Asset Purchase Agreement

On June 2, 2014, Repligen Corporation (the "Company") entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Asset Purchase Agreement") with Refine Technology, LLC, a company organized under the laws of New Jersey ("Refine"), Jerry Shevitz ("Shevitz"), certain members of Refine (together with Shevitz, the "Seller Members"), Refine Technology Sales LLC, a company organized under the laws of New Jersey ("RTS"), and Refine Technology Sales Asia Pte. Ltd., a company organized under the laws of Singapore (collectively with Refine, the Seller Members and RTS, the "Seller Parties"), to acquire the bioprocessing assets owned by the Refine, RTS and Shevitz relating to the conduct of the business of developing, designing, manufacturing, distributing and selling a cell retention device known as the ATF System (the "Business"). Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company (a) purchased and licensed certain of the assets and contract rights related to the Business (the "Purchased Assets") and assumed certain specified liabilities related to the Business from Refine, RTS and Shevitz and (b) purchased services and licenses used in the Business from Refine (collectively, the "Transferred Business" and the acquisition of the Transferred Business, the "Transaction").

On June 2, 2014, the date of the consummation of the Transaction (the "Closing Date"), the Company paid a purchase price of $20.5 million in cash, subject to certain adjustments, and 215,285 shares (the "Stock Consideration") of the Company's common stock, par value of $0.01 per share ("Common Stock"), to Refine for a total purchase price of approximately $24.5 million at the closing of the Transaction (the "Closing Consideration"). The Company funded the cash portion of the Closing Consideration with cash on-hand. The Asset Purchase Agreement includes future contingent payments by the Company to Refine consisting of:

a milestone payment of $1 million if net sales and rentals of products relating to the ATF System achieve a specified level in calendar year 2014;

a milestone payment of $3.5 million if gross sales and rentals of products relating to the ATF System achieve a specified level in calendar year 2015 (up to 25% of which may be paid with shares of Common Stock at the Company's election), plus a capped royalty amount for above-target sales during calendar year 2015 which may result in additional payments of up to $0.85 million; and

a milestone payment of $4.25 million if gross sales and rentals of products relating to the ATF System achieve a specified level in calendar year 2016 (up to 25% of which may be paid with shares of Common Stock at the Company's election), plus a capped royalty amount for above-target sales during calendar year 2016 which may result in additional payments of up to $1.3 million.

Each milestone payment is subject to acceleration upon the occurrence of certain defined events.

The Asset Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and covenants by each party. The Asset Purchase Agreement also provides that certain of the Seller Parties will indemnify the Company for breaches of the warranties and covenants of the Seller Parties, as well as certain other specified matters, subject to certain limitations set forth therein, including, among other things, limitations on the period during which the Company may make certain claims for indemnification and limitations on the amounts for which such Seller Parties may be liable. A portion of the Closing Consideration was contributed to a third-party escrow fund against which the Company may make such claims. The Asset Purchase Agreement further provides that the Company will be entitled to offset any indemnifiable losses against any future contingent payments payable to Refine.

The Asset Purchase Agreement also contains non-competition and non-solicitation clauses under which the Seller Parties must not, for five years following the consummation of the Transaction, (i) engage in any business competitive with the ATF System, (ii) solicit any customer, supplier or other business relation relating to the Transferred Business, or (iii) solicit any employee of Refine hired by the Company for a period of one year following their employment with the Company. Under a Transitions Services Agreement entered into in connection with the Asset Purchase Agreement, Refine will provide transition services, including to assist the Company in the conduct of the Business, following the


Closing Date for a period of up to six months, subject to extension. Shevitz and another member of the Refine management team have also agreed to provide consulting services to the Company following the cessation of the transition services period.
