Background and Strategic Rationale
Celator Pharmaceuticals Background History Founded in 1999 Clinical stage biopharmaceutical company that develops therapies to treat cancer Lead Molecule VYXEOS™ (CPX-351) VYXEOS is a nano-scale liposomal co-formulation of cytarabine and daunorubicin at a synergistic 5:1 molar ratio Completed Phase 3 registration study in high-risk1 (secondary) acute myeloid leukemia (AML) U.S. regulatory submission for VYXEOS planned by the end of 3Q16; EU regulatory submission planned by the end of 1Q17 Other Pipeline Molecules CPX-1 is a nano-scale liposomal formulation of irinotecan:floxuridine (clinical) CPX-8 is a hydrophobic docetaxel prodrug nanoparticle formulation (preclinical) Novel combinations of molecularly targeted therapies Facts Listed on Nasdaq (CPXX) Headquarters: Ewing, NJ Proprietary drug ratio technology platform known as CombiPlex® 26 employees Manufacturing and supply agreement for clinical and commercial supply of VYXEOS with Baxter Oncology GmbH in Westphalia, Germany 1High-Risk AML includes secondary AML and de novo AML with a karyotype characteristic of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)
Celator Transaction is a Strong Strategic Fit Differentiated Product Candidate Addresses Unmet Medical Need in High-Risk1 (Secondary) AML Worldwide Product Opportunity Worldwide development and commercialization rights to VYXEOS Differentiated Molecule Phase 3 clinical data show statistically significant improvement in overall survival (HR=0.69, p-value=0.005) in previously untreated high-risk (secondary) AML (VYXEOS vs 7+3). Median overall survival improvement of 3.6 months (9.56 months vs 5.95 months). Significant Unmet Medical Need No new approved therapies demonstrating overall survival benefit in AML in over 20 years in the U.S. VYXEOS expected to address significant unmet need in an orphan disease Expected to treat high risk, poor prognosis patients May allow more outpatient treatment, lessening hospitalization time and costs 1High-Risk AML includes secondary AML and de novo AML with a karyotype characteristic of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)
Celator Transaction is a Strong Strategic Fit Leverages Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ Global Footprint and Enhances Hem/Onc Portfolio FDA Breakthrough Therapy Designation and Expected Long-Lived Asset Commercial Synergies/ Targeted Prescriber Base Overlap of current Jazz Pharmaceuticals’ accounts in academic and community hospital settings AML treaters are highly complementary to our pediatric oncology and transplant prescriber base, as approximately 4,000 AML and ALL patients receive allogeneic HSCT Expect to leverage existing infrastructure and expand field team in preparation for potential launch Regulatory FDA granted Breakthrough Therapy designation for the treatment of adults with therapy-related AML or AML with myelodysplasia-related changes FDA granted Fast Track designation for the treatment of older patients with secondary AML FDA and European Commission granted orphan drug designation to VYXEOS for the treatment of AML Exclusivity Current patents, pending patent applications and regulatory exclusivity are expected to position VYXEOS as a long-lived asset Patents with expiry dates out to 2029 and pending patents out to 2032 HSCT = Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation
U.S. Approved Treatment Options FDA Approvals in Selected Hematology/Oncology Indications May 1996 – May 2016 AML: a Disease with Few Approved Treatment Options Lymphoma Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Multiple Myeloma Chronic Lymphocyte Leukemia Chronic Myeloid Leukemia Acute Myeloid Leukemia US Approvals Subsequently withdrawn* *Mylotarg received accelerated approval in 2000 but was voluntarily withdrawn from the market in 2010 after interim analysis from the confirmatory trial failed to demonstrate efficacy and also showed higher toxicity associated with Mylotarg treatment Source: www.FDA.gov, accessed May 27, 2016, www.centerwatch.com, accessed May 27, 2016
Celator Transaction and Expected Financial Impact Summary Offer Details Offer price of $30.25 per share in cash Total consideration of approximately $1.5 billion Plan to commence tender offer shortly Expect to close tender offer in 3Q16 Financing Plan to finance with cash on hand and our senior secured credit facilities Suspending share repurchases under current program P&L Impact Expected to be modestly dilutive to non-GAAP adjusted EPS in 2016/2017; expected to be accretive to non-GAAP adjusted EPS in 2018 and beyond Expect modest increase in operating expenses in 2016 SG&A: sales force readiness and launch preparation; prepare for early 2017 commercial launch in U.S. R&D: expenses related to regulatory submissions; ongoing clinical development programs Net interest expense expected to increase due to increased borrowings under the existing credit facility and foregone interest income on cash used
Significant Unmet Need AML is the Most Common Type of Acute Leukemia in Adults AML constitutes the most common form of all leukemias in adults1 AML is generally a disease of older adults Median age of diagnosis of ~67 years2 High risk AML represents approximately 40% of AML patients across age groups3 If left untreated, AML progresses rapidly to death1 Poor prognosis even with treatment1 1 Kadia TM, Ann Oncol. 2016 May 27 (5), 770-8, 2 http://seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/html/amyl.html, 3Internal Jazz primary research
