Item 8.01               Other Events

 

Assertio Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “ Company ”), announced that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has ruled in favor of the Company with respect to the Company’s patent litigation against three filers of Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs) for the NUCYNTA® franchise. The Federal Circuit’s ruling affirms the decision of the United States District Court (D.N.J), which found U.S. patent No. 7,994,364 (the ‘364 Patent) to be valid and infringed by the defendants. The ‘364 Patent covers the entire NUCYNTA franchise until December 2025.  With the Federal Circuit’s ruling, the Company expects market exclusivity until December 2025 for NUCYNTA ER, NUCYNTA and NUCYNTA oral solution (an unmarketed form of NUCYNTA).  The Federal Circuit affirmed the District Court’s ruling with regard to U.S. patent No. 8,536,130 (the ‘130 Patent), which upheld the validity of the ‘130 Patent but found that two of the three filers of Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs) do not infringe the patent. The ‘130 Patent covers NUCYNTA ER until March 2029.  The periods of patent exclusivity referred to above include the addition of six months of pediatric patent term extension the Company anticipates securing from the United States Food and Drug Administration.
