As of the filing of this report, the Company has issued $130.0 million of senior secured notes (the “Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes”) under the Note Purchase Agreement, and there are no outstanding commitments for the purchasers to purchase any additional senior secured notes under the Note Purchase Agreement.

Also, the A&R Note Purchase Agreement will provide for:

an extension of the maturity date of the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes from September 12, 2024 to June 30, 2027 (the “New Maturity Date”);

an extension of the interest-only period from September 2023 to September 2025, after which principal repayments would commence starting on September 30, 2025 and would be made in eight equal quarterly installments of principal and interest through the New Maturity Date;

an amended interest rate through the New Maturity Date equal to the 3-month Secured Overnight Financing Rate (subject to a 2.50% floor), determined as of the date that is two business days prior to the commencement of each quarter, plus 8.50% per annum, which interest rate shall be increased by an additional 3.00% per annum upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any event of default;

a modification of the “make-whole” premium payment due in connection with any principal prepayments



(whether mandatory or voluntary) made prior to the three-year anniversary of the date of the A&R Note Purchase Agreement. On any such prepayment date, the Company will be required to pay a make-whole premium in the amount of (i) for any prepayment date occurring up until and including the 18-month anniversary of the date of the A&R Note Purchase Agreement, the foregone interest from such prepayment date through the 18-month anniversary of such prepayment date; and (ii) for any prepayment after the 18-month anniversary of the date of the A&R Note Purchase Agreement, the foregone interest from such prepayment date through the 3-year anniversary of the date of the A&R Note Purchase Agreement; provided, however, that in no event shall the amount of all make-whole premium payments exceed $24.0 million in the aggregate;

certain modifications to the affirmative and negative covenants and events of default, including, without limitation, (i) the requirement for the Company to deliver quarterly and annual financial statements that, commencing with the Company's financial statements for the year period ending December 31, 2023, are not subject to a “going concern” qualification and (ii) the removal of certain exceptions to the negative covenants which previously permitted the Company to enter into certain transactions without the consent of the holders of the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes, including permitted acquisitions, swap contracts, convertible bonds and revolving credit facilities;

certain modifications to the Company’s obligations to reimburse the holders of the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes for certain expenses and to indemnify them for certain liabilities as well as the procedures relating thereto;

expansion of the rights of the holders of the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes to assign, transfer and grant participation interests in the notes; and

certain other modifications as set forth in the A&R Note Purchase Agreement.

As an inducement for the holders of the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes to enter into the A&R Note Purchase Agreement, the Company is required to pay the holders of the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes an amendment fee of $3.9 million (representing 3% of the outstanding principal balance of such notes) due on the New Maturity Date or the earlier repayment of the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes, which amendment fee shall be (i) reduced to $1.3 million in the event that the Company repays the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes in full prior to the one-year anniversary of the date of the A&R Note Purchase Agreement and (ii) reduced to $2.6 million in the event that the Company repays the Pharmakon Senior Secured Notes in full on or after the one-year anniversary of the date of the A&R Note Purchase Agreement and prior to second anniversary of the date of the A&R Note Purchase Agreement. Additionally, the $1.3 million fee payable under the Fourth Amendment to the Note Purchase Agreement that the Company entered into on November 9, 2022 will be credited against the amendment fee payable in connection with the A&R Note Purchase Agreement.

For more information about the Note Purchase Agreement, please see the Company’s current reports on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the SEC on September 12, 2019, February 18, 2020, August 18, 2020 and February 25, 2021, November 16, 2021, as well as the information contained in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2022, filed with the SEC on November 10, 2022.

Each Guarantor agrees that such Guarantor shall have no right of subrogation, indemnity, reimbursement or contribution against the Issuer or any other Guarantor for amounts paid under this Article IV until such time as the Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim has been asserted) have been paid in full and all Delayed Draw Note Commitments have expired or been terminated.

With respect to its obligations hereunder, each Guarantor hereby expressly waives diligence, presentment, demand of payment, protest and all notices whatsoever, and any requirement that the Collateral Agent or any Purchaser exhaust any right, power or remedy or proceed against any Person under any of the Note Documents, or any other agreement or instrument referred to in the Note Documents, or against any other Person under any other guarantee of, or security for, any of the Obligations.

The Guarantors agree that, to the fullest extent permitted by law, as between the Guarantors, on the one hand, and the Collateral Agent and the Purchasers, on the other hand, the Obligations may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided in Section 9.02 (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable in the circumstances provided in said Section 9.02) for purposes of Section 4.01 notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such declaration (or preventing the Obligations from becoming automatically due and payable) as against any other Person and that, in the event of such declaration (or the Obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), the Obligations (whether or not due and payable by any other Person) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Guarantors for purposes of Section 4.01.
