRE Default within [*] after such matter is referred to them, then, upon the written request of either Party to the other Party, the alleged CRE Default will be subject to arbitration in accordance with Section 14.2 (Arbitration) (and, for the avoidance of doubt, the pre-arbitration negotiation procedure set forth in Section 14.1 (Pre-Arbitration Negotiation) will not apply) to determine whether or not such CRE Default occurred.

(iii)

Resolution by Arbitration.  If the alleged CRE Default is referred to arbitration in accordance with the foregoing sub-clause (ii), then:

79 -


(1)if the arbitrators determine that there was not any CRE Default by the Alleged Party, then the related CRE Default Notification will be deemed revoked and the Alleged Party will have no further obligation in respect thereof;

(2)if the arbitrators determinate that there was a CRE Default by the Alleged Party but a CRE Cure Plan was timely submitted by the Alleged Party and such CRE Cure Plan was a reasonable cure plan, then such CRE Cure Plan will constitute an “accepted” CRE Cure Plan and the provisions in the foregoing sub-clause (i) with respect to an accepted CRE Cure Plan will apply; or

(3)if the arbitrators determine that there was a CRE Default by the Alleged Party and either a CRE Cure Plan was not timely submitted by the Alleged Party or a CRE Cure Plan was timely submitted by the Alleged Party but such CRE Cure Plan was not a reasonable cure plan, then the Alleging Party may terminate this Agreement by [*] written notice to the Alleged Party.

(c)

Payment Adjustment in Lieu of Termination for Third Party Competitive Product.

(i)

If (i) Partner has the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to, and in accordance with, clause (a) or clause (b) of Section 13.2.2 (Termination for Cause) as a result of a Default or CRE Default, respectively, of uniQure of any of its obligations under this Agreement and (ii) as a proximate cause of such Default (in the case of a termination right under Section 13.2.2(a)) or such CRE Default (in the case of a termination right under Section 13.2.2(b)), as the case may be, a Competitive Product of any Third Party achieves (x) [*] or (y) [*], it being understood that, unless uniQure expressly agrees or stipulates that such Default or CRE Default was the proximate cause of such eventuality, such question of proximate cause must be raised and determined in the same arbitration that determines such Default or CRE Default (except in the case of a Default of uniQure of its obligations under Section 2.6 (Exclusivity Covenant) where such proximate causation shall be presumed absent a specific determination to the contrary in such arbitration), then, without limiting its right to terminate this Agreement or to seek any other available remedies in connection with such Default or CRE Default, Partner may provide written notice to uniQure requiring the Parties to, in good faith, renegotiate any remaining Milestone Payments and the Royalty Rates as promptly as reasonably practicable after the provision of such notice, provided that such reduction [*].

(ii)

If uniQure does not dispute the applicability of this Section 13.2.2(c) (Payment Adjustment in Lieu of Termination for Third Party Competitive Product) or if it is otherwise agreed or determined to be applicable pursuant to, and in accordance with, clause (a) or clause (b) of Section 13.2.2 (Termination for Cause) or Article 14 (Dispute Resolution), but the Parties fail to agree upon the renegotiated Milestone Payments and Royalty Rates within [*] after delivery of such notice, then such dispute regarding the renegotiated Milestone Payments and Royalty Rates will be resolved in accordance with the specified expedited arbitration procedures set forth in Section 14.7 (Specified Expedited Arbitrations) (and, for the avoidance of doubt, the pre-arbitration negotiation procedure set forth in Section 14.1 (Pre-Arbitration Negotiation) will not apply).  After the resolution of the renegotiated Milestone Payments and Royalty Rates by the Parties’ agreement under this clause (c) or (where a dispute has been referred to specified expedited arbitration) by the arbitrator’s award in accordance with Section 14.7 (Specified Expedited Arbitrations), Partner may either: (A) accept such resolution (in which case such will be Partner’s sole and exclusive remedy and Partner will be deemed to have waived its rights to terminate this Agreement pursuant to clause (a) or clause (b) of Section 13.2.2 (Termination for Cause), as applicable, and to seek any other available remedies in connection with such Default or CRE Default); or (B) terminate this Agreement pursuant to, and in accordance with, clause (a) or clause (b) of Section 13.2.2 (Termination for Cause), as applicable, and seek any other available remedies in connection with such Default or CRE Default, subject to the terms of this Agreement.

(d)

Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary and without limiting uniQure’s other rights and remedies under the circumstances, uniQure does not have the right to terminate this Agreement under this Section 13.2.2 (Termination For Cause) due to (i) a breach by Partner of Section 12.1.2 (Disclosure); or (ii) any act or omission of a Subcontractor or Sublicensee, provided that Partner complies with its own obligations in Section 2.2.4 (Terms of Sublicensing and Subcontractor Agreements) or its termination obligation in the last sentence of Section 2.2.6 (Responsibility for Sublicensees and Subcontractors), unless and until the arbitration panel in an arbitration conducted in accordance with Article 14 (Dispute Resolution) rules that Partner has intentionally and materially breached such covenant by practicing an invention that infringes a claim in clause (i) of the definition of “Valid Claim” with respect to a uniQure Royalty Patent Right.

13.2.3

Termination for Patent Challenge.  uniQure may terminate this Agreement in its entirety by providing written notice of termination to Partner if Partner or its Affiliates or Sublicensees (individually or in association with any Person) contests or assists a Third Party in contesting the scope, validity, or enforceability of any

81 -


uniQure Royalty Patent Right, in each case, anywhere in the world in any court, tribunal, patent office, arbitration proceeding, or other proceeding, including the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the U.S. International Trade Commission (a “Patent Challenge”), subject to the cure provision below and except if such activities are [*]. In the event of such a Patent Challenge, uniQure will provide prompt written notice of such Patent Challenge to Partner, and uniQure may terminate this Agreement by providing written notice of such termination to Partner, solely if Partner or its applicable Affiliates or Sublicensees do not, within [*] of receipt of such notice, (i) withdraw such Patent Challenge, or (ii) with respect to any Patent Challenge by any Sublicensee of Partner, if Partner does not provide such Sublicensee notice of termination of the sublicense agreement with such Sublicensee before the end of such notice period. If uniQure believes based on the advice of counsel that termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 13.2.3 (Termination for Patent Challenge) is not an available remedy under Applicable Law, it shall notify Partner in writing.  If Partner responds within [*] that it disagrees with such belief, then uniQure may submit the issue to expedited arbitration in accordance with Section 14.6 (Expedited Arbitration).  If uniQure initiates such arbitration and prevails in such arbitration on the foregoing issue, then in lieu of such termination right, if one accrues under this Section 13.2.3 (Termination for Patent Challenge), uniQure may instead [*] by providing written notice of such election to Partner.  As used herein, a Patent Challenge includes: (a) filing an action under 28 U.S.C. §§ 2201-2202 seeking a declaration of invalidity or unenforceability of any such Patent Right; (b) filing, or joining in, a petition under 35 U.S.C. § 311 to institute inter partes review of any such Patent Right; (c) filing, or joining in, a petition under 35 U.S.C. § 321 to institute post-grant review of any such Patent Right or any portion thereof; (d) filing or commencing any opposition, nullity, or similar proceedings challenging the validity of any such Patent Right in any country or region; or (e) any foreign equivalent of clauses (a), (b), (c), or (d).

13.2.4

Failure to Commercialize.  If Partner and its Affiliates and Sublicensees do not conduct any material Commercialization activities with respect to any Licensed Products in any of the Major Countries for a continuous period of longer than [*] at any time following the First Major Regulatory Approval and such failure to conduct any material Commercialization activities during such period is not: [*], then uniQure may deliver written notice to Partner of its intent to terminate this Agreement in its entirety, effective [*] after Partner’s receipt of such notice, provided that, if Partner or any of its Affiliates or Sublicensees commences any material Commercialization activity with respect to any Licensed Product in any single Major Country during such [*] period, then this Agreement will not terminate upon the expiration of such [*] period.  By way of illustration only, if, following the First Major Regulatory Approval, Partner or any of its Affiliates or Sublicensees conducted material Commercialization activities in a Major Country (for example, [*]) in a [*] period, then this Section 13.2.4 (Failure to Commercialize) will not apply with respect to such [*] period even if Partner or any of its Affiliates or Sublicensees had not conducted material Commercialization activities in any other Major Country in the same [*] period.  For the avoidance of doubt, the existence of

82 -


this Section 13.2.4 (Failure to Commercialize) shall not be construed to limit Partner’s obligations under Section 6.3 (Commercialization Diligence) prior to termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 13.2.4 (Failure to Commercialize) or any other termination provision in this Agreement.

13.2.5

Full Force and Effect During Notice Period.  This Agreement will remain in full force and effect until the expiration of the applicable termination notice period.  For clarity, if Partner or any of its Affiliates or Sublicensees achieve any Milestone Events during the termination notice period, then the corresponding Milestone Payment is accrued and Partner will remain responsible for the payment of such Milestone Payment even if the due date of such Milestone Payment occur, after the effective date of the termination.

~ uniQure to Host Conference Call Today, June 24, 2020, at 5:30 p.m. EDT ~

Lexington, MA and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, June 24, 2020 — uniQure N.V. (NASDAQ: QURE), a leading gene therapy company advancing transformative therapies for patients with severe medical needs, today announced that uniQure and CSL Behring have entered into a licensing agreement providing CSL Behring exclusive global rights to etranacogene dezaparvovec, uniQure’s investigational gene therapy for patients with hemophilia B. Etranacogene dezaparvovec consists of an AAV5 viral vector carrying a gene cassette with the patent-protected Padua variant of Factor IX (FIX-Padua). Under the terms of the agreement, uniQure will receive a $450 million upfront cash payment and be eligible to receive up to $1.6 billion in payments based on regulatory and commercial milestones. uniQure will also be eligible to receive tiered double-digit royalties in a range of up to a low-twenties percent of on net sales of products arising from the collaboration based on sales thresholds.

The collaboration combines uniQure’s differentiated gene therapy candidate in hemophilia B and CSL Behring’s strong global reach and commercial infrastructure in hematology to accelerate access of etranacogene dezaparvovec to hemophilia B patients around the world.

“We are thrilled to enter into this commercialization and license agreement with CSL Behring, an ideal commercial partner with global reach and decades of expertise in hemophilia,” stated Matt Kapusta, chief executive officer of uniQure. “We believe that through this arrangement, we are ideally positioned to deliver our innovative gene therapy to the largest number of hemophilia B patients as quickly as possible.”

“The transaction represents a major milestone in the development of etranacogene dezaparvovec and, when closed, we expect that it will provide uniQure with significant financial resources to advance and expand our pipeline of gene therapy candidates, anchored by AMT-130 in Huntington’s disease, as well as to invest further in our leading manufacturing and technology platform,” he added.


As a CSL Limited (ASX:CSL;USOTC:CSLLY) company, CSL Behring is a global biotherapeutics leader delivering lifesaving medicines to patients with rare and serious diseases. A global leader in treating bleeding disorders, CSL Behring has been delivering innovations for the hemophilia patient community for more than 30 years. The company reported more than $1 billion in sales of hemophilia-related medicines in 2019.

“Our vision with hemophilia B patients is to offer transformational treatment paradigms that help free them from the lifelong burden of this disease,” said CSL’s CEO and Managing Director Paul Perreault. “With more than three decades of providing lifesaving innovations for the global bleeding disorders community, we are well positioned to maximize the potential benefit of this therapy. Upon approval, we believe this next-generation therapy will be highly complementary to our existing best-in-class hemophilia B product portfolio with an alternate best-in-class treatment option.”

Under the terms of the agreement, uniQure will be responsible for the completion of the HOPE-B pivotal study, manufacturing process validation, and the manufacturing supply of etranacogene dezaparvovec until such time that these capabilities are transferred to CSL Behring. Clinical development and regulatory activities performed by uniQure under the agreement will be reimbursed by CSL Behring. CSL Behring will be responsible for regulatory submissions and commercialization of etranacogene dezaparvovec.

The closing of the transaction is contingent on completion of review under antitrust laws in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom.

Accelerate Build-out of Innovative Gene Therapy Pipeline and Platform

uniQure expects that the agreement will provide significant additional capital to accelerate and expand its pipeline of innovative gene therapies, including advancing the Phase I/II study of AMT-130 in Huntington’s disease, initiating IND-enabling studies of AMT-150 in spinocerebellar ataxia type 3, and progressing current and additional candidates for central nervous system disorders and other genetic diseases. uniQure anticipates announcing early safety data from the Phase I/II study of AMT-130 in the second half of 2020 and initial efficacy data in 2021.

uniQure plans to continue to leverage its deep expertise with AAV5 to develop potentially best-in-class gene therapies. AAV5-based gene therapies have been demonstrated to be safe and well tolerated in a multitude of clinical trials, including uniQure trials conducted in hemophilia B and other indications. No patient treated in clinical trials with uniQure’s AAV5 gene therapies has experienced any cytotoxic T-cell-mediated immune response to the capsid. Additionally, preclinical and clinical data show that AAV5-based gene therapies may be viable treatments in patients with pre-existing antibodies to AAV5, thereby potentially increasing patient eligibility for treatment. uniQure also may seek to in-license or acquire additional product candidates that align with this research and development strategy.

In addition, uniQure plans to further strengthen its proprietary gene therapy platform by expanding its manufacturing capacity to support a broad pipeline, including product candidates for diseases with larger prevalence, as well as investing further in enabling technologies to improve the efficacy and safety of its gene therapies.

As part of uniQure’s effort to focus on those gene therapy programs that have the greatest potential to improve patients’ lives and generate long-term value for shareholders, uniQure plans to de-prioritize its research program of AMT-180 for patients with hemophilia A.

Moelis & Company acted as a financial advisor to uniQure in this transaction.

CSL Agrees to Acquire Late-Stage

Gene Therapy Candidate for Haemophilia B from uniQure

Graphic

CSL Limited (ASX:CSL; USOTC:CSLLY) today announced that CSL has agreed to acquire from uniQure exclusive global license rights to commercialise an adeno- associated virus (AAV) gene therapy program, AMT-061 (etranacogene dezaparvovec), for the treatment of haemophilia B. The AMT-061 program, currently in Phase 3 clinical trials, could be one of the first gene therapies to provide potentially long-term benefits to patients with haemophilia B.


One dose of AMT-061 has shown to increase Factor IX (FIX) plasma levels – the blood clotting protein lacking in people with haemophilia B – to a degree that reduces or eliminates the tendency for bleeding for many years. Should AMT-061 be successful, appropriate candidate haemophilia B patients would be able to have a one-time treatment to restore FIX activity to functional levels capable of eliminating the need for frequent and ongoing replacement therapies.

“Our vision for haemophilia B patients is to offer transformational treatment paradigms that help free them from the lifelong burden of this disease,” said CSL’s CEO and Managing Director Paul Perreault. “With more than three decades of providing lifesaving innovations for the global bleeding disorders community, we are well positioned to maximise the potential benefit of this therapy.”

Under the agreement with uniQure, upon closing the transaction CSL will have the exclusive global right to commercialise AMT-061. uniQure (NASDAQ: QURE), a leading gene therapy company, will receive an upfront cash payment of US$450 million followed by regulatory and commercial sales milestone payments and royalties. Under the terms of the agreement, uniQure will complete the Phase 3 trial and scale up manufacture for early commercial supply under an agreed plan with CSL.

The transaction is subject to customary regulatory clearances before closing.

Mr. Perreault added, “Upon approval, we believe this next-generation therapy would be highly complementary to our existing haemophilia B product portfolio. We hope that it provides patients with an alternate best-in-class treatment option, building on our legacy of delivering lifesaving innovations in hematology.”

This acquisition will also enhance CSL’s capabilities in its growing gene therapy portfolio. The company is currently developing a stem cell gene therapy (CSL200) for the treatment of sickle cell disease and has recently established an alliance with Seattle Children’s Research Institute to develop a stem cell gene therapy for primary immunodeficiency diseases.

About Etranacogene Dezaparvovec (AMT-061)

Etranacogene dezaparvovec, also known as AMT-061, consists of an AAV5 viral vector carrying a gene cassette with the patent-protected Padua variant of Factor IX (FIX- Padua). AAV5-based gene therapies have been demonstrated to be safe and well tolerated in many clinical trials, including four uniQure trials conducted in 25 patients in hemophilia B and other indications. No patient treated in clinical trials with uniQure’s AAV5-based gene therapies has experienced any cytotoxic T-cell-mediated immune response to the capsid. Additionally, preclinical and clinical data show that AAV5-based gene therapies may be clinically effective in patients with pre-existing antibodies


​ ​

to AAV5, thereby potentially increasing patient eligibility for treatment compared to other gene therapy product candidates.

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., – 23 June 2020 – Global biotherapeutics leader CSL Behring announced today that it has agreed to acquire exclusive global license rights to commercialize an adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapy program, AMT-061 (etranacogene dezaparvovec), for the treatment of hemophilia B from uniQure (NASDAQ: QURE), a leading gene therapy company. The AMT-061 program, currently in Phase 3 clinical trials, could be one of the first gene therapies to provide potentially long-term benefits to patients with hemophilia B.

One dose of AMT-061 has shown to increase Factor IX (FIX) plasma levels – the blood clotting protein lacking in people with hemophilia B – to a degree that reduces or eliminates the tendency for bleeding for many years. Should AMT-061 be successful, appropriate candidate hemophilia B patients would be able to have a one-time treatment to restore FIX activity to functional levels capable of eliminating the need for frequent and ongoing replacement therapies.

“Our vision with hemophilia B patients is to offer transformational treatment paradigms that help free them from the lifelong burden of this disease,” said CSL’s CEO and Managing Director Paul Perreault. “With more than three decades of providing lifesaving innovations for the global bleeding disorders community, we are well positioned to maximize the potential benefit of this therapy.”

Under the agreement with uniQure, upon closing the transaction CSL Behring will have the exclusive global right to commercialize AMT-061. uniQure will receive an upfront cash payment of US$450 million followed by regulatory and commercial sales milestone payments and royalties. Under the terms of the agreement, uniQure will complete the Phase 3 trial and scale up manufacture for early commercial supply under an agreed plan with CSL Behring. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory clearances before closing.

“We are thrilled to enter into this commercialization and license agreement with CSL Behring, an ideal commercial partner with global reach and decades of expertise in hemophilia,” stated Matt Kapusta, chief

executive officer of uniQure. “We believe that through this arrangement, we are ideally positioned to deliver our innovative gene therapy to the largest number of hemophilia B patients as quickly as possible. The transaction represents a major milestone in the development of etranacogene dezaparvovec and, when closed, we expect that it will provide uniQure with significant financial resources to advance and expand our pipeline of gene therapy candidates, anchored by AMT-130 in Huntington’s disease, as well as to invest further in our leading manufacturing and technology platform.”

In December 2019, uniQure announced that data from its Phase 2b dose-confirmation study of AMT-061 showed that all patients stabilized and sustained FIX activity at functionally high levels one year after a single dose – with increases in FIX activity of up to 50% of normal and a mean of 41%. This exceeds the levels considered sufficient to eliminate or significantly reduce the risk of bleeding events.

According to CSL Behring’s Executive Vice President and Head of Research and Development Bill Mezzanotte, “We are exceedingly encouraged by the data we’ve seen on AMT-061. Not only has the treatment option demonstrated robust clinically meaningful responses in FIX activity, but it has also exhibited excellent safety over multiple years of observation. Expanding our gene therapy portfolio to treat hemophilia B, a disease state well known to CSL Behring, exemplifies how we are strategically aligning our rare and serious disease focus and our targeted therapeutic area focus with our core scientific platforms to transform the lives of patients.”

This acquisition will also enhance CSL Behring’s capabilities in its growing gene therapy portfolio. The company is currently developing a stem cell gene therapy (CSL200) for the treatment of sickle cell disease and has recently established an alliance with Seattle Children’s Research Institute to develop a stem cell gene therapy for primary immunodeficiency diseases -- another rare disease area where CSL Behring has leading capabilities.

Perreault added, “Upon approval, this next-generation therapy would be highly complementary to our existing best-in-class hemophilia B product portfolio with an alternate best-in-class treatment option. With the license to AMT-061, we are building on our legacy of delivering lifesaving innovations in hematology where, today, we offer a market leading product for hemophilia B and we are a leader in therapies for treating hemophilia A, von Willebrand disease, thrombosis, and other life-threatening conditions.”

CSL Behring has put patients first by addressing the world’s most serious, complicated and rare diseases for over 100 years. The company is now bringing that same commitment to gene therapy; its mission is to address unmet patient needs and enable patients to get the very most out of life.

About Etranacogene Dezaparvovec (AMT-061)

Etranacogene dezaparvovec, also known as AMT-061, consists of an AAV5 viral vector carrying a gene cassette with the patent-protected Padua variant of Factor IX (FIX-Padua). AAV5-based gene therapies have been demonstrated to be safe and well tolerated in many clinical trials, including four uniQure trials conducted in 25 patients in hemophilia B and other indications. No patient treated in clinical trials with uniQure’s AAV5-based gene therapies has experienced any cytotoxic T-cell-mediated immune response to the capsid. Additionally, preclinical and clinical data show that AAV5-based gene therapies may be clinically effective in patients with pre-existing antibodies to AAV5, thereby potentially increasing patient eligibility for treatment compared to other gene therapy product candidates.
