Gurnet Point L.P. enters into agreement to acquire Innocoll Holdings plc

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
April 04, 2017, CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & ATHLONE, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gurnet Point L.P., a healthcare investment fund, and Innocoll Holdings plc (NASDAQ:INNL), a global pharmaceutical and medical device company, today announced that they have reached an agreement on the terms of a recommended offer. Under the recommended offer, Gurnet Point will acquire Innocoll for $1.75 per share in cash, and up to $4.90 in cash from a contingent value right (CVR), for a total potential per share value of up to $6.65 or up to approximately $209 million in aggregate. The initial cash consideration of $1.75 represents a premium of approximately 120 percent to the closing price per Innocoll Share on March 10, 2017, the last dealing day prior to the date on which the anomalous movement in Innocoll’s shares commenced (and a premium of approximately 28 percent to the closing price per Innocoll Share on March 15, 2017, the day prior to Innocoll initiating the commencement of the offer period).

During the offer period, Gurnet Point plans to provide a term loan of $10 million to give Innocoll additional resources needed for the continued development of XARACOLL within the post-operative pain market. Innocoll believes that the loan will provide it with the additional capital needed to prepare for the re-submission of the XARACOLL new drug application (“NDA”) to the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (“FDA”) in order to achieve the milestones related to the CVR.

This transaction builds on Gurnet Point’s strategy of investing in life science, medical technology and healthcare service companies. Since its initial NASDAQ public offering in 2014, Innocoll has leveraged its proprietary collagen-based technology to successfully complete two Phase 3 studies for XARACOLL, Innocoll’s late-stage surgically implantable and bioresorbable collagen matrix. XARACOLL was developed to provide sustained post-operative pain relief through controlled delivery of bupivacaine at the surgical site.

Innocoll noted that its Board had explored a sale of the company, to achieve its goal of bringing XARACOLL to market, as well as keeping the company independent and funding the over $100 million required to fund operations through 2019 from raising equity or debt. The “go-it-alone” option was dismissed due to the potential for significant shareholder dilution and execution risk. A potential license for XARACOLL in the United States was also investigated, but no suitable partner has been found.

“Having studied a number of strategic options over the past several months, our Board and management team believe this strategic transaction will give Innocoll access to the financial resources it needs to pursue its goals of bringing XARACOLL through its development to commercialization, and address important unmet medical needs in the post-operative pain market. We believe that the combined leadership of the two companies, supported by Gurnet Point’s financial strength, will better position Innocoll to pursue a successful filing and subsequent commercialization of XARACOLL,” said Jonathan Symonds, Chairperson of Innocoll. “The Innocoll directors unanimously support the offer, which represents a significant premium to the recent share price. In addition, the CVR allows shareholders to participate in the continued development of XARACOLL without further investment."
