The Reporting Person is an existing stockholder of the Issuer and the counterparty to the Issuer’s license agreements for both Rolontis® (eflapegrastim) and Poziotinib. The prior dealings between the Reporting Person and the Issuer have previously been reported by the Issuer in its filings with the SEC. Other than with respect to the prior settlement in shares of Common Stock of a milestone payment described in Item 3, these license agreements do not relate to securities of the Issuer within the meaning of Item 6 of Schedule 13D.

The Reporting Person intends to review its investment in the Issuer on an ongoing basis, and currently has no intent to sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of Common Stock reported herein in the foreseeable future.

 

Subject to applicable legal requirements, the Reporting Person may purchase additional shares of Common Stock or other securities of the Issuer from time to time in open market or private transactions, depending on its evaluation of the Issuer’s business, prospects and financial condition, the market for the Issuer’s securities, other developments concerning the Issuer, the reaction of the Issuer to the Reporting Person’s ownership of the Issuer’s securities, other opportunities available to the Reporting Person, and general economic, money market and stock market conditions. The Reporting Person reserves the right to increase or decrease its holdings on such terms and at such times as they may decide.

 

Additionally, pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Reporting Person will appoint one director to the board of directors of the Issuer (the “Issuer Board”) and one observer to attend all meetings of the Issuer Board for so long as it beneficially owns at least five percent of the total issued and outstanding shares of the Common Stock (as adjusted for any stock splits, stock dividends, recapitalizations or similar transaction).

 

Except as set forth herein or such as would occur upon or in connection with completion of, or following, any of the actions discussed herein, the Reporting Person, and to the Reporting Person’s knowledge, the Covered Persons do not have any present plan or proposal (including in respect of the license agreements or Securities Purchase Agreement described above) which would relate to or result in any of the matters set forth in subparagraphs (a) through (j) of Item 4 of Schedule 13D.
