A statement of the rights, preferences, privileges and restrictions granted to or imposed upon the respective classes or series of shares and upon the holders thereof as established by the Certificate of Incorporation of the Corporation and by any certificate of designations, and the number of shares constituting each class or series and the designations thereof, may be obtained by any stockholder of the Corporation upon written request and without charge from the Secretary of the Corporation at its corporate headquarters.

This Certificate also evidences and entitles the holder hereof to certain Rights as set forth in a Stockholder Rights Agreement between Apricus Biosciences, Inc. and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (or any successor thereto), as Rights Agent, as amended, restated, renewed, supplemented or extended from time to time (the “Rights Agreement”), the terms of which are hereby incorporated herein by reference and a copy of which may be obtained at the principal offices of Apricus Biosciences, Inc. and the stock transfer administration office of the Rights Agent. Under certain circumstances, as set forth in the Rights Agreement, such Rights will be evidenced by separate Certificates and will no longer be evidenced by this Certificate. Apricus Biosciences, Inc. may redeem the Rights at a redemption price of $0.001 per Right, subject to adjustment, under the terms of the Rights Agreement. Apricus Biosciences, Inc. will mail to the holder of this Certificate a copy of the Rights Agreement, as in effect on the date of mailing, without charge promptly after receipt of a written request therefor. Under certain circumstances, Rights issued to or held by Acquiring Persons or any Affiliates or Associates thereof (as defined in the Rights Agreement), and any subsequent holder of such Rights, may become null and void. The Rights shall not be exercisable, and shall be void so long as held, by a holder in any jurisdiction where the requisite qualification, if any, to the issuance to such holder, or the exercise by such holder, of the Rights in such jurisdiction shall not have been obtained or be obtainable.
