Item 8.01 Other Events

 

Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (the “ Company ”) is reporting updates on its litigation with Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. (“ Mylan ”), Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. (“ Teva ”), and West-Ward Pharmaceuticals International Limited and Hikma Pharmaceuticals USA Inc., successors to Roxane Laboratories, Inc. (“ Hikma ”), relating to Ampyra® (dalfampridine) Orange Book-listed patents. As previously reported, the Company awaits a decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (the “ Federal Circuit ”) in the Company’s appeal of a 2017 U.S. District Court decision which invalidated four of the Company’s Ampyra Orange Book-listed patents that were set to expire between 2025 and 2027 (the “ Appellate Proceeding ”).

The Company has entered into a conditioned settlement agreement with Mylan and affiliates. As a result of the settlement agreement, Mylan will be permitted to market its generic version of Ampyra in the U.S. sometime in 2025 or earlier under certain circumstances.

In addition:

 

The Company has signed an interim agreement with Teva concerning their patent litigation relating to Ampyra that addresses the period of time until August 31, 2018 (and potentially until the Federal Circuit issues a decision on the merits of the Appellate Proceeding).

 

The Company has signed an interim agreement with Hikma concerning their patent litigation relating to Ampyra that addresses the period of time until the Federal Circuit issues a decision on the merits of the Appellate Proceeding.

The terms of the settlement agreement with Mylan and interim agreements with Teva and Hikma are otherwise confidential.
