Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Completion of Acquisition o


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 26, 2013, Apricus Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Apricus Biosciences, Inc. (collectively, the "Company"), entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") whereby the Company agreed to sell to Biocodex, Inc. (the "Buyer") all of the Company's rights and certain related information, property and inventory related to Totect® (the "Assets") in exchange for $1,500,000 in cash at the closing date plus the right to receive double-digit, tiered, decreasing royalties based on the Buyer's net sales over the next three years (the "Transaction"). The Transaction closed simultaneously with signing the Asset Purchase Agreement. Totect® (dexrazoxane HCl) is a marketed, injectable treatment for anthracycline extravasation.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company agreed to indemnify the Buyer against certain claims, including those related to breaches by the Company of any "Material Contract" (as defined in the Agreement) and any activities of the Company relating to the Assets prior to the closing date. Additionally, the Company retained all liabilities arising in connection with the manufacture or commercialization of Totect® by the Company prior to the closing date of the Transaction.

We expect to record a loss on sale of the assets estimated to be approximately $1,300,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The future royalty amounts received, if any, will be reflected as a recovery on the loss of the sale on assets when earned over the royalty term.

Portions of the Agreement are subject to a FOIA Confidential Treatment Request to the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Rule 24b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
