Emergent BioSolutions Secures Exclusive U.S. Commercial Rights To Next Generation Pandemic Influenza Vaccine Candidate

Emergent BioSolutions Inc. (NYSE: EBS) announced today that it has signed a license agreement with VaxInnate Corporation under which Emergent acquired the exclusive right to manufacture and sell VaxInnate’s pandemic influenza vaccine candidate in the United States. The product candidate, a recombinant vaccine, has the potential to be produced quickly, at high yields and in a cost-effective manner. This license enables Emergent to fulfill the requirement to secure a pandemic influenza vaccine candidate under its contract with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), which established Emergent as a Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing (Center) in June 2012. VaxInnate will continue to develop its pandemic influenza vaccine candidate under its current BARDA contract and Emergent will manufacture the pandemic influenza vaccine candidate using flexible manufacturing technology.

“This transaction, which secures manufacturing rights to a next generation pandemic influenza vaccine candidate, is a step towards satisfying Emergent’s commitment to BARDA as a Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing,” said Daniel J. Abdun-Nabi, president and chief executive officer of Emergent BioSolutions. “Our public-private partnership with BARDA, which taps into our core manufacturing capabilities and infrastructure, provides a real opportunity to make significant progress to address the nation’s medical countermeasure manufacturing requirements. We look forward to continuing to work with BARDA to achieve that important goal.”

As a Center, Emergent is required to acquire intellectual property rights for a pandemic influenza vaccine candidate and to obtain facility licensure to manufacture a pandemic influenza vaccine under contract HHSO100201200004I, funded by the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
