MannKind Agrees with Pfizer on the Purchase of Frankfurt Insulin Manufacturing Plant
Date:3/9/2009

VALENCIA, Calif., March 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MannKind Corporation (Nasdaq: MNKD) today announced that it has entered into agreements with Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) to purchase Pfizer's insulin facility at Industriepark Hoechst, Frankfurt am Main, Germany and assets related to the production of bulk insulin, including the relevant real property rights, the production equipment, a quantity of bulk insulin and a license to manufacture bulk insulin for use in pulmonary delivery. The aggregate purchase price is $33 million, subject to certain adjustments. At MannKind's option, up to $30 million worth of the company's common stock may be issued to Pfizer at closing and applied toward the full purchase price. The transfer of certain real property rights pursuant to this transaction will require the consent of third parties.

Upon the closing of this transaction, MannKind intends to retain more than half of the current workforce, subject to consultation with the works council and employee co-determination rights, and plans to operate the facility at a production level commensurate with the company's present needs for recombinant human insulin.

In the event some or all of the third-party consents are not obtained, only the bulk insulin, the license to manufacture bulk insulin for use in pulmonary delivery and, potentially, certain removable equipment will be transferred to MannKind at closing.
