Item 8.01 Other Events

In the last few weeks, three of Patheon’s N.V.’s (“Patheon” or the “Company”) manufacturing sites experienced temporary work stoppages due to power outages and weather-related events. These were isolated events and did not impact other Patheon manufacturing sites around the world.

The sites impacted are in Florence, South Carolina; Greenville, North Carolina; and, Manati, Puerto Rico.
A fire at a power plant in Puerto Rico resulted in a power outage across most of the island, including Patheon’s manufacturing site in Manati.
Hurricane Matthew caused a loss of power at the Florence site and local flooding on roadways near our Greenville site.
In all three cases, there was no damage to the Patheon facilities.
The decision to temporarily close each facility was either due to a lack of power or to ensure the safety of our employees traveling to and from work.
The Manati and Florence sites have resumed full operations; the Greenville site is expected to resume operations in the course of next week.
The Company will provide an update to investors in early November that will review the impact of these events on Patheon’s fiscal fourth quarter 2016 results. The Company does not expect these events to impact 2017 results.
Patheon will review its fourth quarter fiscal 2016 results and the outlook for fiscal 2017 on its quarterly earnings call in December.
