Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On June 8, 2017, Fennec Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Company” or “Fennec”) entered into subscription agreements in connection with a non-brokered private placement (the “Offering”) of 1,900,000 common shares of the Company (the “Shares”) for gross proceeds of US$7,600,000. Each Share was issued at a price of US$4.00 per Share. The Offering was conducted in reliance on Regulation D and Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”).


For Canadian securities law purposes, the Shares will be subject to a hold period, which will expire four months from their date of issuance. For United States securities law purposes, the Shares have not been registered under the Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration under the Act or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Act. It is anticipated that the Company will use the proceeds of the Offering toward the Company’s continued development of Sodium Thiosulfate (STS) for the prevention of platinum-induced ototoxicity in pediatric cancer patients and for other general corporate purposes.
