Spanish Government Selects Novavax's VLP Technology for Comprehensive Flu Vaccine Solution in Spain
Date:6/30/2009

ROCKVILLE, Md., June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Novavax, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVAX) announced today its initial agreement to license its proprietary, recombinant virus-like-particle (VLP) vaccine technology to ROVI Pharmaceuticals (Madrid: ROVI) of Spain. ROVI will use the VLP technology to create a comprehensive influenza vaccine solution for the Spanish government under a new 60 million-euro program sponsored and led by the Spanish Ministry of Health and other government groups to develop pandemic and seasonal flu vaccines and establish its only in-border facility. This program, which was announced today by Spanish health officials, is being launched to develop safe and effective flu vaccines to serve the entire population of Spain.

Under separate agreements that are in the process of being negotiated by both companies, ROVI will receive exclusive licenses to Novavax's portable VLP vaccine technology to commercialize flu vaccines in Spain and Portugal, and non-exclusive licenses in Europe, Latin America and Africa. Furthermore, under a stock purchase agreement executed today, ROVI has committed to make a $3 million (US) equity investment in Novavax at $2.74 per share, a 10% premium to the June 29, 2009 closing bid price on the NASDAQ Global Market. A non-profit Foundation, jointly sponsored by ROVI and the Spanish authorities, will be formed and initially funded with a 25 million euro credit line from the Spanish government, to support Phase III clinical development and other studies necessary to achieve marketing authorization of the VLP influenza vaccines in the European Union in 2012. Additional clinical development funds will be contributed by ROVI if required. In addition, the State of Andalucia will support ROVI in building a new VLP vaccine plant in the city of Granada and bring it on-line in 2012 at a cost of approximately 20 million e
