Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. Key Developments

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited and Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. Announce Settlement Agreement on U.S. Products Liability Litigation

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited and Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. announced that they have agreed to enter into a program to settle, on behalf of all defendants, pending product liability litigation against various Daiichi Sankyo and Forest entities. These cases are related to olmesartan products (Benicar, Benicar HCT, Azor and Tribenzor) and allegations that such products caused sprue-like enteropathy and other severe gastro-intestinal symptoms. The lawsuits were filed beginning in January 2014. The settlement requires, among other thresholds, that at least 95% of all eligible litigants and claimants decide to opt-in to the settlement under certain conditions. Claimants eligible to opt-in to the settlement program, under certain conditions, include those with claims already filed in court (currently almost 2300 cases) and those with certain unfiled claims. Once the agreed-upon thresholds are met, and following a review of claims by a Claims Administrator, claimants who meet specified criteria will receive payouts from the settlement fund, which is capped at $300 million. A portion of the capped amount will also be used for plaintiffs' counsel fees and expenses and the cost of the Claims Administrator as per the settlement agreement.
