What is a Royalty Purchase Agreement?

A royalty purchase agreement is a legal contract that gives a licensee the right to use a licensor's intellectual property for financial gain. In exchange the licensee agrees to pay the licensor royalties. Royalties are a pre-determined dollar amount or percentage that is awarded to a licensor each time the licensee makes a sale on the involved product or service. This type of agreement allows licensors to make passive income from their intellectual property, which means they need not participate in the business dealings of the sales in order to make money.

Royalty agreements are most commonly used in the entertainment industry. For example, when a commercial features an artist's song, a royalty might be paid to the original artist each time the commercial airs on television. Royalty agreements ensure that unauthorized parties can't profit from the work or intellectual property of another person without that person's consent.

(a) Royalty Amount. In exchange for the Consideration, Titan shall pay to Deerfield a royalty (the “Royalty”) equal to the Applicable Percentage of Net Sales occurring during the Royalty Term. The Parties acknowledge and agree that Titan currently has a right to receive royalties from Novartis pursuant to the Novartis

 

4


Sublicense, and it is the intention of Titan and Deerfield that the transaction contemplated by this Agreement shall constitute a sale of Titan’s right to receive royalties from Novartis pursuant to the Novartis Sublicense in an amount up to the amount of the Royalty, free and clear of all Liens and rights of others (other than the security interest therein in favor of the Noteholders under and as defined in the Facility Agreement) and it is intended that the beneficial interest in and title to Titan’s right to receive royalties from Novartis pursuant to the Novartis Sublicense in an amount up to the amount of the Royalty shall not be part of Titan’s bankruptcy estate if a petition by or against Titan is filed under any bankruptcy law. If, notwithstanding such intent, such transaction is held not to be a sale, Titan hereby confirms the grant of a security interest in the royalties from Novartis pursuant to the Novartis Sublicense and the proceeds thereof pursuant to the Security Agreement, dated as of March 15, 2011, as amended, between Titan and the Noteholders (as defined in the Facility Agreement). Titan also hereby confirms the grant of a security interest in all of the collateral covered by the Security Agreement, dated as of March 15, 2011, as amended, between Titan and the Noteholders to secure payment of the Royalty.

(b) Payment of the Royalty. No later than two Business Days following the later of (i) the date Titan files its Earnings Report for each Quarter of its fiscal year (but in no event later than sixty days following the last day of each of the first three Quarters and one hundred twenty days following the fourth Quarter of each fiscal year) and (ii) the date of receipt by Titan in immediately available funds of its royalty payment from Novartis for the applicable Quarter, Titan shall pay to Deerfield the Royalty for such Quarter. On the same day it makes a Royalty payment pursuant to this Section 2(b), Titan shall deliver to Deerfield a written statement showing all Net Sales during such Quarter and Titan’s computation of the Royalty for such Quarter. All Royalty payments shall be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account previously designated in writing to Titan by Deerfield for each of Horizon, Design Fund II and DSS, allocated pursuant to Section 2(d), or such new or additional account(s) as Deerfield shall designate in writing to Titan at least five Business Days prior to the date such Royalty payment shall be due. Titan may withhold from any payment of Royalty withholding taxes that it is required to withhold that are levied upon the Royalty by the United States or any state thereof, provided that Titan shall deliver to Deerfield copies of the filed tax return reporting such payments and official receipts (or such other evidence of payment reasonably acceptable to Deerfield) evidencing that such payments were in fact received by the applicable Governmental Authority.

(c) Cash Management Agreement and Paying Agent Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for so long as Titan has the right to receive (which right is partially being sold to Deerfield hereunder) any royalty payments pursuant to the Novartis Sublicense, Titan shall instruct Novartis to make such payments to the account specified in the Cash Management Agreement and Paying Agent Agreement. Deerfield (through its agent, Deerfield Management Company, L.P.) shall then be entitled to receive payment of the Royalty due hereunder from such account pursuant to the Cash Management Agreement and Paying Agent Agreement, and Titan shall remain obligated to pay any portion of the Royalty due hereunder to Deerfield that is not paid to Deerfield pursuant to the Cash Management Agreement and Paying Agent Agreement. The Parties shall sign such joint written instructions as are required under the Cash Management Agreement and Paying Agent Agreement to give effect to the payment provisions set forth in this Agreement.

(d) Allocation between Horizon, Design Fund II and DSS. Unless otherwise agreed by all Parties, each payment of the Royalty shall be allocated and paid 37.28% to Design Fund II, 7.8% to DSS and 54.92% to Horizon, in each case rounded to the nearest cent ($0.01).

(e) Royalty Payments Following Termination. The termination of this Agreement, including termination due to the expiration of the Royalty Term, shall not terminate the obligation of Titan, or its Affiliates, licensees or assignees, to pay any Royalty accrued prior to termination. Upon termination of this Agreement, Deerfield shall have the right to retain any Royalty already paid by Titan under this Agreement.

(f) Delinquent Royalty Payments. Any Royalty not paid when due shall bear interest at a rate equal to the lower of (i) the highest rate permitted by applicable law, and (ii) one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, compounded monthly.

(g) Audit Right. Upon not less than fourteen days’ written notice, Deerfield shall have the right to audit the books and records of Titan (including those obtained from third parties) relating to sales or other transactions included in the definition of Net Sales for the purposes of determining the correctness of Titan’s

 

5


computation and payment of the Royalty. Such audit may not be conducted more than once in any calendar year and shall be conducted during normal business hours by a national public accounting firm selected by Deerfield at its cost and reasonably acceptable to Titan, provided that such accounting firm enters into a reasonable confidentiality agreement prior to commencing any such audit. Titan shall provide such accounting firm with access to all pertinent books and records and shall reasonably cooperate with such accounting firm’s efforts to conduct such audits. If there has been an underpayment of the aggregate Royalty due for the period being audited of more than $25,000, Titan shall reimburse Deerfield for the reasonable out-of-pocket costs (including accountants’ fees) incurred by Deerfield in connection with such audit. In the event Deerfield claims that any such audit reveals an underpayment of the Royalty, Deerfield will make the audit papers for the relevant period available to Titan.

3. Consideration. The parties agree that the fair value consideration (the “Consideration”) for Titan’s sale and payment of the Royalty is $5,000,000, delivered as follows: Deerfield shall pay to Titan a one-time purchase price payment of $5,000,000, which amount shall be paid in immediately available funds to an account specified by Titan on or before November 30, 2011 (such date, the “Effective Date”).

4. Covenants of Titan.

(a) Net Sales Records. Titan shall keep, or obtain from its sublicensees, complete, true and accurate books and records of all Net Sales of Fanapt Products. Titan shall, as determined in its good faith business judgment or as reasonably requested by Deerfield, enforce its audit and inspection rights under all of the License Agreements and any other agreement relating to Fanapt Products to which it is a party or a third-party beneficiary, and shall take all other commercially reasonable steps, in order to compile and maintain such books and records of Net Sales and to ensure such books and records are reasonably capable of being audited upon Deerfield’s exercise of its rights pursuant to Section 2(g). Titan shall keep such books and records of Net Sales, or cause them to be retained and available for purposes of this Agreement, for at least two (2) years following the Quarter to which they pertain.

(b) Maintenance of Fanapt Rights. Titan shall not take any action, or fail to take any action or enforce any right, that is intended to, or would have the effect of, reducing Net Sales.

(c) Maintenance of Rights Under License Agreements. Without the prior written consent of Deerfield, Titan shall not take any action that would, or fail to take any action if such failure would, (i) modify, relinquish, diminish or terminate, or provide any Person with the right to modify, relinquish, diminish or terminate, any of Titan’s rights under any of the License Agreements or (ii) modify or terminate, or provide any Person with the right to modify or terminate, any of the License Agreements.

(d) No Transfer Without Consent. For so long as the Facility Agreement is in effect, Titan shall not Transfer or consent to the Transfer of any portion of its (i) Fanapt Rights or (ii) rights in, under, or to any of the License Agreements (including any right to receive all or any portion of any royalty or other payment thereunder), without the prior written consent of Deerfield. Following termination or expiration of the Facility Agreement, Titan shall not Transfer or consent to the Transfer of any portion of its (i) Fanapt Rights or (ii) rights in, under or to any of the License Agreement (including any right to receive all or any portion of any royalty or other payment thereunder) that Titan is obligated to pay to Deerfield, or that is necessary for Titan to receive amounts that, if received, it would be obligated to pay to Deerfield, without the prior written consent of Deerfield.

(e) Liquidated Damages. If Titan breaches any of Sections 4(c)–(d), Deerfield shall receive, as liquidated damages for such breach, eighty-eight million dollars ($88,000,000). Titan and Deerfield agree that, in the event of a breach of any of Sections 4(c)-(d), actual damages would be impractical to compute and further agree that the damages set forth herein are a reasonable estimate of the damages Deerfield would actually suffer due to such breach.

(f) Other Covenants. Titan shall promptly furnish to Deerfield copies of all written notices sent or actually received by a member of senior management of Titan or any of its Affiliates relating to any alleged breach, default, amendment, waiver, or termination under any of the License Agreements. Titan shall, at no cost or expense to Deerfield, take all actions, and refrain from taking any other actions, necessary to maintain the License Agreements in full force and effect, including, without limitation, promptly fulfilling all of its obligations and enforcing all of its rights under the License Agreements.

5. Representations and Warranties of Titan. Titan represents and warrants to Deerfield, as of the date hereof, that:

(a) Organization. Titan is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware. Titan has all requisite corporate power and authority to own, lease and operate its properties and to carry on its business as is now being conducted.

(b) Authority; Execution; Enforceability. (i) Titan has all requisite corporate power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement, (ii) no consent of any party, including Sanofi, Novartis or any of their Affiliates, is required for Titan to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement, and (iii) the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the performance of all of its obligations hereunder have been duly authorized by Titan. This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Titan and constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of Titan, enforceable against Titan in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, moratorium, reorganization or other laws of general application relating to or affecting creditors’ rights generally.

(c) Current Effect. (i) The Sanofi License and Novartis Sublicense and (ii) to Titan’s knowledge, the Vanda Sublicense, are in full force and effect and neither Titan nor, to Titan’s knowledge, any other Person is in breach or default of any obligation thereunder. Titan has not granted any license or sublicense with respect to, or entered into any other agreement to Transfer or otherwise encumber, its Fanapt Rights other than a security interest therein in favor of Deerfield. To Titan’s knowledge, other than the License Agreements, there is no other license, sublicense or other agreement that is, or that contains any term, condition or provision which would, if exercised, be reasonably likely to materially reduce or impair Titan’s Fanapt Rights. The royalties payable by Novartis to Titan under the Novartis Sublicense are 8% of Net Sales (as defined therein) up to $200 million and 10% of Net Sales (as defined therein) in excess of $200 million (collectively, the “Titan Entitlement”).

(d) No Violation. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Titan, and Titan’s compliance with the terms and conditions hereof, is not prohibited or limited by, and do not and will not conflict with or result in the breach of or a default under, any provision of the certificate of incorporation, bylaws or other formation documents of Titan, any contract, agreement or instrument binding on or affecting Titan, including any of the License Agreements, or any Legal Requirement applicable to Titan.

(e) Financial Condition. No insolvency proceeding of any character, including, without limitation, bankruptcy, receivership, reorganization, composition or arrangement with creditors, voluntary or involuntary, has been commenced by or against Titan or any of its assets or properties, nor has any such proceeding been threatened. Titan does not contemplate and has not taken any action in contemplation of the institution of any such proceeding.

(f) No Known Infringement or Invalidity. Neither (i) Titan’s possession or exercise of its Fanapt Rights nor (ii) the License Agreements, including any actions permitted or taken thereunder, violate any Legal Requirement or infringe the valid and enforceable intellectual property rights of any Person.

6. Termination. This Agreement shall terminate upon expiration of the Royalty Term. Section 2(e) and Section 7 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
