Bristol-Myers Squibb to Acquire Cardioxyl Pharma

Bristol-Myers Squibb and Cardioxyl Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the companies have signed a definitive agreement under which Bristol-Myers Squibb will acquire all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Cardioxyl, a private biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of cardiovascular disease.

The acquisition will give Bristol-Myers Squibb full rights to Cardioxyl’s lead asset CXL-1427, a novel nitroxyl (HNO) donor (prodrug) in Phase 2 clinical development as an intravenous treatment for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). The transaction includes upfront and near-term milestone payments of up to $300 million and potential additional consideration of up to $1.775 billion upon the achievement of certain development, regulatory and sales milestones

The acquisition of Cardioxyl strengthens Bristol-Myers Squibb’s heart failure pipeline with a Phase 2 asset that has the potential to change the course of the disease rather than simply treating the symptoms
