[QUOTE]Originally posted by Peaser: [QB] 8-Jan-2016 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement, Results of Operations and Financial Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement. On January 4, 2016, MannKind Corporation (the "Company") received written notice from sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC ("Sanofi") of Sanofi's election to terminate in its entirety the License and Collaboration Agreement, dated August 11, 2014, by and among the Company, Technosphere International C.V., MannKind Netherlands B.V. and Sanofi (the "License Agreement"). Sanofi's notice indicated that the termination was pursuant to Sanofi's right to terminate the License Agreement upon Sanofi's good faith determination that the commercialization of AFREZZA is no longer economically viable in the United States, in which case the effective date of termination will be April 3, 2016. In the alternative, Sanofi indicated that the termination was also pursuant to its right to terminate the License Agreement for any reason, in which case the effective date of termination will be July 4, 2016. The applicable effective date of termination is referred to herein as the "Termination Date." The description of the material terms of the License Agreement set forth under Item 5 of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on August 11, 2014, is incorporated by reference herein. Pursuant to the terms of the License Agreement, the Company and Sanofi are required to use diligent efforts to facilitate the smooth and orderly transition of relevant obligations and rights to the Company with respect to development and commercialization activities related to AFREZZA, and are also required to negotiate in good faith a written transition agreement for this purpose. As a result of the foregoing termination, effective on the Termination Date and thereafter during any period which Sanofi is required to perform any wind-down activities pursuant to the terms of the License Agreement, the rights granted to Sanofi under the License Agreement to develop and commercialize AFREZZA will become non-exclusive and the Company will have the right to engage one or more other distributors and/or licensees of AFREZZA. Sanofi and its affiliates will also be required to cease all commercialization activities related to AFREZZA if requested by the Company after the Termination Date. All profits and losses from AFREZZA product sales by Sanofi or its affiliates after the Termination Date, if any, will continue to be shared 65% by Sanofi and 35% by the Company pursuant to the terms of the License Agreement. The Company and Sanofi are also parties to a Supply Agreement, dated August 11, 2014 (the "Supply Agreement"), pursuant to which the Company is required to supply Sanofi or its affiliates or its sublicensees such quantities of AFREZZA as requested by Sanofi to cover its commercial requirements. As a result of the termination of the License Agreement, the Supply Agreement will terminate by its terms on the Termination Date. In addition to the License Agreement and Supply Agreement, the Company and Aventisub LLC, an affiliate of Sanofi, are parties to a Senior Secured Revolving Promissory Note, dated September 23, 2014 (the "Loan Facility") and a Guaranty and Security Agreement (the "Security Agreement"). Both the Loan Facility and the Security Agreement remain in effect. The original maturity date of September 23, 2024 for repayment of the outstanding principal amount of the loans under the Loan Facility will not be affected by the termination of the License Agreement. The foregoing descriptions of the License Agreement and Supply Agreement, are not complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to such agreements, copies of which were filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2, respectively, to the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, filed with the SEC on November 10, 2014. Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition. On January 5, 2016, the Company held a conference call to discuss, among other things, the notice of termination reported under Item 1.02 above. During the conference call, the Company's Chief Financial Officer disclosed the expected cash position of the Company as of December 31, 2015. The figure disclosed during the conference call was intended to capture both cash and cash equivalents. This projected financial result is preliminary and unaudited, and may differ from what will be reflected in the Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2015. An excerpt of the conference call transcript relating to this financial result is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report and is incorporated by reference herein. [/QB][/QUOTE]
