Deal Structure: Gilead and Japan Tobacco
In July 2003, Gilead announced that the company has entered into a licensing agreement with Japan Tobacco (JT) under which JT will commercialize products in Gilead's HIV portfolio in Japan. The agreement includes Viread (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate), Emtriva (emtricitabine) and a future co-formulation of the two products. Under the terms of the agreement, Gilead will receive an up-front fee and is entitled to receive additional cash payments upon achievement of certain milestones. JT also will make payments to Gilead based on product sales. JT will submit applications for Viread and Emtriva to Japanese regulatory authorities in the near future.

Elvitegravir was discovered by Japan Tobacco and licensed to Gilead in March 2005. The license granted Gilead exclusive rights to develop and commercialize Elvitegravir in all countries of the world, excluding Japan where Japan Tobacco will retain rights.
