Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 9, 2013, Hardinge Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Controlled Equity OfferingSM Sales Agreement (the "Agreement") with Cantor Fitzgerald & Co., as sales agent ("Cantor"), under which the Company may, from time to time, sell shares of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Shares"), having an aggregate offering price of up to $25 million through Cantor.

Upon delivery of a placement notice and subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, Cantor may sell the Shares by methods deemed to be an "at-the-market" offering as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), including sales made directly on the Nasdaq Global Select Market, on any other existing trading market for the common stock or to or through a market maker. In addition, with the prior consent of the Company, Cantor may sell the common stock by any other method permitted by law, including in privately negotiated transactions. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, Cantor will use commercially reasonable efforts, consistent with its normal trading and sales practices and applicable state and federal laws, rules and regulations and the rules of the Nasdaq Global Select Market, to sell the Shares from time to time, based upon the Company's instructions.

The Company is not obligated to, and the Company cannot provide any assurances that it will, make any sales of the Shares under the Agreement. The Agreement will terminate upon the earlier of (i) sale of the Shares under the Agreement having an aggregate offering price of $25.0 million and (ii) the termination of the Agreement as permitted therein. The Agreement may be terminated by Cantor or the Company at any time upon 10 days notice to the other party, or by Cantor at any time in certain circumstances, including the occurrence of a material adverse change in the Company.

The Company will pay Cantor a commission of up to 3.0% of the gross sales price per share sold and has agreed to provide Cantor with customary indemnification and contribution rights. The Company has also agreed to reimburse Cantor for certain specified expenses, including the fees and disbursements of its legal counsel, in an amount not to exceed $50,000.

The Agreement is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this report. The description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement filed herewith as an exhibit to this report.

The opinion of the Company's counsel regarding the validity of the Shares that will be issued pursuant to the Agreement is also filed herewith as Exhibit 5.1.

The Shares will be issued pursuant to the Company's previously filed and effective Registration Statement on Form S-3 (333-187678), which was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on April 18, 2013, the base prospectus filed as part of such Registration Statement and the prospectus supplement dated August 9, 2013, filed by the Company with the SEC. This report shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the Shares in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration of qualification under the securities laws.
