Bristol-Myers Squibb and Halozyme Enter Global Collaboration and License Agreement for ENHANZE Technology

Bristol-Myers Squibb is Committed to Enhancing Patient Care
Through Delivery of Cancer Treatments by Subcutaneous Injection

Halozyme to Receive $105 Million Upfront Payment, Plus Future
Milestones and Royalties

Provides Bristol-Myers Squibb Access to ENHANZE technology
for up to 11 Targets

Squibb Company
(NYSE:BMY) and Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc.
(NASDAQ:HALO) today announced a global collaboration and license
agreement to develop subcutaneously administered Bristol-Myers Squibb
immuno-oncology medicines using Halozyme’s ENHANZE®
drug-delivery technology.

We are excited to partner with Halozyme to pursue potential new
approaches to how our medicines are delivered to patients,” said Murdo
, chief commercial officer, Bristol-Myers Squibb. “Through our
work with Halozyme, we hope to improve the patient treatment experience
by developing flexible and convenient treatment delivery options.”

The Halozyme ENHANZE technology is based on a proprietary recombinant
human hyaluronidase enzyme (rHuPH20) that temporarily degrades
hyaluronan — a glycosaminoglycan or chain of natural sugars in the body
— to aid in the dispersion and absorption of other injected therapeutic
drugs. This technology may allow for more rapid delivery of large volume
injectable medications, such as medications that are currently delivered
intravenously, through subcutaneous delivery.

Bristol-Myers Squibb has one of the industry’s most advanced and
extensive immuno-oncology portfolios with a clear commitment to
patient-centered innovation,” said Dr. Helen Torley, president and chief
executive officer of Halozyme. “Through this collaboration we are
excited to explore the potential for ENHANZE to expand the number of
cancer patients who may receive their therapies as a rapidly
administered subcutaneous injection.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Halozyme will receive an initial $105
million for access to the ENHANZEtechnology. Bristol-Myers
Squibb has designated multiple immuno-oncology targets including
programmed death 1 (PD-1) and has an option to select additional targets
within five years from the effective date. The collaboration may extend
to a maximum of 11 targets. Halozyme has the potential to earn milestone
payments of up to $160 million for each of the nominated collaboration
targets and additional milestone payments for combination products,
subject to achievement of specified development, regulatory and
sales-based milestones. In addition, Bristol-Myers Squibb will pay
Halozyme royalties on sales of products using the ENHANZE technology
developed under the collaboration.

The agreement is subject to customary anti-trust clearance by the U.S.
Justice Department and Federal Trade Commission pursuant to the
Hart-Scott-Rodino Act.

For Bristol-Myers Squibb, the transaction is expected to be dilutive to
Non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) in 2017 and 2018 by approximately
$0.01, and by approximately $0.05 in 2019.

About ENHANZE® Technology

Halozyme’s proprietary ENHANZE® drug-delivery
technology is based on its patented recombinant human hyaluronidase
enzyme (rHuPH20). rHuPH20 has been shown to remove traditional
limitations on the volume of biologics that can be delivered
subcutaneously (just under the skin). By using rHuPH20, some biologics
and compounds that are administered intravenously may instead be
delivered subcutaneously. ENHANZE may also benefit subcutaneous
biologics by reducing the need for multiple injections. This delivery
has been shown in studies to reduce health care practitioner time
required for administration and shorten time for drug administration.

At Bristol-Myers Squibb, patients are at the center of everything we do.
Our vision for the future of cancer care is focused on researching and
developing transformational Immuno-Oncology (I-O) medicines for
hard-to-treat cancers that could potentially improve outcomes for these

We are leading the scientific understanding of I-O through our extensive
portfolio of investigational compounds and approved agents. Our
differentiated clinical development program is studying broad patient
populations across more than 50 types of cancers with 14 clinical-stage
molecules designed to target different immune system pathways. Our deep
expertise and innovative clinical trial designs position us to advance
the I-O/I-O, I-O/chemotherapy, I-O/targeted therapies and I-O radiation
therapies across multiple tumors and potentially deliver the next wave
of therapies with a sense of urgency. We also continue to pioneer
research that will help facilitate a deeper understanding of the role of
immune biomarkers and how a patient’s tumor biology can be used as a
guide for treatment decisions throughout their journey.

We understand making the promise of I-O a reality for the many patients
who may benefit from these therapies requires not only innovation on our
part but also close collaboration with leading experts in the field. Our
partnerships with academia, government, advocacy and biotech companies
support our collective goal of providing new treatment options to
advance the standards of clinical practice.
