BioAlliance Pharma SA: Q1 2008: Significant Progress at an International Level

PARIS, France | Posted on April 30th, 2008

Summary of key events in the first quarter of 2008:

* Loramyc® was granted five European Marketing Authorizations: in United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, Belgium and Luxembourg. The first two MAs will allow BioAlliance Pharma to receive an additional payment of 4.5 million Euros from its partner SpePharm, in accordance with the joint-venture contract signed in 2007. Half of this amount has been included in the turnover for the first quarter as 50 % of the SpeBio joint venture is held by BioAlliance. The turnover of 3,836k Euros thus includes 2.25 million Euros linked to the European MAs, as well as a quota of payments on signature received in 2007 from the European joint-venture SpeBio and the exclusive license holder for the United States, PAR Pharmaceutical, which are spread over several years in accordance with IFRS standards.
* Signing, on March 28th, of an exclusive licensing agreement with the Korean company Handok for the marketing of Loramyc® in Korea, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia. This agreement includes payments spread over time for a total of 12 million US dollars, including 1.5 million dollars received in April. This amount has not been included in the first quarter turnover and will be spread over a period of 27 months starting on April 1, 2008.
* Continuation of the Loramyc® launch in France by the team of hospital sales representatives from the BioAlliance Pharma subsidiary. The interest of hospital specialists for the product has been largely confirmed with a 35% increase in treatment days between December 2007 and March 2008. This confirms the dynamics of the launch. Furthermore, an epidemiological observatory on esophageal candidiasis was started at the end of March in 35 centers, for a better assessment of hospital practice and treatment of this pathology.

"The beginning of 2008 has been marked by an acceleration in our international coverage, obtaining several MAs in Europe, a new agreement in Asia, and the commercial validation of our first product Loramyc®. The hospital launch in France has been in accordance with our forecasts" said Dominique Costantini, President and CEO of BioAlliance Pharma. "We are preparing for the first European launches in 2008 and the potential opening of the American market in 2009, following the positive results of the Loramyc® pivotal trial in the United States. The progress is major, both on a commercial and a development level."
