Item 8.01 Other Information.

 

As previously reported, on July 27, 2016, the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts dismissed the suit brought by Amphastar Pharmaceuticals Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary International Medication Systems Ltd. (collectively, “Amphastar”) against Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) and Sandoz Inc. alleging that, in connection with filing the September 2011 patent infringement suit against Amphastar and Actavis Inc., the Company and Sandoz sought to prevent Amphastar from selling generic Enoxaparin Sodium Injection and thereby exclude competition for generic Enoxaparin Sodium Injection in violation of federal and California anti-trust laws and California unfair business laws.  Also as previously reported, on August 25, 2016, Amphastar filed a notice of appeal from the dismissal with the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.  On March 6, 2017, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit reversed the District Court’s dismissal and remanded the suit to the District Court for further proceedings.
