Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On July 13, 2022, Theravance Biopharma, Inc., a Cayman Islands exempted company (“TBPH”), entered into an Equity Purchase and Funding Agreement (including the schedules and exhibits thereto, the “Purchase Agreement”) with Royalty Pharma Investments 2019 ICAV (“Royalty Pharma”), an Irish collective asset-management vehicle, pursuant to which TBPH agreed to sell, assign, transfer, convey and deliver, or cause its wholly owned subsidiaries, Theravance Biopharma US Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Theravance Holdings”), and Triple Royalty Sub II LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Triple II”), to sell, assign, transfer, convey and deliver, 2,125 Class B Units and 6,375 Class C Units, respectively, of Theravance Respiratory Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TRC”), to Royalty Pharma (the “TBPH Equity Sale”, and collectively with the other transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement, the “Transaction”), which includes the right to receive 85% of the royalty payments on worldwide net sales of Assigned Collaboration Products (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) pursuant to the terms of that certain Collaboration Agreement, dated as November 14, 2002, by and between Innoviva, Inc. (formerly known as Theravance, Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“Innoviva”), and Glaxo Group Limited, a private company limited by shares registered under the laws of England and Wales (“GSK”) (as amended, the “Collaboration Agreement”).

 

Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, at the closing of the Transaction (the “Closing”), Royalty Pharma will pay TBPH approximately $1.1 billion in cash (the “Closing Payment”). In consideration for the Closing Payment, from and after January 1, 2023, for any calendar year starting with the year ending December 31, 2023 and ending with the year December 31, 2026, upon certain milestone minimum royalty amounts for the Assigned Collaboration Products being met, Royalty Pharma is obligated to make certain cash payments to TBPH (the “Milestone Payments”), which are not to exceed $250.0 million in the aggregate. Additionally, TBPH will receive from Royalty Pharma 85% of the royalty payments on the Assigned Collaboration Products payable (a) on and after January 1, 2031, for sales or other activities related to the Assigned Collaboration Products in the U.S., and (b) on and after July 1, 2029, for sales or other activities related to the Assigned Collaboration Products outside of the U.S.

 

Further, Royalty Pharma will pay TBPH $25.0 million at the Closing and an additional $15.0 million upon the first regulatory approval of any pharmaceutical product that contains Ampreloxetine as an active pharmaceutical ingredient by either (a) the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) or (b) the first of (i) the European Medicines Agency or (ii) all four of Germany, France, Italy and Spain, for an aggregate price not to exceed $40.0 million (the “Ampreloxetine Purchase Price”). In exchange for the Ampreloxetine Purchase Price, TBPH will make quarterly royalty payments to Royalty Pharma equal to the amount of Ampreloxetine Net Sales (as defined in the Purchase Agreement) recognized during the applicable quarter multiplied by 2.5% for the first $500.0 million in Ampreloxetine Net Sales and 4.5% for Ampreloxetine Net Sales in excess of $500.0 million. These royalty payments from TBPH to Royalty Pharma will continue until, on a country by country and product by product basis, the later of (a) the expiration of all valid and enforceable claims of any patent, or pending claim of a good faith patent application during the five (5) years from the initial filing of such application, that cover the applicable Ampreloxetine product or the manufacture or use thereof in the applicable country and (b) the expiration of regulatory exclusivity granted by the FDA or equivalent organization in the applicable country.

 

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of TBPH and Royalty Pharma, including with respect to organization, authorization, intellectual property matters and tax matters, and certain covenants with respect to confidentiality, taxes and actions and conduct relating to preservation of TRC prior to the Closing. TBPH and Royalty Pharma will each indemnify the other against damages arising from breaches of representations, warranties and covenants under the Purchase Agreement. The completion of the Transaction is subject to legality, compliance by the parties with the covenants set forth in the Purchase Agreement and the redemption of the 9.5% Fixed Rate Term Notes due on or before 2035 issued by Triple II.

 

The Purchase Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Closing date by mutual written consent of the parties or by either party if the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement have not been consummated on or before the date that is thirty (30) business days from the date of the Purchase Agreement.

 

 

 

 

In connection with the Transaction, on July 13, 2022, TBPH, GSK and Royalty Pharma entered into a Master Consent (the “Master Consent”) whereby, among other things, GSK has consented and agreed to the TBPH Equity Sale and the grant of certain covenants and agreements as set forth in the Purchase Agreement, subject to the Closing occurring. Pursuant to the Master Consent and effective upon the Closing, each of TBPH, GSK, TRC, Innoviva and Royalty Pharma, as applicable, have agreed to (a) terminate (i) the Strategic Alliance Agreement, dated as of March 30, 2004, by and between Innoviva and GSK, as amended, and (ii) the Master Agreement, dated as of March 3, 2014, by and among Innoviva, TBPH and GSK, and (b) amend (i) the Extension Agreement, dated as of March 3, 2014, by and between TBPH and GSK, (ii) the Collaboration Agreement and (iii) the Limited Liability Company Agreement of TRC.

 

Additionally, in connection with the Transaction, on July 13, 2022, Innoviva, Innoviva TRC Holdings LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, Royalty Pharma, TRC, TBPH, Theravance Holdings and Triple II entered into a Release Agreement (the “Release Agreement”) whereby, effective upon the Closing, among other things, each party to the Release Agreement released the other parties thereto for claims relating to TRC or the ownership of TRC by TBPH or Innoviva prior to the Closing, and TBPH consented to the transfer of Innoviva’s interests in TRC to Royalty Pharma and the distribution of the investments held by TRC to Innoviva, subject to the terms and conditions therein.

 

The foregoing description of the Purchase Agreement, Master Consent, Release Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Purchase Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 2.1 hereto, the Master Consent, which is attached as Exhibit 10.1 hereto, and the Release Agreement, which is attached as Exhibit 10.2 hereto, and is each incorporated into this Current Report on Form 8-K by reference. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement were made only for the purposes of the Purchase Agreement, were made as of specific dates, were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement and may not have been intended to be statements of fact, but rather, as a method of allocating risk and governing the contractual rights and relationships among the parties to the Purchase Agreement. In addition, such representations, warranties and covenants may have been qualified by certain disclosures not reflected in the text of the Purchase Agreement and may apply standards of materiality and other qualifications and limitations in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by TBPH’s stockholders. In reviewing the representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement or any descriptions thereof in this summary, it is important to bear in mind that such representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions were not intended by the parties to the Purchase Agreement to be characterizations of the actual state of facts or conditions of TBPH. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures. For the foregoing reasons, the representations, warranties and covenants or any descriptions of those provisions should not be read alone and should instead be read in conjunction with the other information contained in the reports, statements and filings that TBPH publicly files with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. TBPH acknowledges that, notwithstanding the inclusion of the foregoing cautionary statements, it is responsible for considering whether additional specific disclosures of material information regarding material contractual provisions are required to make the statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K not misleading.

 

Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

Effective June 6, 2022, TBPH subleased approximately 78,000 square feet of our South San Francisco office and laboratory space. TBPH expects the sublease to result in approximately $52.7 million cumulative, or approximately $6.7 million annually, in cash savings through May 2030. In addition, on May 9, 2022, TBPH assigned the lease to its previous offices in Dublin, Ireland and entered into a new lease for smaller offices, which TBPH expects will result in approximately $1.4 million cumulative, or approximately $0.3 million annually, in cash savings through March 2027. A full accounting and description of the impact of these changes on TBPH's balance sheet will be provided in TBPH's quarterly report for the period ended June 30, 2022.

 

The cash savings described herein do not impact the TBPH financial guidance as TBPH planned to sublease office and laboratory space in connection with its 2021 restructuring.

If the independent accounting firm determines that the actual Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments in any calendar year covered by such audit were more than five percent (5%) greater than the amounts of the Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments previously paid by the Seller to the Purchaser for such calendar year, the Seller shall promptly reimburse (or cause to be reimbursed) the Purchaser for such audit expenses.

(d)            Indemnification Offset. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Seller shall be able to offset from any Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments any Losses for which any Seller Indemnified Party is agreed or adjudicated to be entitled to recover pursuant to, and in accordance with, Section 8.

(e)            Reserved.

 37 

 

 

(f)            No Development or Commercialization Obligations. The Purchaser hereby agrees and acknowledges that (i) the Ampreloxetine Royalty Payment is a contingent payment obligation of the Seller and there can be no assurance regarding any sales of any Ampreloxetine Products or the occurrence, timing, amount or duration of any Ampreloxetine Net Sales or Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments, if any, and (ii) without limiting the Seller’s obligations pursuant to this Agreement to the extent relating to Ampreloxetine, the Seller and its Affiliates shall have no obligation or liability with respect to Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments unless and until, and solely to the extent that, Ampreloxetine Net Sales are recognized. For avoidance of doubt, the recognition of Ampreloxetine Net Sales is a necessary condition prior to any obligation on the part of the Seller with respect to any Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments. Without limiting the foregoing, the Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the Seller and its Affiliates are undertaking no commercially reasonable efforts or other obligation to undertake any development or commercialization of Ampreloxetine, or with respect to if, when and how such development or commercialization may be undertaken and makes no representations or warranties relating to Ampreloxetine, express or implied, and hereby disclaims any such representations and warranties.

(g)            Disputes. To the extent that the applicable licensee under an Outbound License or a sublicense thereunder (the “Outbound Licensee”) does not pay to the Seller (or an Affiliate thereof) any amounts due and payable to the Seller (or an Affiliate thereof) for Ampreloxetine Net Sales under an Outbound License, the Seller may withhold the affected portion(s) of Ampreloxetine Royalty Payment(s) until such unpaid amounts are paid to the Seller (or an Affiliate thereof) by the Outbound Licensee, provided, that, the Seller (or its Affiliate) will Dispute such unpaid amounts in good faith pursuant to the Outbound License. Such corresponding Ampreloxetine Royalty Payment(s) that are withheld pursuant to the foregoing in this Section 5.12(g) shall not be subject to any interest pursuant to the last sentence of Section 5.12(a) with respect to such withheld Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments unless and until, and only for the time period after (if applicable), thirty (30) days after such amounts under Dispute are paid to the Seller (or its Affiliate). If the Seller (or any Affiliate thereof) receives any interest on such withheld Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments, the Purchaser shall be entitled to its pro rata portion thereof. “Dispute” means to notify the Outbound Licensee of non-payment and reasonably pursue payment of such amounts, including by the exercise of any internal informal dispute resolution process as between personnel of the parties that may be included in the Outbound License and otherwise escalating the matter within the Outbound Licensee’s organization as appropriate, provided, that, the Seller (or its Affiliate) will have no obligation to undertake any litigation, arbitration, mediation, administrative action or similar proceeding in connection with such matter in order to “Dispute” such matter.

(h)            Assignment; Liens.

(i)            The Seller shall not sell, assign or otherwise transfer title to any third part(ies) (excluding Seller’s Affiliates) all or substantially all of the Ampreloxetine program, or a majority of the Seller’s and it’s Affiliates’ title to or financial value thereof, unless any such third part(ies) agrees in a writing delivered to the Purchaser to assume all of the Seller’s obligations under this Section 5.12, in which case the Seller shall have no further obligations to the Purchaser or its Affiliates relating to Ampreloxetine. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein (other than the provisions of Section 5.12(h)(ii)) prevents the Seller from selling, transferring, assigning or pledging any or all of its retained right, title and interest in and to Ampreloxetine Net Sales or other Ampreloxetine proceeds and agreeing to reasonable ancillary rights relating thereto.

 38 

 

 

(ii)           (a)           Notwithstanding the foregoing in Section 5.12(h)(i) above, the Seller and its Affiliates may incur, or cause or allow to be incurred, Liens on no less than a majority of the Seller’s and its Affiliates’ title to or financial value of the Ampreloxetine program (including any rights or assets to the extent relating thereto), whether in whole or in part, and/or any right, title or interest in or to any of the foregoing (the “Ampreloxetine Lien Collateral”), without any requirement for prior notice, approval or consent of the Purchaser, but with notice within ten (10) Business Days after consummation of such transaction to the Purchaser (which notice shall include reasonable detail on the transaction and its material terms).

(b)            If,

(x)            the holder of such Lien (the “Ampreloxetine Lienholder”) or its Affiliates or its or their agent(s) or representative(s) (any such Person, a “Foreclosure Person”) forecloses on, exercises rights or remedies with respect to, or otherwise gains control of, the Ampreloxetine Lien Collateral (the initial date such action is taken the, “Foreclosure Date”); and

(y)            the Foreclosure Person elects to continue the Ampreloxetine business or sells, assigns or otherwise transfers any of the Ampreloxetine Lien Collateral to a transferee, such that in either case Ampreloxetine Net Sales continue to be generated; and

(z)            the Foreclosure Person or such transferee does not or is not obligated to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement related to Ampreloxetine, including the obligation to make Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments, or the substantial equivalent thereof that is reasonably acceptable to the Purchaser;

then,

(A)            within fifteen (15) Business Days of the satisfaction of subclauses (x), (y) and (z) of Section 5.12(h)(ii)(b) above, the Seller will select a nationally recognized independent advisory firm with expertise in pharmaceutical industry valuations (a “Valuation Firm”), to provide a calculation of the Ampreloxetine Interest Price (the “Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price”); and

(B)            within sixty (60) Business Days from such Valuation Firm’s selection by the Seller, the Seller’s Valuation Firm will determine the Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price (with such value determined as of the date such Valuation Firm is selected (the “Valuation Date”)), and the Seller will deliver in writing to the Purchaser the Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price and a summary report reasonably providing the basis therefor (provided that Seller and Purchaser each agree to provide such Valuation Firm a customary non-reliance letter upon request); and

 39 

 

 

(C)            for a period of ten (10) Business Days (which time period may be extended by the mutual written agreement of the Purchaser and the Seller), the Purchaser and the Seller shall discuss in good faith the amount and calculation of the Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price and negotiate in good faith in an effort to resolve any questions or disputes with respect to the amount and calculation of such Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price (it being understood all such negotiations related thereto shall, unless otherwise agreed by the Purchaser and the Seller in writing, be governed by Rule 408 of the Federal Rules of Evidence and any applicable similar state rule). If confirmed in writing by the Purchaser and the Seller, the Seller’s Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price, as it may be modified by any adjustments agreed by the Purchaser and the Seller, shall be deemed the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price; and

(D)            if the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price shall not have been established pursuant to clause (C) above, then (i) the Purchaser shall have fifteen (15) Business Days from the expiration of the period set forth in clause (C) to select its own Valuation Firm to provide a calculation of the Ampreloxetine Interest Price as of the Valuation Date (the “Counter Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price”) and (ii) within sixty (60) Business Days from such Valuation Firm’s selection by the Purchaser, such Valuation Firm will determine the Counter Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price, and the Purchaser will deliver in writing to the Seller the Counter Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price and a summary report reasonably providing the basis therefor (provided that Seller and Purchaser each agree to provide such Valuation Firm a customary non-reliance letter upon request); and

(E)            for a period of ten (10) Business Days (which time period may be extended by the mutual written agreement of the Purchaser and the Seller), the Purchaser and the Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve the differences in their respective amounts and calculations of the Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price and the Counter Proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price in an effort to arrive at a final Ampreloxetine Purchase Price (it being understood all such negotiations related thereto shall, unless otherwise agreed by the Purchaser and the Seller in writing, be governed by Rule 408 of the Federal Rules of Evidence and any applicable similar state rule). If a final Ampreloxetine Purchase Price is confirmed in writing by the Purchaser and the Seller, such amount shall be deemed the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price; and

(F)            if the Purchaser and the Seller do not reach a final resolution of the amount and calculation of the Ampreloxetine Interest Price within the time period set forth in clause (E) above, then the Seller’s and the Purchaser’s respective Valuation Firms who calculated their respective Ampreloxetine Interest Price proposals will within ten (10) Business Days (which time period may be extended by the mutual written agreement of the Purchaser and the Seller) from the expiration of the period set forth in clause (E) above (i) appoint a third Valuation Firm (the “Deciding Valuation Firm”) (provided that if such respective Valuation Firms cannot agree on any other Deciding Valuation Firm, then the Deciding Valuation Firm to be appointed shall be an arbitrator with expertise in pharmaceutical industry valuations) and (ii) provide such Deciding Valuation Firm their respective proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Prices, together with their respective summary report reasonably providing the basis therefor and any other commentary it wishes to submit; and

 

 40 

 

(G)            within thirty (30) Business Days after the appointment of the Deciding Valuation Firm, the Deciding Valuation Firm shall select either such proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price provided by the Purchaser or the Seller that the Deciding Valuation Firm believes most closely approximates the Ampreloxetine Interest Price as would have been determined by the Deciding Valuation Firm had it been asked to deliver its own calculation (the “Determined Ampreloxetine Interest Price”). The Deciding Valuation Firm may not average or otherwise independently determine a proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price that is different from either the proposed Ampreloxetine Interest Price provided by the Purchaser or the Seller. Such selection of the Determined Ampreloxetine Interest Price by the Deciding Valuation Firm shall not be subject to dispute or review; and

(H)            each party hereto shall pay the fees and expenses of its respective Valuation Firm. If a Deciding Valuation Firm is retained under clause (F) above, the party who proposed the Ampreloxetine Interest Price that was not selected by the Deciding Valuation Firm as the Determined Ampreloxetine Interest Price shall pay the costs of the Deciding Valuation Firm; and

(I)            within fifteen (15) Business Days following the determination of the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price (i.e., as determined pursuant to this Section 5.12(h), including the Determined Ampreloxetine Interest Price), the Seller will purchase the Purchaser’s right, title and interest in and to the Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments under this Agreement at the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price by wire transfer of immediately available funds to one or more accounts notified as such to the Seller by the Purchaser. A late fee of four percent (4%) over the Prime Rate (calculated on a per annum basis) will accrue on all unpaid amounts with respect to the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price from the date such obligation was due. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Purchaser’s right, title and interest in and to the Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments will be terminated and extinguished as of the date the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price is paid to the Purchaser pursuant to this clause (I); provided that the payment of the final Ampreloxetine Interest Price and receipt of such payment shall be the Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy with respect to the Purchaser’s right, title and interest in and to the Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments; provided, further, that the Purchaser shall not be entitled to any Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments in respect of Ampreloxetine Net Sales following the Valuation Date.

(a)            at any time prior to the Closing Date by mutual written consent of the Seller and the Purchaser; or

Section 8

INDEMNIFICATION

8.1            General Indemnity. Subject to Section 8.3, from and after the Closing:

(a)            the Seller hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Purchaser and its Affiliates and its and their directors, managers, trustees, officers, agents and employees (the “Purchaser Indemnified Parties”) from, against and in respect of all Losses suffered or incurred by the Purchaser Indemnified Parties to the extent arising out of or resulting from (i) any breach of any of the representations or warranties of the Seller in this Agreement or (without duplication of the recovery of any Losses under) the certificate delivered pursuant to Section 6.2(b) hereof or (ii) any breach of any of the covenants or agreements of the Seller in this Agreement.

(b)            The Purchaser hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Seller and its Affiliates and its and their directors, officers, agents and employees (“Seller Indemnified Parties”) from, against and in respect of all Losses suffered or incurred by the Seller Indemnified Parties to the extent arising out of or resulting from (i) any breach of any of the representations or warranties of the Purchaser in this Agreement or (without duplication of the recovery of any Losses under) the certificate delivered pursuant to Section 6.3(b) hereof or (ii) any breach of any of the covenants or agreements of the Purchaser in this Agreement.

8.2            Notice of Claims. If either a Purchaser Indemnified Party, on the one hand, or a Seller Indemnified Party, on the other hand (such Purchaser Indemnified Party on the one hand and such Seller Indemnified Party on the other hand being hereinafter referred to as an “Indemnified Party”), has suffered or incurred any Losses for which indemnification may be sought under this Section 8, the Indemnified Party shall so notify the other party from whom indemnification is sought under this Section 8 (the “Indemnifying Party”) promptly in writing describing such Loss, the amount or estimated amount thereof, if known or reasonably capable of estimation, and the method of computation of such Loss, all with reasonable particularity and containing a reference to the provisions of this Agreement in respect of which such Loss shall have occurred. If any claim, action, suit or proceeding is asserted or instituted by or against a third party with respect to which an Indemnified Party intends to claim any Loss under this Section 8.2, such Indemnified Party shall promptly notify the Indemnifying Party of such claim, action, suit or proceeding and tender to the Indemnifying Party the defense of such claim, action, suit or proceeding. A failure by an Indemnified Party to give notice and to tender the defense of such claim, action, suit or proceeding in a timely manner pursuant to this Section 8.2 shall not limit the obligation of the Indemnifying Party under this Section 8, except to the extent such Indemnifying Party is actually prejudiced thereby.

 43 

 

 

8.3            Limitations on Liability.

(a)            Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, but subject to Section 8.3(b), the aggregate amount of all Losses for which the Seller shall be liable pursuant to this Agreement (other than for (i) any breaches of any of the covenants or agreements of the Seller in this Agreement required to be performed or otherwise satisfied following the Closing and (ii) any Knowing and Intentional Breach of Sections 5.1(b) or 5.1(c)) shall not exceed an amount equal to (i) the Purchase Price (excluding the Ampreloxetine Purchase Price and the Outer Years Royalty) received by the Seller less (ii) the aggregate amount of TBPH Royalty Share received by the Purchaser from and after the third (3rd) anniversary of the Closing Date. No party hereto shall be liable for any consequential, punitive, special or incidental damages under this Section 8 (and no claim for indemnification hereunder shall be asserted) as a result of any breach or violation of any covenant or agreement of such party (including under this Section 8) in or pursuant to this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Purchaser shall be entitled to make indemnification claims, in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 8, for any portion of the TRC Royalty that the Purchaser was entitled to receive but did not receive due to any indemnifiable events under this Agreement as Losses, and such portion of the TRC Royalty shall not be deemed consequential, punitive, special or incidental damages for any purpose of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Seller shall be entitled to make indemnification claims, in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section 8, for any portion of any Milestone Payment and Outer Years Royalty that the Seller was entitled to receive but did not receive due to any indemnifiable events under this Agreement as Losses, and such portion of such Milestone Payment shall not be deemed consequential, punitive, special or incidental damages for any purpose of this Agreement.

(b)            Notwithstanding Section 8.3(a) and any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the aggregate amount of all Ampreloxetine Losses for which the Seller shall be liable shall not exceed an amount equal to the applicable Ampreloxetine Liability Cap. No party hereto shall be liable for any consequential, punitive, special or incidental damages to the extent relating to Ampreloxetine-related terms and conditions of this Agreement (and no claim for indemnification hereunder shall be asserted) as a result of any breach or violation of any covenant or agreement of such party (including under Section 5.12) in or pursuant to this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, Losses that comprise any portion of the Ampreloxetine Royalty Payments that the Purchaser was entitled to receive, but did not receive due to any indemnifiable events under this Agreement, shall not be deemed consequential, punitive, special or incidental damages for any purpose of this Agreement.

(c)            Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or otherwise to the contrary in any other document, including the Related Documents, in no event will the Seller have any liability for Losses suffered by the Purchaser or any of its Affiliates as a result of, or arising out of, or in connection with any fact, event, change, development or effect caused by Innoviva after the date hereof. Each Indemnified Party shall take all commercially reasonable steps to mitigate any Losses incurred by such party upon and after becoming aware of any event or condition that would reasonably be expected to give rise to any indemnification rights hereunder including pursuing any available insurance claims or claims against third parties.

 44 

 

 

8.4            Third-Party Claims. Following the receipt of notice provided by an Indemnified Party pursuant to Section 8.2 of any third-party claim, an Indemnifying Party shall have the right to assume the defense of such claim, at such Indemnifying Party’s expense and with counsel of its choice reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of such claim, the Indemnified Party shall, at the request of the Indemnifying Party, use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate in such defense. So long as the Indemnifying Party is conducting the defense of such claim as provided in this Section 8.4, the Indemnified Party may retain separate co-counsel at its own expense and may participate in the defense of such claim, and the Indemnifying Party shall not consent to the entry of any Order or enter into any settlement with respect to such claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party unless such Order or settlement (A) provides for the payment by the Indemnifying Party of money as sole relief (if any) for the claimant (other than customary and reasonable confidentiality obligations relating to such claim, Order or settlement), (B) results in the full and general release of the Indemnified Party from all liabilities arising out of, relating to or in connection with such claim and (C) does not involve a finding or admission of any violation of any law, rule, regulation or Order, or the rights of any Person, and has no effect on any other claims that may be made against the Indemnified Party. In the event the Indemnifying Party does not or ceases to conduct the defense of such claim as so provided, (i) the Indemnified Party may defend against, and consent to the entry of any Order or enter into any settlement with respect to, such claim in any manner it may reasonably deem to be appropriate and (ii) if otherwise indemnifiable pursuant to Section 8.1, the Indemnifying Party shall remain responsible for any Losses the Indemnified Party may suffer as a result of such claim subject to the limitations in Section 8.3.

8.5            Exclusive Remedy. Except as set forth in Section 9.4, from and after Closing, the rights of the parties hereto pursuant to (and subject to the conditions of) this Section 8 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of each of the parties hereto and their respective Affiliates with respect to any claims (whether based in contract, tort or otherwise) resulting from or relating to any breach of the representations, warranties covenants and agreements made under this Agreement (or any certificate delivered pursuant to Section 6.2(b) or Section 6.3(b) hereof), and each party hereto hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, and agrees not to assert after Closing, any other claim or action against the other party hereto and its Affiliates in respect of any such breach. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary in this Agreement, claims for fraud and claims under the Related Documents shall not be waived or limited in any way by this Section 8.

8.6            Survival. Subject to the limitations and other provisions of this Agreement, the representations and warranties contained in Section 3 and Section 4 shall survive the Closing and shall remain in full force and effect until the date that is fifteen (15) months following the Closing Date, except that (a) the representations and warranties set forth in Section 3.7(d) (Taxes) shall survive until the date that is ninety (90) days after the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations and (b) the Fundamental Representations and the Purchaser Fundamental Representations shall survive the Closing and shall remain in full force and effect until the date that is five (5) years following the Closing. All of the covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement that by their nature are required to be performed after the Closing shall survive the Closing until fully performed or fulfilled.

Section 9

GENERAL PROVISIONS

9.1            Binding Effect; Assignment.

(a)            Subject to the remainder of this Section 9.1, this Agreement and all the rights and powers granted hereby shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns.  Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this Section 9.1 shall be null and void.

(b)            This Agreement and the rights, interests and obligations hereunder may not be assigned or otherwise transferred (in whole or in part, and including by transfer by operation of law) by the Purchaser without the prior written consent of the Seller. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Purchaser may, without the prior written consent of the Seller, assign or transfer this Agreement and its rights, interests and obligations hereunder (in whole but not in part) to any Person to which the Purchaser transfers all of the rights and interests of the Purchaser and the Company with respect to the Assigned Collaboration Products and the TRC Royalty, provided, that such assignee agrees in writing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, the Related Documents, the Collaboration Agreement, the LLC Agreement and the Master Agreement, as applicable, and, provided, further that the Purchaser furnishes to the Seller a written agreement to that effect.

(c)            Following the Closing, subject to Section 5.12(h) of this Agreement, the rights and interests hereunder may be assigned, encumbered or otherwise transferred (in whole or in part, and including by change of control or transfer by operation of law) by the Seller without the consent of the Purchaser, provided, no such assignment, encumbrance or transfer by the Seller shall relieve the Seller of any of its obligations hereunder (unless (i) otherwise agreed to in writing by the Purchaser or (ii) in connection with the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Seller provided that the other party to such transaction agrees in writing to be bound by such obligations of the Seller hereunder).

(d)            Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 9.1, each of the Purchaser and the Seller agrees not to assign or otherwise transfer their rights, interests and obligations hereunder without consent of the other party if such assignment or transfer, as determined at the time of such assignment or transfer based upon current Applicable Law at such time (taking into account any reasonably anticipated change of Applicable Law), would subject any amount payable under this Agreement to any withholding or deduction on account of Taxes pursuant to Section 5.7(c), except in each case to the extent that any such withholding or deduction on account of Taxes was applicable immediately before such assignment or transfer; provided that the Purchaser may assign or transfer its rights, interests and obligations hereunder subject to and in accordance with Section 9.1(b) if such assignment or transfer, as determined at the time of such assignment or transfer based upon current Applicable Law (taking into account any reasonably anticipated change of Applicable Law) at such time, would not result in a decrease in the amounts otherwise received by the Seller as compared to such amount prior to giving effect to such assignment or transfer.

7.       Amendments or Modifications.

8.       Successors; Third Party Beneficiary. This Agreement is intended to bind, and inure to the benefit of, the parties and each of their respective successors, assigns, heirs, executors, administrators and representatives.

9.       Remedies; Miscellaneous.

Each of the parties acknowledges that it has been represented by counsel (or had the opportunity to be so represented and waived its right to do so) in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby. Accordingly, any rule of law or any legal decision that would provide any party with a defense to the enforcement of the terms of this Agreement against such party based upon lack of legal counsel shall have no application and is expressly waived. No party shall have any term or provision construed against such party solely by reason of such party having participated in the drafting of such provision.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

Each of Theravance and Innoviva is considering the sale of all of its interests in Theravance Respiratory Company, LLC (“TRC”) (the “Sale”) to Royalty Pharma Investments 2019 ICAV (together with its affiliates, the “Purchaser”). TRC has the right to receive royalties and other payments from GSK under the Collaboration Agreement relating to each Collaboration Product (as defined in the Collaboration Agreement) and any other compound that has been, is currently or may in the future be developed or commercialized under the Collaboration Agreement other than the Retained Products (collectively, the “Assigned Collaboration Products” and such royalties and other payments, the “Receivables”).  For purposes of this letter, “Retained Products” means ANOROTM, BREO®/RELVAR® and VI Monotherapy, each as defined in the TRC LLC Agreement.

 

Theravance, Innoviva and TRC each hereby agrees that in connection with the Sale, and assuming the receipt of any necessary consent from GSK, Innoviva and Theravance may disclose to the Purchaser (A) Proprietary Information (as defined in the TRC LLC Agreement) requested by Purchaser in order to consummate the Sale, including, but not limited to, the royalty reports provided by GSK to TRC pursuant to the Collaboration Agreement and the TRC LLC Agreement and the Financial Plans (as defined in the TRC LLC Agreement) provided by TRC to Theravance pursuant to the TRC LLC Agreement and (B) any notices, reports, correspondence and other confidential communications and information received in connection with, relating to or involving the Collaboration Agreement, any Assigned Collaboration Product, TRC, the TRC LLC Agreement or the Master Agreement. The Purchaser hereby agrees to be bound by the confidentiality provisions set forth in the Collaboration Agreement, the Master Agreement and the TRC LLC Agreement with respect to all such information furnished to the Purchaser.

 

 

 

 

Notwithstanding anything in the TRC LLC Agreement (including without limitation Section 8.6) or Master Agreement to the contrary, Theravance, Innoviva and TRC agree that they will not contend that the sharing of any information by Theravance or Innoviva with Purchaser pursuant to this agreement constitutes a breach of the TRC LLC Agreement, the Master Agreement or any other agreement or obligation. To the fullest extent permitted by law, Theravance, Innoviva and TRC each release, and covenant not to assert any claims against, Theravance or Innoviva, as applicable, relating in any way to the sharing of information by such party with Purchaser in accordance with this agreement.

 

Please confirm your consent and agreement to the foregoing by signing and returning a counterpart of this letter (the provisions of which shall, consistent with the Collaboration Agreement, be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A.), which shall be deemed to be effective immediately upon execution hereof with respect to the disclosures permitted by the second and third paragraphs hereof.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

GSK hereby agrees that, in connection with a proposed transaction with Royalty Pharma Plc related to the sale of Trelegy® royalties under the Collaboration Agreement, Theravance Respiratory Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TRC”), its members Innoviva and Theravance and their affiliates, may disclose to Royalty Pharma Plc and its affiliates (collectively, “Royalty Pharma”) (a) the royalty reports provided by GSK to TRC pursuant to the Collaboration Agreement, and (b) any notices, reports, correspondence and other confidential communications and information delivered pursuant to, relating to or involving the Collaboration Agreement, Extension Agreement, Master Agreement or TRC LLC Agreement (collectively, the “Agreements”) or the products under the Collaboration Agreement (in each case, other than to the extent relating ANOROTM, BREO®/RELVAR® and VI Monotherapy) (collectively, the “Confidential Information”).

 

Royalty Pharma shall keep all Confidential Information received from TRC with the same degree of care it maintains the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information. It shall solely use such Confidential Information for the purpose of evaluating the proposed transaction (the “Purpose”) and shall not disclose the same to any other Person other than to such of its agents who have a need to know such Confidential Information in connection with the Purpose. Royalty Pharma shall advise any agent who receives such Confidential Information of the confidential nature thereof and of the obligations contained in this letter relating thereto, and Royalty Pharma shall ensure that all such agents comply with such obligations and shall be responsible for any breaches by such agents. In the event the proposed transaction is not consummated or at any time upon request from GSK, Royalty Pharma shall return or destroy all documents, tapes or other media containing Confidential Information of GSK or TRC, as applicable, that remain in Royalty Pharma’s or its agents’ possession, except that Royalty Pharma (x) may keep one copy of the Confidential Information in its legal department files, solely for archival purposes to the extent required by law or regulation and (y) shall not be required to delete electronic back-ups made in the ordinary course of business. Any such archival copy or electronic back-ups shall be deemed to be the property of GSK or TRC, as applicable, shall not be accessed by Royalty Pharma or any of its agents except for legal or compliance purposes, and shall continue to be subject to the obligations of confidentiality and non-use herein indefinitely.

 

 

 

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Royalty Pharma shall have the right to disclose this letter or Confidential Information provided hereunder if, in the reasonable opinion of Royalty Pharma’s legal counsel, such disclosure is necessary to comply with the terms of this letter, or the requirements of any applicable law. To the full extent legally possible, Royalty Pharma shall notify GSK and TRC of its intent to make such disclosure pursuant to the provision of the preceding sentence sufficiently prior to making such disclosure so as to allow GSK or TRC, as applicable, adequate time to take whatever action GSK or TRC, as applicable, may deem to be appropriate to protect the confidentiality of the information. Royalty Pharma will cooperate reasonably with GSK’s or TRC’s, as applicable, efforts to protect the confidentiality of the information. If a protective order or other appropriate remedy is not obtained prior to the time such disclosure is required to be made, (i) Royalty Pharma will give advance written notice to GSK and TRC of the Confidential Information to be disclosed as far in advance as is legally permissible, (ii) following delivery of such written notice, such portion of the Confidential Information that is required to be so disclosed may be so disclosed without liability hereunder and (iii) Royalty Pharma shall use its reasonable best efforts to ensure that confidential treatment will be afforded to all Confidential Information that is so disclosed.

 

Royalty Pharma agrees that it is not entitled to rely on the accuracy or completeness of any Confidential Information and that GSK makes no express or implied representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of any Confidential Information. GSK is not required to provide any other consents or agreements unless it determines to do so in its sole discretion.

 

Given the nature of the Confidential Information, Royalty Pharma acknowledges that GSK would be irreparably damaged by a breach or threatened breach of this letter by the Royalty Pharma or its agents and that money damages are an inadequate remedy for an actual or threatened breach of this letter because of the difficulty of ascertaining the amount of damage that would be suffered. Therefore, without prejudice to the rights and remedies otherwise available to GSK, GSK shall be entitled, without the requirement of posting a bond or other security, to equitable relief, including an injunction or specific performance, in the event of any breach or threatened breach of this letter. Such remedy shall not be deemed to be an exclusive remedy, but shall be in addition to all other remedies available at law or equity.

 

This letter and all claims and causes of action (whether based in contract, tort or otherwise) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this letter or the negotiation, execution or performance thereof) shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to conflicts of law principles. Royalty Pharma hereby irrevocably and unconditionally (a) submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and Royalty Pharma hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees not to commence any such action, suit or proceeding except in such courts, (b) waives any objection to the laying of venue of any such action, suit or proceeding in any such courts and (c) waives and agrees not to plead or claim that any such action, suit or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. Royalty Pharma further agrees that service of any process, summons, notice or document by registered mail to its address set forth below shall be effective service of process for any action, suit or proceeding brought against it.

 

 

 

 

The obligations and prohibitions contained in this letter shall survive for seven (7) years.

 

Confidential Information shall not include any information or materials that Royalty Pharma can document with competent written proof: (i) were already known to Royalty Pharma (other than under an obligation of confidentiality), at the time of disclosure by TRC; (ii) were generally available to the public or otherwise part of the public domain at the time of its disclosure to Royalty Pharma other than as a result of a breach hereof; (iii) became generally available to the public or otherwise part of the public domain after its disclosure or development, as the case may be, and other than through any act or omission of Royalty Pharma in breach of its obligations under this letter; or (iv) were disclosed to Royalty Pharma, other than under an obligation of confidentiality, by a third party who had no obligation to GSK or TRC not to disclose such information to others.

c.During the Outer Years Period (as defined in the EPA), Theravance Biopharma, the Purchaser and GSK acknowledge and agree that the Collaboration Agreement as it relates to the Assigned Collaboration Products shall be enforced against GSK solely as contemplated by Schedule 5.11 of the EPA and the Purchaser hereby agrees that it shall not have an ability to exercise any right under the Collaboration Agreement, including to trigger an audit or to bring any claim to enforce the Collaboration Agreement as it relates to the Assigned Collaboration Products against GSK, except as directed by Theravance Biopharma pursuant to Schedule 5.11 of the EPA.

5.Transfer of Membership Interests. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 12.1 of the TRC LLC Agreement, and without limiting Section 2(a) hereof, from and after the Closing (irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs), the Purchaser may not directly or indirectly Transfer all or any portion of its Interests (as defined in the TRC LLC Agreement) with respect to the Class A Units, Class B Units or Class C Units (the “TRC Equity”) without the prior written consent of GSK; provided, that without the prior written consent of GSK, Purchaser (or any subsequent permitted holder of the TRC Equity) may Transfer the ownership of all of its then-owned TRC Equity to Royalty Pharma plc (or its permitted successors or assigns) or to any entity that is directly or indirectly a wholly-owned subsidiary of Royalty Pharma plc (or its permitted successors or assigns); provided, further, that Purchaser and its affiliates may also pledge, mortgage, hypothecate or encumber such TRC Equity with GSK’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). In addition, without the prior written consent of GSK, TRC shall not, except for the Units authorized in accordance with Sections 3.1 and 3.2 of the TRC LLC Agreement and Section 6 of this Agreement, issue, sell, deliver or transfer any Units or any other interests of any kind in TRC or any options, warrants, rights, calls, claims or other commitments (contingent or otherwise), conversion rights, rights of exchange or any other interests exchangeable for, convertible into or evidencing a right to subscribe for or purchase any Units. In addition, unless GSK provides prior written consent, the Purchaser shall ensure that, following the Closing, Royalty Pharma PLC (or any successor-in-interest thereto) retains direct or indirect beneficial ownership of 100% of the TRC Equity (excluding, during the period between the Closing and the Innoviva Closing, any Class A Units or Class C Units held by Innoviva or its Affiliates as of the date hereof). Any attempted Transfer, sale, issuance or delivery in violation of this Section 5 will be void ab initio and be deemed a breach of this Agreement.

 -5- 

 

 

7.Indirect Actions. Each Party hereto agrees that it shall not seek to indirectly accomplish that which it is not permitted to accomplish directly under this Agreement, and any such attempted circumvention will be void ab initio and be deemed a breach of this Agreement.

 

8.Agreed Covenants and Transfer Limitations.

 

a.GSK hereby agrees that the Purchaser and/or TRC may grant in favor of Theravance Biopharma the covenants set forth on Exhibit F hereto (the “TRC Pre-Agreed Covenants”).

 

b.Following the Closing (and irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs), the grant of covenants set forth on Exhibit G hereto (the “Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants”) with respect to any monetization of the Outer Years Royalty by Theravance Biopharma or its permitted transferees, successors and permitted assigns (as applicable) shall not constitute a violation of the Collaboration Agreement or this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Theravance Biopharma agrees that, as a condition to the granting of any such Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants, Theravance Biopharma shall obtain a certification from the original third party recipient of such Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants that it is not a Restricted Party.

 

c.A “Restricted Party” means any of Almirall, AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim, Chiesi, AbbVie, Merck, Mylan, Novartis, Sandoz, Teva and any other pharmaceutical or biotechnology company with a product either being developed or commercialized for the treatment of respiratory disease, and their respective Restricted Party Affiliates (as defined below).

 

d.A “Restricted Party Affiliate” with respect to any person means any other person, whether de jure or de facto, which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with such person for so long as such control exists, where “control” means the decision-making authority as to such other person and, further, where such control shall be presumed to exist where such other person owns more than fifty percent (50%) of the equity (or such lesser percentage which is the maximum allowed to be owned by a foreign corporation in a particular jurisdiction) having the power to vote on or direct the affairs of the entity.

 

e.The Parties expressly agree that no inference shall be drawn as to whether any other grant of any covenants constitutes an assignment under the Collaboration Agreement or a “Transfer” under this Agreement, the Collaboration Agreement or the TRC LLC Agreement from the fact of the agreements with respect to the grant of the Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants or the TRC Pre-Agreed Covenants. Without limiting the foregoing, GSK agrees that the Purchaser, Theravance Biopharma and TRC may seek GSK’s consent that granting covenants other than the Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants or the TRC Pre-Agreed Covenants under this Agreement would not violate the Collaboration Agreement and, provided that any such grant of covenants is subject to the conditions with respect to Restricted Parties set forth in this Section 5, GSK will not unreasonably withhold, condition or delay such consent.

 

9.Confidentiality.

 

a.Effective upon the Closing, following its receipt of the Confidential Information from GSK, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the EPA, the Purchaser agrees to provide, and is allowed by GSK hereunder to provide, a copy of such Confidential Information to the Theravance Biopharma Chief Financial Officer (or her/his management level designated employee in the Theravance Biopharma Finance Department).

b.Theravance Biopharma shall not disclose, cause or permit to be disclosed the Confidential Information to any third party or parties, subject to the exceptions contained in Sections 9(c) through 9(e) herein, without the prior written consent of both GSK and the Purchaser. Once any statement is approved for public disclosure by GSK and the Purchaser or information is otherwise made public in accordance with Section 9(d), any of the Parties may make a subsequent public disclosure of the contents of such statement or such information without further approval of any other Party.

 

c.Confidential Information may only be disclosed by Theravance Biopharma to its employees, directors, officers, external legal counsel and external accountants (collectively, the “Representatives”) who need to know the Confidential Information to enable Theravance Biopharma to prepare its periodic financial statements and related reports in a timely manner and to enforce its rights under this Agreement and/or the EPA; provided, that those to whom Confidential Information is disclosed shall be under obligations of confidentiality at least as restrictive as those of this Agreement. Theravance Biopharma agrees to enforce the confidentiality terms and provisions of this Agreement as to any of its Representatives who receives Confidential Information, and to be liable for breach of confidentiality obligations by any of its Representatives. The Purchaser will not have any responsibility or liability for any breach of this Section 9 by Theravance Biopharma or any breach by any of Theravance Biopharma’s Representatives of their respective confidentiality obligations.

 

d.Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the recipient of Confidential Information disclosed hereunder shall be under no duty to maintain the confidentiality of any such Confidential Information which recipient can demonstrate with competent evidence:

 -7- 

 

 

f.The term of the confidentiality obligations in this Section 9 begin on the date hereof and remain in effect indefinitely unless the Parties agree otherwise in writing.

 

g.This Section 9 grants no copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent or other intellectual property rights or licenses, express or implied, to any Party.

References in this Agreement to other agreements or documents shall refer to such agreements or documents as they may be amended as permitted hereby or by the EPA. Any provision of this Agreement may be amended if, and only if, such amendment is in writing and signed, by all of the Parties.

 

13.Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed, and the respective rights of the Parties determined, according to the substantive law of the State of Delaware notwithstanding the provisions governing conflict of laws under such Delaware law to the contrary. The Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of, and waive any objection to the laying of venue in, the U.S. federal and state court in the State of Delaware (collectively, the “Chosen Courts”) for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and agree not to commence any action, suit or proceeding related thereto except in a Chosen Court.

 

14.Remedies. It is further understood and agreed that money damages would not be a sufficient remedy for any breach of this Agreement by any Party and, in addition to all other remedies that a Party may have at law or in equity and without limiting any of the foregoing, each Party shall be entitled to equitable relief, including, without limitation, injunction and specific performance, as a remedy for any such breach and each Party hereby waives any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy. In addition, each Party to this Agreement is entering into this Agreement solely on its own behalf. Each such Party shall solely be severally liable for any breaches of this Agreement by such Party and in no event shall any Party be liable for breaches of this Agreement by any other Party hereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, from and after the Innoviva Closing, the Purchaser and TRC shall be jointly and severally liable for any breaches of this Agreement by the Purchaser or TRC.

In the event that the terms and conditions of this Agreement are materially altered as a result of the preceding sentences, the Parties shall renegotiate the terms and conditions of this Agreement in order to resolve any inequities. Nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted so as to require any Party to violate any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

This Agreement shall be binding on and, subject to the foregoing sentence, inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted transferees, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives.

 

17.Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one instrument.

(Strategic Alliance)

 

This TERMINATION AGREEMENT AND RELEASE, dated as of July 13, 2022 (this “Agreement”), is entered into by Glaxo Group Limited, a private company limited by shares registered under the laws of England and Wales (“GSK”), and Theravance Respiratory Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TRC”). GSK and TRC are referred to in this Agreement individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”.

 

WHEREAS, in 2014, Innoviva, Inc. (f/k/a Theravance, Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“Innoviva”) separated Theravance Biopharma, Inc. (“Theravance Biopharma”) into a separate and independent, publicly traded company from Innoviva (the “Separation”) through a pro rata dividend of Theravance Biopharma ordinary shares to Innoviva stockholders, and in connection with the Separation, Innoviva assigned to TRC that certain Strategic Alliance Agreement, dated as of March 30, 2004, as amended on September 13, 2004, February 11, 2005, February 8, 2006, February 27, 2006, February 27, 2009, June 22, 2009, July 16, 2010, October 3, 2011 and March 3, 2014, by and between Innoviva and GSK (as amended, the “Strategic Alliance Agreement”);

 

WHEREAS, (i) Theravance Biopharma, together with its affiliates, wish to transfer all of their respective equity interests in TRC to Royalty Pharma Investments 2019 ICAV, an Irish collective asset-management vehicle (the “Purchaser”), pursuant to that certain Equity Purchase and Funding Agreement, dated as of the date hereof (including the schedules and exhibits thereto, the “Theravance EPA”), by and between Theravance Biopharma and the Purchaser (the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Theravance EPA, the “Closing”), and (ii) Innoviva, together with its affiliates, wish to transfer all of their respective equity interests in TRC to the Purchaser pursuant to that certain Equity Purchase Agreement, dated as of the date hereof (including the schedules and exhibits thereto, the “Innoviva EPA”, and, together with the Theravance EPA, the “EPAs”), by and among Innoviva TRC Holdings LLC, the Purchaser and Innoviva (the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Innoviva EPA, the “Innoviva Closing”); and

 

WHEREAS, in connection with the transactions contemplated by the EPAs, TRC and GSK desire to terminate the Strategic Alliance Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, and release each other from certain claims.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the representations, covenants and agreements contained herein, the Parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

 

1.Termination. GSK and TRC hereby terminate the Strategic Alliance Agreement effective upon the Closing (irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs).

 

   

 

 

2.Release. Effective (a) with respect to the Initial Released Claims (as defined below), upon the Closing (and irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs), and (b) with respect to the Subsequent Released Claims (as defined below), upon the Innoviva Closing (provided that the Innoviva Closing occurs within three (3) business days of the Closing), each Party, on behalf of itself and each of its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, the “Releasing Parties”), hereby unconditionally and forever releases, waives and discharges all claims, actions, causes of action, choses in action, suits, debts, damages, dues, sums of money, accounts, reckonings, bonds, bills, specialties, controversies, variances, trespasses, judgments, remedies, rights of set-off, third-party claims, subrogation claims, contribution claims, reimbursement claims, indemnity claims, counterclaims, and crossclaims, whether known or Unknown Claims, liquidated or unliquidated, fixed or contingent, matured or unmatured, disputed or undisputed, whether direct, indirect, derivative, or otherwise, and whether arising in law, equity or otherwise (collectively, “Causes of Action”) that could have been, or may be, asserted by or on behalf of such Releasing Party against any other Party and its affiliates or subsidiaries and the respective current and former officers, managers, affiliates, subsidiaries, partners, directors, employees, agents, members, shareholders, securities holders, note holders, advisors and professionals (including any attorneys, accountants, consultants, financial advisors, investment bankers and other professionals retained by such persons) of such other parties and the affiliates and subsidiaries thereof, together with their respective successors and assigns, each solely in its capacity as such (collectively, the “Released Parties”), to the extent based on any act, omission, transaction, event, occurrence or facts or circumstances taking place, being omitted, existing or otherwise arising (i) prior to the Closing (the “Initial Released Claims”), or (ii) prior to the Innoviva Closing (the “Subsequent Released Claims”), and, in each case (i) and (ii), relating to the Strategic Alliance Agreement ((i) and (ii) collectively, the “Released Claims”).

 

“Unknown Claims” means claims which the Releasing Parties do not know or suspect to exist in their favor at the time of the release of the Released Parties, including any such claims which, if known by them might have affected their release of the Released Parties, or might have affected their decision(s) with respect to this Agreement. With respect to any and all Released Claims, the Releasing Parties stipulate and agree that they expressly waive, the provisions, rights, and benefits conferred by any law of any state or territory of the United States, or principle of common law, which is similar, comparable, or equivalent to California Civil Code §1542, which provides:

 

A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.

 

The Releasing Parties acknowledge that they may hereafter discover facts in addition to or different from those which they now know or believe to be true with respect to the subject matter of the Released Claims, but expressly fully, finally, and forever waive, compromise, settle, discharge, extinguish and release fully, finally, and forever, any and all Released Claims, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, contingent or non-contingent, whether or not concealed or hidden, which now exist, or heretofore have existed, upon any theory of law or equity now existing or coming into existence in the future, including, but not limited to, conduct which is negligent, intentional, with or without malice, or a breach of any duty, law or rule, without regard to the subsequent discovery or existence of such different or additional facts, legal theories, or authorities. The Releasing Parties acknowledge that the foregoing waiver was separately bargained for and is an essential element of this Agreement of which this release is a part.

 

3.Termination Date. This Agreement shall automatically terminate and have no further force or effect without any action by any of the Parties if the Theravance EPA shall have been terminated and the Closing shall not have occurred.

 

4.No Admission of Wrongdoing. Neither by offering to make, nor by making, this Agreement, do any of the Parties admit any failure of performance, wrongdoing, or violation of law. Neither this Agreement nor any of its terms may be used as an admission or introduced as evidence as to any issue of law or fact in any proceeding, suit or action, other than an action to enforce this Agreement.

 

5.Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the full and entire understanding and agreement between the Parties with regard to the subject hereof. References in this Agreement to other agreements or documents shall refer to such agreements or documents as they may be amended. Any provision of this Agreement may be amended or waived if, and only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and signed, by all of the Parties and by Theravance Biopharma.

 

   

 

 

6.Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed, and the respective rights of the Parties determined, according to the substantive law of the State of Delaware notwithstanding the provisions governing conflict of laws under such Delaware law to the contrary. The Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of, and waive any objection to the laying of venue in, the U.S. federal and state court in the State of Delaware (collectively, the “Chosen Courts”) for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and agree not to commence any action, suit or proceeding related thereto except in a Chosen Court.

 

7.Severability. In the event of the invalidity of any provisions of this Agreement or if this Agreement contains any gaps, the Parties agree that such invalidity or gap shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement. The Parties will replace an invalid provision or fill any gap with valid provisions which most closely approximate the purpose and economic effect of the invalid provision or, in case of a gap, the Parties’ presumed intentions. In the event that the terms and conditions of this Agreement are materially altered as a result of the preceding sentences, the Parties shall renegotiate the terms and conditions of this Agreement in order to resolve any inequities. Nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted so as to require any Party to violate any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

 

8.Third-Party Beneficiaries. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that each Party’s Released Parties are express third-party beneficiaries of the releases of such Released Parties and covenants not to sue such Released Parties contained in Section 2 of this Agreement and are entitled to enforce rights under such section to the same extent that such Released Parties could enforce such rights if they were a party to this Agreement. In addition, each Party acknowledges and agrees that Theravance Biopharma is an express third-party beneficiary to this Agreement and is entitled to enforce rights under this Agreement to the same extent that Theravance Biopharma could enforce such rights if it were a party to this Agreement. Except as provided in the preceding two sentences, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.

 

9.Assignment; Binding Effect. This Agreement may not be assigned by either Party without the prior written consent of the other Party to this Agreement; provided, however, that any Party may assign this Agreement to a successor to all or substantially all of the assets of such Party whether by merger, sale of stock, sale of assets or other similar transaction. This Agreement shall be binding on and, subject to the foregoing sentence, inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted transferees, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives.

 

10.Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one instrument.

Effective (x) with respect to the Innoviva Initial Released Claims (as defined below), upon the Closing (and irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs), and (y) with respect to the Innoviva Subsequent Released Claims (as defined below), upon the Innoviva Closing (provided the Innoviva Closing occurs within three (3) business days of the Closing), each of Innoviva and GSK, on behalf of itself and each of its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, the “Innoviva/GSK Releasing Parties”, and together with the Theravance Biopharma/GSK Releasing Parties, the “Releasing Parties”), hereby unconditionally and forever releases, waives and discharges all Causes of Action that could have been, or may be, asserted by or on behalf of such Innoviva/GSK Releasing Party against the other Innoviva/GSK Releasing Party and its affiliates or subsidiaries and the respective current and former officers, managers, affiliates, subsidiaries, partners, directors, employees, agents, members, shareholders, securities holders, note holders, advisors and professionals (including any attorneys, accountants, consultants, financial advisors, investment bankers and other professionals retained by such persons) of such other parties and the affiliates and subsidiaries thereof, together with their respective successors and assigns, each solely in its capacity as such (collectively, the “Innoviva/GSK Released Parties”, and together with the Theravance Biopharma/GSK Released Parties, the “Released Parties”), to the extent, in each case, based on any act, omission, transaction, event, occurrence or facts or circumstances taking place, being omitted, existing or otherwise arising prior to (i) the Closing (the “Innoviva Initial Released Claims”), or (ii) the Innoviva Closing (the “Innoviva Subsequent Released Claims”), and, in each case (i) and (ii), relating to (a) the Collaboration Agreement, (b) the Master Agreement, (c) the Extension Agreement, and (d) the EPAs, in each case including any and all related or ancillary agreements, certificates or documents ((i) and (ii) collectively, the “Innoviva Released Claims”, and together with the Theravance Released Claims, the “Released Claims”); provided, however, that (i) claims (if any) related to the incorrect reporting, calculation, or payment of royalties payable by GSK to Innoviva under the Collaboration Agreement on Net Sales of Retained Products (as defined in that certain Limited Liability Company Agreement of TRC (as amended, the “TRC LLC Agreement”)) in calendar year 2021 (regardless of when such payments are recognized, due or paid, provided that such Net Sales occurred in calendar year 2021) shall be handled in accordance with the immediately following paragraph below (such claims described in clause (i) of this proviso are referred to herein as “2021 Claims”) and (ii) claims (if any) related to the incorrect reporting, calculation or payment of royalties payable by GSK to Innoviva under the Collaboration Agreement on Net Sales of Retained Products for the period on or after January 1, 2022 (regardless of when such payments are recognized, due or paid) shall not be deemed Innoviva Released Claims.

During the period from the Closing until the date that is thirty (30) days following the Closing, Innoviva may elect to exercise its rights under Section 6.10 of the Collaboration Agreement to audit GSK with respect to 2021 Claims. If such election is made, GSK shall provide information and reasonably cooperate with Innoviva and its representatives in connection with such audit in each case in the manner set forth in the Collaboration Agreement and consistent with the prior audit practices under the Collaboration Agreement. Subject to GSK’s compliance in all material respects with the foregoing, Innoviva shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such audit to be completed within 120 days of the Closing; it being understood and agreed that such 120 day period shall be tolled for any period of time in which GSK fails to comply in any material respect with its cooperation and access obligations (such 120 day period, as may be extended in accordance with the foregoing, the “Audit Period”). At the conclusion of the Audit Period, Innoviva shall provide to GSK a written description (an “Audit Notice”) in reasonable detail of any Cause of Action it believes it has against GSK with respect to the 2021 Claims. To the extent that a Cause of Action is identified on such notice, such Cause of Action (those Causes of Action deriving from it) shall not be deemed an Innoviva Released Claim hereunder and Innoviva shall have all rights and remedies available to it under the Collaboration Agreement, applicable law or otherwise in respect thereof. If Innoviva does not exercise its audit right during the 30 day period identified above or does not deliver an Audit Notice within the time specified above, all 2021 Claims shall be deemed Released Claims and Innoviva may not exercise its right to audit GSK pursuant to Section 6.10 of the Collaboration Agreement or otherwise with respect to any period prior to January 1, 2022. Any Cause of Action not set forth on the Audit Notice shall be deemed a Released Claim. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein shall affect Innoviva’s rights to audit in accordance with Section 6.10 of the Collaboration Agreement 2022 or any year thereafter in respect of Retained Products.

 

“Unknown Claims” means claims which the Releasing Parties do not know or suspect to exist in their favor at the time of the release of the Released Parties, including any such claims which, if known by them might have affected their release of the Released Parties, or might have affected their decision(s) with respect to this Agreement. With respect to any and all Released Claims, the Releasing Parties stipulate and agree that they expressly waive, the provisions, rights, and benefits conferred by any law of any state or territory of the United States, or principle of common law, which is similar, comparable, or equivalent to California Civil Code §1542, which provides:

 

   

 

 

A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.

 

The Releasing Parties acknowledge that they may hereafter discover facts in addition to or different from those which they now know or believe to be true with respect to the subject matter of the Released Claims, but expressly fully, finally, and forever waive, compromise, settle, discharge, extinguish and release fully, finally, and forever, any and all Released Claims, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, contingent or non-contingent, whether or not concealed or hidden, which now exist, or heretofore have existed, upon any theory of law or equity now existing or coming into existence in the future, including, but not limited to, conduct which is negligent, intentional, with or without malice, or a breach of any duty, law or rule, without regard to the subsequent discovery or existence of such different or additional facts, legal theories, or authorities. The Releasing Parties acknowledge that the foregoing waiver was separately bargained for and is an essential element of this Agreement of which this release is a part.

 

3.Termination Date. This Agreement shall automatically terminate and have no further force or effect without any action by any of the Parties if the Theravance EPA shall have been terminated and the Closing shall not have occurred.

 

4.No Admission of Wrongdoing. Neither by offering to make, nor by making, this Agreement, do any of the Parties admit any failure of performance, wrongdoing, or violation of law. Neither this Agreement nor any of its terms may be used as an admission or introduced as evidence as to any issue of law or fact in any proceeding, suit or action, other than an action to enforce this Agreement.

 

5.Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the full and entire understanding and agreement among the Parties with regard to the subjects hereof and thereof. References in this Agreement to other agreements or documents shall refer to such agreements or documents as they may be amended. Any provision of this Agreement may be amended or waived if, and only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and signed, by all of the Parties.

 

6.Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed, and the respective rights of the Parties determined, according to the substantive law of the State of Delaware notwithstanding the provisions governing conflict of laws under such Delaware law to the contrary. The Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of, and waive any objection to the laying of venue in, the U.S. federal and state court in the State of Delaware (collectively, the “Chosen Courts”) for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and agree not to commence any action, suit or proceeding related thereto except in a Chosen Court.

 

   

 

 

7.Severability. In the event of the invalidity of any provisions of this Agreement or if this Agreement contains any gaps, the Parties agree that such invalidity or gap shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement. The Parties will replace an invalid provision or fill any gap with valid provisions which most closely approximate the purpose and economic effect of the invalid provision or, in case of a gap, the Parties’ presumed intentions. In the event that the terms and conditions of this Agreement are materially altered as a result of the preceding sentences, the Parties shall renegotiate the terms and conditions of this Agreement in order to resolve any inequities. Nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted so as to require any Party to violate any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

 

8.Third-Party Beneficiaries. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that each Party’s Released Parties are express third-party beneficiaries of the releases of such Released Parties and covenants not to sue such Released Parties contained in Section 2 of this Agreement and are entitled to enforce rights under such section to the same extent that such Released Parties could enforce such rights if they were a party to this Agreement. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement.

 

9.Assignment; Binding Effect. This Agreement may not be assigned by any Party without the prior written consent of the other Parties to this Agreement; provided, however, that any Party may assign this Agreement to a successor to all or substantially all of the assets of such Party whether by merger, sale of stock, sale of assets or other similar transaction. This Agreement shall be binding on and, subject to the foregoing sentence, inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted transferees, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives.

 

10.Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one instrument.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the representations, covenants and agreements contained herein, the Parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

GSK shall not be required to have more than one (1) representative attend each JSC meeting provided that such representative is reasonably knowledgeable and informed regarding the commercialization and intellectual property protection of the Retained Products. Innoviva may have up to three (3) representatives attend each JSC meeting. The JSC’s purpose and responsibility will be to review at such meeting the sales performance, and one-year sales forecasts for each Retained Product in each Major Market Country and in all other countries in the world as a group (and the material related assumptions used in developing such forecasts). Through its representative on the JSC, GSK will also provide an annual update on major developments (if any) in the patent protection for the Retained Products.”

i.The following sentence of Section 6.3.1 of the Collaboration Agreement shall be deleted.

(c) In addition to the Net Sales Reports, GSK shall provide a sales report to Innoviva within eight (8) Business Days of the end of each Calendar Quarter, which shall contain estimated Net Sales in the Territory of each Retained Product reported in US dollars, on a worldwide (i.e., not Country-by-Country) basis. This report will also specify the estimated Net Sales in the United States and the estimated aggregated Net Sales in the Territory outside the United States during such Calendar Quarter.”

24.            Severability.

2.The Purchaser shall, and shall cause Theravance Respiratory Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TRC”) (including its successors and assigns), to, comply with each of its obligations under that certain Collaboration Agreement, dated as of November 14, 2002, as amended on April 11, 2006 and March 3, 2014, by and between Innoviva, Inc.

3.The Purchaser shall not, and shall cause TRC (including its successors and assigns) not to, take any action or fail to take any action that breaches or would reasonably be expected to result in a breach of TRC’s obligations under the Collaboration Agreement in a manner that gives or would reasonably be expected to give GSK the right to terminate the Collaboration Agreement in whole or in part with respect to the Assigned Collaboration Products (as defined in that certain Limited Liability Company Agreement of TRC attached as Exhibit E to the EPA);

 

4.The Purchaser shall, and shall cause TRC (including its successors and assigns) to, enforce the Collaboration Agreement to the extent that the failure to do so has or would reasonably be expected to have an adverse effect in any material respect on the amount, duration, timing or manner of payment of the Outer Years Royalty (as defined in the EPA), or the rights of Theravance Biopharma to monetize the Outer Years Royalty or the rights or obligations relating thereto under the Collaboration Agreement (the “Related Rights”); provided, however, that prior to the Outer Years Commencement Date (as defined in the EPA), the Purchaser’s or TRC’s good faith determination that GSK is complying with its obligations under the Collaboration Agreement, including with respect to the Outer Years Royalty (which determination, if made in good faith, is not otherwise subject to challenge under this clause 4 if the Purchaser or TRC, in making such determination, acted on an informed basis in a manner that is reasonable for a Person (as defined in the EPA) who is the sole owner of the entire TRC Royalty (as defined in the EPA), including the Outer Years Royalty), shall be deemed to be full compliance with this clause 4;

 

5.The Purchaser shall not, and shall cause TRC (including its successors and assigns) not to, amend, modify, supplement, cancel, terminate or grant any consent or written waiver under the Collaboration Agreement (or take any other action having the effect of the foregoing, or agree (whether explicitly or implicitly) to do any of the foregoing), in each case, to the extent that such action or agreement has or would reasonably be expected to have an adverse effect in any material respect on the amount, duration, timing or manner of payment of the Outer Years Royalty, or the rights of Theravance Biopharma to monetize the Outer Years Royalty or the Related Rights;

 

6.The Purchaser shall not, and shall cause TRC (including its successors and assigns) not to, take any action (or knowingly fail to take any action) to adversely impact, delay, forgive, release or compromise any of the royalty or other payment obligations under the Collaboration Agreement, in each case, to the extent that such action (or knowingly failure to take action) has or would reasonably be expected to have an adverse effect in any material respect on the amount, duration, timing or manner of payment of the Outer Years Royalty, or the rights of Theravance Biopharma to monetize the Outer Years Royalty; and

 

7.The Purchaser shall not, and shall cause TRC (including its successors and assigns) not to, transfer its interests with respect to the Assigned Collaboration Products and the TRC Royalty to any Person unless such Person agrees in writing to be bound by the EPA.

The Addressee named in the First Schedule

 

[date]

 

Theravance Biopharma, Inc.

 

We have acted as counsel as to Cayman Islands law to Theravance Biopharma, Inc. (the "Company") in connection with the entry by the Company into the Transaction Documents (as defined below).

 

1Documents Reviewed

 

We have reviewed originals, copies or conformed copies of the following documents:

 

1.1The certificate of incorporation dated 29 July 2013 and the amended and restated memorandum and articles of association of the Company adopted on 28 April 2014 (the "Memorandum and Articles").

 

1.2The minutes (the "Minutes") of the meeting of the board of directors of the Company held on [date] (the "Meeting") and the corporate records of the Company maintained at its registered office in the Cayman Islands (including, without limitation, the register of directors and officers of the Company).

 

1.3A certificate of good standing with respect to the Company issued by the Registrar of Companies (the "Certificate of Good Standing").

 

1.4A certificate from a director of the Company a copy of which is attached to this opinion letter (the "Director's Certificate").

 

1.5The transaction documents listed in the Second Schedule (the "Transaction Documents").

 

2Assumptions

 

The following opinions are given only as to, and based on, circumstances and matters of fact existing and known to us on the date of this opinion letter. These opinions only relate to the laws of the Cayman Islands which are in force on the date of this opinion letter. In giving the following opinions, we have relied (without further verification) upon the completeness and accuracy, as at the date of this opinion letter, of the Director's Certificate and the Certificate of Good Standing. We have also relied upon the following assumptions, which we have not independently verified:

 

2.1The Transaction Documents have been or will be authorised and duly executed and unconditionally delivered by or on behalf of all relevant parties in accordance with all relevant laws (other than, with respect to the Company, the laws of the Cayman Islands).

 

2.2The Transaction Documents are, or will be, legal, valid, binding and enforceable against all relevant parties in accordance with their terms under the laws of the State of New York (the "Relevant Law") and all other relevant laws (other than, with respect to the Company, the laws of the Cayman Islands).

 

 

 

 

2.3The choice of the Relevant Law as the governing law of the Transaction Documents has been made in good faith and would be regarded as a valid and binding selection which will be upheld by any New York State Court or Federal Court of the United States of America sitting in New York County, New York and any Appellate Court thereof (the "Relevant Jurisdiction") and any other relevant jurisdiction (other than the Cayman Islands) as a matter of the Relevant Law and all other relevant laws (other than the laws of the Cayman Islands).

 

2.4The Transaction Documents have been duly executed, dated and unconditionally delivered by all parties thereto and have not been amended, varied, supplemented or terminated since their execution. The person who has executed and delivered the Transaction Documents for and on behalf of the Company is a Director of the Company or an Officer of the Company.

 

2.5Copies of documents, conformed copies or drafts of documents provided to us are true and complete copies of, or in the final forms of, the originals, and translations of documents provided to us are complete and accurate.

 

2.6All signatures, initials and seals are genuine.

 

2.7The capacity, power, authority and legal right of all parties under all relevant laws and regulations (other than, with respect to the Company, the laws and regulations of the Cayman Islands) to enter into, execute, unconditionally deliver and perform their respective obligations under the Transaction Documents.

 

2.8There is no contractual or other prohibition or restriction (other than as arising under Cayman Islands law) binding on the Company prohibiting or restricting it from entering into and performing its obligations under the Transaction Documents.

 

2.9No monies paid to or for the account of any party under the Transaction Documents or any property received or disposed of by any party to the Transaction Documents in each case in connection with the Transaction Documents or the consummation of the transactions contemplated thereby represent or will represent proceeds of criminal conduct or criminal property or terrorist property (as defined in the Proceeds of Crime Act (As Revised) and the Terrorism Act (As Revised), respectively).

 

2.10The Company has not entered into any mortgages or charges over its property or assets other than those entered in the register of mortgages and charges of the Company, or as contemplated by the Transaction Documents.

 

2.11There is nothing under any law (other than the laws of the Cayman Islands) which would or might affect the opinions set out below. Specifically, we have made no independent investigation of the Relevant Law.

 

2.12The Court Register constitutes a complete record of the proceedings before the Grand Court as at the time of the Litigation Search (as those terms are defined below).

 

2.13None of the parties to the Transaction Documents (other than the Company) is a company incorporated, or a partnership, limited liability company or a foreign company or partnership registered, under applicable Cayman Islands law and all the activities of such parties in relation to the Transaction Documents and any transactions entered into thereunder have not been and will not be carried on through a place of business in the Cayman Islands.

3Opinions

 

Based upon, and subject to, the foregoing assumptions and the qualifications set out below, and having regard to such legal considerations as we deem relevant, we are of the opinion that:

 

3.1The Company has been duly incorporated as an exempted company with limited liability and is validly existing and in good standing with the Registrar of Companies under the laws of the Cayman Islands.

 

3.2The Company has all requisite power and authority under the Memorandum and Articles to enter into, execute and perform its obligations under the Transaction Documents.

 

3.3The execution and delivery of the Transaction Documents do not, and the performance by the Company of its obligations under the Transaction Documents will not, conflict with or result in a breach of any of the terms or provisions of the Memorandum and Articles or any law, public rule or regulation applicable to the Company currently in force in the Cayman Islands.

 

3.4The execution, delivery and performance of the Transaction Documents have been duly authorised by and on behalf of the Company and the Transaction Documents have been duly executed and delivered on behalf of the Company and constitute the legal, valid and binding obligations of the Company enforceable in accordance with their terms.

 

3.5No authorisations, consents, approvals, licences, validations or exemptions are required by law from any governmental authorities or agencies or other official bodies in the Cayman Islands in connection with:

 

(a)the execution, creation or delivery of the Transaction Documents by and on behalf of the Company;

 

(b)subject to the payment of the appropriate stamp duty, enforcement of the Transaction Documents against the Company; or

 

(c)the performance by the Company of its obligations under the Transaction Documents.

 

3.6No taxes, fees or charges (other than stamp duty as set out in paragraph 4.3) are payable (either by direct assessment or withholding) to the government or other taxing authority in the Cayman Islands under the laws of the Cayman Islands in respect of:

 

(a)the execution or delivery of the Transaction Documents;

 

(b)the enforcement of the Transaction Documents; or

 

(c)payments made under, or pursuant to, the Transaction Documents.

 

The Cayman Islands currently has no form of income, corporate or capital gains tax and no estate duty, inheritance tax or gift tax.

 

3.7The courts of the Cayman Islands will observe and give effect to the choice of the Relevant Law as the governing law of the Transaction Documents.

 

 3

 

 

3.8Based solely on our search of the Register of Writs and Other Originating Process (the "Court Register") maintained by the Clerk of the Court of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands from the date of incorporation of the Company to the close of business (Cayman Islands time) on [date] (the "Litigation Search"), the Court Register disclosed no writ, originating summons, originating motion, petition (including any winding-up petition), counterclaim nor third party notice ("Originating Process") nor any amended Originating Process pending before the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands, in which the Company is identified as a defendant or respondent.

 

3.9Although there is no statutory enforcement in the Cayman Islands of judgments obtained in the Relevant Jurisdiction, a judgment obtained in such jurisdiction will be recognised and enforced in the courts of the Cayman Islands at common law, without any re-examination of the merits of the underlying dispute, by an action commenced on the foreign judgment debt in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands, provided such judgment:

 

(a)is given by a foreign court of competent jurisdiction;

 

(b)imposes on the judgment debtor a liability to pay a liquidated sum for which the judgment has been given;

 

(c)is final;

 

(d)is not in respect of taxes, a fine or a penalty; and

 

(e)was not obtained in a manner and is not of a kind the enforcement of which is contrary to natural justice or the public policy of the Cayman Islands.

 

3.10It is not necessary to ensure the legality, validity, enforceability or admissibility in evidence of the Transaction Documents that any document be filed, recorded or enrolled with any governmental authority or agency or any official body in the Cayman Islands.

 

3.11None of the parties to the Transaction Documents (other than the Company) is or will be treated as resident, domiciled or carrying on or transacting business in the Cayman Islands solely by reason of the negotiation, preparation or execution of the Transaction Documents.

 

3.12None of the parties to the Transaction Documents (other than the Company) will be required to be licensed, qualified, or otherwise entitled to carry on business in the Cayman Islands in order to enforce their respective rights under the Transaction Documents, or as a consequence of the execution, delivery and performance of the Transaction Documents.

 

4Qualifications

 

The opinions expressed above are subject to the following qualifications:

 

4.1The obligations assumed by the Company under the Transaction Documents will not necessarily be enforceable in all circumstances in accordance with their terms. In particular:

 

(a)enforcement may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, liquidation, reorganisation, readjustment of debts or moratorium or other laws of general application relating to, protecting or affecting the rights of creditors and/or contributories;

 

(b)enforcement may be limited by general principles of equity. For example, equitable remedies such as specific performance may not be available, inter alia, where damages are considered to be an adequate remedy;

 

 4

 

 

(c)some claims may become barred under relevant statutes of limitation or may be or become subject to defences of set off, counterclaim, estoppel and similar defences;

 

(d)where obligations are to be performed in a jurisdiction outside the Cayman Islands, they may not be enforceable in the Cayman Islands to the extent that performance would be illegal under the laws of that jurisdiction;

 

(e)the courts of the Cayman Islands have jurisdiction to give judgment in the currency of the relevant obligation and statutory rates of interest payable upon judgments will vary according to the currency of the judgment. If the Company becomes insolvent and is made subject to a liquidation proceeding, the courts of the Cayman Islands will require all debts to be proved in a common currency, which is likely to be the "functional currency" of the Company determined in accordance with applicable accounting principles. Currency indemnity provisions have not been tested, so far as we are aware, in the courts of the Cayman Islands;

 

(f)arrangements that constitute penalties will not be enforceable;

 

(g)enforcement may be prevented by reason of fraud, coercion, duress, undue influence, misrepresentation, public policy or mistake or limited by the doctrine of frustration of contracts;

 

(h)provisions imposing confidentiality obligations may be overridden by compulsion of applicable law or the requirements of legal and/or regulatory process;

 

(i)the courts of the Cayman Islands may decline to exercise jurisdiction in relation to substantive proceedings brought under or in relation to the Transaction Documents in matters where they determine that such proceedings may be tried in a more appropriate forum;

 

(j)any provision in a Transaction Document which is governed by Cayman Islands law purporting to impose obligations on a person who is not a party to such Transaction Document (a "third party") is unenforceable against that third party. Any provision in a Transaction Document which is governed by Cayman Islands law purporting to grant rights to a third party is unenforceable by that third party, except to the extent that such Transaction Document expressly provides that the third party may, in its own right, enforce such rights (subject to and in accordance with the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act (As Revised));

 

(k)any provision of a Transaction Document which is governed by Cayman Islands law which expresses any matter to be determined by future agreement may be void or unenforceable;

 

(l)we reserve our opinion as to the enforceability of the relevant provisions of the Transaction Documents to the extent that they purport to grant exclusive jurisdiction as there may be circumstances in which the courts of the Cayman Islands would accept jurisdiction notwithstanding such provisions;

 

(m)a company cannot, by agreement or in its articles of association, restrict the exercise of a statutory power and there is doubt as to the enforceability of any provision in the Transaction Documents whereby the Company covenants to restrict the exercise of powers specifically given to it under the Companies Act (As Revised) (the "Companies Act"), including, without limitation, the power to increase its authorised share capital, amend its memorandum and articles of association or present a petition to a Cayman Islands court for an order to wind up the Company; and

 

 5

 

 

(n)if the Company becomes subject to Part XVIIA of the Companies Act, enforcement or performance of any provision in the Transaction Documents which relates, directly or indirectly, to an interest in the Company constituting shares, voting rights or director appointment rights in the Company may be prohibited or restricted if any such relevant interest is or becomes subject to a restrictions notice issued under the Companies Act.

 

4.2Applicable court fees will be payable in respect of the enforcement of the Transaction Documents.

 

4.3Cayman Islands stamp duty may be payable if the original Transaction Documents are brought to or executed in the Cayman Islands.

 

4.4To maintain the Company in good standing with the Registrar of Companies under the laws of the Cayman Islands, annual filing fees must be paid and returns made to the Registrar of Companies within the time frame prescribed by law.

 

4.5The Company must make an entry in its register of mortgages and charges in respect of all mortgages and charges created under the Transaction Documents in order to comply with section 54 of the Companies Act; failure by the Company to comply with this requirement does not operate to invalidate any mortgage or charge though it may be in the interests of the secured parties that the Company should comply with the statutory requirements.

 

4.6The obligations of the Company may be subject to restrictions pursuant to United Nations and United Kingdom sanctions extended to the Cayman Islands by Orders of Her Majesty in Council and sanctions imposed by Cayman Islands authorities, under Cayman Islands legislation.

 

4.7A certificate, determination, calculation or designation of any party to the Transaction Documents as to any matter provided therein might be held by a Cayman Islands court not to be conclusive final and binding if, for example, it could be shown to have an unreasonable or arbitrary basis, or in the event of manifest error.

 

4.8The Litigation Search of the Court Register would not reveal, amongst other things, an Originating Process filed with the Grand Court which, pursuant to the Grand Court Rules or best practice of the Clerk of the Courts' office, should have been entered in the Court Register but was not in fact entered in the Court Register (properly or at all), or any Originating Process which has been placed under seal or anonymised (whether by order of the Court or pursuant to the practice of the Clerk of the Courts' office).

 

4.9In principle the courts of the Cayman Islands will award costs and disbursements in litigation in accordance with the relevant contractual provisions but there remains some uncertainty as to the way in which the rules of the Grand Court will be applied in practice. Whilst it is clear that costs incurred prior to judgment can be recovered in accordance with the contract, it is likely that post-judgment costs (to the extent recoverable at all) will be subject to taxation in accordance with Grand Court Rules Order 62.

 

4.10We reserve our opinion as to the extent to which the courts of the Cayman Islands would, in the event of any relevant illegality or invalidity, sever the relevant provisions of the Transaction Documents and enforce the remainder of the Transaction Documents or the transaction of which such provisions form a part, notwithstanding any express provisions in the Transaction Documents in this regard.

 

 6

 

 

4.11We express no opinion as to the meaning, validity or effect of any references to foreign (i.e. non-Cayman Islands) statutes, rules, regulations, codes, judicial authority or any other promulgations and any references to them in the Transaction Documents.

 

We express no view as to the commercial terms of the Transaction Documents or whether such terms represent the intentions of the parties and make no comment with regard to warranties or representations that may be made by the Company.

 

We express no opinion with respect to any direct or indirect acquisition, disposal or exercise of rights by the Company of or in respect of any interest in any property governed by the laws of or situated in the Cayman Islands.

 

The opinions in this opinion letter are strictly limited to the matters contained in the opinions section above and do not extend to any other matters. We have not been asked to review and we therefore have not reviewed any of the ancillary documents relating to the Transaction Documents and express no opinion or observation upon the terms of any such document.

 

This opinion letter is addressed to and for the benefit solely of the addressee and may not be relied upon by any other person for any purpose, nor may it be transmitted or disclosed (in whole or part) to any other person without our prior written consent.

 

Yours faithfully

Theravance Biopharma, Inc. (the "Company")

 

I, the undersigned, being a director of the Company, am aware that you are being asked to provide an opinion letter (the "Opinion") in relation to certain aspects of Cayman Islands law. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalised terms used in this certificate have the respective meanings given to them in the Opinion. I hereby certify that:

 

1The Memorandum and Articles remain in full force and effect and are unamended.

 

2The Minutes are a true and correct record of the proceedings of the Meeting, which was duly convened and held, and at which a quorum was present throughout, in each case, in the manner prescribed in the Memorandum and Articles. The resolutions set out in the Minutes were duly passed in the manner prescribed in the Memorandum and Articles (including, without limitation, with respect to the disclosure of interests (if any) by directors of the Company) and have not been amended, varied or revoked in any respect.

 

3The shareholders of the Company (the "Shareholders") have not restricted the powers of the directors of the Company in any way.

 

4The directors of the Company at the date of the Meeting and at the date of this certificate were and are as follows: Rick E. Winningham, Burton G. Malkiel, Ph.D., William D. Young, Eran Broshy, Dean Mitchell, Susan M. Molineaux, Ph.D., Donal O'Connor, Laurie Smaldone Alsup and Deepika R. Pakianathan, Ph.D.

 

5The minute book and corporate records of the Company as maintained at its registered office in the Cayman Islands and made available to you are complete and accurate in all material respects, and all minutes and resolutions filed therein represent a complete and accurate record of all meetings of the Shareholders and directors (or any committee thereof) of the Company (duly convened in accordance with the Memorandum and Articles) and all resolutions passed at the meetings or passed by written resolution or consent (duly passed in the manner prescribed in the Memorandum and Articles), as the case may be.

 

6Prior to, at the time of, and immediately following the execution of the Transaction Documents the Company was, or will be, able to pay its debts as they fell, or fall, due and has entered, or will enter, into the Transaction Documents for proper value and not with an intention to defraud or wilfully defeat an obligation owed to any creditor or with a view to giving a creditor a preference.

b.Following the Closing (and irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs), the grant of covenants set forth on Exhibit G hereto (the “Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants”) with respect to any monetization of the Outer Years Royalty by Theravance Biopharma or its permitted transferees, successors and permitted assigns (as applicable) shall not constitute a violation of the Collaboration Agreement or this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Theravance Biopharma agrees that, as a condition to the granting of any such Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants, Theravance Biopharma shall obtain a certification from the original third party recipient of such Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants that it is not a Restricted Party.

c.A “Restricted Party” means any of Almirall, AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim, Chiesi, AbbVie, Merck, Mylan, Novartis, Sandoz, Teva and any other pharmaceutical or biotechnology company with a product either being developed or commercialized for the treatment of respiratory disease, and their respective Restricted Party Affiliates (as defined below).

d.A “Restricted Party Affiliate” with respect to any person means any other person, whether de jure or de facto, which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with such person for so long as such control exists, where “control” means the decision-making authority as to such other person and, further, where such control shall be presumed to exist where such other person owns more than fifty percent (50%) of the equity (or such lesser percentage which is the maximum allowed to be owned by a foreign corporation in a particular jurisdiction) having the power to vote on or direct the affairs of the entity.

e.The Parties expressly agree that no inference shall be drawn as to whether any other grant of any covenants constitutes an assignment under the Collaboration Agreement or a “Transfer” under this Agreement, the Collaboration Agreement or the TRC LLC Agreement from the fact of the agreements with respect to the grant of the Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants or the TRC Pre-Agreed Covenants. Without limiting the foregoing, GSK agrees that the Purchaser, Theravance Biopharma and TRC may seek GSK’s consent that granting covenants other than the Theravance Pre-Agreed Covenants or the TRC Pre-Agreed Covenants under this Agreement would not violate the Collaboration Agreement and, provided that any such grant of covenants is subject to the conditions with respect to Restricted Parties set forth in this Section 5, GSK will not unreasonably withhold, condition or delay such consent.

9.Confidentiality.

a.Effective upon the Closing, following its receipt of the Confidential Information from GSK, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the EPA, the Purchaser agrees to provide, and is allowed by GSK hereunder to provide, a copy of such Confidential Information to the Theravance Biopharma Chief Financial Officer (or her/his management level designated employee in the Theravance Biopharma Finance Department). The Purchaser will ensure that all Confidential Information provided to Theravance Biopharma is clearly labeled as “CONFIDENTIAL.”

-6-

b.Theravance Biopharma shall not disclose, cause or permit to be disclosed the Confidential Information to any third party or parties, subject to the exceptions contained in Sections 9(c) through 9(e) herein, without the prior written consent of both GSK and the Purchaser. Once any statement is approved for public disclosure by GSK and the Purchaser or information is otherwise made public in accordance with Section 9(d), any of the Parties may make a subsequent public disclosure of the contents of such statement or such information without further approval of any other Party.

c.Confidential Information may only be disclosed by Theravance Biopharma to its employees, directors, officers, external legal counsel and external accountants (collectively, the “Representatives”) who need to know the Confidential Information to enable Theravance Biopharma to prepare its periodic financial statements and related reports in a timely manner and to enforce its rights under this Agreement and/or the EPA; provided, that those to whom Confidential Information is disclosed shall be under obligations of confidentiality at least as restrictive as those of this Agreement. Theravance Biopharma agrees to enforce the confidentiality terms and provisions of this Agreement as to any of its Representatives who receives Confidential Information, and to be liable for breach of confidentiality obligations by any of its Representatives. The Purchaser will not have any responsibility or liability for any breach of this Section 9 by Theravance Biopharma or any breach by any of Theravance Biopharma’s Representatives of their respective confidentiality obligations.

d.Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the recipient of Confidential Information disclosed hereunder shall be under no duty to maintain the confidentiality of any such Confidential Information which recipient can demonstrate with competent evidence:

i.At the time of disclosure is within the public domain;

ii.After disclosure becomes a part of the public domain through no fault, act or failure to act, error, effort or breach of this Agreement by the recipient;

iii.Is known to the recipient (without restriction on possessing and disclosing such Confidential Information) at the time of disclosure;

iv.Is discovered by the recipient independently of any disclosure by the disclosing party; or

v.Is obtained from a third party who to the recipient’s actual knowledge has no restriction on possessing and disclosing such Confidential Information.

e.If Theravance Biopharma or the Purchaser is expressly ordered by any federal or state agency, court or other body to disclose Confidential Information to such federal or state agency, court or other body, such Party may make such disclosure; provided, however, that, to the extent legally permissible and reasonably practicable, such Party shall notify the other Parties so as to provide or afford any other Party the opportunity to obtain such protective orders or other relief as the compelling court or other entity may grant.

-7-

f.The term of the confidentiality obligations in this Section 9 begin on the date hereof and remain in effect indefinitely unless the Parties agree otherwise in writing.

g.This Section 9 grants no copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent or other intellectual property rights or licenses, express or implied, to any Party.

10.Accession. The Purchaser shall cause TRC to deliver to each of the Parties a duly executed copy of the Accession Agreement immediately following the Innoviva Closing.

11.Termination Date. This Agreement shall automatically terminate and have no further force or effect without any action by any of the Parties if the EPA shall have been terminated and the Closing shall not have occurred.

12.Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the exhibits hereto, together with the Collaboration Agreement, the EPA, the Master Agreement, that certain Confidentiality Agreement, dated as of February 22, 2018, by and among GSK, Innoviva and Theravance Biopharma, and that certain letter agreement, dated as of April 11, 2022, by and between GSK and the Purchaser, constitute the full and entire understanding and agreement among the Parties with regard to the subjects hereof and thereof. References in this Agreement to other agreements or documents shall refer to such agreements or documents as they may be amended as permitted hereby or by the EPA. Any provision of this Agreement may be amended if, and only if, such amendment is in writing and signed, by all of the Parties.

13.Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed, and the respective rights of the Parties determined, according to the substantive law of the State of Delaware notwithstanding the provisions governing conflict of laws under such Delaware law to the contrary. The Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of, and waive any objection to the laying of venue in, the U.S. federal and state court in the State of Delaware (collectively, the “Chosen Courts”) for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and agree not to commence any action, suit or proceeding related thereto except in a Chosen Court.

14.Remedies. It is further understood and agreed that money damages would not be a sufficient remedy for any breach of this Agreement by any Party and, in addition to all other remedies that a Party may have at law or in equity and without limiting any of the foregoing, each Party shall be entitled to equitable relief, including, without limitation, injunction and specific performance, as a remedy for any such breach and each Party hereby waives any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy. In addition, each Party to this Agreement is entering into this Agreement solely on its own behalf. Each such Party shall solely be severally liable for any breaches of this Agreement by such Party and in no event shall any Party be liable for breaches of this Agreement by any other Party hereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, from and after the Innoviva Closing, the Purchaser and TRC shall be jointly and severally liable for any breaches of this Agreement by the Purchaser or TRC.

15.Severability. In the event of the invalidity of any provisions of this Agreement or if this Agreement contains any gaps, the Parties agree that such invalidity or gap shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement. The Parties will replace an invalid provision or fill any gap with valid provisions which most closely approximate the purpose and economic effect of the invalid provision or, in case of a gap, the Parties’ presumed intentions. In the event that the terms and conditions of this Agreement are materially altered as a result of the preceding sentences, the Parties shall renegotiate the terms and conditions of this Agreement in order to resolve any inequities. Nothing in this Agreement shall be interpreted so as to require any Party to violate any applicable laws, rules or regulations.

-8-

16.Assignment; Binding Effect. This Agreement may not be assigned by any Party without the prior written consent of the other Parties to this Agreement; provided, however, that any Party may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any of its affiliates to which any portion of the Collaboration Agreement is assigned in compliance with the Collaboration Agreement if such Party guarantees the performance of this Agreement by such affiliate; provided, further, that any Party may assign this Agreement to a successor to all or substantially all of the assets of such Party whether by merger, sale of stock, sale of assets or other similar transaction. This Agreement shall be binding on and, subject to the foregoing sentence, inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective permitted transferees, successors, permitted assigns and legal representatives.

17.Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one instrument.

Exhibit B

Termination Agreement and Release

(Strategic Alliance)

This TERMINATION AGREEMENT AND RELEASE, dated as of July 13, 2022 (this “Agreement”), is entered into by Glaxo Group Limited, a private company limited by shares registered under the laws of England and Wales (“GSK”), and Theravance Respiratory Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“TRC”). GSK and TRC are referred to in this Agreement individually as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”.

WHEREAS, in 2014, Innoviva, Inc. (f/k/a Theravance, Inc.), a Delaware corporation (“Innoviva”) separated Theravance Biopharma, Inc. (“Theravance Biopharma”) into a separate and independent, publicly traded company from Innoviva (the “Separation”) through a pro rata dividend of Theravance Biopharma ordinary shares to Innoviva stockholders, and in connection with the Separation, Innoviva assigned to TRC that certain Strategic Alliance Agreement, dated as of March 30, 2004, as amended on September 13, 2004, February 11, 2005, February 8, 2006, February 27, 2006, February 27, 2009, June 22, 2009, July 16, 2010, October 3, 2011 and March 3, 2014, by and between Innoviva and GSK (as amended, the “Strategic Alliance Agreement”);

WHEREAS, (i) Theravance Biopharma, together with its affiliates, wish to transfer all of their respective equity interests in TRC to Royalty Pharma Investments 2019 ICAV, an Irish collective asset-management vehicle (the “Purchaser”), pursuant to that certain Equity Purchase and Funding Agreement, dated as of the date hereof (including the schedules and exhibits thereto, the “Theravance EPA”), by and between Theravance Biopharma and the Purchaser (the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Theravance EPA, the “Closing”), and (ii) Innoviva, together with its affiliates, wish to transfer all of their respective equity interests in TRC to the Purchaser pursuant to that certain Equity Purchase Agreement, dated as of the date hereof (including the schedules and exhibits thereto, the “Innoviva EPA”, and, together with the Theravance EPA, the “EPAs”), by and among Innoviva TRC Holdings LLC, the Purchaser and Innoviva (the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Innoviva EPA, the “Innoviva Closing”); and

WHEREAS, in connection with the transactions contemplated by the EPAs, TRC and GSK desire to terminate the Strategic Alliance Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, and release each other from certain claims.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing premises and the representations, covenants and agreements contained herein, the Parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

1.Termination. GSK and TRC hereby terminate the Strategic Alliance Agreement effective upon the Closing (irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs).

2.Release. Effective (a) with respect to the Initial Released Claims (as defined below), upon the Closing (and irrespective of whether the Innoviva Closing occurs), and (b) with respect to the Subsequent Released Claims (as defined below), upon the Innoviva Closing (provided that the Innoviva Closing occurs within three (3) business days of the Closing), each Party, on behalf of itself and each of its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, the “Releasing Parties”), hereby unconditionally and forever releases, waives and discharges all claims, actions, causes of action, choses in action, suits, debts, damages, dues, sums of money, accounts, reckonings, bonds, bills, specialties, controversies, variances, trespasses, judgments, remedies, rights of set-off, third-party claims, subrogation claims, contribution claims, reimbursement claims, indemnity claims, counterclaims, and crossclaims, whether known or Unknown Claims, liquidated or unliquidated, fixed or contingent, matured or unmatured, disputed or undisputed, whether direct, indirect, derivative, or otherwise, and whether arising in law, equity or otherwise (collectively, “Causes of Action”) that could have been, or may be, asserted by or on behalf of such Releasing Party against any other Party and its affiliates or subsidiaries and the respective current and former officers, managers, affiliates, subsidiaries, partners, directors, employees, agents, members, shareholders, securities holders, note holders, advisors and professionals (including any attorneys, accountants, consultants, financial advisors, investment bankers and other professionals retained by such persons) of such other parties and the affiliates and subsidiaries thereof, together with their respective successors and assigns, each solely in its capacity as such (collectively, the “Released Parties”), to the extent based on any act, omission, transaction, event, occurrence or facts or circumstances taking place, being omitted, existing or otherwise arising (i) prior to the Closing (the “Initial Released Claims”), or (ii) prior to the Innoviva Closing (the “Subsequent Released Claims”), and, in each case (i) and (ii), relating to the Strategic Alliance Agreement ((i) and (ii) collectively, the “Released Claims”).

“Unknown Claims” means claims which the Releasing Parties do not know or suspect to exist in their favor at the time of the release of the Released Parties, including any such claims which, if known by them might have affected their release of the Released Parties, or might have affected their decision(s) with respect to this Agreement. With respect to any and all Released Claims, the Releasing Parties stipulate and agree that they expressly waive, the provisions, rights, and benefits conferred by any law of any state or territory of the United States, or principle of common law, which is similar, comparable, or equivalent to California Civil Code §1542, which provides:

A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.

The Releasing Parties acknowledge that they may hereafter discover facts in addition to or different from those which they now know or believe to be true with respect to the subject matter of the Released Claims, but expressly fully, finally, and forever waive, compromise, settle, discharge, extinguish and release fully, finally, and forever, any and all Released Claims, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, contingent or non-contingent, whether or not concealed or hidden, which now exist, or heretofore have existed, upon any theory of law or equity now existing or coming into existence in the future, including, but not limited to, conduct which is negligent, intentional, with or without malice, or a breach of any duty, law or rule, without regard to the subsequent discovery or existence of such different or additional facts, legal theories, or authorities. The Releasing Parties acknowledge that the foregoing waiver was separately bargained for and is an essential element of this Agreement of which this release is a part.

3.Termination Date. This Agreement shall automatically terminate and have no further force or effect without any action by any of the Parties if the Theravance EPA shall have been terminated and the Closing shall not have occurred.

4.No Admission of Wrongdoing. Neither by offering to make, nor by making, this Agreement, do any of the Parties admit any failure of performance, wrongdoing, or violation of law. Neither this Agreement nor any of its terms may be used as an admission or introduced as evidence as to any issue of law or fact in any proceeding, suit or action, other than an action to enforce this Agreement.

5.Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the full and entire understanding and agreement between the Parties with regard to the subject hereof. References in this Agreement to other agreements or documents shall refer to such agreements or documents as they may be amended. Any provision of this Agreement may be amended or waived if, and only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and signed, by all of the Parties and by Theravance Biopharma.

6.Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed, and the respective rights of the Parties determined, according to the substantive law of the State of Delaware notwithstanding the provisions governing conflict of laws under such Delaware law to the contrary. The Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction of, and waive any objection to the laying of venue in, the U.S. federal and state court in the State of Delaware (collectively, the “Chosen Courts”) for any action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and agree not to commence any action, suit or proceeding related thereto except in a Chosen Court.

7.Severability. In the event of the invalidity of any provisions of this Agreement or if this Agreement contains any gaps, the Parties agree that such invalidity or gap shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement. The Parties will replace an invalid provision or fill any gap with valid provisions which most closely approximate the purpose and economic effect of the invalid provision or, in case of a gap, the Parties’ presumed intentions. In the event that the terms and conditions of this Agreement are materially altered as a result of the preceding sentences, the Parties shall renegotiate the terms and conditions of this Agreement in order to resolve any inequities.
