Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Stat


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 10, 2014, TESARO, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary TESARO Development, Ltd. (collectively, "TESARO") entered into a Collaboration and Exclusive License Agreement (the "Agreement") with AnaptysBio, Inc. ("AnaptysBio"), a privately-held therapeutic antibody company located in San Diego, California. Under the terms of the Agreement, TESARO has obtained an exclusive, royalty-bearing, sublicenseable worldwide license to research, develop, manufacture, market and sell products based on AnaptysBio's proprietary technology for the discovery, generation and optimization of antibodies targeting certain immune checkpoint proteins. Specifically, TESARO received exclusive rights to monospecific antibody product candidates targeting TIM-3, LAG-3 and PD-1 and dual-reactive antibody product candidates targeting PD-1/TIM-3 and PD-1/LAG-3. AnaptysBio will be responsible for performing initial discovery and certain pre-clinical development activities for therapeutic antibodies selected through the collaboration. TESARO is solely responsible for clinical, regulatory and other activities necessary to develop and commercialize antibodies selected under each of three development programs, and will share responsibility for pre-clinical activities with AnaptysBio.

Under the terms of the Agreement, TESARO is obligated to make an up-front, non-creditable and non-refundable cash payment of $17.0 million to AnaptysBio. TESARO is also required to reimburse AnaptysBio, on a quarterly basis for up to two years from the effective date of the Agreement, for specified costs incurred by AnaptysBio for its discovery pre-clinical development activities covered by the Agreement. For each of the three development programs, TESARO will also be required to make milestone payments to AnaptysBio of up to $18.0 million if certain research and development milestones are achieved, and up to an additional $90.0 million of milestones if certain U.S. and non-U.S. regulatory submissions and approvals occur in initial and subsequent indications. TESARO will also be required to pay AnaptysBio tiered single-digit royalties, on a product-by-product basis, based on the amount of worldwide annual net sales achieved, and additional commercial milestone payments if specified levels of annual net sales of a product are attained.

The Agreement expires on the earliest date after which no further payments are due to AnaptysBio, unless earlier terminated. Either party may terminate the Agreement in the event of an uncured material breach by the other party. TESARO may terminate the Agreement in its entirety or terminate a program, at any time, upon 90 days prior written notice to AnaptysBio, subject to a wind-down period during which TESARO's obligation to reimburse AnaptysBio for specified costs would continue.
