"In the past 30 months, we have conducted 14 clinical trials with the three product candidates that were licensed into Symphony Allegro. This is a remarkable development achievement, by almost any standard. Moreover, we plan to submit Alexza's first NDA for AZ-004, Staccato loxapine, in the first quarter of 2010. Symphony Capital and RRD International have been a very important part of these accomplishments," said Thomas B. King, Alexza President and CEO. "With the closing of the purchase of Symphony Allegro, we will re-acquire full ownership of AZ-004, AZ-104 and AZ-002. In our partnership with Symphony Allegro, the intended development of these product candidates has been achieved and, assuming our stockholders approve the transaction, Symphony Capital and its investors will be able to share in the future benefits of the advancement of these product candidates."
Mark Kessel, Managing Director of Symphony Capital, added, "We are pleased to have been a part of this collaboration which provided capital and development assistance to enable Alexza to advance these product candidates to the point they are today. The terms of the agreement we have announced today continue to reflect the confidence that we have in Alexza and its management."
