REGENXBIO License Agreement (XLMTM/Pompe)

In July 2013, we entered into an exclusive license agreement with REGENXBIO Inc. (formerly ReGenX Biosciences, LLC), or REGENXBIO. Under the agreement, REGENXBIO granted us an exclusive worldwide license under certain patent rights to make, have made, use, import, sell and offer for sale licensed products in the treatment of both XLMTM and Pompe disease using both AAV8 and AAV9.

As consideration for the licensed rights, we paid REGENXBIO an initial fee of $0.3 million and 50,228 shares of our common stock. We will also owe REGENXBIO (i) an annual maintenance fee; (ii) up to $8.85 million in combined milestone fees per licensed product related to XLMTM and up to $8.85 million in combined milestone fees per licensed product related to Pompe disease, a small portion of which may be paid in the form of shares of our common stock; (iii) mid to high single digit royalty percentages on net sales of licensed products and (iv) mid- single digit to low twenties royalty percentages of any sublicense fees we receive from sublicensees for the licensed patent rights.

We are obligated to achieve certain development milestones, including submission to the FDA and subsequent effectiveness of an IND for each indication within a specified time period, which we may extend for additional time for a specified number of extensions upon the payment of a fee.

The agreement will expire upon the expiration, lapse, abandonment or invalidation of the last claim of the licensed patent rights to expire, lapse or become abandoned or unenforceable in all countries worldwide. We may terminate the agreement upon prior written notice. REGENXBIO may terminate the agreement immediately if we or our affiliates become insolvent, if we are late by a specified number of days in paying money due under the agreement or if we or our affiliates commence any action against REGENXBIO or its licensors to declare or render any claim of the licensed patent rights invalid or unenforceable. Either party may terminate the agreement for material breach that is not cured within a specified number of days.

REGENXBIO License Agreement (Crigler-Najjar Syndrome)

In November 2015, we entered into a second license agreement with REGENXBIO. Under the agreement, REGENXBIO granted us an exclusive worldwide license under certain patent rights to make, have made, use, import, sell and offer for sale licensed products for the treatment of Crigler-Najjar syndrome in humans using AAV8.

As consideration for the licensed rights, we paid REGENXBIO an upfront fee of $0.2 million and an additional $0.4 million upon our entry into the license and collaboration agreement with the University of Pennsylvania. We will also owe REGENXBIO (i) an annual maintenance fee; (ii) up to $7.6 million in combined development and regulatory milestone fees per licensed product; (iii) mid-single digit to low teens royalty percentages on net sales of licensed products sold by us, our affiliates and sublicensees and (iv) a low twenties percentage of certain sublicense fees we receive from sublicensees for the licensed products and certain fees we receive from the sale or transfer of specified rights related to a licensed product.

Under the agreement, we are obligated to diligently use commercially reasonable efforts to develop, commercialize, market, promote and sell licensed products. We are also obligated to achieve certain development milestones, including submission to the FDA and subsequent effectiveness of an IND application, or acceptance by the European Medicines Agency of an equivalent application, within a specified time period, which we may extend for a specified number of extensions upon the payment of certain fees.

The agreement will continue on a country-by-country and licensed product-by-licensed product basis and expire upon the later of the expiration, lapse, abandonment or invalidation of the last claim of the licensed patent rights to expire, lapse or become abandoned or unenforceable in such country, or ten years after first commercial sale of such licensed product in such country. We may terminate the agreement upon prior written notice. REGENXBIO may terminate the agreement immediately in case of our bankruptcy, or other similar events, if we are late in paying money due under the agreement and do not pay in full within a specified number of days after receiving written notice, or if we or our affiliates commence any action against REGENXBIO or its licensors to
