Settlement with Medicis
On January 12, 2005, Medicis and we announced a settlement to our claims against Medicis related to the acquisition of Orapred by us. Medicis and we executed amendments to our Securities Purchase Agreement and License Agreement entered into on May 18, 2004, a Convertible Promissory Note and a Settlement and Mutual Release Agreement. Under the terms of these agreements, remaining payments to Medicis from us totaling $150 million as of December 31, 2004 will be reduced by $21 million to $129 million. Medicis will also pay us up to $6 million for certain Orapred returns received by us between October 1, 2004 and June 30, 2005. Additionally, Medicis will make available to us a convertible note of up to $25 million beginning July 1, 2005, based on certain terms and conditions, including a change of control provision. Money advanced under the convertible note is convertible, at Medicis discretion, into shares of our common stock at a strike price equal to our average closing price of our common stock for the 20 trading days prior to such advance. In conjunction with the agreements, Medicis and we have executed a Settlement and Mutual Release Agreement to forever discharge each other from any and all claims, demands, damages, debts, liabilities, actions and causes of action relating to the transaction consummated by Medicis and us, other than certain continuing obligations, in accordance with the terms of our agreements.
