Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 15, 2017, PTC Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with Marathon Pharmaceuticals, LLC (“Marathon”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to acquire all rights to Emflaza™ (deflazacort) (the “Transaction”). Emflaza is the first treatment approved in the



United States for all Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients five years and older, regardless of their genetic mutation. Under the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company has agreed to pay Marathon total upfront consideration of $140 million upon the closing of the Transaction, comprised of approximately $75 million in cash and approximately $65 million of the Company’s common stock. The number of shares of the Company’s common stock issuable at closing will be based on the volume weighted average price per share of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market for the 15 trading day period ending on the third trading day immediately preceding the closing of the Transaction and will be subject to reduction such that the number of shares issuable will not exceed 19.9% of the issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock immediately prior to the closing date, which is expected to be a maximum of approximately 6.9 million shares, with any shortfall to be made whole with additional cash consideration. The Company will also assume certain liabilities with respect to the assets to be acquired. In addition, Marathon will be entitled to receive contingent payments from the Company based on annual net sales of Emflaza beginning in 2018, up to a specified aggregate maximum amount for such payments, and a single $50 million sales-based milestone, in each case subject to the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement. The Company expects that the contingent payments will, on a blended average basis, range in percentages of net sales between the low to mid-twenties.
The Asset Purchase Agreement includes customary pre-closing covenants, including with respect to Marathon’s conduct of business, capital expenditures and studies and trials relating to the assets to be acquired as well as provisions with respect to the parties’ rights and responsibilities in the event Marathon elects to commercialize the assets to be acquired prior to closing of the Transaction.
Additionally, prior to the closing of the Transaction, Marathon is prohibited from initiating, soliciting, encouraging or otherwise facilitating any inquiry, proposal, offer or discussion or engaging in discussions or negotiating with any party other than the Company with respect to a sale or similar transaction of the assets to be acquired, subject to the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement. The Asset Purchase Agreement also prohibits Marathon from engaging in the business of developing, selling, manufacturing, distributing or marketing any product that is a steroid or anti-inflammatory for the treatment of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and from soliciting or hiring specified persons and employees of the Company, subject to certain exceptions as set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement, for a period of five years following the closing of the Transaction. Under the Asset Purchase Agreement, Marathon has also agreed to a standstill with respect to the Company’s securities, not to dispose of any Company common stock and to vote any of its Company common stock in accordance with the Company’s governing body for a period of six months following closing of the Transaction, subject to certain exceptions as set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement.
The Asset Purchase Agreement includes customary closing conditions, including regulatory approval, and termination provisions as well as indemnification provisions pursuant to which the parties agree to indemnify each other, subject to certain thresholds and caps on liability as set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement. The Asset Purchase Agreement may be terminated by either party if the Transaction has not closed by July 15, 2017, subject to the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement.
The Asset Purchase Agreement also contains customary representations and warranties that the Company and Marathon made to each other as of specific dates. The assertions embodied in those representations and warranties were made solely for purposes of the Asset Purchase Agreement and may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by the Company and Marathon in connection with negotiating its terms. Moreover, the representations and warranties may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality that may be different from what may be viewed as material to stockholders or may have been used for the purpose of allocating risk between the Company and Marathon rather than establishing matters as facts. For the foregoing reasons, no person should rely on such representations and warranties as statements of factual information at the time they were made or otherwise.
The above description of the Asset Purchase Agreement is a summary only and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement, filed as Exhibit 2.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.




Item 3.02. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
The description of the common stock consideration under the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement set forth in Item 1.01 is incorporated herein by reference. In connection with the closing of the Transaction, the Company will issue to Marathon the common stock consideration pursuant to an exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder, based in part on Marathon’s representations to the Company that it is an “accredited investor” as that term is defined under Rule 501(a) under the Securities Act.
Item 7.01.    Regulation FD Disclosure.
On March 16, 2017, the Company issued a press release in which it announced that it entered into the Asset Purchase Agreement. A copy of the press release is attached to this Report as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference into this Item 7.01.
The information set forth in or incorporated by reference into this Item 7.01, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

Item 9.01.    Financial Statements and Exhibits.
(d) Exhibits
See Exhibit Index attached hereto.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward Looking Statements
This Report contains forward-looking statements addressing the Transaction and the other transactions contemplated in the Asset Purchase Agreement and any other statements about future expectations, prospects, estimates and other matters that are dependent upon future events or developments. All statements, other than those of historical fact, contained in this Report are forward-looking statements, including statements related to the Company’s expectations with respect to the closing of the Transaction; the potential financial impact and benefits to the Company of the Transaction, including with respect to a potential launch of Emflaza and the Company’s expectations with respect to contingent payments to Marathon based on annual net sales; the potential advantages of Emflaza; the future expectations, plans and prospects for the Company; the Company's strategy, future operations, future financial position, future revenues or projected costs; and the objectives of management. Other forward-looking statements may be identified by the words "look forward", "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "target," "potential," "will," "would," "could," "should," "continue," and similar expressions. The Company's actual results, performance or achievements could differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements it makes as a result of a variety of risks and uncertainties, including those related to: satisfaction of the conditions to closing the Transaction (including the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals) in the anticipated timeframe or at all; the Company’s ability to realize the anticipated benefits of the Transaction, including the possibility that the expected benefits from the Transaction will not be realized or will not be realized within the expected time period; negative effects of the announcement of the Asset Purchase Agreement on the market price of the Company’s common stock; significant transaction costs; unknown liabilities; the risk of litigation and/or regulatory actions related to the Transaction; other business effects, including the effects of industry, market, economic, political or regulatory conditions; changes in tax and other laws, regulations, rates and policies; the eligible patient base and commercial potential of TranslarnaTM (ataluren) and Emflaza; the sufficiency of the




Company's cash resources and its ability to obtain adequate financing in the future for its foreseeable and unforeseeable operating expenses and capital expenditures; and the factors discussed in the "Risk Factors" section of the Company's most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or Annual Report on Form 10-K as well as any updates to these risk factors filed from time to time in the Company's other filings with the SEC. As with any pharmaceutical under development, there are significant risks in the development, regulatory approval and commercialization of new products. There are no guarantees that any product will receive or maintain regulatory approval in any territory, or prove to be commercially successful, including Translarna or Emflaza. The forward-looking statements contained herein represent the Company's views only as of the date of this Report and the Company does not undertake or plan to update or revise any such forward-looking statements to reflect actual results or changes in plans, prospects, assumptions, estimates or projections, or other circumstances occurring after the date of this Report except as required by law.

ASSET PURCHASE AGREEMENT

THIS ASSET PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this “ Agreement ”) is made and entered into as of March 15, 2017, by and between PTC Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“ Buyer ”), and Marathon Pharmaceuticals, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“ Seller ”). Buyer and Seller may be referred to herein, together, as the “ Parties ” and, individually, as a “ Party .”

RECITALS

WHEREAS, Seller desires to sell, transfer and assign (or cause to be sold, transferred and assigned) to Buyer, and Buyer desires to purchase from Seller the Acquired Assets, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and of the mutual representations, warranties, covenants and agreements herein contained, and for other good and valuable consideration (the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged), the Parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

ARTICLE I
SALE AND PURCHASE OF ASSETS; CLOSING

1.1      Sale and Purchase of Assets; Assumption of Assumed Liabilities .

(a)      Upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereof, at the Closing, Seller shall sell, assign, transfer and deliver (or cause to be sold, assigned, transferred and delivered) to Buyer, and Buyer shall purchase from Seller, all right, title and interest in, to and under the Acquired Assets, free and clear of all Liens (other than Permitted Liens) in exchange for (i) a payment of cash consideration in the aggregate amount of $75,000,000 (as may be increased pursuant to Sec tion 1.1(d), the “ Cash Consideration ”), payable as and to the extent set forth in Section 1.4(b); (ii) the assumption by Buyer of the Assumed Liabilities; (iii) a number of shares of Buyer Common Stock equal to the Stock Consideration, payable as and to the extent set forth in Section 1.4(b) (but subject to Section 1.1(d) below); and (iv) the right to receive contingent payments, if, as and to the extent payable pursuant to Section 1.6 (the “ Contingent Payments ”).

(b)      Upon the terms and subject to the conditions hereof, at the Closing, Buyer shall assume the Assumed Liabilities. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Transaction Document, (i) Buyer shall not assume, and Seller shall remain primarily liable for, and shall pay, perform and discharge when due, the Retained Liabilities and (ii) Buyer shall not acquire any Excluded Assets.

(c)      Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, this Agreement shall not constitute an agreement to assign or transfer any Contract or Permit, or any claim, right or benefit arising thereunder or resulting therefrom, if (i) an attempted assignment or transfer thereof, without the consent of a Third Party thereto or of the issuing Governmental Authority, as the case may be, would constitute a breach thereof and (ii) such consent is not








obtained prior to the Closing (each a “ Deferred Item ”). In such case, (A) such Deferred Item shall be withheld from sale pursuant to this Agreement without any reduction in the amount due pursuant to Sec tion 1.1(a), (B) from and after the Closing, Seller will use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such consent as soon as practicable after the Closing, and (C) until such consent is obtained, Seller shall provide (or cause to be provided) to Buyer the benefits under such Deferred Item, including by paying Buyer’s out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with obtaining alternative arrangements (including subleasing or subcontracting if permitted) to provide to Buyer the economic and operational equivalent of obtaining such consent and assigning or transferring to Buyer such Deferred Item, including enforcement for the benefit of Buyer of all claims or rights arising thereunder.

(d)      If the aggregate number of shares of Buyer Common Stock to be issued pursuant to Section 1.1(a)(iii) would exceed nineteen and nine tenths percent (19.9%) of the issued and outstanding shares of Buyer Common Stock immediately prior to the Closing Date (the “ Maximum Share Number ”), the number of such shares shall be reduced to the minimum extent necessary such that the aggregate number of shares of Buyer Common Stock to be issued pursuant to Section 1.1(a)(iii) does not exceed the Maximum Share Number (such reduction in shares of Buyer Common Stock, the “ Shortfall Amount ”), in which case Buyer shall increase the Cash Consideration by an amount equal to the product of (i) the Shortfall Amount and (ii) the Buyer Closing Trading Price.

1.2      Pre-Closing . No less than three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, Seller shall deliver to Buyer the following:

(a)      a certificate duly executed by the Chief Financial Officer of Seller certifying that Seller has no Liability for any Seller Bank Indebtedness; and

If Seller delivers a Seller Disclosure Schedule Update, Buyer shall then have the right, during the period commencing on the date of receipt of such Seller Disclosure Schedule Update and ending on the date that is ten (10) Business Days thereafter to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.1(d) if the condition precedent set forth in Section 6.1 (a) will not be fulfilled as a result of the matters, events or facts set forth in such Seller Disclosure Schedule Update. As of the Closing, if Buyer has not exercised its right to terminate this Agreement with respect to a Seller Disclosure Schedule Update that gives Buyer the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.1(d), then the Seller Disclosure Schedule will thereupon be deemed to be amended by such Seller Disclosure Schedule Update and the Buyer Indemnified Parties will be deemed to have waived any claim for indemnification pursuant to ARTICLE VIII based on any breach of representation or warranty that would have otherwise existed in the absence of such disclosure solely for the portion of any matter, event or fact disclosed in such Seller Disclosure Schedule Update. If the Seller Disclosure Schedule Update does not give Buyer the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.1(d) and this Section 4.4(a), then the Seller Disclosure Schedule will not be deemed to be amended by such Seller Disclosure Schedule Update and the Buyer Indemnified Parties will not be deemed to have waived any claim for indemnification pursuant to ARTICLE VIII.

(b)      Buyer shall give prompt notice (and, in any event, within two (2) Business Days) (a “ Buyer Notice ”) to Seller of (i) the occurrence or non-occurrence of any event the occurrence or non-occurrence of which would or would be reasonably likely to cause any representation or warranty of Buyer contained herein to be untrue or inaccurate in any material respect at any time at or prior to the Closing, or which would constitute a Buyer Material Adverse Change, (ii) any event which would reasonably be expected to cause any of the conditions in ARTICLE VI not to be fulfilled, and (iii) any material failure of Buyer to comply with or satisfy in a timely manner any covenant, condition or agreement to be complied with or satisfied by Buyer hereunder. In the event that Buyer delivers to Seller a Buyer Notice related to any event arising after the date of this Agreement, such Buyer Notice may be accompanied by a


-28-





supplement to the Buyer Disclosure Schedule specifying such change or changes as are necessary to reflect the event that gave rise to such Buyer Notice (a “ Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update ”). If Buyer delivers a Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update, Seller shall then have the right, during the period commencing on the date of receipt of such Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update and ending on the date that is ten (10) Business Days thereafter to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Sec tion 7.1(e) if the condition precedent set forth in Section 6.2 (a) will not be fulfilled as a result of the matters, events or facts set forth in such Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update. As of the Closing, if Seller has not exercised its right to terminate this Agreement with respect to a Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update that gives Seller the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.1(e) and this Section 4.4(b), then the Buyer Disclosure Schedule will thereupon be deemed to be amended by such Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update and the Seller Indemnified Parties will be deemed to have waived any claim for indemnification pursuant to ARTICLE VIII based on any breach of representation or warranty that would have otherwise existed in the absence of such disclosure solely for the portion of any matter, event or fact disclosed in such Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update. If the Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update does not give Seller the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.1(e), then the Buyer Disclosure Schedule will not be deemed to be amended by such Buyer Disclosure Schedule Update and the Seller Indemnified Parties will not be deemed to have waived any claim for indemnification pursuant to ARTICLE VI II.

5.3
Non-Competition, Non-Solicitation and Confidentiality .

(a)      Prohibited Activities . As further consideration for the purchase and sale of the Acquired Assets and the other transactions contemplated hereby:

(i)      Seller covenants and agrees with Buyer that it shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, until the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Closing Date (the “ Non- Competition Term ”), directly or indirectly, for such Person or on behalf of or in conjunction with any other Person, engage in the Territory as an owner, Representative or otherwise, in any business, or in developing, selling, manufacturing, distributing or marketing, any product that is a steroid or anti-inflammatory for the treatment of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy; provided that this Sec tion 5.3(a) shall not prohibit Seller or any of its Affiliates from (x) owning shares of Buyer Common Stock (subject to Sections 5.12 , 5.13 and 5.14 ), (y) owning less than five percent (5%) of the outstanding common stock of a company, the common stock of which is traded on a national stock exchange, or (z) owning and operating the Excluded Assets.

(ii)      Seller covenants and agrees with Buyer that it shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, until the fifth (5th) anniversary of the Closing Date (the “ Non- Solicitation Term ”), directly or indirectly, for such Person or on behalf of or in conjunction with any other Person, (A) employ or hire away from Buyer any Restricted Person or (B) solicit or communicate with any Restricted Person for the purpose or with the intent of enticing, or in a manner reasonably likely to entice, such Restricted Person away from Buyer; provided that this Sec tion 5.3(a)(ii) shall not at any time prohibit (x) Seller from soliciting or hiring any Specified Restricted Person whose employment or other service providing relationship with Buyer was terminated by Buyer more than six (6) months prior to such time or (y) the placement of

-31-




advertisements in publications of general circulation not directed at any Specified Restricted Person.

Each of the Non-Competition Term and the Non-Solicitation Term shall be automatically extended by the number of days that Seller is found to have been in violation of the provisions of this Sec tion 5.3(a). For purposes of this Section 5.3(a), the term “ Buyer ” means Buyer and any present or future Affiliate of Buyer during the Non-Solicitation Term.

(b)      Confidentiality . Seller recognizes that by reason of (i) its ownership of the Business and (ii) the information provided by or on behalf of Buyer or any of its Affiliates to Seller in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby, Seller has acquired and/or will acquire Confidential Information, the use or disclosure of which could cause the Business, Buyer and/or its Affiliates substantial loss and damages that could not be readily calculated and for which no remedy at law would be adequate. Accordingly, Seller covenants and agrees with Buyer that Seller will not, and will cause its Affiliates not to, at any time, directly or indirectly, use, disclose or publish, any Confidential Information, unless (A) such information becomes generally known to the public through no breach of this Section 5.3(b) by Seller or any of its Affiliates or (B) the disclosing Party is advised in writing by counsel that disclosure is required by Law or the order of any Governmental Authority of competent jurisdiction under color of Law; provided that prior to disclosing any information pursuant to clause (B) above, such Person shall, to the extent legally permissible, give prior written notice thereof to Buyer and provide Buyer with the opportunity to contest such disclosure and shall, at Buyer’s expense, cooperate with efforts to prevent such disclosure.

(c)      Reasonable Restraint . Seller acknowledges, in connection with the prohibited activities restrictions herein that: (i) the covenants in this Sec tion 5.3 impose a reasonable restraint in light of the activities the Business on the date of this Agreement and the current plans of Buyer, Seller and the Business; (ii) it is the intention of the Parties that the entire goodwill of the Business be transferred to Buyer as part of the transactions contemplated hereby;
(iii) that Seller and Buyer explicitly considered the value of the goodwill to be transferred and that such goodwill is valued as a component of the consideration to be paid by Buyer pursuant to the terms hereof; and (iv) that the covenants set forth in this Section 5.3 are a material and substantial part of the transactions contemplated hereby (supported by adequate consideration), and Buyer’s failure to receive the entire goodwill contemplated hereby would have the effect of significantly reducing the value of the Business to Buyer.

(d)      Reformation . If the courts of any one or more jurisdictions hold any of the covenants or agreements contained in this Section 5.3 to be unenforceable by reason of its extending for too long a period of time or over too large a geographical area or by reason of its being too extensive in any other respect, it shall be interpreted to extend only over the longest period of time for which it may be enforceable, and/or over the largest geographical area as to which it may be enforceable and/or to the maximum extent in all other respects as to which it may be enforceable, all to the fullest extent which such courts deems reasonable and the Agreement shall thereby be reformed. If the courts of any one or more of such jurisdictions hold any of such covenants or agreements wholly unenforceable by reason of the breach of their scope or otherwise, it is the intention of the Parties that such determination not bar or in any way affect any Party’s right to relief provided in the courts of any other jurisdiction within the geographical

-32-





scope of such covenants or agreements, with breaches of such covenants or agreements in such other jurisdiction being, for this purpose, severable into diverse and independent covenants.

(e)      Specific Performance . Seller acknowledges that Buyer will be irreparably harmed and that remedies at law would be inadequate for any actual or threatened breach (for the avoidance of doubt, “threatened breach” as used in this paragraph shall mean the anticipatory repudiation by a Party of its obligations under this Sec tion 5.3 ) by Seller of any of the covenants or agreements contained in this Section 5.3 . It is accordingly agreed that, in addition to any other remedies which may be available upon the actual or threatened breach of any such covenants or agreements, Buyer shall have the right to equitable relief (including in the form of injunctions and orders for specific performance (in each case, without the proof of actual damages) to restrain a breach or threatened breach of, or otherwise to obtain specific performance of, Seller’s covenants and agreements contained in this Section 5.3 , in any court having jurisdiction over the Parties and the matter. Seller agrees to waive any requirement for the security or the posting of any bond in connection with any such remedy or relief.

(f)      Independent Covenant . All of the covenants in this Sec tion 5.3 shall be construed as an agreement independent of any other provision in the Transaction Documents, and the existence of any claim or cause of action of Seller against Buyer, whether predicated on this Agreement or otherwise, shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement by Buyer of such covenants. The Parties expressly acknowledge that the terms and conditions of this Section 5.3 are independent of the terms and conditions of any other agreements including any employment agreements entered into in connection with this Agreement. The covenants contained in Section
5.3      shall not be affected by any breach of any other provision hereof by any Party.

5.4      Transaction Confidentiality Agreements . Effective as of the Closing, (a) to the extent any right or interest of Seller under any Transaction Confidentiality Agreement is assignable without the consent of a Third Party, Seller hereby assigns to Buyer all rights and interests under any Transaction Confidentiality Agreement to which Seller is a party, and (b) to the extent any right or interest of Seller under a Transaction Confidentiality Agreement is not assignable without the consent of a Third Party, Seller agrees to enforce its rights under any such Transaction Confidentiality Agreement for the benefit of Buyer and its Affiliates as Buyer directs.

(1) involve criminal liability or any admission of wrongdoing, (2) seek equitable relief or any other non-monetary remedy against the Indemnified Party, (3) involve any Governmental Authority as a party thereto or (4) involve an ad damnum that, taken together with the estimated costs of defense thereof, the claimed amount with respect to any unresolved claims for indemnification then pending (and amounts for claims previously satisfied by way of set off in accordance with Section 8.6), is greater than the Cap, then except as hereinafter provided, such Indemnifying Party shall have the right to defend against such Third Party Claim by appropriate proceedings with legal counsel reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party, which proceedings shall be diligently prosecuted by such Party to a final conclusion; provided that, unless the Indemnified Party otherwise agrees in writing, the Indemnifying Party may not settle any matter (in whole or in part) unless such settlement (I) includes a complete and unconditional release of the Indemnified Party and its Affiliates in respect of the Third Party Claim, (II) involves no admission of wrongdoing by the Indemnified Party or its Affiliates and (III) excludes any injunctive or non-monetary relief applicable to the Indemnified Party or its Affiliates.

Attention: [ ] PTC Therapeutics, Inc. Ladies and Gentlemen:
We are counsel for PTC Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) and have been requested to furnish to you an opinion with respect to certain securities sold by Marathon Pharmaceuticals, LLC (the “Seller”).

As a basis for this opinion, we have received and reviewed copies of the following documents:

1.
The Seller's Notice on Form 144, which, we have been advised, was transmitted for filing by the Seller with the Securities and Exchange Commission and any required national securities exchange on [      ], 20[_].

2.
A letter from the Seller to the Company dated [      ], 20[_] providing information related to the securities sold by the Seller and representing, among other things, that a period of at least six months (as determined in accordance with paragraph (d) of Rule 144) has elapsed since the date on which the securities were most recently acquired from the Company or from an affiliate of the Company and, if acquired by purchase, since the date on which payment of the full purchase price was made[, and that the Seller is not, and has not been within the past three months, an “affiliate” of the Company, as that term is defined in paragraph (a)(1) of Rule 144, and sold the securities pursuant to paragraph (b)(1) of Rule 144].

3.
A letter from [      ] (the “Broker”) dated [      ], 20[_] certifying that the sale was made in compliance with the “manner of sale” requirements of paragraph (f) of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”).

We have been notified that the Seller sold [          ] shares of the Common Stock of the Company (the “Shares”) pursuant to Rule 144 on [      ] and that the Seller has delivered to the Broker certificate[s] number[ed] [      ] representing [          ] shares of the Common Stock of the Company registered in the name of the Seller (the “Certificate”). We have assumed, without investigation, that the Shares were not initially issued by a “shell company,” as described in







paragraphs (i)(1)(i) and (ii) of Rule 144. We also have been advised that the Company is in compliance with the current public information requirements of paragraph (c) of Rule 144.

On the basis of the foregoing and assuming the accuracy of the representations of the Seller, the Broker and the Company, it is our opinion that the sale of the Shares by the Seller complied with Rule 144 and that the Shares may be transferred without compliance with the registration requirements of the Act.

Any restrictive legend or stop order relating to the Certificate may be removed, and a new, unlegended certificate for the Shares may be issued. The stop order in effect with respect to the balance of the shares, if any, covered by the Certificate and not sold in this transaction under Rule 144 should remain in effect, and any new certificate representing such shares should bear the same restrictive legend as the Certificate.

Any questions concerning the foregoing opinion should be communicated to [      ] of this firm.

Very truly yours,

Re:    PTC Therapeutics, Inc.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We are counsel for PTC Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) and have been requested to furnish to you an opinion with respect to certain “restricted securities” owned by Marathon Pharmaceuticals, LLC (the “LLC”).

We understand that [      ] shares of the Common Stock of the Company owned by the LLC (the “Shares”) and represented by certificate[s] number[ed] [      ] registered in the name of the LLC (the “Certificate”) are to be distributed pro rata and without consideration therefor to the members of the LLC, which we assume to be “closely held for purposes of the federal securities laws.

As a basis for this opinion, we have received and reviewed a letter dated [      ] from the LLC to the Company providing certain information with respect to the LLC, its members, the Shares and the proposed distribution (the “Letter”). We understand that a copy of the Letter has been delivered to you. We have also reviewed such additional documents and information as in our judgment are necessary or appropriate to enable us to render the opinion expressed below. We have assumed, without investigation, that the Shares were not initially issued by a “shell company,” as described in paragraphs (i)(1)(i) and (ii) of Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”).

On the basis of the foregoing and assuming the accuracy of the representations of the LLC, it is our opinion that the Shares may be distributed to the members of the LLC in accordance with the Letter without compliance with the registration requirements of the Act.

[Any restrictive legend or stop order relating to the Certificate may be removed, and new, unlegended certificates may be issued to the members of the LLC in accordance with the instructions set forth in the Letter.]

[or]

[We call to your attention that all certificates issued to the members of the LLC in accordance with the instructions set forth in the Letter should bear the restrictive legend and be subject to the stop order currently in effect with respect to the Certificate.]
