Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On June 1, 2015, Array BioPharma entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Accuratus Lab Services, Inc. (“Accuratus”), pursuant to which Accuratus acquired certain assets and assumed certain liabilities relating to Array’s chemistry, manufacturing and controls (“CMC”) business in a transaction that closed on June 1, 2015. The sale of the CMC business provides this world-class team the opportunity to grow and achieve continued success, while continuing to provide expert support to Array’s drug discovery and development programs.


The transaction included the transfer of equipment, inventory and third party contracts of Array relating to its CMC business as well as Array’s facilities lease in Longmont, Colorado and the retention of approximately 33 Array CMC employees by Accuratus following the closing. Accuratus paid Array a cash purchase price at closing for the CMC assets, and Array is entitled to receive additional consideration for the CMC assets contingent upon achievement of revenue targets for the CMC business during the first and second year following the closing.


Each party has also agreed to indemnify and hold the other party and its affiliates harmless from and against breaches of representations and warranties or covenants under the Purchase Agreement and related agreements, and certain other liabilities identified in the Purchase Agreement, in each case subject to certain minimums and caps. Each party has also agreed to not engage in certain activities in competition with the other party for a period following closing.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.


Date: June 2, 2015
