BARCELONA, Spain and COPENHAGEN, Denmark, February 17, 2021 -- Almirall S.A. (BME: ALM), a global biopharmaceutical 
company and MC2 Therapeutics, a commercial stage pharmaceutical company developing a new standard within topical 
therapies for autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions, announced today an agreement under which MC2 Therapeutics 
has granted Almirall exclusive European rights to commercialize Wynzora(R) Cream for treatment of plaque psoriasis. In 
exchange, MC2 Therapeutics is eligible to receive upfront to launch payments of EUR 15 million in addition to 
significant sales milestone payments and double-digit royalties on the European sales of Wynzora(R) Cream. Almirall and 
MC2 Therapeutics partner to make Wynzora(R) Cream a leading topical product for treatment of plaque psoriasis in Europe 
- a market, which currently is more than 25 million units in sales volume annually (2). The market represents a 
significant opportunity for Wynzora(R) Cream as the calcipotriene and betamethasone dipropionate segment accounts for 
approximately 35% of share of volume and annual sales of more than USD300 million (2). 
Wynzora(R) Cream (50 µg/g calcipotriol and 0.5 mg/g betamethasone as dipropionate) received US FDA approval on 20th 
July 2020. Wynzora(R) Cream is currently under review in Europe supported by two Phase 3 trials (1), including an EU 
head-to-head trial against active comparator Dovobet/Daivobet(R) Gel. The Physician Global Assessment (PGA) treatment 
success defined as a minimum two-point decrease in the PGA score to clear or almost clear disease at Week 8 was 51% for 
Wynzora(R) Cream vs. 6% for vehicle (p<0.0001). The treatment satisfaction score using the Psoriasis Treatment 
Convenience Scale (PTCS) was superior compared to Dovobet/Daivobet(R) Gel. Using MC2 Therapeutics' PAD(TM) Technology, 
Wynzora(R) Cream was uniquely designed to provide patients a new treatment option in their daily routines by combining 
the three essentials of a topical therapy in one single product namely high efficacy, a favorable safety profile and 
convenience of use. 
Mike Mcclellan, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) said: "We are thrilled with 
this agreement with MC2 Therapeutics. Wynzora(R) Cream has demonstrated significant improvements in the skin clearance 
of psoriasis patients. It is the perfect addition to our growing psoriasis portfolio, which includes multiple treatment 
options, covering the whole spectrum of the disease. We are delighted that soon we will be able to offer this novel 
topical treatment to European dermatologists and their patients." 
Jesper J. Lange, CEO of MC2 Therapeutics, commented: "We are excited to partner with Almirall, an established company 
with deep expertise in dermatology and psoriasis and with the focus to improve patients' needs. Bringing together 
Almirall's excellence in commercial operations and MC2 Therapeutics' commitment to ensure a global roll-out of Wynzora 
(R) Cream we will, upon approval, ensure a strong launch of Wynzora(R) Cream for the benefit of the many patients 
living with plaque psoriasis and for the healthcare practitioners who provide care. We believe that the unique 
combination of compelling clinical efficacy, a favorable safety profile and treatment convenience are key components to 
treatment adherence and overall better patient satisfaction in topical treatment of plaque psoriasis in a real-world 
setting." 
About Plaque Psoriasis 
Psoriasis is a common, non-contagious, chronic skin disease, with no clear cause or cure. The negative impact of plaque 
psoriasis on people's lives can be immense as it affects the appearance of the skin with red, scaly plaques. Psoriasis 
affects people of all ages, and in all countries. The reported prevalence of psoriasis in Europe varies from 0.6% to 
6.5% with an average of approximately 3% of the population (3,4), making psoriasis a serious global problem with more 
than 100 million individuals affected worldwide (5). The flares of psoriasis can be unpredictable and significant 
comorbidities are common, including arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease 
and depression (4).
