05:21 EDTALNY, SNYAlnylam, Genzyme form transformational alliance for RNAi therapeutics
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (ALNY) and Genzyme, a Sanofi company (SNY), announced that they have formed a transformational alliance for the development and commercialization of RNAi therapeutics as genetic medicines. Alnylam will retain product rights in North America and Western Europe, while Genzyme will obtain the right to access Alnylam’s current “5x15”1 and future genetic medicines pipeline in the rest of the world, or ROW, including global product rights for certain programs. In addition, Genzyme becomes a major Alnylam shareholder through an upfront purchase of $700M of newly issued stock at approximately $80/share, representing an approximately 12% ownership position. This alliance significantly bolsters Alnylam’s balance sheet to over $1B in cash, enabling an increased investment in the company’s RNAi therapeutics pipeline and is expected to secure Alnylam’s financial independence through to multiple product launches. Upon the closing of the transaction, Genzyme will opt-in to patisiran, or ALN-TTR02, – an RNAi therapeutic currently in a Phase 3 trial for the treatment of transthyretin, or TTR-mediated amyloidosis, or ATTR patients with Familial Amyloidotic Polyneuropathy – for its ROW territories, while Alnylam retains full product rights in North America and Western Europe. Alnylam and Genzyme have also agreed to expand their current collaboration on ALN-TTRsc – an RNAi therapeutic currently in a Phase 2 trial for the treatment of ATTR patients with TTR amyloid cardiomyopathy – where the parties will co-develop and co-promote ALN-TTRsc in North America and Western Europe; Alnylam will maintain development and commercialization control with ALN-TTRsc and Genzyme will develop and commercialize the product in its ROW territories. The companies believe that this broadened collaboration on ALN-TTRsc will increase the product’s overall value, as significant market development and commercial operational scale is warranted to maximize the opportunity for both familial cardiac amyloidosis senile systemic amyloidosis manifestations of TTR cardiac amyloidosis.
