This transaction is immediately and highly accretive, and we are now focused on seamless integration and delivering identified synergies of at least $75 million within twelve months.” Strategic Rationale Strategically aligned with Collegium’s mission to build a leading, diversified specialty pharmaceutical company committed to improving the lives of people living with serious medical conditions Diversifies and expands Collegium’s revenues by adding BELBUCA® as a second and highly complementary growth driver to Collegium’s highly differentiated pain portfolio, in addition to a contributor with SYMPROIC®, and a new product launch opportunity with ELYXYB™ Further strengthens Collegium’s financial position through increased revenue scale, immediate and significant earnings accretion, and accelerated cash flow generation, driven by identified annual run rate synergies of at least $75 million expected to be achieved within twelve months post-closing ELYXYB™ provides entry into the neurology market, a strategic market adjacency previously identified by Collegium Additional Transaction Details The acquisition was structured as a cash tender offer to acquire all the outstanding shares of BDSI at the price of $5.60 per share. As of the expiration of the tender offer at one minute following 11:59 p.m., New York time, on March 18, 2022, the depositary for the tender offer advised Collegium and BDSI that stockholders holding approximately 72.44% of the outstanding shares of common stock of BDSI had tendered their shares, satisfying the minimum condition to consummate the tender offer. All of the conditions to the offer have been satisfied and on March 21, 2022, Collegium and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Bristol Acquisition Company, Inc. (“Purchaser”), accepted for payment and will promptly pay for all shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the tender offer. On March 22, 2022, Collegium completed its acquisition of BDSI through the merger of Purchaser with and into BDSI without a vote of BDSI’s stockholders pursuant to Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law (“DGCL”). As a result of the merger, BDSI is now wholly owned by Collegium. In connection with the merger, all BDSI shares not validly tendered into the tender offer (other than shares owned by BDSI, Collegium or Purchaser or any direct or indirect wholly owned subsidiary of BDSI, Collegium or Purchaser, which were cancelled and retired and ceased to exist, and no consideration delivered in exchange therefor) have been cancelled and (other than any shares held by holders who are entitled to appraisal rights under Section 262 of the DGCL and who had properly exercised and perfected their respective demands for appraisal of such shares in the time and manner provided in Section 262 of the DGCL and, as of the effective time of the merger, had neither effectively withdrawn nor lost their rights to such appraisal and payment under the DGCL) converted into the right to receive the same $5.60 per share, net to the holder thereof, in cash, without interest, subject to any applicable withholding taxes, as will be paid for all shares that were validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) in the tender offer. BDSI common stock will cease to be traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market. About Collegium Pharmaceutical, Inc.

Solidus Biosciences

Solidus Biosciences is a company that received a STTR Phase II grant for a project entitled: Development of a Lead Optimization Chip for Drug Discovery. Their award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and their project will address further development and commercialization of a multi-enzyme lead optimization chip (Multizyme Chip) for high-throughput generation of lead compound analogs coupled with cell-based screening for the rapid identification of biologically active derivatives. Such a capability directly impacts a key bottleneck in drug discovery; namely, the efficient optimization of lead compounds to develop drugs with optimal pharmacological properties. Solidus Biosciences, Inc. proposes to combine six biocatalysis with pharmacological screening to provide rapid identification of biologically active compounds against cell-specific targets, which is a new paradigm for lead optimization. Moreover, the Multizyme Chip platform will be well-suited for lead optimization in related industries, including agrochemicals, cosmetics, and cosmeceuticals. The Solidus technology will thus improve the competitiveness and efficiency of the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and chemical industries, and will serve as a rich source of new and improved commercial products. The broader impacts of this research are the advances that Solidus Biosciences will achieve toward generating better and safer drugs, reducing the cost to develop these drugs, and increasing the overall efficiency of the pharmaceutical industry. Solidus will generate Multizyme Chips for purchase by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to facilitate their lead optimization programs, particularly those involving natural product-derived and complex synthetic small molecule leads. Cryopreservation techniques developed in Phase II will enable the sale of chips and chip-handling devices produced during Phase I, and will allow seamless penetration of the Solidus technology platform into the company's target markets. Solidus Biosciences is a company that received a STTR Phase I grant for a project entitled: Development of a Lead Optimization Chip for Drug Discovery. Their research project aims to develop a new method for generating lead compounds by using enzymatic modification of compound sets. Availability of new methodology to generate biologically active compounds from existing molecules may enhance the success of the drug discovery process and may lead to the discovery of new and useful therapeutics. Solidus Biosciences is a company that received a STTR Phase I grant for a project entitled: High-Throughput RNAi Screening of Mammalian Cells. Their research project aims to develop a system for the rapid screening of siRNAs that can inhibit genes involved in cellular responses such as hyperosmotic stress that can affect pathways of high commercial importance, including protein production. Use of hyperosmotic stress as a proof of concept system will demonstrate the feasibility of high-throughput RNAi screening and will at the same time yield results that can be used to improve monoclonal antibody production in commercial and laboratory settings Production of biopharmaceuticals such as antibodies is exquisitely responsive to the culture conditions under which the cells are grown and thus can be improved through optimizing such settings, which in turn, would affect the genes involved in the specific synthetic pathways of interest. Development of a rapid methodology to identify inhibitory RNA molecules that can inhibit genes that adversely affect yield would be of significant importance to pharmaceutical companies that produce protein therapeutics and may result in a lowering of the const of these therapeutic entities.
