(iv)Pfizer shall provide Sangamo with written notice of each executed sublicense agreement entered into pursuant to Section 2.1(b)(iii) within thirty (30) days after execution thereof, such notice to include the name of the Sublicensee and a description of the applicable Pfizer Product and sublicense scope, which shall be treated by Sangamo as Pfizer’s Confidential Information.  

(c)Retained Rights for Exclusive Licenses.  Notwithstanding the exclusive license granted by Sangamo to Pfizer under Section 2.1(a)(i), Sangamo retains the rights under the Licensed Technology to perform its obligations and to exercise its rights under this Agreement, whether directly or through one or more subcontractors.  In addition, subject to Section 2.5, Sangamo retains the exclusive right to practice and license the Licensed Technology, Sangamo Manufacturing Improvement Technology and Licensed Companion Diagnostic Technology outside the scope of the licenses granted to Pfizer under Section 2.1(a).

2.2Licenses to Sangamo.  

(a)License Grants.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Pfizer hereby grants to Sangamo and its Affiliates:

(i) a non-exclusive, fully paid, royalty-free, worldwide license, with the right to grant sublicenses only to its Affiliates and subcontractors, under all Know-How, Patent Rights and other intellectual property rights Controlled by Pfizer and its Affiliates as of the Effective Date or during the Term, solely to perform Sangamo’s and its Affiliates’ obligations under this Agreement; and

(ii)Sangamo shall provide Pfizer with written notice of each executed sublicense agreement entered into pursuant to Section 2.2(b)(i) within thirty (30) days after execution thereof, such notice to include the name of the Sublicensee and a description of the applicable Sangamo Product and sublicense scope, which shall be treated by Pfizer as Sangamo’s Confidential Information.

(i)If such transaction results in a Change of Control of such Party, then such new Affiliate shall have the right to continue such Competing Program and such continuation shall not constitute a breach by such Party of its exclusivity obligation set forth in Section 2.5(a), provided that such new Affiliate conducts such Competing Program independently of the activities under this Agreement and does not use any Licensed Technology or the Confidential Information of the other Party in the conduct of such Competing Program.

(ii)If such transaction does not result in a Change of Control of such Party, then such Party and its new Affiliate shall have [*] months from the closing date of such transaction to wind down or divest such Competing Program, and its new Affiliate’s conduct of such Competing Program during such [*] month period shall not constitute a breach by such Party of its exclusivity obligations set forth in Section 2.5(a), provided that such new Affiliate conducts such Competing Program during such [*] month period independently of the activities under this Agreement and does not use any Licensed Technology or the Confidential Information of the other Party in the conduct of such Competing Program.

License for which Pfizer agrees to reimburse Sangamo for payments thereunder pursuant to Section 2.6(a), and each Exclusive Upstream License, will be an “Upstream License”.

(a)Non-Exclusive Upstream Licenses.  If within [*] days after the receipt of such notice regarding a Non-Exclusive Upstream License, Pfizer agrees in writing to reimburse Sangamo for all payments due under such license as described above in this Section 2.6, then such intellectual property rights shall be included in the Licensed Technology and sublicensed to Pfizer under the terms and conditions of this Agreement (which sublicense shall be subject and subordinate to the terms and conditions of the Upstream License), and the agreement pursuant to which Sangamo obtained Control of such intellectual property rights shall become an Upstream License under this Agreement.  If Pfizer does not agree in writing within such [*] days to reimburse Sangamo for all such payments, then such intellectual property rights shall be deemed “Excluded Upstream IP” and shall be excluded from the Licensed Technology, and the agreement pursuant to which Sangamo obtains Control of such intellectual property rights shall not be included in the Upstream Licenses.

Milestone Event

Milestone Payment for SB-525

Milestone Payment for Products other than SB-525

(i)For milestone #7, “[*]” means that, at the time in question, the applicable Product [*]; such milestone shall be paid [*].  For clarity, [*] the applicable Product [*]  For example, [*].  

(ii)The clinical Milestone Events set forth above (i.e., Milestone Events #[*]) shall be deemed achieved and the corresponding Milestone Payments payable, if not already achieved and paid, upon the achievement of any Milestone Event with a higher number.  Milestone Events for [*] (i.e., Milestone Events #[*]) shall be deemed achieved and the corresponding milestone payments payable, if not already achieved and paid, upon the achievement of the [*] in the corresponding country or territory (i.e., milestone event #[*], as applicable).  Without limiting the foregoing, the Milestone Event #[*] shall be paid no later than the due date for the Milestone Event #[*].  

(iii) Each of the Milestone Payments #[*] set forth above shall be payable either (A) [*] or (B) [*], except that Milestone Payment #[*], and Milestone Payment #[*].  If the [*], and if [*] achieves a Milestone Event that [*] and for which [*], then [*] on account of the achievement of such Milestone Event [*].

9.5Royalty Payments.

(a)Royalty Rates.  Subject to the remainder of this Section 9.5, Pfizer shall pay Sangamo non-refundable, non-creditable (subject to any refund of overpaid amounts pursuant to Section 9.9) royalties on a tiered marginal royalty rate basis as set forth below (the “Marginal Royalty Rates”) based on the annual aggregate Territory-wide Net Sales of each Product, on a Product-by-Product basis, during each Pfizer Year of the applicable Royalty Term for each Product.

For the Portion of Annual Net Sales of each Product in the Territory

Marginal
Royalty Rate

Less than or equal to:                                                                   $[*]

[*]%

Greater than:                                                                                $[*]
but less than or equal to:                                                              $[*]

[*]%

Greater than                                                                                 $[*]

[*]%

Each Marginal Royalty Rate set forth in the table above will apply only to that portion of the Net Sales of a given Product in the Territory during a given Pfizer Year that falls within the indicated range. An example calculation of royalties under this Section 9.5(a) is set forth below.

By way of example only, if (i) Pfizer, its Affiliates or its Sublicensees sell two Products in the Territory during a given Pfizer Year, (ii) Net Sales of the first Product in the Territory during such Pfizer Year are $[*] and (iii) Net Sales of the second Product in the Territory during such Pfizer Year are $[*], then the royalties payable by Pfizer under this Section 9.5(a) during such Pfizer Year would be calculated as follows:

Royalty for first Product
[*]

 

Royalty for second Product
[*]

 

Total royalty payable for applicable Pfizer Year
[*]

 

(b)Royalty Term.  Pfizer’s royalty payment obligations under Section 9.5(a) shall expire, on a Product-by-Product and country-by-country basis, upon the latest of: (i) the expiration of the period during which the Manufacture, approved use, sale, offer for sale or

49

[*] = Certain confidential information contained in this document, marked by brackets, has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

importation of such Product in such country would absent a license or ownership interest, infringe a Valid Claim in the Licensed Technology in such country (considering Valid Claims of pending patent applications to be issued with the then-pending claims); (ii) the expiration of all Regulatory Exclusivity for such Product in such country; and (iii) [*] years after the First Commercial Sale of such Product in any country (the “Royalty Term”).  For the avoidance of doubt, the Royalty Term for a given Product in a given country in the Territory (A) will not begin until the First Commercial Sale of such Product in such country and (B) if not previously expired, will expire immediately upon termination of this Agreement.

(c)Fully Paid-Up, Royalty Free License. Following expiration of the Royalty Term for any Product in a given country, no further royalties will be payable in respect of sales of such Product in such country and, thereafter the license granted to Pfizer under Section 2.1(a)(i) with respect to such Product in such country will automatically become fully paid-up, perpetual, irrevocable and royalty-free.

(d)Royalty Reductions. The following adjustments will be made, on a Product-by-Product and country-by-country basis, to the royalties payable pursuant to Section 9.5(a).

(i)Biosimilar Entry.  For any Pfizer Quarter in the applicable Royalty Term for a Product in a country in the Territory during which (1) a Biosimilar Product with respect to such Product is being sold in such country; and (2) the unit volume of such Biosimilar Product sold in such country in such Pfizer Quarter exceeds [*] of the combined unit volume of such Product and such Biosimilar Product sold in such country in such Pfizer Quarter, subject to Section 9.5(d)(vi), the royalties payable on Net Sales of such Product in such country in such Pfizer Quarter would be reduced by [*] of the amounts of royalties otherwise payable on such Net Sales pursuant to Section 9.5(a) for the remainder of the applicable Royalty Term, such reduction to be prorated appropriately in aggregate for the then-current Pfizer Quarter.  The unit volume of the Product and Biosimilar Product shall be calculated using a mutually acceptable method and using market share data provided by a reputable and mutually agreed upon provider, such as QuintilesIMS Health.

(ii)Third Party Patents.  If Pfizer obtains a license from a Third Party to any Patent Right (other than a Specified Patent) owned by such Third Party in order to Manufacture or Commercialize any Product in a country in the Territory without infringing such Patent Right, whether directly or through any Pfizer Affiliate or Sublicensee, then, subject to Section 9.5(d)(vi), Pfizer shall have the right to deduct, from the royalty payment that would otherwise have been due pursuant to Section 9.5(a) with respect to Net Sales of such Product in such country in a particular Pfizer Quarter, an amount equal to [*] of the royalties paid by Pfizer to such Third Party pursuant to such license on account of the sale of such Product in such country during such Pfizer Quarter, such reduction to continue with any amounts not deducted carried over to future Pfizer Quarters until all such amounts have been expended.  

(iii)Expiry of Certain Valid Claim Coverage.  If with respect to any particular Product in any particular country in the Territory, the Royalty Term for

50

[*] = Certain confidential information contained in this document, marked by brackets, has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

such Product in such country extends beyond the date on which there is no Valid Claim Covering such Product with respect to its sale, offer for sale or importation in such country, then, subject to Section 9.5(d)(vi), the royalties payable on Net Sales of such Product in such country shall be reduced by [*] for each Pfizer Quarter for the remainder of the applicable Royalty Term.

(iv)No Adjustment for Certain Sangamo Third Party Agreements. Sangamo will be solely responsible for (i) all obligations (including any royalty or other obligations that relate to the Licensed Technology) under the Current Licenses and under the Exclusive Upstream Licenses and (ii) all payments to inventors of Licensed Technology, including payments under inventorship compensation Laws and (iii) all obligations, including but not limited to financial obligations, under any agreement between Sangamo and [*], which is identified in Exhibit I, related to [*].

(v)Existing Pfizer Third Party Agreements. Pfizer will be solely responsible for all obligations (including royalty obligations) that relate to Products under its agreements with Third Parties that are in effect on or prior to the Effective Date.

(vi)Notwithstanding the foregoing, during any Pfizer Quarter in the Royalty Term for a Product in a country in the Territory, the operation of Sections 9.5(d)(i), (ii) or (iii) individually or in combination shall not reduce by more than [*] the royalties that would otherwise have been due under Section 9.5(a) with respect to Net Sales of such Product in such country during such Pfizer Quarter.  

(e)Reports and Payment.  

(i)Cumulative Royalties. The obligation to pay royalties under this Agreement will be imposed only once with respect to any sale of any Product.

(ii)Royalty Statements and Payments. Within [*] days after the end of each Pfizer Quarter during the Royalty Term, Pfizer shall provide Sangamo with a report that contains the following information for the applicable Pfizer Quarter, on a Product-by-Product and country-by-country basis: (1) the amount of gross sales of each Product, (2) an itemized calculation of Net Sales showing deductions provided for in the definition of “Net Sales,” (3) a calculation of the royalty due on such sales, including any reduction made in accordance with Section 9.5(d), and (4) the exchange rate for such country.  No such reports will be due for any Product (A) before the First Commercial Sale of such Product or (B) after the Royalty Term for such Product has expired in all countries in the Territory.  Pfizer shall pay in Dollars all royalty payments due to Sangamo for such Pfizer Quarter concurrently with the delivery of the royalty report or within [*] days after the end of each Pfizer Quarter, whichever is sooner, provided that to the extent any royalties are payable by Pfizer hereunder on Net Sales of a Product in a country [*] that is [*], such royalties payable by Pfizer shall be [*] and [*].

9.6Currency; Late Payments.  All amounts payable and calculations under this Agreement will be in Dollars. As applicable, Net Sales and any royalty deductions in local

9.7Invoicing; Method of Payment.  Invoices must include the appropriate Pfizer Purchase Order (PO) number (provided that such PO number is provided to Sangamo by Pfizer within [*] days after the Effective Date or within [*] days before any payment is due), reference to the Agreement and type of payment due, itemized description of work completed (if applicable), amount owed and name and address to which the payment is to be sent.  All invoices shall be clearly marked “INVOICE” and delivered by email to apinvoices@pfizer.com.  Should Pfizer dispute in good faith the nature or basis of any charges contained in any invoice submitted by Sangamo hereunder, Pfizer shall promptly provide written notice to Sangamo setting forth the reason for the dispute, which the Parties shall attempt to resolve in good faith in accordance with Section 16.6.  Payment by Pfizer shall not result in a waiver of any of its rights under this Agreement. Each payment hereunder shall be made by electronic transfer in immediately available funds via either back wire transfer, an ACH (automated clearing house) mechanism or any other means of electronic funds transfer, at Pfizer’s election, to the bank account as set forth below or as designated by Sangamo in writing to Pfizer at least [*] days before the payment is due:

(a)VAT.  It is understood and agreed between the Parties that any payments made under this Agreement are exclusive of any value added or similar tax (VAT), which shall be added thereon as applicable.  Where VAT is properly added to a payment made under this Agreement, the Party making the payment will pay the amount of VAT only on receipt of a valid tax invoice issued in accordance with the laws and regulations of the country in which the VAT tax is chargeable.

(b)Withholding Taxes.  Subject to Section 9.8(d) below, in the event any payments made pursuant to this Agreement become subject to withholding taxes under the laws or regulation of any jurisdiction, the Party making such payment shall deduct and withhold the amount of such taxes for the account of the payee to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations and such amounts payable to the payee shall be reduced by the amount of taxes deducted and withheld. Any such withholding taxes required under applicable laws or regulations to be paid or withheld shall be an expense of, and borne solely by, the payee.

[*] = Certain confidential information contained in this document, marked by brackets, has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

(c)Tax Cooperation.  To the extent that the Party making a payment is required to deduct and withhold taxes on any payments under this Agreement, the Party making such payment shall pay the amounts of such taxes to the proper Governmental Authority in a timely manner and promptly transmit to the payee an official tax certificate or other evidence of such withholding sufficient to enable the payee to claim such payments of taxes.  The payee shall provide any tax forms to the Party making such payment that may be reasonably necessary in order for such Party not to withhold tax or to withhold tax at a reduced rate under an applicable bilateral income tax treaty.  The payee shall use reasonable efforts to provide any such tax forms to the Party making the payment at least [*] days prior to the due date for any payments for which the payee desires that the Party making the payment apply a reduced withholding rate.  Each Party shall provide the other with reasonable assistance to enable the recovery, as permitted by Law, of withholding taxes, VAT, or similar obligations resulting from payments made under this Agreement, such recovery to be for the benefit of the Party bearing such withholding tax or VAT.

(d) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, (i) if an action (including but not limited to any assignment (including pursuant to Section 16.2), any direction by Pfizer to Sangamo to grant a license or sublicense to any Affiliate of Pfizer pursuant to Section 2.7 (or otherwise), any sublicense of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, any transfer of payment obligations hereunder, or any failure to comply with applicable Laws or filing or record retention requirements) by a Party leads to the imposition of  withholding tax liability or VAT on the other Party that would not have been imposed in the absence of such action or in an increase in such liability above the liability that would have been imposed in the absence of such action, then the sum payable by that Party (in respect of which such deduction or withholding is required to be made) shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that the other Party receives a sum equal to the sum which it would have received had no such action occurred, (ii) otherwise, the sum payable by that Party (in respect of which such deduction or withholding is required to be made) shall be made to the other Party after deduction of the amount required to be so deducted or withheld, which deducted or withheld amount shall be remitted in accordance with applicable law.      

9.9Financial Records and Audit.  Each Party shall maintain complete and accurate records in sufficient detail to permit the other Party to confirm the accuracy of the amount of Development and Manufacture costs to be reimbursed, royalty payments and other amounts payable under this Agreement.  Upon reasonable prior notice, such records shall be open during regular business hours for a period of [*] years from the creation of individual records for examination by an independent certified public accountant selected by the auditing Party and reasonably acceptable to the audited Party for the sole purpose of verifying for the auditing Party the accuracy of the financial reports furnished by the audited Party pursuant to this Agreement or of any payments made, or required to be made, by or to the audited Party pursuant to this Agreement.  Such audits may occur no more often than [*].  Such auditor shall not disclose the audited Party’s Confidential Information to the auditing Party, except to the extent such disclosure is necessary to verify the accuracy of the financial reports furnished by the audited Party or the amount of payments to or by the audited Party under this Agreement. Any amounts shown to be owed but unpaid, or overpaid and in need of refund, shall be paid or refunded (as the case may be) within [*] days after the accountant’s report, plus interest (as set forth in Section 9.6) from the original due date (unless challenged in good faith by the audited Party).  The auditing Party shall bear the full cost of such audit unless such audit reveals an overpayment to, or an underpayment

by, the audited Party that resulted from a discrepancy in the financial report provided by the audited Party for the audited period, which underpayment or overpayment is more than [*] of the amount set forth in such report, in which case the audited Party shall reimburse the auditing Party for the costs for such audit.

9.10Confidentiality. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary all reports and financial information of Pfizer, its Affiliates or its Sublicensees which are provided to or subject to review by Sangamo under this Article 9 will be deemed to be Pfizer’s Confidential Information and subject to the provisions of Article 11.

9.11No Guarantee of Success. Pfizer and Sangamo acknowledge and agree that payments to Sangamo pursuant to Section 9.4(a) and Section 9.5(a): (a) have been included in this Agreement on the basis that they are only payable or otherwise relevant if the applicable Milestone Event is achieved or Net Sales are made; (b) are solely intended to allocate amounts that may be achieved upon successful Development or Commercialization of such Product as applicable, between Pfizer (who will receive all Product sales revenues) and Sangamo; and (c) are not intended to be used and will not be used as a measure of damages if this Agreement is terminated for any reason, including pursuant to Pfizer’s right to terminate for convenience, before any such success is achieved and such amounts become due; and (d) will only be triggered in accordance with the terms and conditions of such provisions.  Pfizer and Sangamo further acknowledge and agree that nothing in this Agreement, or in any document or presentation provided by Pfizer to Sangamo or Sangamo to Pfizer prior to the Effective Date will be construed as representing any estimate or projection of (i) the successful Development or Commercialization of any Product under this Agreement, (ii) the number of Products that will or may be successfully Developed or Commercialized under this Agreement, (iii) anticipated sales or the actual value of any Products that may be successfully Developed or Commercialized under this Agreement or (iv) the damages, if any, that may be payable if this Agreement is terminated for any reason.  Neither Pfizer nor Sangamo makes any representation, warranty or covenant, either express or implied, that (A) it will successfully Develop, Manufacture, Commercialize or continue to Develop, Manufacture or Commercialize any Product in any country, (B) if Commercialized, that any Product will achieve any particular sales level, whether in any individual country or cumulatively throughout the Territory or (C) Pfizer will devote, or cause to be devoted, any level of diligence or resources to Developing or Commercializing any Product in any country, or in the Territory in general, other than is expressly required by the Pfizer Diligence Obligations or the other provisions of this Agreement.

Sangamo Therapeutics and PFIZER Announce collaboration for hemophilia a gene therapy

 

Collaboration combines Pfizer’s heritage in Rare Disease, capabilities in gene therapy, and expertise in hemophilia with Sangamo’s deep knowledge in genomic therapies

 

Richmond, Calif., May 10, 2017 – Sangamo Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGMO) and Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) today announced an exclusive, global collaboration and license agreement for the development and commercialization of gene therapy programs for Hemophilia A, including SB-525, one of Sangamo’s four lead product candidates, which Sangamo expects will enter the clinic this quarter.

 

“Sangamo brings deep scientific and technical expertise across multiple genomic platforms, and we look forward to working together to advance this potentially transformative treatment for patients living with Hemophilia A,” said Mikael Dolsten, MD, PhD, President of Worldwide Research and Development at Pfizer. “Pfizer has made significant investments in gene therapy over the last few years and we are building an industry-leading expertise in recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) vector design and manufacturing. We believe SB-525 has the potential to be a best-in-class therapy that may provide patients with stable and durable levels of Factor VIII protein with a single administration treatment.”

 

“With a long-standing heritage in rare disease, including hemophilia, Pfizer is an ideal partner for our Hemophilia A program,” said Dr. Sandy Macrae, Sangamo’s Chief Executive Officer. “We believe Pfizer’s end-to-end gene therapy capabilities will enable comprehensive development and commercialization of SB-525, which could potentially benefit Hemophilia A patients around the world. This collaboration also marks an important milestone for Sangamo as we continue to make progress in the translation of our ground-breaking research into new genomic therapies to treat serious, genetically tractable diseases.”

 

Under the terms of the collaboration agreement, Sangamo will receive a $70 million upfront payment from Pfizer. Sangamo will be responsible for conducting the SB-525 Phase 1/2 clinical study and certain manufacturing activities. Pfizer will be operationally and financially responsible for all subsequent research, development, manufacturing and commercialization activities for SB-525 and additional products, if any. Sangamo is eligible to receive potential milestone payments of up to $475 million, including up to $300 million for the development and commercialization of SB-525 and up to $175 million for additional Hemophilia A gene therapy product candidates that may be developed under the collaboration. Sangamo will also receive tiered double-digit royalties on net sales. Additionally, Sangamo will be collaborating with Pfizer on manufacturing and technical operations utilizing viral delivery vectors.

Gene therapy is a potentially transformational technology for patients, focused on highly specialized, one-time, treatments that address the root cause of diseases caused by genetic mutation. The technology involves introducing genetic material into the body to deliver a correct copy of a gene to a patient’s cells to compensate for a defective one. The genetic material can be delivered to the cells by a variety of means, most frequently using a viral vector such as rAAV. There have been no gene therapy products approved in the U.S. to date.

 

Hemophilia A is a rare blood disorder caused by a genetic mutation resulting in insufficient activity of Factor VIII, a blood clotting protein the body uses to stop bleeding. There are approximately 16,000 patients in the U.S. and more than 150,000 worldwide with Hemophilia A. SB-525 is comprised of a rAAV vector carrying a Factor VIII gene construct driven by a proprietary, synthetic, liver-specific promoter. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cleared initiation of human clinical trials for SB-525, which also has been granted orphan drug designation. Sangamo is on track this quarter to start a Phase 1/2 clinical trial to evaluate safety and to measure blood levels of Factor VIII protein and other efficacy endpoints.

 

Conference Call

Sangamo will host a conference call today, May 10, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. ET, which will be open to the public, to discuss the details of the collaboration and the Company’s first quarter business and financial results. The call will also be webcast live and can be accessed via a link the Sangamo Therapeutics website in the Investors and Media section under Events and Presentations. A replay of the webcast will also be available for one week after the call.

 

The conference call dial-in numbers are (877) 377-7553 for domestic callers and (678) 894-3968 for international callers. The conference ID number for the call is 15225000. For those unable to listen in at the designated time, a conference call replay will be available for one week following the conference call, from approximately 8:00 p.m. ET on May 10, 2017 to 11:59 p.m. ET on May 17, 2017. The conference call replay numbers for domestic and international callers are (855) 859-2056 and (404) 537-3406, respectively. The conference ID number for the replay is 15225000.
