Item 14. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.

 

We are incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any persons who are, or are threatened to be made, parties to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of such corporation), by reason of the fact that such person was an officer, director, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such person as an officer, director, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding, provided that such person acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation’s best interests and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was illegal. A Delaware corporation may indemnify any persons who are, or are threatened to be made, a party to any threatened, pending or completed action or suit by or in the right of the corporation by reason of the fact that such person was a director, officer, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit provided such person acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation’s best interests except that no indemnification is permitted without judicial approval if the officer or director is adjudged to be liable to the corporation. Where an officer or director is successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action referred to above, the corporation must indemnify him or her against the expenses that such officer or director has actually and reasonably incurred. Our third amended and restated certificate of incorporation and our amended and restated bylaws, each of which will become effective upon the closing of this offering, provide for the indemnification of our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted under the Delaware General Corporation Law.

 

II-1


Section 102(b)(7) of the Delaware General Corporation Law permits a corporation to provide in its certificate of incorporation that a director of the corporation shall not be personally liable to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duties as a director, except for liability for any:

 

   

transaction from which the director derives an improper personal benefit;

 

   

act or omission not in good faith or that involves intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;

 

   

unlawful payment of dividends or redemption of shares; or

 

   

breach of a director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders.

 

Our third amended and restated certificate of incorporation and amended and restated bylaws include such a provision. Expenses incurred by any officer or director in defending any such action, suit or proceeding in advance of its final disposition shall be paid by us upon delivery to us of an undertaking, by or on behalf of such director or officer, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such director or officer is not entitled to be indemnified by us.

 

Section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides, among other things, that a director who willfully or negligently approves of an unlawful payment of dividends or an unlawful stock purchase or redemption may be held liable for such actions. A director who was either absent when the unlawful actions were approved, or dissented at the time, may avoid liability by causing his or her dissent to such actions to be entered in the books containing minutes of the meetings of the board of directors at the time such action occurred or immediately after such absent director receives notice of the unlawful acts.

 

As permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, we have entered into indemnity agreements with each of our directors and officers that require us to indemnify such persons against any and all expenses (including attorneys’ fees), witness fees, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts incurred (including expenses of a derivative action) in connection with any action, suit or proceeding or alternative dispute resolution mechanism, inquiry hearing or investigation, whether threatened, pending or completed, to which any such person may be made a party by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director, an officer or an employee of Jazz Pharmaceuticals or any of its affiliated enterprises, provided that such person’s conduct did not constitute a breach of his or her duty of loyalty to us or our stockholders, and was not an act or omission not in good faith or which involved intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of laws. The indemnity agreements also set forth certain procedures that will apply in the event of a claim for indemnification thereunder.

 

At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving any of our directors or officers as to which indemnification is required or permitted, and we are not aware of any threatened litigation or proceeding that may result in a claim for indemnification.

 

We have an insurance policy covering our officers and directors with respect to certain liabilities, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act or otherwise. Messrs. Clammer, Michelson and Momtazee are further insured by liability insurance that has been purchased by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. on their behalf for any excess liabilities that are not covered by our liability insurance. Mr. Colella is insured by liability insurance purchased on his behalf by, and indemnified pursuant to the governing agreements of, Versant Ventures for his service on our board of directors.

 

We plan to enter into an underwriting agreement that provides that the underwriters are obligated, under some circumstances, to indemnify our directors, officers and controlling persons against specified liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.

Item 17. Undertakings.

 

The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes to provide to the underwriters at the closing specified in the underwriting agreement, certificates in such denominations and registered in such names as required by the underwriters to permit prompt delivery to each purchaser.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred

 

II-8


or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

 

The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that:

 

  (1)   For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this Registration Statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this Registration Statement as of the time it was declared effective.

 

  (2)   For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

3.4 Notes on Milestone Payments.

(a) Each Milestone Payment shall be made only once regardless of how many times such Milestones are achieved for each Product, except for Pre-Commercial Milestone number 5 and Commercial Milestone number 2 above which may be paid more than once (but only once for each [ * ]). No payment shall be owed for a Milestone which is not reached (except that, upon achievement of a Milestone for a particular Product, any previous Milestone for that Product for which payment would have been due hereunder but was not yet made shall be deemed achieved and payment therefore shall be made), if such a payment was due under the terms hereof.

(b) In the event that more than one Milestone is achieved with respect to the same Product at one time, then all applicable payments under Section 3.3 shall be made.

(c) For purposes of Milestone payments, an “indication” means [ * ].

(d) For purposes of [ * ] in the event federal governmental pricing approval is required to commercialize the Product in the U.S., then the Milestone Payment for [ * ] shall not become due until the earlier of (i) [ * ] or (ii) [ * ] of Marketing Approval.

3.5 Additional Consideration Payments. As further consideration for the assignment and transfer of the Purchased Assets pursuant to Section 2.1, Jazz Pharmaceuticals will pay GGL and SB the following percentage (each an “Additional Consideration Payment”) on Net Sales of Product in the Territory in each calendar year:

(a) with respect to Net Sales of Product (other than Combination Products) in countries of the Territory as to which payments are due, in each calendar year:

(i) [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of annual Net Sales of Product up to and including [ * ] U.S. Dollars (U.S. $[ * ]) in such calendar year; and

(ii) [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of annual Net Sales of Product in excess of [ * ] U.S. Dollars (U.S. $[ * ]) in such calendar year.

(b) After calculating the total Additional Consideration Payments due under Section 3.5(a) for all Net Sales in the Territory, Jazz Pharmaceuticals shall determine the

[ * ] = 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 406 OF THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED.


amount of Net Sales in the U.S. and shall pay SB [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) or [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of such Net Sales in the U.S., as appropriate, at the Additional Consideration Payment level required by Section 3.5(a). After calculating the total Additional Consideration Payments due under Section 3.5(a) for all Net Sales in the Territory, Jazz Pharmaceuticals shall determine the amount of Net Sales in Europe and the ROW and shall pay GGL [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) or [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of such Net Sales in Europe and the ROW, as appropriate, at the Additional Consideration Payment level required by Section 3.5(a). In no event will any calculations under this paragraph result in a larger payment by Jazz Pharmaceuticals than would have been made had the entire payment been made to one entity. Jazz Pharmaceuticals will use its Diligent Efforts to divide the Additional Consideration Payments as described above. If GSK believes that the division of the payment was not done correctly, GSK will, itself, reapportion the payments between the GSK entities and will not have any recourse to Jazz Pharmaceuticals or request any audits as to the allocation between the GSK entities, and Jazz Pharmaceuticals will have no liability to GSK with respect to any division of the payments as described above.

(c) With respect to Net Sales of Combination Products in the Territory in each reporting period in each country:

(i) if and to the extent all therapeutically active agents comprising the Combination Product are marketed and sold separately in such country in commercially relevant quantities in such Payment Period (as defined in Section 4.1) and the Gross Selling Price for each agent can be separately determined for such Payment Period, Net Sales of each Combination Product for determining the Additional Consideration Payment payable with respect to such Combination Product for such country shall be calculated by multiplying the Net Sales of the Combination Product by A divided by the sum of A plus B (A/(A+B)), in which A is the Gross Selling Price of the single therapeutically active agent Product contained in the Combination Product sold in such country during such Payment Period and B is the Gross Selling Price of the other single therapeutically active agent(s) contained in the Combination Product sold in such country during such Payment Period. All Gross Selling Prices of the therapeutically active ingredients in the Combination Product shall be calculated as the average Gross Selling Price of the therapeutically active ingredients in such Combination Products during the applicable Payment Period for which the Net Sales are being calculated.

(ii) In the event that (a) separate sales, in commercially relevant quantities, in a particular country of the other therapeutically active agent (not the Product) comprising a single compound as a therapeutically active ingredient are made during the Payment Period in which the sale was made or if the Gross Selling Price for such other therapeutically active agent (not the Product) can be determined for a Payment Period, but (b) there are no such separate sales of the Product as the sole therapeutically active agent or such separate sales of the Product cannot be determined for such Payment Period, then the Net Sales of the Combination Product in such country for determining the Additional Consideration Payment payable with respect to such Combination Product for such country for such period shall be calculated by multiplying Net Sales of such Combination Product in such country by the number one (1) minus the result of

[ * ] = 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 406 OF THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED.


dividing X over Y (1—(X/Y)), in which X is the Gross Selling Price of the therapeutically active ingredient that is not a Product sold separately in commercially reasonable quantities during the Payment Period in question and Y is the Gross Selling Price of the Combination Product sold in the Payment Period in question in such country.

(iii) If neither of the single therapeutically active agent components of the Combination Product is sold separately in commercially relevant quantities in a country during a particular Payment Period, then the Additional Consideration Payment payable on such Combination Product in such country for such period will be [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of the Additional Consideration Payment that would be due on a Product that is not a Combination Product.

(d) Any Additional Consideration Payment due on Combination Products shall be paid to SB for Net Sales of Combination Products in the U.S. and to GGL for Net Sales of Combination Products in the ROW. After determining the total Additional Consideration Payments due on Combination Products in accordance with Section 3.5(c) above, Jazz Pharmaceuticals shall determine the Additional Consideration Payments due on Net Sales in the U.S. and in ROW, respectively, and shall pay such amounts to SB and GGL, respectively.

3.6 Starting Date of Additional Consideration Payment Obligations. The obligation of Jazz Pharmaceuticals to pay Additional Consideration Payments to GGL and SB at the rates specified in Section 3.5 will become effective on a country by country basis on the date of the First Commercial Sale of a Product in such country.

3.7 Termination of Additional Consideration Payment Obligations. Additional Consideration Payments will be payable on Net Sales of Products in the U.S. until the expiration of the [ * ]. Additional Consideration Payments will be payable on Net Sales of Products in all countries of Europe until the expiration of the [ * ]. Additional Consideration Payments will be payable on Net Sales of Products in all countries in the ROW until the expiration of the [ * ]. Additional Consideration on Net Sales of Products [ * ] is being paid in this manner as an administrative convenience to the Parties as a result of the difficulty in allocating value for each of the Patents [ * ].

3.8 Transfer and Other Taxes. Jazz Pharmaceuticals will be responsible for and will pay all foreign, federal, state and local taxes payable in connection with the acquisition and transfer of the Purchased Assets to Jazz Pharmaceuticals by GSK. GSK will be responsible for and will pay all foreign, federal, state and local taxes payable on any income or gain resulting from the sale of the Purchased Assets to Jazz Pharmaceuticals. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Jazz Pharmaceuticals shall not be required to pay (i) any VAT in connection with the transfer of the Purchased Assets, or (ii) any tax as a result of the separate payment to SB pursuant to Sections 3.3 or 3.5 that it would not have been required to pay if making only one payment to GGL. In the event that Jazz Pharmaceuticals is required to withhold and remit any tax to the revenue authorities in any country in the Territory regarding the Purchase Price, any Milestone payment or any Additional Consideration Payments payable to GGL or SB due to the laws of such country, such amount shall be withheld by Jazz Pharmaceuticals, and Jazz Pharmaceuticals shall notify GSK and promptly furnish GSK with copies of any documentation evidencing such withholding.

ARTICLE 4—MANNER OF PAYMENTS; REPORTS; DILIGENCE

4.1 Manner of Additional Consideration Payments.

(a) Jazz Pharmaceuticals will deliver to GSK within sixty (60) days following the end of each “Payment Period”, meaning a calendar quarter ending on March 31st, June 30th, September 30th or December 31st, the Additional Consideration Payment Statements (as defined in Section 4.2), along with Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ payments to GGL and SB of any Additional Consideration Payment due and payable to GGL and SB for such Payment Period.

(b) Each Additional Consideration Payment will be computed and paid in U.S. Dollars. Monetary conversion calculations from the currency of a foreign country in which a Product is sold into U.S. Dollars will be made on a quarterly basis on the last day of each applicable calendar quarter using the exchange rate reported on the last Business Day of such calendar quarter in the Wall Street Journal, eastern edition.

(c) Whenever any Additional Consideration Payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment will be made on the immediately succeeding Business Day.

(d) In the event that any payment due hereunder is not made when due, the payment shall accrue interest from that date due at the rate of [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) per month, or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less, and shall be calculated based on the number of days that the payment is delinquent. The payment of such interest shall not limit GSK from exercising any other rights it may have as a consequence of the lateness of any payment.

4.2 Additional Consideration Payment Statements. Each Additional Consideration Payment required hereunder will be accompanied by a report (“Additional Consideration Payment Statement”) for the preceding Payment Period containing the following information:

(a) itemized accounting of the total Net Sales for Product during the applicable Payment Period in each country of sale in sufficient detail to permit confirmation of the accuracy of the Additional Consideration Payment;

(b) adjustments and calculation of Net Sales for the applicable Payment Period in each country of sale; and

(c) total Net Sales in U.S. dollars, together with the exchange rates used for conversion.

If no payment is due to GGL or SB for any Payment Period, the Additional Consideration Payment Statement will so state. All Additional Consideration Payment Statements will be considered Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ Confidential Information under this Agreement, but GSK may disclose such Confidential Information in accordance with Section 11.2 or Section 11.3.

4.3 Additional Consideration Payment Post-Termination Report. Jazz Pharmaceuticals will make a written report to GSK within thirty (30) days after the date of any termination of

[ * ] = 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 406 OF THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED.


Additional Consideration Payment obligations under this Agreement, stating in such report the number, description and Net Sales of Products sold or otherwise disposed of and on which an Additional Consideration Payment is payable hereunder that was not previously reported to GSK.

4.4 Audit. Upon the written request of GSK (but not more frequently than [ * ]), GSK will have the right, upon thirty (30) days advance notice to Jazz Pharmaceuticals and at a mutually agreeable time, to have an independent certified public accountant or like individual reasonably acceptable to Jazz Pharmaceuticals (the “Auditor”) inspect, during normal business hours, Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ directly applicable records for the preceding two (2) years for the purpose of determining the accuracy of Additional Consideration Payment Statements and the associated Additional Consideration Payment made to GGL and SB pursuant to this Agreement. The results of any such examination shall be made available to Jazz Pharmaceuticals. In the event the Auditor concludes that there was an underpayment of the total Additional Consideration Payment to GGL and SB together, the underpayment will be paid by Jazz Pharmaceuticals to GGL or SB or both, as applicable (but subject to the provisions of Section 3.5(b) concerning allocations between GGL and SB), within sixty (60) Business Days after the date Jazz Pharmaceuticals receives such Auditor’s written report; provided, however, if Jazz Pharmaceuticals desires to contest such audit results, Jazz Pharmaceuticals may do so by submitting the results of the audit to arbitration through JAMS New York or San Francisco offices within thirty (30) days after the receipt of such audit, and the arbitration shall be final and binding on GSK and Jazz Pharmaceuticals. Pending the results of such arbitration, Jazz Pharmaceuticals shall be entitled to withhold any disputed amounts claimed by GSK as a result of the audit. In the event the Auditor concludes that there was an overpayment of Additional Consideration Payment to GGL or SB or both, as applicable, the overpayment will be credited toward the next Additional Consideration Payment to be paid by Jazz Pharmaceuticals to GGL or SB or both, as applicable, under this Agreement until fully credited; provided, however, that in the event no further Additional Consideration Payment will become due under this Agreement, such overpayment will be paid by GGL or SB or both, as applicable, to Jazz Pharmaceuticals within sixty (60) Business Days after the date GSK receives such Auditor’s written report. If the underpayment of Additional Consideration is greater than [ * ] percent ([ * ]%) of the Additional Consideration Payment determined by the Auditor to be payable to GSK, the reasonable fees and expenses charged by the Auditor will be paid by Jazz Pharmaceuticals; otherwise GSK will pay the reasonable fees and expenses charged by such Auditor. The Auditor will report to GSK only its conclusions as to whether Jazz Pharmaceuticals is in compliance with its Additional Consideration Payment obligations and the amount of any underpayment or overpayment, and such report and the conclusions contained therein will constitute Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ Confidential Information in accordance with Section 11.1.

4.5 Diligence.

Any time period described in Section 4.5(a) or (b) shall be extended for the same period of time as any delay caused by GSK in transferring the Purchased Assets to Jazz Pharmaceuticals or any delay which was outside the control of Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

4.6 Cessation or Suspension of Development Efforts. If Jazz Pharmaceuticals ceases or suspends development efforts for [ * ] and the other Products covered by the Patents (such that efforts have been suspended with respect to all of the Compounds) for [ * ], such cessation or suspension of development efforts shall constitute a failure of Diligent Efforts by Jazz Pharmaceuticals and a material breach of this Agreement.

they have reached an impasse; (iii) the Parties agree in writing that they have reached an impasse; or (iv) the Parties have not reached a settlement within sixty (60) days of the initiation of the mediation.

(b) SDS shall from time to time submit to audits and inspections by Orphan during normal business hours or at any other time during which the services being audited are ongoing, including but not limited to, audits of regulatory and quality assurance SOPs and of records of contacts with regulatory agencies, provided the scope of any such audit or inspection shall be limited to information and facilities pertaining to Orphan’s program.

(c) No employee of SDS who has been the subject of any disciplinary action by any State Board of Pharmacy shall be entitled to perform Covered Services.

Section 3.6 Returns and Replacement. In the event that Product is damaged in transit as a result of SDS’ negligence or its designated shipper, SDS will replace the Product to the Patient free of charge once the damaged Product is returned to SDS. SDS will monitor all reports of lost Product for the potential for abuse and diversion. SDS will cooperate with state and federal authorities fully in any investigations of lost Product, and will provide reports of such loss to Orphan on a monthly basis for the purpose of allowing Orphan to track the Product and satisfy its FDA reporting requirements. SDS will investigate the loss of Product by interviewing the Patient, and/or physician, report the loss to Orphan and to the appropriate regulatory authorities, as required by law, and record the loss in the Patient’s file. Where there is suspicion of abuse or diversion, SDS will contact the Orphan designee responsible for DEA issues, and lost Product will not be replaced without Orphan’s approval. Where abuse or diversion is not suspected, SDS will replace the lost Product at no charge to the Patient in the event such loss is the result of SDS’ negligence or its designated shipper and record the shipment in the Patient file. SDS will treat a repeat request for lost Product as suspicion of abuse or diversion and report it to the Orphan designee responsible for DEA issues, and SDS will not replace the lost Product without Orphan’s approval. For damaged Product, SDS will make a good faith effort to arrange for the damaged Product to be returned to SDS. Upon receipt of damaged Product, SDS will keep the damaged Product in a secure locked area, and will dispose of it at SDS’ cost in compliance with the applicable SOP for destruction of Product. If Product is returned to SDS due to a complaint of Product quality (i.e., Product taste, appearance, or faulty PIBA), Orphan shall reimburse SDS for the price paid by SDS to Orphan, if any, for such Product and for shipping costs associated with return of Product and SDS’ sending of Product for quality assurance testing at Orphan’s request. SDS shall not be required to disclose any Patient Confidential Information to Orphan pursuant to this Section 3.6 to the extent such disclosure is not permitted under HIPAA and other federal and state law.

Section 3.9 Territory.
