Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On September 30, 2020, Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it reached a settlement with Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. (“Teva”) resolving the patent litigation in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. The Company brought this litigation in response to Teva’s filing of an Abbreviated New Drug Application, which sought approval to market a generic version of Xtampza ER prior to the expiration of the Company’s applicable patents.


Pursuant to the terms of the settlement, which is subject to review by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, the Company will grant Teva a license to market its generic version of Xtampza ER in the United States beginning on or after September 2, 2033 (subject to U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval, and acceleration under certain circumstances). As a result of the settlement, Teva has agreed to a consent judgment confirming that its proposed generic products infringe upon the Company’s asserted patents and that those patents are valid and enforceable with respect to Teva’s proposed generic products. Additional details regarding the settlement are confidential.
