Insmed Sells Follow-on Biologics Platform to Merck & Co., Inc. for Gross Proceeds of $130 Million
Date:2/12/2009

. Geoffrey Allan, President and CEO of Insmed. "We are pleased that over the past two years our team has been successful in developing such a valuable asset, which, as a result of this agreement, will generate a substantial return to the Company."

"This transaction will transform and strengthen our balance sheet in a completely non-dilutive fashion, and provides us with substantial financial flexibility in a market where cash, especially for small biotech companies, is scarce," continued Dr. Allan.

The proceeds from the transaction will be used to support the continued development of IPLEX(TM), and the Company will carefully evaluate other options, which could include the distribution of a portion of the cash to shareholders.

As of December 31, 2008, Insmed had $2.4 million in cash on hand with an ongoing net cash burn of approximately $1.2 million per month. This transaction, in accordance with Virginia corporate law, does not require a shareholder vote, though it is conditional on certain closing requirements, including obtaining necessary consents.

RBC Capital Markets served as exclusive financial advisor to Insmed on the transaction and the review of strategic alternatives, and provided a fairness opinion to the Company's Board of Directors.
