Medivir AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: MVIR) today announces that it has come to agreement with Janssen to outlicense the commercial rights to the Nordics for simeprevir and future simeprevir containing products. In exchange Medivir will receive royalties on sales of all simeprevir containing products in the Nordics, as it already does in the rest of the world, and additional performance based milestones totaling up to approximately 6 MEUR based on certain sales targets for the Nordics of a combination product containing simeprevir.
