Kamada Awarded $22 Million Extension of Canadian Supply Tender

• Awarded Extension to Existing Supply Tender which relates to Portfolio of Four Specialty IgG Products Acquired in 2021.
• Supply Extension Secures Ongoing Sales of Approximately $7.5 Million Per Year for 2023-2025, with an Option to Extend for up to Additional Two Years.

Rehovot, Israel, and Hoboken, NJ, October 19, 2022 – Kamada Ltd. (NASDAQ & TASE: KMDA), a vertically integrated global biopharmaceutical company, focused on specialty plasma-derived therapeutics, announced today that the Company was awarded an extension of an existing tender from the Canadian Blood Services (CBS) for the supply of four IgG products, CYTOGAM®, HEPAGAM®, VARIZIG® and WINRHO® SDF, for an additional three years for an approximate total value of $22 million. This award secures the ongoing sales of those products in the Canadian market. The four commercial products, approved by Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), were acquired by Kamada in November 2021. CBS manages the Canadian supply of blood products for all Canadian provinces and territories, excluding Quebec. The extension with CBS is for a three-year period, commencing on April 1, 2023, with an option to extend for up to two additional years.

“This award, together with KAMRAB® as the primary anti-Rabies IgG product used in Canada, validates our position as the leading specialty IgG company in that important geography,” said Amir London, Kamada’s Chief Executive Officer. “This achievement represents the second significant tender we have recently secured, following the new $11.4 million supply agreement won for VARIZIG from an international organization operating principally in Latin America. We remain confident that significant commercial potential exists for our IgG portfolio in international markets and intend to continue pursuing additional contracts in key strategic territories.”
Commercial manufacturing of CYTOGAM at Kamada’s Israeli manufacturing plant is expected to be initiated during 2023, following anticipated FDA and Health Canada approvals of the ongoing tech transfer process. HEPAGAM, VARIZIG and WINRHO SDF are manufactured by Emergent BioSolutions (NYSE: EBS) at its facility in Winnipeg, MB, Canada, under a contract development and manufacturing service agreement.
