Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;
Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On November 13, 2013, Earl Webb Henry, M.D., informed the Board of Directors ("Board") of Repligen Corporation (the "Company") that he was resigning from his position as a member of the Board as of December 31, 2013. Dr. Henry's resignation is not the result of any disagreement with the Board or with the Company's management.

On November 15, 2013, John G. Cox was elected to the Board. Mr. Cox currently serves as the Executive Vice President of Pharmaceutical Operations & Technology for Biogen Idec Inc.

Mr. Cox will receive cash and equity compensation pursuant to the Company's non-employee director compensation policy as set forth in the Company's Amended and Restated Director Compensation Policy (the "Director Compensation Policy"). Pursuant to the terms of the Director Compensation Policy, Mr. Cox received an option to purchase 24,000 shares of Common Stock on the date he joined the Board (the "Initial Board Option"). The Initial Board Option vests equally over a three-year period from the date of grant. The Initial Board Option has a term of ten years, subject to early termination in the event of death, removal or resignation from the Board. The Initial Board Option has an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date the Initial Board Option is granted. In addition, under the Director Compensation Policy, each non-employee director receives an annual retainer for service on the Board and committees of the Board, and except in the year following a non-employee director's first election to the Board by the stockholders, each non-employee director reelected to the Board by the stockholders is awarded annually restricted stock units.

In connection with Mr. Cox's appointment to the Board, he has been named to the Audit Committee of the Board.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Cox and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Cox was selected as a director. There have been no transactions since the beginning of the Company's last fiscal year, or any currently proposed transaction, in which the Company was or is to be a participant, in which the amount involved exceeds $120,000, and in which Mr. Cox had, or will have, a direct or indirect material interest.

The Company has issued a press release announcing Mr. Cox's election to the Board, and Dr. Henry's resignation from the Board, and has attached a copy of such press release as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
