Form 8-K for SPECTRUM PHARMACEUTICALS INC


19-Jul-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Unregistered Sale of Equ


Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Stockholder Purchase Agreement

On July 16, 2013, Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Spectrum"), entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the "Stockholder Purchase Agreement") with Eagle Acquisition Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of Spectrum ("Purchaser"), certain entities affiliated with Warburg Pincus & Co. (the "WP Entities"), and certain entities affiliated with Deerfield Management, LLC (the "Deerfield Entities"). Pursuant to the Stockholder Purchase Agreement, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions described therein, on July 17, 2013 the Purchaser purchased all of the shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the "Common Stock") of Talon Therapeutics, Inc. ("Talon") owned by each of the WP Entities and the Deerfield Entities, issued upon conversion of the outstanding shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock, Series A-2 Preferred Stock and Series A-3 Preferred Stock owned by them, which represented approximately 89% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock, in exchange for, with respect to each share of Common Stock, an amount equal to the Per Share Merger Consideration (as defined below). The Purchaser also purchased certain warrants owned by the Deerfield Entities.

Company Purchase Agreement

On July 16, 2013, Spectrum also entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the "Company Purchase Agreement") with the Purchaser and Talon. Pursuant to the Company Purchase Agreement, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions described therein, on July 17, 2013, the Purchaser purchased 20,100,000 newly issued shares of Common Stock (the "Purchased Shares") from Talon, at a price per share of $0.37. Purchaser paid for the Purchased Shares by delivery of
(i) $20,100.00 in cash, an amount equal to the par value of the Purchased Shares; and (ii) a promissory note in the principal amount of $7,416,900. The acquisition of the shares of Common Stock from Talon pursuant to the Company Purchase Agreement, and from the WP Entities and the Deerfield Entities pursuant to the Stockholder Purchase Agreement, resulted in the ownership by the Purchaser of an amount of shares in excess of 90% of the then outstanding shares of Common Stock. On July 17, 2013, in accordance with the terms of the Company Purchase Agreement, the Purchaser consummated a "short form" merger with Talon in which the Purchaser merged with and into Talon, with Talon remaining as the surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Spectrum (the "Merger"). The Merger was consummated in accordance with Section 253 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the "DGCL").

As a result of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of Common Stock (other than shares of Common Stock owned by the Purchaser or by Spectrum, and shares of Common Stock for which the holder thereof demands and perfects such holder's right to an appraisal (the "Dissenting Shares") in accordance with the applicable provisions of the DGCL) were converted into the right to receive (A) cash equal to $0.05609 per share, without interest and subject to applicable withholding (the "Cash Portion"), and (B) one contingent value right ("CVR" and, together with the Cash Portion, the "Per Share Merger Consideration") representing the right to receive the Milestone Payments (as defined below). Spectrum used cash on hand to fund (i) the Cash Portion of the Per Share Merger Consideration in an aggregate amount of $11,300,000 and (ii) certain outstanding obligations and transaction-related and other expenses of Talon in the aggregate amount of approximately $3,800,000.

Contingent Value Rights Agreement

On July 16, 2013, Spectrum also entered into a Contingent Value Rights Agreement (the "CVR Agreement") with Talon and Corporate Stock Transfer, Inc. as rights agent, which will govern the terms of the payment for the CVR. Pursuant to the CVR Agreement, one CVR shall be issued for (i) each share of Common Stock that Purchaser purchased pursuant to the Stockholder Purchase Agreement, and
(ii) each share of Common Stock outstanding that was owned by a Talon stockholder prior to the effective time of the Merger and was converted into the right to receive Merger Consideration pursuant to the terms of the Company Purchase Agreement. Each CVR will be unregistered and will be non-transferable, subject to limited exceptions. There can be no assurance as to the actual value, if any, of a CVR.


The terms of the CVR Agreement will require the payment of up to an additional aggregate of $195 million in cash (without duplication), subject to applicable withholding and as otherwise set forth in the CVR Agreement (the "Milestone Payments"), upon the satisfaction of the following specific milestones, of which there is no assurance that any may be achieved:

• $5,000,000 upon the achievement of net sales of Marqibo® (vincristine sulfate liposome injection) in excess of $30,000,000 in any calendar year;

• $10,000,000 upon the achievement of net sales of Marqibo in excess of $60,000,000 in any calendar year;

• $25,000,000 upon the achievement of net sales of Marqibo in excess of $100,000,000 in any calendar year;

• $50,000,000 upon the achievement of net sales of Marqibo in excess of $200,000,000 in any calendar year;

. . .



Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement referenced in Item 1.01 above, on July 17, 2013 Spectrum issued the Deerfield Shares to the Deerfield Entities. The Deerfield Shares were issued without registration in reliance upon the exemption provided by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, based in part upon the following: the issuance does not involve any public offering; Spectrum made no solicitation in connection with the transaction, other than communication with the Deerfield Entities; Spectrum obtained representations from the Deerfield Entities regarding their respective investment intent, experience and sophistication; the Deerfield Entities have represented that they are each an "accredited investor" within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Act; Spectrum reasonably believes that the Deerfield Entities are sophisticated within the meaning of Section 4(2) of the Act; and the Deerfield Shares will be issued with restricted securities legends. No underwriting discounts or commissions will be paid in conjunction with the issuance.
