Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of
Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On July 23, 2013, Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp. ("Raptor Pharmaceutical" or the "Company"), held its 2013 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "Annual Meeting"). At the Annual Meeting, Raptor Pharmaceutical's stockholders approved an amendment (the "Amendment") to the Raptor Pharmaceutical Corp. 2010 Amended and Restated Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (the "Incentive Plan" and, as amended by the Amendment, the "Amended Plan"). On June 4, 2013, the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") approved the Amendment effective as of such date, subject to stockholder approval.

The Amendment has the following effects on the Incentive Plan:
Increases the share reserve available for issuance under the Incentive Plan by 3,000,000 shares to an aggregate of 11,936,383 shares;

Adds a fungible share-counting provision stating that restricted stock and restricted stock unit awards will be counted against the reserve of shares available for issuance under the Incentive Plan as 1.35 shares for every one share actually issued and provides that shares purchased on the open market with the cash proceeds from exercise of any stock options shall not increase the number of shares available for future issuance under the Incentive Plan; and

Provides that the administrator of the Incentive Plan may not cancel an outstanding option whose exercise price is greater than fair market value at the time of cancellation in exchange for cash, without stockholder approval.

A description of the material terms of the Amended Plan is set forth on pages 20 to 25 of the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A for the Annual Meeting filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") on June 7, 2013 and is incorporated herein by reference. That summary and the foregoing description of the Amendment are qualified in their entirety by reference to the text of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, and the Incentive Plan, which is filed as Appendix A to the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A for its 2010 Annual Meeting filed with the Commission on February 5, 2010, and, in each case, is incorporated herein by reference.
