Item 1.01.Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On October 2, 2020 (the “Effective Date”), Checkpoint Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Commercial Product Specific Agreement (the “PSA”) with Samsung BioLogics Co., Ltd (“SBL”) for the manufacture of cosibelimab. The PSA is incorporated by reference into the Master Services Agreement that became effective on November 8, 2017 (the “MSA”).


The PSA’s term will expire on the tenth anniversary of the Effective Date. The Company may terminate the PSA on sixty days’ written notice to SBL if it decides not to proceed with further clinical development and/or submission of any Biologics License Application or other similar applications for regulatory approval, subject to certain fees and commitments for which the Company will remain liable. Either the Company or SBL may terminate the PSA in accordance with the terms of the MSA.


The PSA contains representations, warranties, and indemnity obligations customary for agreements of this type.


The foregoing description of the terms of the PSA and MSA do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the agreements, which will be filed with the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending on September 30, 2020. The Company intends to redact certain confidential portions of the PSA and MSA because such confidential portions (i) are not material and (ii) would be competitively harmful if publicly disclosed. 








Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
