"(..) In connection with our acquisition of Metabasis in January 2010, we issued Metabasis stockholders four tradable CVRs, one CVR from each of four respective series of CVR, for each Metabasis share. The CVRs entitle Metabasis stockholders to cash payments as frequently as every six months as cash is received by us from proceeds from the sale or partnering of any of the Metabasis drug development programs, among other triggering events. The liability for the CVRs is determined using quoted prices in a market that is not active for the underlying CVR. The carrying amount of the liability may fluctuate significantly based upon quoted market prices and actual amounts paid under the agreements may be materially different than the carrying amount of the liability. Several of the Metabasis drug development programs have been outlicensed to Viking, including VK2809. VK2809 is a novel selective TR-ß agonist with potential in multiple indications, including hypercholesterolemia, dyslipidemia, NASH, and X-ALD. Under the terms of the agreement with Viking, we may be entitled to up to $375 million of development, regulatory and commercial milestones and tiered royalties on potential future sales including a $10 million payment upon initiation of a Phase 3 clinical trial. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we adjusted the balance of the Metabasis CVR liability $0.1 million and $(0.9) million to mark to market, respectively. (..)"

LIGAND EARNS $6.5 MILLION MILESTONE PAYMENT FROM ROCHE

April 20, 2010
Roche Advances RG7348 into Clinical Development for Hepatitis C

SAN DIEGO-- Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ: LGND) today announced that it earned a $6.5 million payment from Roche (SWX: ROG.VX; RO.S, OTCQX: RHHBY) as a result of Roche progressing RG7348 into a Phase I clinical trial for the treatment of hepatitis C viral (HCV) infection. The milestone payment arises from a 2008 collaboration and license agreement between Roche and Metabasis Therapeutics, Inc. Ligand acquired Metabasis in January 2010. Ligand's net proceeds from the milestone payment will be approximately $2.3 million after paying $4.2 million to others including holders of the Ligand-issued "Roche" CVR.

"This is a great milestone for Ligand due to the cash revenue and because it validates the quality of assets we assumed through our recent acquisitions," said John L. Higgins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ligand. "Recently we have acquired three public companies that have contributed a vast array of partnered and pipeline assets. We are very pleased with our partnership with Roche and are excited to see their program advance to human development for HCV."

Under the 2008 collaboration and license agreement, Metabasis contributed HepDirect(R) liver-targeting technology to help develop prodrugs of Roche's proprietary lead nucleosides against HCV infection. Ligand is eligible to receive additional payments from Roche upon the achievement of certain further development and regulatory milestones as well as royalties on potential sales of the drug, subject to obligations to share such payments with holders of the Ligand-issued Roche CVR.

The CVRs

Ligand issued a Roche contingent value right (CVR) to each former holder of a Metabasis common share as part of Ligand's acquisition of Metabasis. Each Roche CVR entitles holders to certain payments if and when Ligand receives certain payments in connection with the Roche-Metabasis collaboration and license agreement. Of the $6.5 million milestone payment, 65% is earmarked for the Roche CVR holders. After reduction for pre-existing contractual payment obligations, the Roche CVR holders will receive approximately $2.7 million in respect of this milestone payment.

About Ligand Pharmaceuticals

Ligand discovers and develops new drugs that address critical unmet medical needs of patients for a broad spectrum of diseases including hepatitis, muscle wasting, Alzheimer's, inflammatory diseases, anemia, COPD, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. Ligand's proprietary drug discovery and development programs are based on advanced cell-based assays, gene-expression tools, ultra-high throughput screening and one of the world's largest combinatorial chemical libraries.

Ligand Announces Record Date and Details for Distribution for OmniAb Spin-Off

October 03 2022 - 09:00AM
Business Wire

Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ: LGND) today announced that its board of directors has set October 26, 2022 as the record date (Record Date) for the dividend of shares of common stock of OmniAb, Inc. to be distributed to Ligand shareholders in order to effect the separation of Ligand and OmniAb into two independent, publicly traded companies. The dividend in OmniAb shares is expected to be distributed to Ligand shareholders on or about November 1, 2022, the expected closing date of the previously announced business combination (Business Combination) between OmniAb and Avista Public Acquisition Corp. II (APAC) (NASDAQ: AHPA). Following the closing of the Business Combination, APAC will change its name to “OmniAb, Inc.” (New OmniAb) and begin trading on the Nasdaq Global Market under the stock ticker symbol “OABI,” and Ligand will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Market under the stock ticker symbol “LGND.”

Ligand shareholders as of the close of business on the Record Date will receive shares of OmniAb common stock on a pro rata basis representing 100% of Ligand’s interest in OmniAb. Immediately following the distribution of OmniAb shares, the Business Combination is expected to close. Upon the closing of the Business Combination, all shares of OmniAb common stock will be automatically exchanged for shares of New OmniAb on a pro rata basis according to a base exchange ratio (Base Exchange Ratio) calculated immediately prior to closing using a formula set forth in the merger agreement (Merger Agreement) among Ligand, OmniAb, APAC and a subsidiary of APAC. The Base Exchange Ratio is based on the number of shares of Ligand common stock outstanding and the relative trading values of the Ligand common stock in the “regular way” and “ex-distribution” markets during the five-trading-day period prior to the closing.

Based on an illustrative record date of June 30, 2022 and Ligand stock price as of such date and an estimated Base Exchange Ratio, Ligand shareholders would receive approximately 4.9 shares of New OmniAb common stock for each share of Ligand/OmniAb common stock.

In addition, as part of the exchange, Ligand shareholders as of the Record Date will receive earnout shares (Earnout Shares) of New OmniAb common stock on a pro rata basis according to an earnout exchange ratio (Earnout Exchange Ratio) calculated immediately prior to closing using a formula set forth in the Merger Agreement. Based on an illustrative record date of June 30, 2022 and Ligand stock price as of such date and an estimated Earnout Exchange Ratio, Ligand shareholders would receive approximately 0.75 shares of New OmniAb common stock for each share of Ligand/OmniAb common stock. The Earnout Shares will vest based upon the achievement of certain volume-weighted average trading prices for shares of New OmniAb during the five-year period following the closing of the Business Combination.

Based on the foregoing estimates, Ligand’s shareholders would receive aggregate shares of New OmniAb common stock representing approximately 76.3% (assuming no redemptions by APAC shareholders) to 85.0% (assuming maximum redemptions by APAC shareholders) of New OmniAb, APAC’s existing public shareholders would own approximately 18.0% (assuming no redemptions by APAC shareholders) to 0% (assuming maximum redemptions by APAC shareholders) of New OmniAb, and the sponsor and related parties of APAC (Sponsor) would own approximately 5.7% (assuming no redemptions by APAC shareholders) to 15.0% (assuming maximum redemptions by APAC shareholders) of New OmniAb, including the Earnout Shares in each case.

The actual number of shares of New OmniAb common stock and Earnout Shares that each Ligand shareholder will receive with respect to each share of OmniAb common stock will be calculated on the closing date and may differ from these estimates. No fractional shares of New OmniAb common stock will be issued in the merger, and instead Ligand shareholders will receive cash in lieu of any fractional share (other than with respect to Earnout Shares).

Ligand shareholders do not need to take any action. Their OmniAb shares received upon distribution of the dividend will automatically be exchanged for New OmniAb common stock and Earnout Shares in the merger on the closing date of the Business Combination. Following the closing of the Business Combination, Ligand shareholders will continue to hold, along with their new shares of New OmniAb common stock and Earnout Shares, the same number of shares of Ligand common stock that they held immediately prior to the closing. After the closing, investors should expect that Ligand’s share price will adjust to reflect the transfer of the OmniAb business to New OmniAb.

In connection with the Business Combination, OmniAb and APAC filed registration statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), described below under “Important Information and Where to Find It.” On September 30, 2022, the SEC declared both registration statements effective. The registration statements contain further information regarding the spin-off and Business Combination, including the conditions to completion of the Business Combination and additional details regarding the calculation of the applicable exchange ratios described above.

Factors that May Affect the Dividend and Spin-Off

The dividend is conditioned upon, and the spin-off and Business Combination are subject to, the satisfaction or waiver of closing conditions for the Business Combination. If certain closing conditions are not satisfied or waived in advance of the expected closing date, Ligand may elect to change the record date for the dividend to a later date or to not proceed with the dividend or the spin-off.

Two-Way Trading to Begin for Ligand on the Nasdaq Global Market (Nasdaq)

Beginning on or around the trading day prior to the Record Date and continuing through the close of trading on the closing date of the Business Combination, there will be two markets in Ligand common stock on Nasdaq: a “regular way” market and an “ex-distribution” market. During this period of two-way trading in Ligand common stock, there will also be a market on Nasdaq for New OmniAb common stock on a “when issued” basis.

The trading options that will be available during the two-way trading period are:

Ligand Regular Way Trading

If, during the period of two-way trading, a Ligand shareholder sells a share of Ligand common stock in the regular way market under Ligand’s Nasdaq symbol, “LGND,” the shareholder will be selling both the share of Ligand common stock and the right to receive shares of New OmniAb common stock in the transaction.

Ligand Ex-distribution Trading

If, during the period of two-way trading, a Ligand shareholder sells a share of Ligand common stock in the ex-distribution market under the temporary Nasdaq symbol “LGNDV,” the Ligand shareholder will be selling only a share of Ligand common stock and will retain the right to receive shares of New OmniAb common stock in the transaction.

New OmniAb When issued Trading

During the two-way trading period, a Ligand shareholder also has the option of selling the right to receive shares of New OmniAb common stock while retaining shares of Ligand common stock. This option will be available under the temporary Nasdaq symbol “OABIV.”

Trades under the symbols “OABIV” and “LGNDV” will settle after the closing date of the Business Combination. If the transaction is not completed, all trades made under these temporary symbols will be cancelled.

In all cases, investors should consult with their financial and tax advisors regarding the specific implications of selling shares of their Ligand common stock or the right to receive shares of New OmniAb common stock on or before the closing date of the Business Combination.

$LGNYZ & $LGNDZ still primed for several big (if not huge!) dividend payouts also the BIG MOVE cuz of the strikeprice thing should happen for all 4 CVRs, if we move up to latest analyst targets of $310/share for mothership $LGND until 2023/2024, as I see it. Btw the strikeprice for all CVRs is fixed at $315/share for $LGND, so the higher our mothership is moving the more interesting & hotter will get those CVRs!! ;) DYOR. *NFA ~jmho~

Raises 2022 Financial Guidance

Conference Call Begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time Today

Ligand Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (NASDAQ: $LGND) today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and provided an operating forecast and program updates. Ligand management will host a conference call today beginning at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time to discuss this announcement and answer questions.

“2022 continues to be an outstanding year for Ligand, in particular as royalties from our Pelican Expression Technology platform grow into meaningful revenue contributors,” said John Higgins, CEO of Ligand. “The business is enjoying good momentum with numerous positive late-stage developments announced by our partners this past quarter. Financially, the business is doing very well, and we are solidly positioned to spin-off the expanding OmniAb business through a distribution to shareholders and merger with the Avista SPAC expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $57.4 million, compared with $84.7 million for the same period in 2021. Royalty revenue increased 108% to $18.0 million due primarily to Kyprolis and sales of products using the Pelican platform. Core Captisol sales for the second quarter of 2022 were $3.3 million, compared with $9.7 million for the same period in 2021. The difference in sales is due to timing of customer orders. Captisol sales related to COVID-19 were $26.2 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $52.8 million for the same period in 2021. The difference in sales is due to reduced demand for the pandemic-related treatment. Contract revenue was $9.9 million, lower than the same period last year which included two significant milestones tied to the Pelican platform. Revenue attributable to the OmniAb business for the second quarter of 2022 was $7.3 million, compared with $5.8 million for the prior year period.

Cost of Captisol was $12.4 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $30.6 million for the same period in 2021, with the decrease primarily due to lower total sales of Captisol. Amortization of intangibles was $11.8 million for the second quarter of both 2022 and 2021. Research and development expense was $19.1 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $16.0 million for the same period in 2021, with the increase primarily due to continued investment in the OmniAb business including facilities and headcount related expenditures associated with the expected spin-off later this year. General and administrative expense was $14.6 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $14.7 million for the same period in 2021.

There was no other operating income for the second quarter of 2022, compared with $34.1 million for the second quarter of 2021, which represented a non-cash valuation adjustment to reduce the Pfenex CVR liability due to an expected lower probability of achieving the required milestone under the Pfenex CVR Agreement.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $(0.9) million, or $(0.05) per share, compared with net income of $30.7 million, or $1.79 per diluted share, for the same period in 2021. Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 included a $(1.9) million net non-cash loss from the value of Ligand’s short-term investments, and net income for the second quarter of 2021 included a $(8.3) million net non-cash loss from the value of Ligand’s short-term investments. Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2022 was $17.6 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared with $28.0 million, or $1.63 per diluted share, for the same period in 2021. Excluding the impact of gross profit, net of tax, for Captisol sales related to COVID-19, adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2022 was $5.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared with $13.0 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, for the same period in 2021. Please see the table below for a reconciliation of net income/(loss) to adjusted net income.

Ligand repurchased $62.0 million in principal amount of its 2023 Notes for $60.0 million in cash during the second quarter of 2022. As of June 30, 2022, Ligand had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $147.9 million.

Year-to-Date Financial Results

Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $103.1 million, compared with $139.8 million for the same period in 2021.

Core Captisol sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 were $9.6 million, compared with $10.9 million for the prior year. Captisol sales related to COVID-19 were $32.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared with $82.8 million for the same period in 2021. The lower sales are due to reduced demand for the pandemic-related treatment.

Research and development expense was $39.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared with $33.8 million for the same period of 2021, with the increase primarily due to continued investment in the OmniAb business which includes facilities and headcount related expenditures associated with the expected spin-off later this year. General and administrative expense was $32.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared with $27.0 million expense for the same period in 2021, with the increase primarily due to $5.0 million in transaction costs incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2022 in connection with the planned spin-off of OmniAb.

There was no other operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared with $33.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, which represented a non-cash valuation adjustment to reduce the Pfenex CVR liability due to an expected lower probability of achieving the required milestone under the Pfenex CVR Agreement.

Please see the table below for a reconciliation of net income/(loss) to adjusted net income.

2022 Financial Guidance

Ligand is raising 2022 revenue guidance for the combined business and is reaffirming revenue estimated to be attributable to the OmniAb business anticipating the spin-off occurs later this year. Ligand expects 2022 royalties of $62 million to $66 million, Captisol sales of $55 million to $60 million and contract revenue of $52 million to $62 million. These revenue components result in total revenue of $169 million to $188 million for the combined business. Ligand expects that $35 million to $45 million of revenue will be attributable to OmniAb, principally in the contract revenue line.

Of the $55 million to $60 million of expected Captisol sales, Ligand expects approximately $17 million to $19 million to be attributable to core Captisol sales, and the balance to be attributable to treatments for COVID-19. Excluding OmniAb revenue and COVID-related Captisol sales, Ligand expects revenue to be $97 million to $104 million and adjusted earnings per diluted share to be $1.80 to $2.05. Ligand expects the contribution from COVID-related Captisol and the OmniAb business to be between $0.60 and $0.95 per diluted share, resulting in a combined company adjusted earnings per diluted share of $2.40 to $3.00.

Update on the OmniAb Separation Process

On March 23, 2022, Ligand announced the signing of a definitive merger agreement with Avista Public Acquisition Corp. II (APAC) (NASDAQ: AHPA), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), providing for the spin-off and merger of OmniAb. The combination of OmniAb and APAC is structured to provide a minimum of $130 million in gross cash to the combined company at the time of closing, and up to $266 million in the event of no redemptions by APAC shareholders.

OmniAb will have an initial pre-money equity valuation of $850 million. Ligand intends to distribute 100% of its ownership in OmniAb to Ligand shareholders immediately prior to the business combination with APAC. The transaction is expected to be tax-free to Ligand and its shareholders for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022.

See “Important Information and Where to Find It” and “Participants in the Solicitation” below for additional information regarding the transaction.

Adjusted Financial Measures

The Company reports adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s financial measures under GAAP include share-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense, amortization related to acquisitions and intangible assets, changes in contingent liabilities, mark-to-market adjustments for amounts relating to its equity investments in public companies, excess tax benefit from share-based compensation, gross profit for Captisol sales related to COVID-19, net of tax, transaction costs and others that are listed in the itemized reconciliations between GAAP and adjusted financial measures included at the end of this press release. However, the Company does not provide reconciliations of such forward-looking adjusted measures to GAAP due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation, including adjustments that could be made for changes in contingent liabilities, changes in the market value of its investments in public companies, share-based compensation expense and the effects of any discrete income tax items. Management has excluded the effects of these items in its adjusted measures to assist investors in analyzing and assessing the Company’s past and future core operating performance. Additionally, adjusted earnings per diluted share is a key component of the financial metrics utilized by the Company’s board of directors to measure, in part, management’s performance and determine significant elements of management’s compensation.

Important Information and Where to Find It

In April 2022, in connection with the Business Combination and the Distribution, OmniAb filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form 10 (the “Form 10”) registering shares of OmniAb Common Stock and APAC filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form S-4 (the “Form S-4”) registering shares of APAC Common Stock, warrants and certain equity awards. The Form S-4 filed by APAC includes a proxy statement/prospectus in connection with the APAC shareholder vote required in connection with the Business Combination. The Form 10 filed by OmniAb included portions of the Form S-4 filed by APAC, which will serve as an information statement/prospectus in connection with the spin-off of OmniAb. In June 2022, OmniAb filed with the SEC a request to withdraw the Form 10 because APAC was in the process of responding to comments made by the staff of the Division of Corporation Finance (the “Staff”) with respect to the Form S-4. In the absence of this withdrawal request, pursuant to Section 12(g)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Form 10 would have automatically become effective on June 27, 2022. Subsequently, the Staff issued additional comments on APAC’s Form S-4. OmniAb intends to file a replacement registration statement on Form 10 with the SEC in connection with a future pre-effective amendment to the Form S-4 by APAC. This communication does not contain all the information that should be considered concerning the Business Combination. This communication is not a substitute for the registration statements that OmniAb and APAC filed or will file with the SEC or any other documents that APAC or OmniAb may file with the SEC, or that APAC, Ligand or OmniAb may send to stockholders in connection with the Business Combination. It is not intended to form the basis of any investment decision or any other decision in respect to the Business Combination. APAC’s shareholders, Ligand’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the preliminary and, when available, the definitive registration statements, and documents incorporated by reference therein, as these materials will contain important information about APAC, OmniAb and the Business Combination. The proxy statement/prospectus contained in APAC’s Form S-4 will be mailed to APAC’s shareholders as of a record date to be established for voting on the Business Combination.

The registration statements, proxy statement/prospectus/information statement and other documents (when available) are also available free of charge at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to: Avista Public Acquisition Corp. II, 65 East 55th Street, 18th Floor, New York, NY 10022.

Participants in the Solicitation

Ligand, APAC and OmniAb, and each of their respective directors, executive officers and other members of their management and employees may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from APAC’s shareholders in connection with the Business Combination. Shareholders are urged to carefully read the preliminary proxy statement/prospectus/information statement regarding the Business Combination and the final proxy statement/prospectus/information statement when it becomes available, because it will contain important information. Information regarding the persons who may, under the rules of the SEC, be deemed participants in the solicitation of APAC’s shareholders in connection with the Business Combination is set forth in the registration statement filed with the SEC.

H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis reiterated a Buy rating and $310.00 price target on Ligand Pharma (NASDAQ: $LGND), following the company's most recent quarterly report.

The analyst quotes: "We reiterate our Buy rating and $310 price target. Our target is based on sum-of-the-parts including: (1) a clinical NPV model of assets in Phase 2 development or greater (currently 20 out of more than 200 assets under development); and (2) NPV of current revenues based on our projections for royalties, material sales, and collaborative revenue. We believe that Ligand's strong cash position should prove incremental in driving future value for the company based on acquisitions and signed partnerships for current technology platforms such as liver targeting, Captisol, and especially OmniAb. We also point out that a significant number of assets are not included in our valuation as well as the growing number of candidates being generated from OmniAb partnerships. Our clinical NPV model allows us to flex multiple assumptions affecting a drug's potential commercial profile. Overall, we believe that our valuation projections should be supported by continued news flow out of partnered assets, new deals, and continued business development activities. Factors that could impede reaching our price target include failed or inconclusive clinical trials, insufficient traction of commercialized drugs, and or inability of the company to secure adequate funding to progress its drugs through the development pathway."

I can't even remember what goals we need to reach to get a payout. If I remember correctly the milestones have passed. You think we still have a chance.

I did find these.https://www.streetinsider.com/Corporate+News/Ligand+Pharma+%28LGND%29+to+Acquire+Pfenex+%28PFNX%29+for+%2412+Per+Share+in+Cash+Plus+CVR/17223733.html

is this part of a CVR?

Upon the closing of the transaction, Avista Capital Partners (Avista), APAC's sponsor and a leading private equity firm focused on the healthcare industry, has agreed to invest up to $115 million in the combined company, and Ligand will contribute $15 million.

Anyone here owning $LGND CVRs? We might see a stellar move for all of them soon imo. Big dividend payouts are a very realistic szenario for CVR holders per my DD. Any thoughts/expectations? I could be wrong but feel extremely comfortable with my investment here... $LGNDZ $LGNYZ $LGNXZ $LGNZZ

E.g. out of latest annual report: "TR-Beta - VK2809 and VK0214 (Viking)
Our partner, Viking, is developing VK2809, a novel selective TR-Beta agonist with potential in multiple indications, including hypercholesterolemia, dyslipidemia and NASH. VK2809 is currently in a Phase 2b clinical trial (the VOYAGE study) in patients with biopsy-confirmed NASH. Viking has previously announced positive results from a Phase 2a trial of VK2809 in hypercholesterolemia and fatty liver disease. VK0214 is currently in Phase 1 clinical development, and had been granted orphan drug study by the FDA for the treatment of X-ALD. Under the terms of the agreement with Viking, we may be entitled to up to $375 million of development, regulatory and commercial milestones and tiered royalties on potential future sales. Our TR Beta programs partnered with Viking are subject to CVR sharing and a portion of the cash received will be paid out to CVR holders."
