Navamedic and Orion Corporation sign License & Supply Agreement for Flexilev® in Europe

Oslo, 24 June 2024 – Navamedic ASA and Orion Corporation (“Orion”) have today signed a license and supply agreement for Flexilev®, including the OraFID® dispenser, across Europe, not including Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Iceland, where Navamedic will market and sell the product. Flexilev is a novel prescription treatment for Parkinson’s disease and was added to Navamedic’s product portfolio following the acquisition of Sensidose AB in May 2023.

Through the signed agreement, Orion has been granted the exclusive right to market, distribute, and sell Flexilev® in 27 countries in Europe, including the “big five”: Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the UK. Orion will be the marketing authorization (MA) holder in their territory and assume all rights and responsibilities as the MA holder. Navamedic will be responsible for manufacturing and supply of Flexilev in the OraFID dispenser to Orion.

“The agreement with Orion to market and sell Flexilev in Europe represents a major milestone as part of the commercialization strategy for Flexilev. Since acquiring the product last year, we have identified several significant growth opportunities for Flexilev, with focus on signing an agreement for Europe where we already have sales in our home turf Scandinavia and marketing authorizations in several other countries. Orion has long-standing experience in the field of neurological diseases and has paved the way for Parkinson’s disease treatment in Europe, making it a strong commercial partner that matches Navamedic’s ambition for Flexilev,” says Kathrine Gamborg Andreassen, CEO of Navamedic ASA.

“This agreement will enable Orion to broaden our Parkingson’s Disease portfolio and extend treatment offering to suitable advanced stage patients in Europe”, says Hao Pan, SVP of Branded Products, Orion.

The agreement consists of a non-refundable upfront payment of 2mEUR to Navamedic, upon signature of the agreement. Additionally, Navamedic is entitled to milestone payments of up to 3.5 mEUR upon reimbursement approval in key countries, as well as royalty from net revenue and sales milestone payments.
