Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Other Events, Financial Statem


Item 1.01. Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 25, 2013, DARA BioSciences, Inc. (the "Company") entered into a Master Service Agreement (the "CSO Agreement") with Alamo Pharma Services, Inc. ("Alamo"), pursuant to which Alamo will provide the Company with a dedicated sales force for the promotion of the Company's Soltamox, Gelcair and Bionect products and certain complementary products of Mission Pharmacal Company ("Mission"). Alamo is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mission. Concurrent with the CSO Agreement, the Company also entered into a related Sales Representative Sharing Agreement and a promotion agreement (together with the CSO Agreement, the "Agreements") with Mission and Alamo, whereby the Company will share the costs and expenses of the sales force with Mission. Initially, the sales force will consist of 20 individuals. Alamo will be responsible for the hiring, training, and compensation of the sales force and will provide certain sales support in connection therewith. Under the terms of the Agreements, the Company will pay Alamo a fixed monthly fee, subject to an annual escalator, and will reimburse Alamo for certain expenses. The Company will also be responsible for recruiting fees in connection with new hires for the sales force, as well as certain implementation fees. The Agreements have a term of three years, subject to automatic one-year renewals unless either party provides at least 60 days' written notice of termination prior to the end of the relevant term. The Agreements may also be terminated by any party for convenience with 3 months' notice, and may be terminated for cause with 30 days' notice. During the first 12 months of the promotion agreement's term, Mission will make certain monthly minimum payments to Alamo for promoting Mission's products. The promotion agreement includes two evaluation periods: (i) 12 months into the term, either party may terminate, the parties may mutually agree to continue under the initial arrangement, or the parties may mutually agree to move to a revenue-sharing model, and (ii) 15 months into the term, either party may terminate or the parties may mutually agree to transition to a revenue-sharing model. The promotion agreement provides that in the event a specified revenue milestone is achieved, a revenue-sharing mechanism would be triggered beginning with the second year of the term pursuant to which certain revenues would be shared between the Company and Mission at specified percentages. The Agreements contain standard representations, warranties and indemnification provisions.
