The Company, together with Vectura, exclusively licensed key intellectual property integral to the development of both products to Novartis in April 2005 and is eligible for royalties on global product sales.

Ultibro® Breezhaler® is an inhaled once-daily fixed-dose combination of indacaterol (a long-acting beta 2 agonist; LABA) and glycopyrronium bromide (a long-acting muscarinic antagonist; LAMA) and Seebri® Breezhaler® is an inhaled fixed-dose formulation of glycopyrronium bromide (a long-acting muscarinic antagonist; LAMA). Both products are approved and launched in over 90 countries worldwide, including the US, EU and Japan.

Both products will be promoted in China by Huizheng (Shanghai) Technology Co., Ltd. (Huizheng), a group company of Zheijiang Hisun Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. under license from Beijing Novartis Pharma Co., Ltd and Sandoz (China) Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd, both controlled subsidiaries of Novartis.
