Safeguard Scientifics To Realize Addl Proceeds From Lilly's Acquisition Of Avid

Safeguard Scientifics, Inc. (SFE: Quote) said it expects to receive an additional $5.6 million in proceeds from Eli Lilly and Co.'s (LLY: Quote) acquisition of former partner company Avid Radiopharmaceuticals, Inc., which took place in December 2010.

Under terms of the deal, Eli Lilly acquired all outstanding shares of Avid for an upfront payment of $300 million. This generated initial net proceeds of $32.3 million for Safeguard. In addition, Safeguard recently received $3.4 million, which had been held in escrow.

On April 6, 2012, Lilly and Avid Radiopharmaceuticals announced that the FDA approved Amyvid, a radioactive diagnostic agent indicated for brain imaging of beta-amyloid plaques in patients with cognitive impairment who are being evaluated for Alzheimer's Disease and other causes of cognitive decline. The achievement of this milestone triggered the payment of $5.6 million in additional proceeds to Safeguard, increasing expected total net proceeds to $41.3 million and a 3.4x cash-on-cash return.
