Deerfield Private Design Fund III and Deerfield Partners are collectively referred to herein as the “Deerfield Funds”. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined in this Amendment have the meanings ascribed to them in the Schedule 13D.

  

Item 3.Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

 

Item 3 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended by adding the following:

As previously reported in Item 4 of the Schedule 13D, on April 26, 2022, the Participating Funds and the Company entered into the Commitment Letter, pursuant to which the Participating Funds agreed to provide, severally and not jointly, a $35.0 million term loan facility to the Company upon the terms, and subject to the conditions, set forth therein. As previously reported, the Commitment Letter also provided, among other things, that upon the closing of the New Facility, the Company would issue the New Facility Warrants to the Participating Funds.

In accordance with the Commitment Letter, on June 30, 2022 the Participating Funds, the Company and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as administrative agent for the lenders named therein, entered into an amended and restated credit agreement (the “Amended and Restated Credit Agreement”) pursuant to which the Participating Funds agreed to make, refinance or otherwise continue and/or maintain a $35.0 million term loan (the “Term Loan”) to the Company. The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement amended and restated the Company’s existing credit agreement, dated May 20, 2019 (the “Original Credit Agreement”), among the Company, the lenders from time to time party thereto (including Deerfield Private Design Fund III), Wilmington Trust, National Association, as administrative agent and OrbiMed Royalty Opportunities II, LP, as origination agent (“OrbiMed”). Upon the execution and delivery of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, and pursuant to the terms thereof, (i) Orbimed’s $20 million portion of the term loan debt under the Original Credit Agreement was repaid in full (plus accrued but unpaid interest thereon) and OrbiMed received from the Company its share of fees and expenses payable to the lenders under the Original Credit Agreement in connection with the refinancing and accrued but unpaid interest on such repaid amount, (ii) Deerfield Private Design Fund III’s $20 million portion of the term loan debt under the Original Credit Agreement was replaced by $17.5 million in Term Loan debt under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement and Deerfield Private Design Fund III was repaid such $2.5 million difference in principal (plus its 0.5% commitment fee under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement), and received from the Company its share of fees payable to the lenders under the Original Credit Agreement in connection with the refinancing (and accrued but unpaid interest on its $20 million debt under the Original Credit Agreement) , and (iii) Deerfield Partners funded its $17.5 million portion of the Term Loan under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (less its 0.5% commitment fee thereunder).

 

CUSIP No.  005111109 Page 9 of 14 Pages

 

In connection with, and as consideration for, the execution of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (and consistent with the Commitment Letter), on June 30, 2022, the Company and the Participating Funds entered into a Warrant Purchase Agreement (the “2022 Warrant Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company issued to each Participating Fund a warrant to purchase up to an aggregate 1,889,509 shares of Common Stock (3,799,018 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate) at an exercise price of $1.1114 per share, subject to adjustment as provided therein (the “2022 Warrants”).

 

Item 4.Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended to add the following:

 

As previously reported, the Participating Funds entered into the Commitment Letter in order to facilitate the Asset Sale Transaction pursuant to the asset purchase agreement, dated as of April 26, 2022, between the Company and Medtronic (the “Medtronic Sale Agreement”), a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 2.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company on April 27, 2022. On June 30, 2022, the Company completed the first of two closings (the “First Closing”) contemplated by the Medtronic Sale Agreement. The Participating Funds entered into, and consummated the transactions contemplated by, the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement and the Warrant Purchase Agreement in connection with, and in order to satisfy a condition to, the consummation of the First Closing.

The Company’s obligations under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement are, subject to certain exceptions, secured by a first priority perfected lien on and security interest in substantially all of the Company’s existing and after-acquired tangible and intangible assets. Certain existing subsidiaries of the Company may be required to grant liens on and security interests in substantially all of their existing and after-acquired tangible and intangible assets, and to guarantee the obligations of the Company under the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, subject to conditions set forth in the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement.

 

The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement contains certain customary affirmative covenants, representations and warranties and other terms and conditions. The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement also contains certain customary negative covenants, including, but not limited to, restrictions on the Company’s ability and that of its subsidiaries to merge and consolidate with other companies, incur indebtedness, grant liens or security interests on assets, pay dividends or make other restricted payments, sell or otherwise transfer assets or enter into transactions with affiliates. The Amended and Restated Credit Agreement provides that, upon the occurrence of certain events of default, the Company’s obligations thereunder may be accelerated. Such events of default include payment defaults to the lenders, material inaccuracies of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, cross-defaults to certain other indebtedness, voluntary and involuntary bankruptcy proceedings, certain money judgments, change of control events and other customary events of default.

Warrant Purchase Agreement and 2022 Warrants

 

On June 30, 2022, the Company and the Participating Funds entered into the 2022 Warrant Purchase Agreement and the Company issued the 2022 Warrants to the Participating Funds as consideration for the execution and delivery of the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement and the Term Loan thereunder. The Warrant Purchase Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and each Participating Fund. Pursuant to the Warrant Purchase Agreement, the Company also agreed to indemnify the Participating Funds and other indemnified persons for certain liabilities described therein.

 

The 2022 Warrants are exercisable on a cash or cashless (net exercise) basis, and are subject to a 4.9% beneficial ownership limitation, as well as certain other customary anti-dilution adjustments upon the occurrence of certain events such as stock splits, subdivisions, reclassifications or combinations of Common Stock. Upon the consummation of a “Major Transaction” (as defined in the 2022 Warrants), holders of the 2022 Warrants may elect to (i) have their 2022 Warrants redeemed by the Company for an amount equal to the Black-Scholes value of such Warrant (calculated in accordance with the terms of the 2022 Warrants), in cash or, if applicable, in the form of the consideration paid to the Company’s stockholders in a Major Transaction (e.g., securities or other property of the buyer), or (ii) have such 2022 Warrants be assumed by the successor to the Company in a Major Transaction, if applicable. Holders of the 2022 Warrants are also entitled to participate in any dividends or distributions to holders of Common Stock at the time such dividends or distributions are paid to such stockholders.

Registration Rights Agreement

 

On June 30, 2022, in connection with the issuance of the 2022 Warrants, the Participating Funds and the Company also entered into a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”), pursuant to which the Company agreed file a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 or such form of registration statement as is then available (the “Registration Statement”) under the Securities Act with the Securities and Exchange Commission to register the resale of the Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement), including the shares of Common Stok issuable upon exercise of the 2022 Warrants and any other shares of Common Stock held by, or issuable upon exercise or conversion of, or distribution in connection with, other securities held by the Reporting Persons as of the date of the Registration Rights Agreement. The Company is required to file the Registration Statement within 45 days after the date of the Registration Rights Agreement and to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain effectiveness of any such Registration Statement as soon as practicable. In addition, for a period of five years following the execution of the Registration Rights Agreement, or until all Registrable Securities are registered or no longer subject to restrictions on transfer (whichever is earlier), the Participating Funds have certain “piggy-back” registration rights with respect to registration statements filed during such period.

 

The Registration Rights Agreement contains certain liquidated damages or other cash settlement provisions with respect to delays in registering securities as required by the Registration Rights Agreement. The Company has agreed to generally pay all reasonable expenses incidental to its obligations and performance under the Registration Rights Agreement, other than underwriting discounts and commissions and such other charges. The registration rights granted in the Registration Rights Agreement are subject to certain customary conditions and limitations, as well as customary indemnification and contribution provisions.

 

The foregoing summary of the Registration Rights Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Registration Rights Agreement, a copy of which is filed (or incorporated by reference) as Exhibit 11 to the Schedule 13D.
