The Plan and Disclosure Statement are subject to approval by the Bankruptcy Court.

On September 25, 2019, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Pharmbio Korea, Inc., a company organized under the laws of the Republic of Korea (“Buyer”), to which the Company agreed to sell, transfer and assign to Buyer, to Section 363, specified intellectual property, including patents and rights to the Assigned Marks (as such term is defined in the Purchase Agreement), records and certain other assets related to all strengths, doses and formulations in the Republic of Korea, Japan, China, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste, and Vietnam (the “Territory”) of the Company’s Subsys® (fentanyl sublingual spray) product (the “Subsys product”), in consideration for a purchase price of $1,200,000 in cash that is payable at the closing of the transaction and the assumption by Buyer of certain specified liabilities.  The Purchase Agreement is subject to approval by the Bankruptcy Court and provides for customary closing conditions, including entry and effectiveness of the sale order of the Bankruptcy Court authorizing and approving the transaction, and Buyer’s reporting to and receipt of an acceptance from the Bank of Korea under the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act of Korea if required to consummate the transaction. The Purchase Agreement also provides for customary termination rights.

Cautionary Statements Regarding Trading in the Company’s Securities

The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s securities during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s securities may bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s securities in the Chapter 11 Cases. It is unlikely that holders of the Company’s common stock will receive any recovery on account of such securities.

Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This Form 8-K includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” “intend” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words.  All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this filing that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects, believes, targets or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The Company’s actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain risks and other factors, which could include the following: the failure to obtain Bankruptcy Court approval of the Purchase Agreement or, if the Purchase Agreement is approved by the Bankruptcy Court, to consummate the transactions contemplated thereby, failure to obtain any required regulatory approvals for the Purchase Agreement, the failure to consummate the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of September 1, 2019, by and between the Company and BTcP Pharma, LLC, the failure to consummate the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of August 6, 2019, by and between the Company and Chilion Group Holdings US, Inc., risks and uncertainties relating to the Chapter 11 Cases, including but not limited to, the terms of and potential transactions contemplated by the Plan and Disclosure Statement, the Company’s ability to obtain Bankruptcy Court approval with respect to motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, the effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the Company and on the interests of various constituents, Bankruptcy Court rulings in the Chapter 11 Cases and the outcome of the Chapter 11 Cases in general, the length of

time the Company will operate under the Chapter 11 Cases, risks associated with third-party motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, the potential adverse effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the Company’s liquidity or results of operations and increased legal and other professional costs necessary to execute the Company’s reorganization, the effects of disruption from the Chapter 11 Cases making it more difficult to maintain business and operational relationships, to retain key executives and to maintain various licenses and approvals necessary for the Company to conduct its business, uncertainty associated with the Company’s ability to complete the sale of its assets as contemplated by the Bankruptcy Petitions, trading price and volatility of the Company’s common stock as well as other risk factors set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in addition to those factors, risks and uncertainties described in more detail in the Company’s risk factors set forth in Exhibit 99.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the SEC on August 8, 2019. The Company therefore cautions readers against relying on these forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on the Company’s behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the foregoing cautionary statements. All such statements speak only as of the date made, and, except as required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
