Burrill Merchant Banking Advises Pfizer Inc. on Dermatology Portfolio Divestment
Date:7/14/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Burrill Merchant Banking acted as exclusive financial advisor to Pfizer Inc. on its recently-completed divestment of three investigational compounds for dermatological conditions to Graceway Pharmaceuticals, LLC. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The most advanced product is a novel Cholesterol-Aceyltransferase (ACAT) inhibitor currently in Phase 2 development for the treatment of oily skin and acne. An earlier-stage Stearoyl CoA Desaturase 1 (SCD1) Inhibitor targeting the same indication was also included in the transaction, as was an Activin-Like Kinase 5 (ALK-5) inhibitor currently in preclinical development for reducing scarring resulting from surgery or trauma.

Simultaneous with the out-licensing transaction, Pfizer and Graceway executed a Master Services and Supply Agreement under which Pfizer agreed to provide clinical and other development support for the three licensed compounds.
