ABLYNX (D) : RECEIVES FURTHER MILESTONE PAYMENTS OF EUR3 MILLION AS PART OF ITS STRATEGIC ALLIANCE WITH BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM

10/01/2010 | 01:05am US/Eastern




  GHENT, Belgium, 1 October 2010 - Ablynx [Euronext Brussels: ABLX] today
announced that it will receive further milestone payments totalling EUR3 million
from Boehringer Ingelheim, triggered as part of its strategic alliance for the
development and commercialisation of Nanobodies(®). Ablynx has now earned a
total of EUR12 million in milestone payments as part of this agreement.

Ablynx and Boehringer Ingelheim entered into an agreement in September 2007 to
collaborate on the discovery, development and commercialisation of up to 10
different Nanobody therapeutics across a range of areas including for example
immunology, oncology and respiratory diseases. The agreement would allow
potential milestone payments of up to EUR125 million for each Nanobody developed
as well as undisclosed royalties to Ablynx. Boehringer Ingelheim is exclusively
responsible for the development, manufacture and commercialisation of any
products resulting from the collaboration. Ablynx retains certain co-promotion
rights in Europe.

Dr Edwin Moses, CEO and Chairman of Ablynx, said: "We are pleased that yet
another Nanobody programme has reached this contractual milestone. The Nanobody
platform continues to deliver across therapeutic areas and also for complex
targets."
