Knight Therapeutics Inc. to Begin Trading on March 3, 2014

MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- The Common Shares of Knight Therapeutics Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GUD) are now listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker symbol GUD and are expected to begin trading on March 3, 2014 at opening. Knight Therapeutics Inc. ("Knight") is owned by the former shareholders of Paladin Labs Inc. ("Paladin") pursuant to a spin-off transaction that was effected today, along with the acquisition of Paladin by Endo Health Solutions Inc. (NASDAQ:ENDP), a leading U.S.-based specialty pharmaceutical company.

Jonathan Ross Goodman, the co-founder and former CEO of Paladin since inception is Knight's CEO. Knight's board of directors is composed of Mr. Goodman and 4 other independent directors 3 of whom are former Paladin Board members.

Pursuant to the spin-off transaction, Knight has 3 main assets: (1) a royalty stream from sales of Impavido® outside of the United States. Impavido is approved for sale in 14 countries for the treatment of Leishmaniasis and has been licensed by Knight to Paladin. Applying this royalty stream to Impavido sales in 2012, $463,990 in royalties would have been generated by Knight. (2) A U.S. FDA submission for Impavido, which, if approved, would result in the issuance to Knight of a Priority Review Voucher, discussed further below and (3) $1 million in cash.

"I led Paladin from birth 18 years ago to sale to Endo today." said Mr. Goodman. "During this time," he continued "Paladin experienced 18 consecutive years of record revenues. This resulted in Paladin's share price increasing over 100 times from $1.50 per share to $150. Knight won't rest until it is at least as successful."

Priority Review Voucher

Developed by the U.S. FDA in 2007, a Priority Review Voucher ("PRV") is an incentive for companies to invest in new drugs and vaccines for neglected tropical diseases. A Priority Review means that the time it takes the FDA to review a new drug application is reduced. The PRV is transferable and can be sold and entitles the bearer to a priority review for any product. To date, only 3 companies have received a PRV and none have been sold.
