Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 6, 2017, XOMA Corporation (the Company or XOMA), through its wholly-owned subsidiary, XOMA (US) LLC, entered into a license agreement (License Agreement) with Rezolute, Inc., formerly known as AntriaBio, Inc. (Rezolute), pursuant to which the Company granted an exclusive global license to Rezolute to develop and commercialize XOMA 358 (formerly X358, now RZ358) for all indications. The Company and Rezolute concurrently entered into a common stock purchase agreement (the Purchase Agreement and, together with the License Agreement, the Transaction Documents) pursuant to which Rezolute would issue equity securities to XOMA in connection with certain financing milestones. On March 30, 2018, the Company and Rezolute amended the Transaction Documents to add terms specifying the financial responsibility for certain tasks related to the transfer of technology under the License Agreement and to adjust the number of shares issuable to XOMA under the Purchase Agreement.
On January 7, 2019, the parties further amended the Transaction Documents. The License Agreement was amended to eliminate the requirement that equity securities be issued to XOMA upon the closing of the Qualified Financing (as defined in the License Agreement) and to replace it with a requirement that Rezolute: (1) make five cash payments to XOMA totaling $8,500,000 following the closing of a Qualified Financing on or before specified staggered future dates (the Future Cash Payments); and (2) provide for early payment of the Future Cash Payments (only until the above referenced $8.5 million is reached) by making cash payments to XOMA equal to 15% of the net proceeds of each future financing following the closing of the Qualified Financing, with such payments to be credited against any remaining unpaid Future Cash Payments in reverse order of their future payment date. In accordance with the terms of the License Agreement, XOMA will receive $5,476,000 in cash upon the closing of the Qualified Financing which is additional to the amounts referenced directly above.
In addition, the License Agreement amendment revised the amount Rezolute is required to expend on development of RZ358 and related licensed products and revised provisions with respect to Rezolutes diligence efforts in conducting clinical studies. Finally, the amendment to the License Agreement eliminated XOMAs right to appoint a member of Rezolutes board of directors.
The Purchase Agreement was amended to remove certain provisions related to the issuance of equity to XOMA in accordance with the new provisions regarding the Future Cash Payments in the License Agreement. The Company anticipates filing the amendments to the License Agreement and Purchase Agreement with its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ending December 31, 2018.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
