Item 1.01.                                        Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


License Agreement


On October 23, 2018, Neos Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) and NeuRx Pharmaceuticals LLC (“NeuRx”) entered into an Exclusive License Agreement (the “License Agreement”), pursuant to which NeuRx granted an exclusive, royalty-bearing license to the Company to develop, manufacture, and commercialize certain pharmaceutical products containing NeuRx’s proprietary compound designated as NRX 101, referred to by the Company as NT0501, on a world wide basis. NeuRx also granted to the Company certain sub-license rights.


Under the License Agreement, the Company is required to make an upfront payment of $175,000 and certain payments up to an aggregate of $5.45 million upon the satisfaction of certain development milestones. In addition, NeuRx is entitled to royalty payments based on a multi-tier rate, ranging from high single digits to low double digits of aggregate annual net sales during the applicable term specified in the License Agreement on a product-by-product and country-by-country basis, subject to certain adjustment set forth in the License Agreement. If the Company grants a sublicense to one or more sublicensees under the license technology within four years following the date of the License Agreement, the Company is required to pay NeuRx 10% of the sublicensing revenue received from such sublicensees.


The term of the License Agreement is determined on a product-by-product and country-by-country basis, until the later of the expiration of the patent rights licensed to the Company and the expiration of regulatory-based exclusivity for such product in such country. The License Agreement may also be terminated by either party based upon certain uncured breach, or by the Company at any time with advanced notice.


The foregoing descriptions of the material terms of the License Agreement do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and are qualified in their entirety by, reference to the License Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1.


A press release regarding the foregoing is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
