Item 8.01. Other Events.


On December 28, 2023, the Company terminated the Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”), dated as of September 1, 2021, as amended, by and between the Company, as lender, and Melt Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Melt”), as borrower, which provided for a senior secured term loan with an initial aggregate principal amount of $13.5 million bearing interest at 12.50% per annum. As of the date of termination, approximately $18.4 million remained outstanding under the Loan Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of a Settlement and Payoff Agreement, dated as of December 28, 2023, by and between the Company and Melt (the “Settlement Agreement”), the Company received 2,260,000 shares of Melt’s Series B-1 Preferred Stock and 74,256 shares of Melt’s Series B Preferred Stock in consideration for the full payment of all amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreement (other than contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim has been made). The Settlement Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and releases of the parties and requires the parties to enter into a registration rights agreement providing the Company with rights consistent with other holders of preferred stock of Melt.


In addition to the preferred stock acquired by the Company upon settlement of all amounts outstanding under the Loan Agreement, the Company owns 3,500,000 shares of common stock of Melt. The equity of Melt held by the Company following the settlement represents an aggregate of approximately 47% of the outstanding equity interests of Melt. The Company also owns royalty rights in certain drug candidates being developed by Melt following the termination date of the Loan Agreement.
