Cornerstone Therapeutics Announces $70 Million Strategic Transaction With Chiesi Farmaceutici SpA
Date:5/7/2009

l company with the first right of offer on all products Chiesi intends to commercialize in the U.S.

As part of the transaction, Craig Collard, Cornerstone's President and CEO, and Steven Lutz, Cornerstone's Executive Vice President, Manufacturing and Trade, have agreed to sell an aggregate of 1.6 million shares to Chiesi at $5.50 per share. The combined number of common shares held by Chiesi, after giving effect to the purchase of the 1.6 million common shares and the issuance of approximately 11.9 million common shares, will be approximately 13.5 million shares, or approximately 51 percent of Cornerstone's fully diluted common shares outstanding.

Curosurf, which is a natural lung surfactant, is currently available in over 50 countries, including the U.S. and most of Europe, and has been administered to approximately 1,000,000 infants since 1992. In the U.S., Curosurf is indicated for the treatment of RDS in premature infants. RDS is one of the most common lung disorders in premature babies. It affects about 10 of every 100 premature infants in the U.S., or about 40,000 babies, each year. RDS can lead to serious complications and is one of the most common causes of neonatal mortality. For 2008, Curosurf's U.S. net sales were over $30 million. The drug currently maintains 44 percent market share in the U.S., more than 80 percent market share in Europe and 59 percent market share worldwide.

"We believe this is a truly transformative transaction for Cornerstone, providing us with a market leading proprietary respiratory product, significant capital and access to future products in our core therapeutic area at our discretion," said Mr. Collard. "Curosurf is an excellent product with a world leading market position, strong brand recognition, a proprietary manufacturing process, and solid growth potential. Adding $15.5 million to our balance sheet supports the continuing development
