Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Hikma Manufacturing Agreement

OptiNose, Inc. (“Optinose”) and Hikma Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. (“Hikma”) are parties to a Manufacturing and Supply Agreement, dated December 11, 2020 (the “Manufacturing Agreement”) pursuant to which, following FDA approval of Hikma as an alternative manufacturing site (which occurred on March 9, 2024), Hikma will manufacture and supply finished XHANCE units. Optinose will provide rolling forecasts to Hikma for orders of XHANCE units, of which a certain portion of such forecasts are binding. Optinose is required to have purchased a specified minimum number of XHANCE units over an annual period or it will be required to pay a specified fee to Hikma based on the number of XHANCE units not purchased. The Manufacturing Agreement also contains representations, warranties, indemnification and other obligations of Optinose and Hikma.

The term of the Manufacturing Agreement expires on December 31, 2026 subject to earlier termination or extension in accordance with the terms of the agreement. Either Optinose or Hikma may terminate the Manufacturing Agreement prior to that date by mutual consent or for uncured material breach by or insolvency of the other party. Optinose may also terminate the Manufacturing Agreement if, among other things, any intellectual property of any third party is reasonably alleged by a third party to be infringed, misappropriated or otherwise violated by the manufacture, import, use, sale or distribution of XHANCE or if any regulatory authority requires us to cease production of the sale of XHANCE. Hikma may also terminate the Manufacturing Agreement if, among other things, Hikma is named in a third party claim which alleges Hikma’s performance of its obligations under the agreement infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate the intellectual property of any third party.
