Item 8.01. Other Events.


On June 19, 2019, Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Momenta”), together with Sandoz Inc. (“Sandoz”), announced that they have entered into a settlement agreement (the “Agreement”) with Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and International Medication Systems, Ltd. (Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and International Medication Systems, Ltd. individually and collectively referred to as “Amphastar”) to settle certain patent infringement litigation relating to a Momenta patent for its generic enoxaparin product (the “Patent Action”) and related antitrust litigation (the “Antitrust Action,” and collectively with the Patent Action, the “Actions”) between the parties.


The United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts had entered final judgment in the Patent Action in March 2018, finding that Amphastar infringed Momenta’s patent, but that the patent was invalid and unenforceable against one of the two infringing methods used by Amphastar (the “Patent Judgment”). The Agreement became effective on June 18, 2019, upon the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts’ entry of a final order of vacatur (the “Vacatur Order”) of the Patent Judgment. Momenta will pay $21 million to Amphastar by July 2, 2019 under the terms of the Agreement.


As previously disclosed, Momenta had posted $36.1 million as collateral for a $100 million security bond required to be posted by Momenta and Sandoz in connection with the Patent Action, and had classified the collateral as restricted cash in its consolidated balance sheet.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
