Alkermes Public Limited Company operates as an integrated, global biopharmaceutical company. The company has a portfolio of approximately 20 commercial drug products and a clinical pipeline of product candidates that address central nervous system disorders, such as addiction, schizophrenia, and depression. Strategy The company’s business strategy includes forming collaborations to develop and commercialize its products and, in so doing, to access technological, financial, marketing, manufacturing and other resources. Products Marketed Products RISPERDAL CONSTA (risperidone long-acting injection) and INVEGA SUSTENNA/XEPLION (paliperidone palmitate extended-release injectable suspension) are long-acting atypical antipsychotics that incorporate the company’s proprietary technologies. RISPERDAL CONSTA uses the company’s polymer-based microsphere injectable extended-release technology to deliver and maintain therapeutic medication levels in the body through just one injection every two weeks. RISPERDAL CONSTA is exclusively manufactured by it and is marketed and sold by Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Janssen Pharmaceutica International, a division of Cilag International AG (Janssen) worldwide. RISPERDAL CONSTA is also approved for the maintenance treatment of bipolar I disorder in approximately 25 other countries worldwide. INVEGA SUSTENNA uses the company’s nanoparticle injectable extended-release technology to increase the rate of dissolution and enable the formulation of an aqueous suspension for once-monthly intramuscular administration. Paliperidone palmitate extended-release for injectable suspension is also approved in the European Union (EU) and other countries worldwide, and is marketed and sold in the EU under the trade name XEPLION. INVEGA SUSTENNA/XEPLION is manufactured and commercialized worldwide by Janssen. AMPYRA/FAMPYRA Dalfampridine extended-release tablets are marketed and sold in the U.S. under the trade name AMPYRA by Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (Acorda).

BYDUREON, a once-weekly formulation of exenatide, the active ingredient in BYETTA (exenatide), uses the company’s polymer-based microsphere injectable extended-release technology. In February 2014, AstraZeneca plc (AstraZeneca) assumed sole responsibility for the development and commercialization of BYDUREON. VIVITROL VIVITROL is a once-monthly injectable medication approved by the FDA for the treatment of alcohol dependence and for the prevention of relapse to opioid dependence, following opioid detoxification. The medication uses the company’s polymer-based microsphere injectable extended-release technology to deliver and maintain therapeutic medication levels in the body through just one injection every four weeks. The company markets and sells VIVITROL in the U.S., and Cilag GmbH International sells VIVITROL in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The Russian regulatory authorities approved VIVITROL for the treatment of alcohol dependence and for the treatment of opioid dependence.
