Unless otherwise indicated, all capitalized terms used herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Schedule 13D and, unless amended hereby, all information previously filed remains in effect.

 

Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.

 

Item 4 is amended to add the following paragraph immediately following the sixth paragraph:

 

On August 8, 2022, the Company issued 8,000,000 Ordinary Shares at a per share price of $1.55 per Ordinary Share to AHP LP pursuant to a Share Subscription Agreement dated August 4, 2022. In addition, the Company issued (i) 6,451,612 Ordinary Shares to Athyrium Opportunities IV Co-Invest 2 LP, (ii) 850,000 Ordinary Shares to Brian Markison, and (iii) 150,000 Ordinary Shares to James Schaub, in each case at the same price of $1.55 per Ordinary Share pursuant to a Share Subscription Agreement between the Company and the respective purchaser.

 

Item 5. Interest in Securities of the Issuer.

 

The information set forth in Items 2, 3 and 4 is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 5.

The Reporting Persons may be deemed to beneficially own an aggregate of 24,763,859 Ordinary Shares, which constitutes approximately 25.0% of the Company’s outstanding Ordinary Shares, calculated in accordance with Rule 13d-3 under the Act. The filing of this Amendment No. 3 to the Schedule 13D shall not be construed as an admission that a Reporting Person beneficially owns those Ordinary Shares held by any other Reporting Person.

In addition, as a result of the Shareholders Agreement, the Avista Funds may be deemed to be part of such a “group” with the Altchem Entities with respect to the Company’s securities.  Based on the disclosure in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed on April 25, 2022, (i) Orbit A-I may be deemed to beneficially own 1,182,243 Ordinary Shares, which represents approximately 1.2% of the outstanding Ordinary Shares calculated in accordance with the requirements of Rule 13d-3 under the Act, and (ii) Altchem Limited, as the holder of 22,485,297 Ordinary Shares and the manager of Orbit A-I, may be deemed to beneficially own 23,667,540 Ordinary Shares, which represents approximately 23.9% of the outstanding Ordinary Shares calculated in accordance with the requirements of Rule 13d-3 under the Act.

 

(b) The number of Ordinary Shares as to which each of the Reporting Persons has sole or shared power to vote, direct the vote, dispose or direct the disposition are as set forth in rows seven through ten of the cover pages hereof.

(d)               The Company has all requisite power and authority to enter into, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby, and the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by the Company and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly and validly authorized by all necessary legal action on the part of the Company, and no further consent or authorization of the Company or its Subsidiaries or the board of directors of the Company or its Subsidiaries is required. No shareholder or equityholder approvals are required under the constitution of the Company or the charter or by-laws of any of its Subsidiaries, any instrument or agreement to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a party, or under the rules of the Trading Market on which the Ordinary Shares are traded (including the Nasdaq Global Select Market, if applicable) in connection with the issuance of the Shares.

3.2              Representations, Warranties and Covenants of the Purchaser

 

The Purchaser hereby represents, warrants and covenants to the Company as of the Closing:

 

(a)               The Purchaser has all requisite legal and corporate or other power and capacity and has taken all requisite corporate or other action to execute and deliver this Agreement, to subscribe for the Shares and to carry out and perform all of its obligations under this Agreement; and (b) this Agreement constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Purchaser, enforceable against the Purchaser in accordance with its terms, except (i) as limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar Laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights generally and (ii) as limited by equitable principles generally.

 

(b)              At the time the Purchaser was offered the Shares, it was, and as of the date hereof it is, an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 under the Securities Act. The Purchaser is aware of the Company’s business affairs and financial condition and has had access to and has acquired sufficient information about the Company to reach an informed and knowledgeable decision to acquire the Shares. The Purchaser has such business and financial experience as is required to give it the capacity to protect its own interests in connection with the subscription for the Shares. The Purchaser acknowledges that it has had the opportunity to review the Company’s filings with the Commission and has been afforded (i) the opportunity to ask such questions as it has deemed necessary of, and to receive answers from, representatives of the Company concerning the terms and conditions of the offering of the Shares and the merits and risks of investing in the Shares and (ii) the opportunity to obtain such additional information that the Company possesses or can acquire without unreasonable effort or expense that is necessary to make an informed investment decision with respect to the investment.

 

7

 

 

(c)               The Purchaser is purchasing the Shares for its own account, the accounts of its affiliates or the accounts of Persons for whom the Purchaser exercises discretionary investment authority (all of whom the Purchaser hereby represents and warrants are “accredited investors” within the meaning of Rule 501(a) of Regulation D promulgated by the Commission pursuant to the Securities Act) for investment purposes only, and not with a present view to, or for, resale, distribution or fractionalization thereof, in whole or in part (within the meaning of the Securities Act) in violation of the Securities Act. The Purchaser understands that its acquisition of the Shares has not been registered under the Securities Act or registered or qualified under any state securities Law in reliance on specific exemptions therefrom, which exemptions may depend upon, among other things, the bona fide nature of the Purchaser’s investment intent as expressed herein. The Purchaser will not, directly or indirectly, offer, sell, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose of (or solicit any offers to buy, purchase or otherwise acquire or take a pledge of) the Shares except in compliance with the Securities Act and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

 

(d)              The Purchaser understands that the Shares being offered and sold to it in reliance on specific exemptions from the registration requirements of United States federal and state securities Laws and that the Company is relying in part upon the truth and accuracy of, and the Purchaser’s compliance with, the representations, warranties, agreements, acknowledgements and understandings of the Purchaser set forth herein in order to determine the availability of such exemptions and the eligibility of the Purchaser to acquire the Shares. The Purchaser further acknowledges and understands that the Shares may not be resold or otherwise transferred except in a transaction registered under the Securities Act or unless an exemption from such registration is available.

 

(e)               The Purchaser understands that nothing in this Agreement or any other materials presented to the Purchaser in connection with the subscription for or the issuance of the Shares constitutes legal, tax or investment advice. The Purchaser has consulted such legal, tax and investment advisors and made such investigations as the Purchaser, in its sole discretion, has deemed necessary or appropriate in connection with its subscription for the Shares.

 

(f)                Dispositions.

 

(i)                 The Purchaser agrees that it will not, prior to the effectiveness of the Resale Registration Statement (as defined below), if then prohibited by Law or regulation other than pursuant to an available exemption under the Securities Act: (i) sell, offer to sell, solicit offers to buy, dispose of, loan, pledge or grant any right with respect to (collectively, a “Disposition”) the Shares; or (ii) engage in any hedging or other transaction which is designed or could reasonably be expected to lead to or result in a Disposition of the Shares by the Purchaser or an affiliate; provided, however, that the Purchaser may consummate any Disposition or any other transaction or transfer at any time so long as such Disposition, transfer or transaction does not violate applicable Law; provided, further, that the Company shall provide all assistance as required by Section 4.5 hereof.

 

8

 

 

(ii)              The Purchaser agrees that it has not directly or indirectly, nor has any Person acting on behalf of or pursuant to any understanding with the Purchaser, engaged in any purchases or sales of the Company’s securities (including, without limitation, any Short Sales involving the Company’s securities) since the time that the Purchaser was first contacted by the Company or any other Person regarding the transactions contemplated hereby. The Purchaser covenants that neither it nor any Person acting on its behalf or pursuant to any understanding with it will engage in any purchases or sales of the Company’s securities (including, without limitation, any Short Sales involving the Company’s securities) prior to the time that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are publicly disclosed.

 

(g)               The Purchaser understands that no United States federal or state agency or any other government or governmental agency has passed upon or made any recommendation or endorsement of the Shares.

 

(h)              Legend.

 

(i)                 The Purchaser understands that the Shares shall bear a restrictive legend in substantially the following form (and a stop transfer order may be placed against transfer of the certificates for the Shares):

 

“THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED, OR THE SECURITIES LAWS OF ANY STATE OF THE UNITED STATES OR IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION. THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED HEREBY MAY NOT BE OFFERED, SOLD OR TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FOR THE SECURITIES UNDER APPLICABLE SECURITIES LAWS UNLESS OFFERED, SOLD OR TRANSFERRED PURSUANT TO AN AVAILABLE EXEMPTION FROM THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THOSE LAWS.

 

THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO TRANSFER, OWNERSHIP AND OTHER RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH IN THE SHARE SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT, DATED AUGUST 4, 2022, BY AND BETWEEN RVL PHARMACEUTICALS PLC AND THE PURCHASER NAMED THEREIN, AS MAY BE AMENDED FROM TIME TO TIME, COPIES OF WHICH ARE ON FILE WITH AND AVAILABLE FROM THE SECRETARY OF RVL PHARMACEUTICALS PLC, WITHOUT COST.”

 

4.REGISTRATION RIGHTS

 

4.1              Definitions.

 

For the purpose of this Section 4:

 

(a)               the term “Resale Registration Statement” shall mean any registration statement required to be filed by Section 4.2 below, and shall include any preliminary prospectus, final prospectus, exhibit or amendment included in or relating to such registration statements; and

 

9

 

 

(b)              the term “Registrable Shares” means the Shares (as appropriately adjusted for any combinations, share splits, reverse share splits and the like occurring after the date of this Agreement); provided, however, that a Share shall cease to be a Registrable Share upon the earliest to occur of the following: (i) a Resale Registration Statement registering such Share under the Securities Act has been declared or becomes effective and such Share has been sold or otherwise transferred by the holder thereof pursuant to and in a manner contemplated by such effective Resale Registration Statement, (ii) such Share is sold pursuant to Rule 144 under circumstances in which any legend borne by such Share relating to restrictions on transferability thereof, under the Security Act or otherwise, is removed by the Company or (iii) such Share shall cease to be outstanding following its issuance.

 

4.2              Registration Procedures and Expenses.

 

Upon issuance of the Shares pursuant to this Agreement against payment therefor, the Company shall:

 

(a)               file a Resale Registration Statement (the “Mandatory Registration Statement”) with the Commission on or before the date 15 days following the Closing Date (the “Filing Date”) to register all of the Registrable Shares on Form S-3 under the Securities Act (providing for shelf registration of such Registrable Shares under Commission Rule 415). In the event that Form S-3 is not available for the registration of the Registrable Shares, the Company shall register the resale of the Registrable Shares on such other form as is available to the Company;

 

(b)              use its reasonable best efforts to cause such Mandatory Registration Statement to be declared effective as soon as reasonably possible following the Filing Date (or, in any event, within 120 days following the Closing Date) (the “Effectiveness Deadline”);

 

(c)               prepare and file with the Commission such amendments and supplements to such Resale Registration Statement and the prospectus used in connection therewith as may be necessary to keep such Resale Registration Statement continuously effective and free from any material misstatement or omission to state a material fact therein until termination of such obligation as provided in Section 4.4 below, subject to the Company’s right to suspend pursuant to Section 4.3 below;

 

(d)              furnish to the Purchaser such number of copies of prospectuses in conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act and such other documents as the Purchaser may reasonably request, in order to facilitate the public sale or other disposition of all or any of the Registrable Shares by the Purchaser;

 

(e)               file such documents as may be required of the Company for normal securities Law clearance for the resale of the Registrable Shares in such states of the United States as may be reasonably requested by the Purchaser and use its reasonable best efforts to maintain such blue sky qualifications during the period the Company is required to maintain effectiveness of the Resale Registration Statement; provided, however, that the Company shall not be required in connection with this Section 4.2(e) to qualify as a foreign corporation or execute a general consent to service of process in any jurisdiction in which it is not now so qualified or has not so consented;

 

10

 

 

(f)                upon notification by the Commission that the Resale Registration Statement will not be reviewed or is not subject to further review by the Commission, the Company shall, on the next Trading Day following the date of such notification, request acceleration of such Resale Registration Statement (with the requested effectiveness date to be not more than two (2) Trading Days later);

 

(g)               upon notification by the Commission that that the Resale Registration Statement has been declared effective by the Commission, the Company shall file the final prospectus under Rule 424 within the applicable time period prescribed by Rule 424;

 

(h)              advise the Purchaser promptly:

 

(i)                 of the filing with the Commission of any request for acceleration of the Resale Registration Statement and the Resale Registration Statement being declared effective by the Commission;

 

(ii)              of any request by the Commission for amendments to the Resale Registration Statement or amendments to the prospectus or for additional information relating thereto;

 

(iii)            of the issuance by the Commission of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Resale Registration Statement under the Securities Act or of the suspension by any state securities commission of the qualification of the Registrable Shares for offering or sale in any jurisdiction, or the initiation of any proceeding for any of the preceding purposes; and

 

(iv)             of the existence of any fact and the happening of any event that makes any statement of a material fact made in the Resale Registration Statement, the prospectus and amendment or supplement thereto, or any document incorporated by reference therein, untrue, or that requires the making of any additions to or changes in the Resale Registration Statement or the prospectus in order to make the statements therein not misleading;

 

(i)                 in the event that the applicable listing standards of the Trading Market on which the Company’s Ordinary Shares trade are satisfied, the Company shall prepare and file a listing application with such Trading Market for the Company’s Ordinary Shares (or such other Trading Market on which the Company’s Ordinary Shares are then listed and traded) to list all Shares covered by the Resale Registration Statement and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to have the Shares approved for listing on such Trading Market by the initial effective date of such Resale Registration Statement, subject only to official notice of issuance; and

 

11

 

 

(j)                bear all expenses in connection with the procedures in paragraphs (a) through (i) of this Section 4.2 and the registration of the Registrable Shares on such Resale Registration Statement and the satisfaction of the blue sky laws of such states.

 

4.3              Prospectus Suspension.

 

The Purchaser acknowledges that the Company may suspend the use of the prospectus forming a part of the Resale Registration Statement until such time as an amendment to the Resale Registration Statement has been filed by the Company and declared effective by the Commission, or until such time as the Company has filed an appropriate report with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act if the Company (x) determines in good faith that the Company’s ability to pursue or consummate a transaction would be materially adversely affected by any required disclosure of such transaction in such Resale Registration Statement or other registration statement or (y) has experienced some other material non-public event the disclosure of which at such time, in the good faith judgment of the Company, would materially adversely affect the Company. The Purchaser hereby covenants that it will not sell any Registrable Shares pursuant to said prospectus during the period commencing at the time at which the Company gives the Purchaser notice of the suspension of the use of said prospectus and ending at the time the Company gives the Purchaser notice that the Purchaser may thereafter effect sales pursuant to said prospectus; provided, that such suspension periods shall in no event exceed 30 calendar days in any 12-month period and that, in the good faith judgment of the Company’s board of directors, the Company would, in the absence of such delay or suspension hereunder, be required under state or federal securities Laws to disclose any corporate development, a potentially significant transaction or event involving the Company, or any negotiations, discussions, or proposals directly relating thereto, in either case the disclosure of which would reasonably be expected to have a Company Material Adverse Effect upon the Company or its shareholders. The Company shall provide prompt notice, but in any event within one (1) business day following the suspension, to the Purchaser (or its assignees or transferees) whose Registrable Shares are included in such Resale Registration Statement.

 

4.4              Termination of Obligations.

 

The obligations of the Company pursuant to Section 4.2 hereof shall cease and terminate, with respect to any Registrable Shares, upon the earlier to occur of (a) such time such Registrable Shares have been resold by the Purchaser, or (b) such time as such Registrable Shares no longer remain Registrable Shares pursuant to Section 4.1(b) hereof.

 

4.5              Reporting Requirements.

 

(a)               With a view to making available the benefits of certain rules and regulations of the Commission that may at any time permit the sale of the Shares to the public without registration or pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3, the Company agrees to:

 

(i)                 make and keep public information available, as those terms are understood and defined in Rule 144;

 

12

 

 

(ii)              so long as the Purchaser owns Registrable Shares, to furnish to the Purchaser upon request (A) a written statement by the Company as to whether it is in compliance with the reporting requirements of Rule 144 and the Exchange Act, or whether it is qualified as a registrant whose securities may be resold pursuant to Commission Form S-3 and (B) such other information as may be reasonably requested to permit the Purchaser to sell such securities pursuant to Rule 144; and

 

(iii)            take such further action as the Purchaser may reasonably request, including as applicable, providing instructions to the Transfer Agent for the Shares in order to facilitate a sale or transfer of the Shares, requesting its legal counsel to issue a legal opinion to such Transfer Agent for the shares if required by such Transfer Agent to effect the removal of the legend hereunder or procuring the removal of any restrictive legend applicable to the Shares, all to the extent required from time to time to enable the Purchaser to sell the Shares without registration under the Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by Rule 144.

 

4.6              Blue Sky.

 

The Company shall obtain and maintain all necessary blue sky law permits and qualifications, or secured exemptions therefrom, required by any state for the offer and sale of Registrable Shares.

 

4.7              Transfer of Registration Rights.

 

The registration rights applicable to the Shares set forth in this this Section 4 shall only be assignable or transferrable in connection with any assignment or transfer of Shares to an affiliate of the Purchaser (each, a “Permitted Transferee”). Any Permitted Transferee of any Shares shall have all of the same rights as the Purchaser to cause the Company to register such Registrable Shares as set forth in this Section 4. Upon any assignment or transfer of Registrable Shares to any Permitted Transferee, the Company shall comply in all respects with all agreements and covenants in this Section 4 (including, without limitation, Section 4.5) with respect to the applicable Permitted Transferee as if each such Permitted Transferee was the Purchaser.

No waiver of any default with respect to any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a continuing waiver in the future or a waiver of any subsequent default or a waiver of any other provision, condition or requirement hereof, nor shall any delay or omission of any party to exercise any right hereunder in any manner impair the exercise of any such right.

 

14

5.12          Rescission and Withdrawal Right.

 

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in (and without limiting any similar provisions of) any of the other Transaction Documents, whenever the Purchaser exercises a right, election, demand or option under a Transaction Document and the Company does not timely perform its related obligations within the periods therein provided, then the Purchaser may rescind or withdraw, in its sole discretion from time to time upon written notice to the Company, any relevant notice, demand or election in whole or in part without prejudice to its future actions and rights.

provided, however, that, in the case of clause (ii) above, the Purchaser shall not then be in breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement if such breach has resulted in the circumstances giving rise to the Purchaser’s seeking to terminate its obligation to effect the Closing.
