05:23 EDTSHPGShire executes agreements to divest Dermagraft
Shire announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement pursuant to which it has sold its Dermagraft assets to Organogenesis. Dermagraft is a living skin substitute indicated for use in the treatment of full-thickness diabetic foot ulcers and is approved for use in the US and Canada. Going forward Organogenesis will assume all financial and management responsibility for Dermagraft. The Dermagraft assets that have been sold to Organogenesis comprise the key operating assets relating to the development, manufacture and sale of the Dermagraft product. These assets include intellectual property relating to Dermagraft including patents, trademarks and know-how; regulatory filings and registrations relating to Dermagraft; certain manufacturing plant, equipment and materials; Dermagraft product inventory and accounts receivable. These assets had a value of $683M in Shire's September 30, 2013 balance sheet. Shire is generally retaining legacy liabilities relating to the Dermagraft business, including the previously announced Department of Justice investigation relating to the sales and marketing practices of Advanced Biohealing. Shire will receive no upfront payment from Organogenesis but is entitled to receive up to $300M cash in total milestone payments should Organogenesis meet certain annual net sales targets between now and 2018. Shire will record a loss on disposal and associated impairment charges of approximately $650M in Q4, which will be excluded from Non GAAP earnings.

07:02 EDTSHPGShire and the Foundation Fighting Blindness announce agreement
Shire and the Foundation Fighting Blindness announced a new agreement focused on furthering research for a novel treatment for autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa, or adRP, a rare genetic disease that usually first occurs in late childhood or adolescence and is followed by the progressive loss of peripheral vision. There are no currently approved treatment options for adRP. As part of the agreement, the Foundation Fighting Blindness and its research partners will provide Shire with expert knowledge and scientific background regarding adRP, as well as pertinent clinical information that could be useful in the development of a drug to treat adRP. Shire is compensating the Foundation Fighting Blindness for its considerable expertise in early-stage drug discovery and development, as well as making available it significant expertise and experience with the submission of investigational new drug applications.

07:09 EDTSHPGShire reaffirms 2015 EPS growth outlook of mid-single digits
Shire said, "We've made a strong start to 2015, and remain confident in delivering Non GAAP diluted earnings per ADS growth in the mid-single digits in 2015. On a Constant Exchange Rate basis we continue to expect product sales growth in the mid-to-high single digits. When excluding INTUNIV, we anticipate low double digit product sales growth on a CER basis. Based on current exchange rates we anticipate low-to-mid single digit product sales growth in 2015, as we expect growth to be held back three to four percentage points by foreign exchange headwinds which particularly impact ELAPRASE, REPLAGAL and VPRIV sales. We expect to see a lower rate of product sales growth through the remainder of 2015 than we've delivered in the first quarter, principally due to stronger comparatives. Royalties and other revenues are expected to increase by 30-40% in 2015, as we include NPS's royalty streams for the first time. Our Non GAAP gross margin is expected to be in line with 2014."
