Form 8-K for ACURA PHARMACEUTICALS, INC


18-Apr-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and E


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

In connection with the commencement of a "continuous equity" offering under which Acura Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company") may sell shares of its common stock (the "Shares") from time to time in "at-the-market" offerings or certain other transactions (the "Offering"), the Company today filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") a prospectus supplement dated April 18, 2013 (the "Prospectus Supplement"). The Company may sell the Shares in amounts and at times to be determined by the Company from time to time, but has no obligation to sell any of the Shares in the Offering. Actual sales will depend on a variety of factors to be determined by the Company from time to time, including (among others) market conditions, the trading price of the Company's common stock, determinations by the Company of the appropriate sources of funding for the Company and potential uses of the funding available to the Company. The Company intends to use the proceeds from any sale of Shares for general corporate purposes, which may include working capital, capital expenditures, research, development and marketing expenditures, clinical trial expenditures, acquisitions of new technologies, and possible investments in or acquisitions of, complementary business or technologies.

The Offering will occur pursuant to an at market issuance sales agreement (a "Sales Agreement") entered into by the Company with MLV & Co., as agent for the offer and sale of the Shares (the "Agent"). The Sales Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) the sale of all shares of common stock subject to the Sales Agreement, or (ii) termination of the Sales Agreement in accordance with its terms. The Sales Agreement provides that the Company may offer and sell from time to time Shares during the term through the Agent in an aggregate amount not to exceed the amount that can be sold under the Company's shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 33-187075), which amount, as of the date of the Prospectus Supplement, is approximately $13 million. The Sales Agreement provides that the Company will pay the Agent a commission, which shall not be more than 3.0% of the gross sales price of all Shares sold through it as our agent under the Sales Agreement. Under the terms of the Sales Agreement, the Company may also sell the Shares to the Agent as a principal for its own account at prices agreed upon at the time of sale.

Sales of the Shares, if any, may be made in negotiated transaction or transactions that are deemed to be "at-the-market offerings" as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, including sales made directly on the NSADAQ Capital Market or sales made to or though a market maker other than on an exchange. The Company has no obligation to sell any of the Shares in the Offering, and may at any time suspend solicitation and offers under the Sales Agreement.

The Shares will be offered and sold pursuant to the Prospectus Supplement and the Company's shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-187075) filed on March 6, 2013 with the SEC. This Current Report shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration of qualification under the securities laws of any such state.

The Sales Agreement is filed as Exhibit 1.1 to this Current Report. The description of the Sales Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Sales Agreement filed herewith as an exhibit.
