Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

Common Stock Sales Agreement with H.C. Wainwright

On September 26, 2016, XBiotech Inc. (“we,” “us” or the “Company”) entered into a Common Stock Sales Agreement (the “Sales Agreement”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co. LLC (“H.C. Wainwright”) which establishes an at-the-market equity program pursuant to which we may offer and sell shares of our common stock, no par value per share (“Common Stock”), from time to time as set forth in the Sales Agreement. The Sales Agreement provides for the sale of shares of our Common Stock (“Shares”) having an aggregate offering price of up to $50,260,000.

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Sales Agreement, H.C. Wainwright will use its commercially reasonable efforts consistent with its normal trading and sales practices to sell the Shares from time to time, based upon our instructions, including any price, time or size limits we specify. We have agreed to pay H.C. Wainwright a commission at a fixed rate equal to three percent (3.0%) of the gross proceeds from each sale of Shares, and to provide H.C. Wainwright with customary indemnification rights. In addition, we have agreed to pay certain expenses incurred by H.C. Wainwright in connection with the Sales Agreement, including up to $50,000 of the fees and disbursements of their counsel. The Sales Agreement will terminate upon the sale of all of the Shares under the Sales Agreement, unless terminated earlier by either party as permitted under the Sales Agreement.

Sales of the Shares, if any, under the Sales Agreement will be made in transactions that are deemed to be “at the market” offerings as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), including sales made from time to time directly on or through the Nasdaq Global Select Market, on any other existing trading market for the Shares, to or through a market maker other than on an exchange or otherwise, in negotiated transactions at market prices prevailing at the time of sale or at prices related to such prevailing market prices, and/or in any other method permitted by law. We have no obligation to sell any of the Shares, and, at any time, we may suspend offers under the Sales Agreement or terminate the Sales Agreement.

Sales of Shares under the Sales Agreement will be made pursuant to the registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-213218), which was declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 1, 2016, and a related Prospectus Supplement filed with the SEC on September 26, 2016.

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any Shares under the Sales Agreement, nor shall there be any sale of such Shares in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.

The foregoing description of the Sales Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Sales Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated by reference herein and into the Registration Statement.

The opinion of our counsel regarding the validity of the Shares that will be issued pursuant to the Sales Agreement is filed herewith as Exhibit 5.1. This opinion is also filed with reference to, and is hereby incorporated by reference into, the Registration Statement.
