Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Effective as of September 9, 2019 (the “Settlement Date”), Lexicon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. entered into a Confidential Termination and Settlement Agreement and Mutual Releases (the “Termination Agreement”) with Sanofi-Aventis Deutschland GmbH (“Sanofi”), pursuant to which the Collaboration and License Agreement, dated November 5, 2015, as amended (the “Collaboration Agreement”) between Lexicon and Sanofi for the development and commercialization of sotagliflozin was terminated and certain disputes between Lexicon and Sanofi, as described in Lexicon’s current report on Form 8-K filed on July 29, 2019 (the “Disputes”), were settled.
Under the terms of the Termination Agreement, Lexicon will regain all rights to sotagliflozin and assume full responsibility for the worldwide development and commercialization of sotagliflozin in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Sanofi will pay Lexicon $260 million, of which 80% is payable upfront and 10% is payable within each of six and twelve months of the Settlement Date, and neither party will owe any additional payments pursuant to the Collaboration Agreement. The parties will cooperate in the transition of responsibility for ongoing clinical studies and other activities, and each party is responsible for its own expenses associated with such transition, subject to certain exceptions. Certain core Phase 3 clinical studies will transition to Lexicon immediately and certain other non-core clinical studies, including the SCORED Phase 3 cardiovascular outcomes study and the SOLOIST worsening heart failure study (the “Non-Core Studies”), will transition to Lexicon as of 120 days following the Settlement Date; provided, that Lexicon is responsible for payment under third party contracts associated with the Non-Core Studies during such 120-day period. Lexicon and Sanofi also agreed to a mutual release of all claims relating to the Disputes.
We issued a press release regarding our entry into the Termination Agreement on September 10, 2019, a copy of which is attached to this current report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1.
A summary of the material terms of the Collaboration Agreement is included in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2018. The foregoing description of the Collaboration Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Collaboration Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.14 to our annual report on Form 10-K/A for the year ending December 31, 2015 and as Exhibit 10.1 to our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017.
