Item 8.01Other Events.

As previously disclosed, on June 10, 2019, Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions (the “Bankruptcy Petitions,” and the cases commenced thereby, the “Chapter 11 Cases”) for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”). On July 2, 2019, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order that, among other things, established bidding procedures (the “Bidding Procedures”) to sell substantially all of the Debtors’ assets in accordance with Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code (“Section 363”).

As previously disclosed, on August 5, 2019, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Hikma Purchase Agreement”) with Hikma Pharmaceuticals USA Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Hikma”), pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell, transfer and assign to Hikma, pursuant to Section 363, the Company’s naloxone 8mg unit-dose nasal spray and epinephrine 7mg and 8.5mg unit-dose nasal spray products and related equipment and other assets, in consideration for a purchase price of $17,000,000 in cash. On August 29, 2019, the Company consummated the transactions contemplated by the Hikma Purchase Agreement.

In connection with the Chapter 11 Cases, the Debtors continue to pursue additional transactions in accordance with the Bidding Procedures.

The foregoing description of the Hikma Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the full text of the Hikma Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on August 8, 2019.

Cautionary Statements Regarding Trading in the Company’s Securities

The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s securities during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases is highly speculative and poses substantial risks.  Trading prices for the Company’s securities may bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s securities in the Chapter 11 Cases.  It is unlikely that holders of the Company’s common stock will receive any recovery on account of such securities.

Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This Form 8-K includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” “intend” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words.  All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included in this filing that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects, believes, targets or anticipates will or may occur in the future are forward-looking statements. The Company’s actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain risks and other factors, which could include the following: the failure to consummate the transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of August 6, 2019, by and between the Company and Chilion Group Holdings US, Inc., risks and uncertainties relating to the Chapter 11 Cases, including but not limited to, the Company’s ability to obtain Bankruptcy Court approval with respect to motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, the effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the Company and on the interests of various constituents, Bankruptcy Court rulings in the Chapter 11 Cases and the outcome of the Chapter 11 Cases in general, the length of time the Company will operate under the Chapter 11 Cases, risks associated with third-party motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, the potential adverse effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the Company’s liquidity or results of operations and increased legal and other professional costs necessary to execute the Company’s reorganization, the effects of disruption from the Chapter 11 Cases making it more difficult to maintain business



and operational relationships, to retain key executives and to maintain various licenses and approvals necessary for the Company to conduct its business, uncertainty associated with the Company’s ability to complete the sale of its assets as contemplated by the Bankruptcy Petitions, trading price and volatility of the Company’s common stock as well as other risk factors set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC in addition to those factors, risks and uncertainties described in more detail in the Company’s risk factors set forth in Exhibit 99.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the SEC on August 8, 2019. The Company therefore cautions readers against relying on these forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on the Company’s behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the foregoing cautionary statements. All such statements speak only as of the date made, and, except as required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise













Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
