TAKEDA Research Activities, if any, conducted by TAKEDA during the Research Program Term to the extent not previously included in the reports described above.
     3.5 Selection of Program Targets.
          3.5.1 Selection of Program Targets.
                    (a) Initial Program Targets. The Parties hereby acknowledge and agree that three (3) Program Targets, as set forth on Schedule 2A, have been designated by the Parties as of the Effective Date. The Parties further acknowledge and agree that there is a [***]that [***] will [***] for the [***] and that the Parties shall promptly, but in no event later than [***] months from the initiation of ARCHEMIX Research Activities against any such Program Target, evaluate the need to replace each such Program Target with a Pre-approved Replacement Target. For purposes of clarity, if after [***] months from the initiation of ARCHEMIX Research Activities against a Program Target no Collaboration Aptamers binding to such Program Target have been identified, either Party shall have the right to designate such Program Target a Failed Target; provided, that, if the other Party disagrees with the designation, the Research Activities shall be carried out with respect to such Program Target for an additional [***] months and if no Aptamers have been identified upon the expiration of this [***] month period, such Program Target shall be deemed to have been designated a [***] by the JSC for purposes of this Agreement without any further action of either Party.
                    (b) Target Replacement List. The Parties hereby acknowledge and agree that three (3)Targets, as set forth on the Target Replacement List on Schedule 2B, have been designated by the Parties as replacement Targets as of the Effective Date (each such Target, a “Pre-approved Replacement Target”). TAKEDA shall have the right at any time during the first two (2) Fiscal Years of the Research Program Term to request that a Pre-approved Replacement Target on the Target Replacement List be replaced with another new Pre-approved Replacement Target for any reason in accordance with Section 3.5.1(c). Upon designation of a Pre-approved Replacement Target as a Program Target, the Pre-approved Replacement Target will be removed from the Target Replacement List and no additional Target will be added in its place on the Target Replacement List.
                    (c) Replacement of Pre-approved Replacement Targets on Target Replacement List. To the extent TAKEDA has the right to propose that a Target be added to the Target Replacement List as a replacement for one of the then named Pre-approved Replacement Targets as described in Section 3.5.1(b), TAKEDA shall provide written notice to ARCHEMIX. ARCHEMIX shall accept or reject the proposed Target within [***] days after receipt of such notice from TAKEDA. A Target proposed by TAKEDA for inclusion as a Pre-approved Replacement Target on the Target Replacement List shall only be rejected by ARCHEMIX if: (i) ARCHEMIX is prohibited by an executed contract from licensing Aptamers against such proposed Target or its [***](s), (ii) ARCHEMIX is in active negotiations with a Third Party with respect to a license, collaboration or similar agreement relating to Aptamers against such Target or its [***](s), (iii) ARCHEMIX is actively researching or developing, and has not ceased to research or develop, for its own benefit, Aptamers against such Target or its [***](s) under an internal research or development program against such Target; or (iv) ARCHEMIX reasonably believes in good faith that the conduct of research and/or Development activities with respect to
Portions of this Exhibit were omitted and have been filed separately with the Secretary of the Commission pursuant to the Company’s application requesting confidential treatment under Rule 406 of the Securities Act.

27


 

such Target as contemplated by this Agreement would infringe the Patent Rights or misappropriate the Technology of a Third Party. Should ARCHEMIX reject a proposed replacement Target for one of the Pre-approved Replacement Targets on the Target Replacement List under Section 3.5.1(c)(iii), if (i) ARCHEMIX discontinues its internal research for such Target during the Research Program Term, and (ii) TAKEDA is still able to replace a Pre-approved Replacement Target at such time, then ARCHEMIX shall notify TAKEDA of the ability to replace one of the Pre-approved Replacement Targets on Target Replacement List with such previously nominated Target.
                    (d) Replacement of Program Targets. If at any time during the first two (2) full years of the Research Program Term following the Effective Date, (i) the JSC designates a Program Target as a Failed Target or (ii) a Program Target becomes a Waived Target, then (A) all activities under the Research Program with respect to such Failed Target or Waived Target shall cease; and (B) TAKEDA shall name one of the Pre-approved Replacement Targets from the Target Replacement List as a Program Target in place of such Failed Target or Waived Target within [***] days of such date and ARCHEMIX shall begin work to the extent possible on such new Program Target immediately thereafter.
                    (e) Obligations of JPT. As promptly as practicable after designation of a new Program Target in accordance with Section 3.5.1(d), the JPT shall (i) develop and submit to the JSC for its approval the OLSC for such new Program Target and (ii) prepare an update to the Annual Research Plan to (A) include the ARCHEMIX Research Activities to be conducted to identify Program Aptamers against such new Program Target for potential nomination as an Optimized Lead Compound and (B) identify any Proprietary Materials, TAKEDA Background Technology and/or TAKEDA Research Activities that will be provided or conducted by TAKEDA pursuant to Section 3.3.2(a).
          3.5.2 Termination of Replacement Right. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, TAKEDA’s right to add Pre-approved Replacement Targets to the Target Replacement List pursuant to Section 3.5.1(b) and/or replace Program Targets pursuant to Section 3.5.1(d) shall terminate on the second full year anniversary of the Effective Date of the Agreement.
     3.6 Identification of Optimized Lead Compounds. Within [***] days after its receipt of each report from ARCHEMIX pursuant to Section 3.4.2 identifying a Program Aptamer as meeting the applicable OLSC (or which either Party reasonably believes should be an Optimized Lead Compound), the JPT shall review the data and information and determine whether to nominate the Program Aptamer to the JSC for designation as an Optimized Lead Compound. If the JPT elects to nominate any such Program Aptamer as an Optimized Lead Compound, the JPT shall promptly furnish all available information to the JSC. The JSC shall consider such nomination within [***] days, and if the JSC agrees that the Program Aptamer meets the OLSC, it shall be designated as such by the JSC and such Program Aptamer shall be deemed to be an Optimized Lead Compound for purposes of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the above, TAKEDA shall have the exclusive right to affirmatively designate a given Program Aptamer as an Optimized Lead Compound at any time for any reason. For purposes of clarity, any decision that a Program Aptamer does not meet the applicable OLSC and thus should not be

this Section 5.3.2 that relates to whether or not a milestone event has occurred shall be referred to the JSC to be resolved in accordance with Section 2.1.6 and if after the Research Term, under Section 13.1.
     5.4 Payment of Royalties; Royalty Rates; Accounting and Records.
          5.4.1 Payment of Royalties.
     (a) Royalty Rates in the [***]. TAKEDA shall pay ARCHEMIX the following non-refundable, non-creditable royalties based on Annual Net Sales of each Product in [***] in each Fiscal Year (or partial Fiscal Year) commencing with the First Commercial Sale of such Product in [***] and ending upon the last day of the Royalty Term for such Product in [***], at the following rates:
     
Annual Net Sales   Royalty Rate (%)
[***]
  [***]%
[***]
  [***]%
[***]
  [***]%
[***]
  [***]%
[***]
  [***]%
     The following hypothetical example illustrates the calculation of royalties under Section 5.4.1(a): If, in any Fiscal Year during the Term, Annual Net Sales of a Product are $[***], the applicable royalty would be $[***], [***]% of Net Sales for Net Sales up to $[***] ($[***]), [***]% of Net Sales for Net Sales over $[***] and up to $[***] ($[***]) and [***]% of Net Sales for Net Sales over $[***] ($[***]).
                    (b) Royalty Rates in the ROW. TAKEDA shall pay ARCHEMIX a royalty based on Annual Net Sales of each Product in each country or countries in the ROW Territory in each Fiscal Year (or partial Fiscal Year) commencing with the First Commercial Sale of such Product in any country in the ROW Territory and ending upon the last day of the Royalty Term for such Product in such country or countries, at a royalty rate equal to [***] percent ([***]%).
                    (c) Royalty Offsets; Requested Chemistry. In the event that TAKEDA, in order to practice the license granted to it under Section 7.2 of this Agreement in any country in the Territory, is required to and actually makes milestone and/or royalty payments to any Third Party (“Third Party Payments”) in order to obtain (i) a license to an issued patent or patents in the absence of which the oligonucleotide portion of the Product could not legally be imported, sold, exported, or otherwise exploited in such country and/or (ii) a license to an issued patent or patents, in the absence of which the Licensed Patent Rights cannot legally be practiced in such country for using, importing, offering for sale, selling, exporting or otherwise exploiting such Product, then the royalties payable to ARCHEMIX for such Product under Section 5.4.1(a) and/or (b) with respect to such country may be reduced by [***] percent ([***]%) of the amount of such Third Party Payments. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TAKEDA shall be solely responsible for the
Portions of this Exhibit were omitted and have been filed separately with the Secretary of the Commission pursuant to the Company’s application requesting confidential treatment under Rule 406 of the Securities Act.

payment of any Third Party Payments relating to a license that is specific to a particular Program Target and/or the use of a particular Program Target and, accordingly, the royalties payable to ARCHEMIX pursuant to Section 5.4.1(a) and/or (b) shall not be reduced by such Third Party Payments. In the event TAKEDA requests ARCHEMIX to use in the Research Program molecules, methods and/or processes other than Program Chemistry (“Requested Chemistry”), which TAKEDA has the right to request in its sole discretion, thereby giving rise to the obligation to pay milestone and/or royalty payments to a Third Party (“Third Party Chemistry Payments”), then TAKEDA shall be solely responsible for the payment of such Third Party Chemistry Payments and the royalties payable to ARCHEMIX pursuant to Section 5.4.1(a) and/or (b) shall not be reduced by such Third Party Chemistry Payments. For purposes of clarity, any license payments and/or damages relating to the use of the SELEX Process or the SELEX Technology shall be treated under Section 9.2.2(c).
                    (d) Generic Products. Prior to the expiration of the Royalty Term as to a given Product, in the event that Third Party(ies) sells Generic Product(s) in a country in which such Product(s) is then being sold and such [***] is not [***] by a [***]under the [***] in such country, then, during the period in which unit sales of the Generic Product(s) by such Third Party(ies) are equal to at least [***] ([***]%) of TAKEDA’s volume-based market share of the Product(s) in such country (as measured by prescriptions or other similar information available in such country), the royalties payable with respect to such Product(s) in such country as specified in Section 5.4.1 shall be reduced by [***] percent ([***]%). Notwithstanding the foregoing, TAKEDA’s obligation to pay the full amount of royalties payable under Section 5.4.1(a) shall be reinstated on the first day of the Calendar Quarter immediately following the Calendar Quarter in which sales of such Generic Product(s) account for less than [***] percent ([***]%) of TAKEDA’s volume-based market share in such country.
                    (e) Maximum Adjustment of Royalty Rate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, under no circumstances shall the royalty rates in Section 5.4.1 be cumulatively reduced below [***] percent ([***]%) of the rates set forth therein.
                    (f) Know-How Payments. The Parties hereby acknowledge and agree that any royalties that are payable for a Product during the Royalty Term for such Product for which no Patent Rights exist shall be in consideration of (i) the performance by ARCHEMIX of the Research Program including ARCHEMIX’s expertise in and use of the SELEX Process to identify the Products; (ii) the disclosure by ARCHEMIX to TAKEDA of results obtained in the Research Program; (iii) the licenses granted to TAKEDA hereunder with respect to Licensed Technology and Joint Technology that are not within the claims of any Patent Rights Controlled by ARCHEMIX; (iv) the restrictions on ARCHEMIX in Section 7.6.1; and (v) the “head start” afforded to TAKEDA by each of the foregoing.
                    (g) Payment Dates and Reports. Royalty payments shall be made by TAKEDA within [***] days after the end of each [***] commencing with the [***] in which the First Commercial Sale of a Product occurs. TAKEDA shall also provide, at the same time each such payment is made, a report showing: (a) the Net Sales of each Product by type of Product and country in the Territory; (b) the basis for any deductions from gross amounts billed or invoiced to determine Net Sales; (c) the applicable royalty rates for such Product; (d) the exchange rates used

in calculating any of the foregoing; and (e) a calculation of the amount of royalty due to ARCHEMIX.
(h) Combination Products. The earned royalty due on a Combination Product shall be determined pro rata on a Combination Product-by-Combination Product and country-by-country basis, by multiplying Net Sales of the Combination Product by the fraction A/(A+B), where A is the invoice price of the Product when sold separately and B is the invoice price of the Supplemental Product when sold separately by TAKEDA, its Affiliate or its Sublicensee or, if not sold by them, then the average invoice price when sold separately by Third Parties. If the Supplemental Product in the Combination Product is not sold separately by any Person, Net Sales shall be calculated by multiplying actual net revenues derived from sales of the Combination Product by the fraction A/C, where A is as previously defined and C is the invoice price of the Combination Product sold by TAKEDA, its Affiliate or its Sublicensee. For purposes of clarity, the average invoice price and the actual net revenues for any Supplemental Product shall be for a quantity comparable to that contained in the Combination Product and shall be of the same class, purity and potency as that contained in the Combination Product. If neither the Product nor the Supplemental Product included in the Combination Product are sold separately, Net Sales shall be calculated based on the mutual written agreement of the Parties as to a reasonable allocation between the Product and the Supplemental Product, taking into account total manufacturing costs, proprietary protection and relative contribution thereof. If the Parties are unable to reach agreement on an appropriate method of determining royalties for a Combination Product, (“Disputed Royalty Matter”), such Disputed Royalty Matter shall be resolved in accordance with Section 13.1.
          5.4.2 Records; Audit Rights. TAKEDA and its Affiliates and Sublicensees shall keep and maintain for [***] years from the date of each payment of royalties hereunder complete and accurate records of gross sales and Net Sales by TAKEDA and its Affiliates and Sublicensees of each Product, in sufficient detail to allow royalties to be determined accurately. ARCHEMIX shall have the right for a period of [***] years after receiving any such royalty payment to appoint at its expense an independent certified public accountant reasonably acceptable to TAKEDA to audit the relevant records of TAKEDA and its Affiliates and Sublicensees to verify that the amount of such payment was correctly determined. TAKEDA and its Affiliates and Sublicensees shall each make its records available for audit by such independent certified public accountant during regular business hours at such place or places where such records are customarily kept, upon [***] days written notice from ARCHEMIX, solely to verify that royalty payments hereunder were correctly determined. Such audit right shall not be exercised by ARCHEMIX more than once in any Fiscal Year. All records made available for audit shall be deemed to be Confidential Information of TAKEDA. The results of each audit, if any, shall be binding on both Parties. In the event there was an underpayment by TAKEDA hereunder, TAKEDA shall promptly (but in any event no later than [***] days after TAKEDA’s receipt of the report so concluding) make payment to ARCHEMIX of any shortfall. ARCHEMIX shall bear the full cost of such audit unless such audit discloses an underreporting by TAKEDA of more than [***] percent ([***]%) of the aggregate amount of royalties payable in any Fiscal Year, in which case TAKEDA shall reimburse ARCHEMIX for all costs incurred by ARCHEMIX in connection with such audit.

          5.4.3 Overdue Royalties and Milestones. All royalty payments not made within the time period set forth in Section 5.4.1(g), including underpayments discovered during an audit, and all milestone payments not made within the time period specified in Section 5.4.1(a) or (b), shall bear interest at a rate of [***] percent ([***]%) per month from the due date until paid in full or, if less, the maximum interest rate permitted by Applicable Laws. Any such overdue royalty or milestone payment shall, when made, be accompanied by, and credited first to, all interest so accrued.
          5.4.4 Payments. All payments made by TAKEDA hereunder shall be made by wire transfer from a banking institution in the United States in United States Dollars in accordance with instructions given in writing from time to time by ARCHEMIX and shall be free and clear of any taxes, duties, levies, fees or charges including any withholding taxes.
          5.4.5 Taxes.

          (a) Exclusivity Obligations. Except as provided in this Section 7.6.1(a) and Section 7.6.1(b), during the Exclusivity Term, ARCHEMIX shall not, and shall cause each of its Affiliates to not, either on its own, or with, or for the benefit of, any Third Party, research, develop or commercialize (i) with respect to each Program Target, any aptamer directed and binding to such Program Target or the [***] therefor identified on Schedule 7 attached hereto, and (ii) with respect to each Pre-approved Replacement Target, any aptamer directed and binding to such Pre-approved Replacement Target or the [***] therefor identified on Schedule 7 attached hereto, except, in each case, for the conduct by ARCHEMIX of Permitted Activities. For purposes of clarity, the restrictions set forth in this Section 7.6.1(a) shall not apply to (A) Permitted Activities or (B) the exercise by ARCHEMIX of its rights to develop and commercialize any Waived Compound, Failed Compound or Terminated Product pursuant to Section 7.1.2(c) or Section 7.1.2(d). Also for purposes of clarity, if a Pre-approved Replacement Target becomes a Program Target pursuant to Section 3.5.1(d), the Exclusivity Term applicable to such Pre-approved Replacement Target shall be the Exclusivity Term applicable to Program Targets.
          (b) Effect of Change of Control. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 7.6.1(a) above, if at any time during the Exclusivity Term, ARCHEMIX consummates a transaction that results in a Change of Control of ARCHEMIX and that involves a Third Party that has a Competitive Program, the existence and continuation of such Competitive Program following the Change of Control shall not be deemed to be in conflict with, or a breach of, Section 7.6.1(a). In the event that ARCHEMIX consummates a transaction during the Exclusivity Term that (i) results in a Change of Control of ARCHEMIX and (ii) involves a Third Party that has a Competitive Program, ARCHEMIX shall notify TAKEDA in writing within [***] days of the closing of such transaction, which notice shall (A) identify the Competitive Program and (B) indicate whether or not the Third Party has determined to discontinue and/or divest itself of such Competitive Program. If ARCHEMIX indicates the intention of the Third Party to discontinue or divest itself of such Competitive Program, it shall have a period of up to [***] months of the closing of the transaction to do so. To the extent that ARCHEMIX indicated in its notice that (i) the Third Party has not made a commitment to discontinue and/or divest itself of such Competitive Program within [***] months of the closing, (ii) ARCHEMIX fails to provide such notice or (iii) the Third Party fails to discontinue or divest itself of the Competitive Program within [***] months as provided above, TAKEDA will thereafter have the option to (A) designate such Program Target as a Discontinued Competitive Target and direct ARCHEMIX to discontinue all further work on such designated Discontinued Competitive Target; or (B) to the extent that TAKEDA is either Developing or Commercializing a Product against a Program Target for which a Competitive Program exists, limit the scope and content of the reports to ARCHEMIX otherwise called for under Section 4.6 solely with respect to that Product. For purposes of clarity, a Discontinued Competitive Target shall never be deemed to be a Failed Target or a Waived Target and the license grants associated with such Failed Target or Waived Target under Section 7.1.2(c) shall not apply to such Discontinued Competitive Target.
          7.6.2 TAKEDA. During the Exclusivity Term, TAKEDA shall not, and shall cause each of its Affiliates to not, either on its own, or with, or for the benefit of, any Third Party, research, develop or commercialize any aptamer binding to a Program Target, except as provided under this Agreement.

FORM OF PRESS RELEASE
Archemix and Takeda to Enter into Collaboration for Discovery and Development of Aptamer Therapeutics
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and OSAKA, Japan – June 11, 2007 – Archemix Corp. (“Archemix”) and Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (“Takeda”) announced today that both parties have signed a multi-year, three target agreement that focuses on the discovery, development, and commercialization of first-in-class aptamer-based therapeutics.
Under the agreement, Archemix will receive an upfront payment of $6 million from Takeda to discover and generate product candidates to three disease-associated targets identified by Takeda, and Takeda will be granted an exclusive, worldwide right for research, development, manufacturing and commercialization for any resulting aptamer-based products. Archemix will also receive committed research funding and research and clinical development milestone payments for each target selected for therapeutic development. In addition, Archemix will earn royalties and milestones on worldwide sales of the developed aptamers commercialized by Takeda. Detailed financial terms were not disclosed.
“Our alliance with Takeda is the sixth major partnership we have formed over within the past year and is a major step in the continued validation of aptamer therapeutics,” said Errol De Souza, Ph.D., President and CEO, Archemix. “Takeda is an excellent partner for Archemix and this collaboration is a key component of successfully implementing our strategy of forming collaborations with multi national pharmaceutical companies to rapidly advance aptamer programs into clinical development.”
“We are very impressed with Archemix’ track record of success in creating therapeutic aptamers,” said Dr. Shigenori Ohkawa, General manager of Pharmaceutical Research Division, Takeda. “Archemix is the leader in the discovery of aptamer therapeutics and we believe that, as a class, aptamers have the potential to create a new paradigm of treatments in a broad spectrum of diseases, and we believe this collaboration will surely contribute to enhancing our R&D pipeline as source for future growth of Takeda.”
About Aptamers
Aptamers are single-stranded nucleic acids that form well-defined three dimensional shapes, allowing them to bind target molecules in a manner that is conceptually similar to antibodies. Aptamers combine the optimal characteristics of small molecules and antibodies, including high specificity and affinity, chemical stability, low immunogenicity and the ability to target protein-
