Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously announced by Echo Therapeutics, Inc. (the "Company"), the Company and Medical Technologies Innovation Asia, Ltd. ("MTIA") entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with MTIA and Beijing Sino Tau Shang Pin Tech and Development Corp. ("MTIA Affiliate", and together with MTIA, the "Purchasers") (the "Securities Purchase Agreement"). MTIA was introduced to the Company by Platinum-Montaur Life Sciences, LLC.

Under the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Purchasers purchased a total of 1,818,182 shares of the Company's Common Stock at $2.75 per share. Of the total shares of Common Stock purchased, MTIA purchased 618,182 shares and MTIA Affiliate purchased 1,200,000 shares. The Purchasers also received 181,818 warrants, having a five-year term and an exercise price of $2.75. Of the total warrants received, 61,818 warrants were allocated to MTIA and 120,000 warrants were allocated to MTIA Affiliate. On December 12, 2013, the parties extended the due date of receipt of the purchase proceeds from December 12, 2013 until December 23, 2013 due to administrative issues that the Purchasers encountered in transferring funds to the Company. On December 23, 2013, the parties further extended the due date of receipt of the purchase proceeds for the 618,182 shares and related warrants from MTIA until January 31, 2014. The parties also agreed that, on or prior to Friday, January 31, 2014, the parties would enter into an amendment to the Securities Purchase Agreement whereby MTIA would purchase and pay for the 1,200,000 shares of Echo stock and related warrants that were to be purchased by MTIA Affiliate no later than March 10, 2014.

Due to continued difficulties in transferring funds from MTIA to the Company as a result of Hong Kong banking rules and regulations, on January 29, 2014, the Company, MTIA and MTIA Affiliate entered into an Amendment to Securities Purchase Agreement and License, Development and Commercialization Agreement dated as of January 30, 2014 (the "Amendment") whereby MTIA Affiliate was removed as a purchaser, and MTIA agreed to purchase stock and warrants in three tranches, pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement (the "Amendment"). The Amendment provides that MTIA shall purchase (i) 181,818 shares of stock and 18,182 warrants for a purchase price of $500,000 on January 31, 2014 (the "First Closing"); (ii) 436,364 shares of stock and 43,636 warrants to purchase common stock for a purchase price of $1,200,000 on February 20, 2014 (the "Second Closing"); and (iii) up to 1,200,000 shares of stock and 120,000 warrants for a purchase price of up to $3,300,000 on March 10, 2014 (the "Third Closing"). MTIA will purchase securities in the Third Closing to bring its ownership in the Company up to 9.99% of the outstanding capital stock of the Company on the date of the Third Closing.

In addition, the Amendment modifies the Stock Purchase Agreement to provide that, only upon receipt of funds from MTIA for each of the First Closing, Second Closing and Third Closing will the Company allow an individual designated by MTIA to attend meetings of the Board of Directors of the Company as an observer until the date of the 2015 annual meeting of stockholders.

The Amendment also amends the License, Development and Commercialization Agreement entered into by the Company and MTIA on December 9, 2013 (the "License Agreement") to provide that the Company is not required to commence its obligations under the License Agreement, including the transfer of any technology or other documents, products or information to MTIA, until the Company has received the proceeds from the First Closing, Second Closing and Third Closing.

Finally, the Amendment states that the Company has the right to terminate the Securities Purchase Agreement, as amended, and the License Agreement, as amended, if MTIA does not pay to the Company the proceeds for each of the First Closing, the Second Closing and the Third Closing in a timely manner. Except as set forth in the Amendment, all other provisions of the Securities Purchase Agreement and License Agreement remain in effect.


Although the Amendment provides that the Company must receive funds from MTIA for the First Closing no later than January 31, 2014, the Company is currently in the process of accepting funds for the First Closing over a period of approximately two weeks in order to accommodate bank closures during the Chinese New Year and restrictions that MTIA has encountered in transferring funds in excess of $60,000 per day to the Company. The Company has confirmed receipt of a portion of the funds and continues to work closely with MTIA to ensure that the remainder of the funds for the First Closing are being sent in accordance with the process agreed upon by the Company and MTIA.
