$AMRN API Suppliers Equateq, based in Scotland, and Chemport, based in South Korea, are companies with substantial expertise in manufacturing polyunsaturated fatty acids for use in both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products. Prior to entering into agreements with these companies, Amarin conducted an extensive worldwide evaluation of companies with expertise in manufacturing fatty acid-based products. Based on this evaluation, the Company concluded that the majority of the potential suppliers lacked the technical skills and product quality infrastructure needed to consistently produce icosapent ethyl for AMR101 that is greater than 96% pure eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).
