TherapeuticsMD, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)
1. Business, basis of presentation, new accounting standards and summary of significant accounting policies
General
TherapeuticsMD, Inc. (the “Company”), a Nevada corporation, and its condensed consolidated subsidiaries are referred to collectively in this Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q
(“10-Q
Report”) as “TherapeuticsMD,” “we,” “our” and “us.” This
10-Q
Report includes trademarks, trade names and service marks, such as TherapeuticsMD
®
, vitaMedMD
®
, BocaGreenMD
®
, vitaCare
TM
, IMVEXXY
®
, and BIJUVA
®
, which are protected under applicable intellectual property laws and are the property of, or licensed by or to, us. Solely for convenience, trademarks, trade names and service marks referred to in this
10-Q
Report may appear without the
®
, TM or SM symbols, but such references are not intended to indicate, in any way, that we will not assert, to the fullest extent under applicable law, our rights or the right of the applicable licensor to these trademarks, trade names and service marks. We do not intend our use or display of other parties’ trademarks, trade names or service marks to imply, and such use or display should not be construed to imply a relationship with, or endorsement or sponsorship of us by, these other parties.
TherapeuticsMD was previously a women’s healthcare company with a mission of creating and commercializing innovative products to support the lifespan of women from pregnancy prevention through menopause. In December 2022, we changed our business to become a pharmaceutical royalty company, currently receiving royalties on products licensed to pharmaceutical organizations that possess commercial capabilities in the relevant territories. On December 30, 2022 (the “Closing Date”), we completed a transaction (the “Mayne Transaction”) with Mayne Pharma LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Mayne Pharma”) and subsidiary of Mayne Pharma Group Limited, an Australian public company, in which we and our subsidiaries (i) granted Mayne Pharma an exclusive license to commercialize our IMVEXXY, BIJUVA and prescription prenatal vitamin products sold under the BocaGreenMD and vitaMedMD brands (collectively, the “Licensed Products”) in the United States and its possessions and territories, (ii) assigned to Mayne Pharma our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA
®
(together with the Licensed Products, collectively, the “Products”) in the United States and its possessions and territories, and (iii) sold certain other assets to Mayne Pharma in connection therewith.
In a License Agreement, dated December 4, 2022, between TherapeuticsMD and Mayne Pharma (the “Mayne License Agreement”), we granted Mayne Pharma, on the Closing Date, (i) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to research, develop, register, manufacture, have manufactured, market, sell, use, and commercialize the Licensed Products in the United States and its possessions and territories and (ii) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to manufacture, have manufactured, import and have imported the Licensed Products outside the United States for commercialization in the United States and its possessions and territories.
Under the Mayne License Agreement, Mayne Pharma will pay us milestone payments of each of (i) $5.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $100.0 million, (ii) $10.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $200.0 million and (iii) $15.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $300.0 million. Further, Mayne Pharma will pay us royalties on net sales of all Products in the United States at a royalty rate of 8.0% on the first $80.0 million in annual net sales and 7.5% on annual net sales above $80.0 million, subject to certain adjustments, for a period of 20 years following the Closing Date. The royalty rate will decrease to 2.0% on a
Product-by-Product
basis upon the earlier to occur of (i) the expiration or revocation of the last patent covering a Product and (ii) a generic version of a Product launching in the United States. Mayne Pharma will pay us minimal annual royalties of $3.0 million per year for 12 years, adjusted for inflation at an annual rate of 3%, subject to certain further adjustments, including as described below. Upon the expiry of the
20-year
royalty term, the licenses granted to Mayne Pharma under the Mayne License Agreement will become a fully
paid-up
and royalty free license for the Licensed Products.

Under the Transaction Agreement, dated December 4, 2022, between TherapeuticsMD and Mayne Pharma (the “Transaction Agreement”), we sold to Mayne Pharma, at closing, certain assets for Mayne Pharma to commercialize the Products in the United States, including, with the Population Council’s consent, our exclusive license from the Population Council to commercialize ANNOVERA (the “Transferred Assets”).
The total consideration from Mayne Pharma to TherapeuticsMD for the purchase of the Transferred Assets and the grant of the licenses under the Mayne Transaction Agreement was (i) a cash payment of $140.0 million at closing, (ii) a cash payment of approximately $12.1 million at closing for the acquisition of net working capital as determined in accordance with the Transaction Agreement and subject to certain adjustments, (iii) a cash payment of approximately $1.0 million at closing for prepaid royalties in connection with the Mayne License Agreement Amendment (as defined below) and (iv) the right to receive the contingent consideration set forth in the Mayne License Agreement, as amended. The acquisition of net working capital was determined in accordance with the Transaction Agreement and included significant estimates which could change materially for a period of up to two years following the Closing Date.
On the Closing Date, TherapeuticsMD and Mayne Pharma entered into Amendment No. 1 to the Mayne License Agreement (the “Mayne License Agreement Amendment”). Pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement Amendment, Mayne Pharma agreed to pay us approximately $1.0 million in prepaid royalties on the Closing Date. The prepaid royalties will reduce the first four quarterly payments that would have otherwise been payable pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement by an amount equal to $257 thousand per quarterly royalty payment plus interest calculated at 19% per annum accruing from the Closing Date until the date such quarterly royalty payment is paid to us. We and Mayne Pharma settled the $1.5 million of consideration due to Mayne for the assumed obligations under a long-term services agreement (see the section entitled “vitaCare divestiture” below for a discussion of the long-term services agreement), including our minimum payment obligations thereunder.
As the parties agreed, during the second quarter of 2023, Mayne Pharma held back our royalty payment and we funded an additional
$0.9 
million in August 2023 to settle the original
 $1.5 
million payable
.
As part of the transformation that included the Mayne License Agreement, historical results of commercial operations for all periods prior to the Closing Date have been reflected as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated financial statements. Assets and liabilities associated with the commercial business are classified as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Additional disclosures regarding discontinued operations are provided in Note 2 of our condensed consolidated financial statements.
We also have license agreements with strategic partners to commercialize IMVEXXY and BIJUVA outside of the U.S.
 
   
In July 2018, we entered into a license and supply agreement (the “Knight License Agreement”) with Knight Therapeutics Inc. (“Knight”) pursuant to which we granted Knight an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY and BIJUVA in Canada and Israel.
 
   
In September 2019, we entered into an exclusive license and supply agreement (the “Theramex License Agreement”) with Theramex HQ UK Limited (“Theramex”) to commercialize IMVEXXY and BIJUVA outside of the U.S., excluding Canada and Israel. In 2021, Theramex secured regulatory approval for BIJUVA in certain European countries and began commercialization efforts in those countries.
In connection with our transformation into a pharmaceutical royalty company, the termination of our executive management team (except for Mr. Marlan Walker, our former General Counsel and current Chief Executive Officer) and all other employees was completed by December 31, 2022. Severance obligations for all employees other than executive officers were paid in full in January 2023 and severance obligations for terminated executive officers are paid in accordance with their employment agreements and separation agreements as previously disclosed. As of December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2023, we employed one full-time employee primarily engaged in an executive position.
We have engaged external consultants who support our relationship with current partners and assist with certain financial, legal, and regulatory matters and the continued wind-down of our historical business operations. On August 15, 2023, we entered into a master services agreement with JZ Advisory Group, pursuant to which Joseph Ziegler would serve as our Principal Financial Officer. On August 17, 2023 Michael C. Donegan notified us of his decision to resign from the positions of Principal Financial and Accounting Officer of our Company effective as of August 17, 2023. Mr. Ziegler succeeded Mr. Donegan as Principal Financial and Accounting Officer as of the date of Mr. Donegan’s resignation.

vitaCare Divestiture
On April 14, 2022, we completed the divestiture of our former subsidiary vitaCare Prescription Services, Inc. (“vitaCare”) with the sale of all of vitaCare’s issued and outstanding capital stock (the “vitaCare Divestiture”). We received net proceeds of $142.6 million, after deducting transaction costs of $7.2 million, and we recognized a gain on sale of business of $143.4 million. Included in the net proceeds amount was $11.3 
million of customary holdbacks as provided in the stock purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) which we received in 2023. Additionally, the Purchase Agreement provides that we may receive up to an additional
$7.0 
million in
earn-out
consideration, contingent upon vitaCare’s financial performance through 2023 as determined in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement; however, we do not believe this earnout will be realized. We will record the contingent consideration at the settlement amount if and when the consideration is realized or realizable.
The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, covenants, and indemnities of the parties thereto. The commitments under a long-term services agreement related to vitaCare were transferred to Mayne Pharma as part of the Mayne Transaction. In addition, under the Mayne License Agreement Amendment, we owed Mayne Pharma
$1.5 
million payable from one royalty payment. During the second quarter of 2023, Mayne Pharma held back our royalty payment and we funded an additional $0.9 million in August 2023 to settle the original $1.5 million payable.
The divestiture of vitaCare was determined to be a component of discontinued operations in December 2022, when we changed our business by becoming a royalty company and as a result vitaCare activities were reclassified to discontinued operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022.
COVID-19
With multiple variant strains of the
SARS-Cov-2
virus and the
COVID-19
disease that it causes (collectively,
“COVID-19”)
still circulating, we continue to be subject to risks and uncertainties in connection with the
COVID-19
pandemic. The extent of the future impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic on our business continues to be highly uncertain and difficult to predict.
As of the date of issuance of these condensed consolidated financial statements, the future extent to which the
COVID-19
pandemic may continue to materially impact our financial condition, liquidity, or results of operations remains uncertain and difficult to predict. Even after the
COVID-19
pandemic has subsided, we may continue to experience adverse impacts to our business as a result of any economic recession or depression that has occurred or may occur in the future.
Going concern
On December 4, 2022, we entered into agreements with Mayne Pharma pursuant to which we granted Mayne Pharma an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY, BIJUVA, and prescription prenatal vitamin products (in the United States and its possessions and territories), (ii) assign to Mayne Pharma our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA in the United States and its possessions and territories, and (iii) sell certain other assets to Mayne Pharma.
The total consideration from Mayne Pharma to TherapeuticsMD for the purchase of the Transferred Assets and the grant of the licenses under the Mayne License Agreement consisted of (i) a cash payment of $140.0 million at closing, (ii) a cash payment of approximately $12.1 million at closing for the acquisition of net working capital subject to certain adjustments, (iii) a cash payment of approximately $1.0 million at closing for prepaid royalties in connection with the Mayne License Agreement Amendment and (iv) the right to receive the contingent consideration set forth in the Mayne License Agreement, as amended.

On the Closing Date, we repaid all obligations under the Financing Agreement, dated as of April 24, 2019, as amended, with Sixth Street Specialty Lending, Inc., as administrative agent, the various lenders from
time-to-time
party thereto, and certain of our subsidiaries party thereto from time to time as guarantors (the “Financing Agreement”) and the Financing Agreement was terminated.
Following the transaction with Mayne Pharma, our primary source of revenue is from royalties on products licensed to pharmaceutical organizations that possess commercial capabilities in the relevant territories. We may need to raise additional capital to provide additional liquidity to fund our operations until we become cash flow positive. To address our capital needs, we may pursue various equity and debt financing and other alternatives. The equity financing alternatives may include the private placement of equity, equity-linked, or other similar instruments or obligations with one or more investors, lenders, or other institutional counterparties or an underwritten public equity or equity-linked securities offering. Our ability to sell equity securities may be limited by market conditions, including the market price of our common stock, and our available authorized shares.
To the extent that we raise additional capital through the sale of such securities, the ownership interests of our existing stockholders will be diluted, and the terms of these new securities may include liquidation or other preferences that adversely affect the rights of our existing stockholders. If we are not successful in obtaining additional financing, we could be forced to discontinue or curtail our business operations, sell assets at unfavorable prices, or merge, consolidate, or combine with a company with greater financial resources in a transaction that might be unfavorable to us.
On May 1, 2023, we entered into a Subscription Agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with Rubric Capital Management LP (“Rubric”), pursuant to which we agreed to sell to Rubric, or one or more of its affiliates, up to an aggregate of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share (our “Common Stock”), from time to time during the term of the Subscription Agreement in separate draw-downs at our election. On June 29, 2023, we issued and sold 312,525 shares of Common Stock at a price per share equal to $3.6797 pursuant to the Subscription Agreement. We received gross proceeds of $1.15 million from the draw down, before expenses. The Common Stock issued pursuant to the Subscription Agreement was sold and issued without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in reliance on the exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as transactions not involving a public offering and Rule
5-06
of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act as sales to accredited investors, and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws.
If Mayne Pharma’s sales of IMVEXXY, BIJUVA, or ANNOVERA grow more slowly than expected or decline, if the net working capital settlement with Mayne Pharma under the Transaction Agreement is greater than our current estimates, if we are unsuccessful with future financings or if the continued impact of the
COVID-19
pandemic on us or the third-parties we or our licensees rely on or the supply chains related to the third-party contract manufacturers are worse than we anticipate, our existing cash reserves may be insufficient to satisfy our liquidity requirements. The potential impact of these factors in conjunction with the uncertainty of the capital markets raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern for the next twelve months from the issuance of these financial statements.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if we are unable to continue as a going concern.
Basis of presentation
We prepared the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this
10-Q
Report following the requirements of the United States (“U.S.”) Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim reporting. As permitted under those rules, certain notes or other financial information that are normally required by accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete financial statements can be condensed or omitted. However, except as disclosed herein, there has been no material change in the information disclosed in the notes included in our 2022 Annual Report on Form
10-K
(the “2022
10-K
Report”).
As part of the transformation as a result of the Mayne Transaction, historical results of commercial operations for all periods prior to the Closing Date have been reflected as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Assets and liabilities associated with the commercial business are classified as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated balance sheet. Additional disclosures regarding discontinued operations are provided in Note 2 of the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Revenues, expenses, assets, liabilities, and equities can vary during each quarter of the year. Therefore, the results and trends in these interim financial statements may not be representative of those for the full year. In our opinion, all adjustments necessary for a fair
presentation
of the financial statements, which are of a normal and recurring nature, have been made for the interim periods reported. The information included in this
10-Q
Report should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in our 2022
10-K
Report. Certain amounts in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes may not add due to rounding, and all percentages have been calculated using unrounded amounts. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current-period presentation.
New accounting standards
Adoption of new accounting standards
New accounting standards or “
ASU
s” were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements or processes.
Common stock reverse stock split
On May 6, 2022, we completed a reverse stock split of our Common Stock. As a result, shares of our outstanding Common Stock were split at a ratio of
50-for-1
(the “Reverse Stock Split”) with any fractional shares resulting from the Reserve Stock Split rounded up to the next whole share of Common Stock. The number of authorized shares of Common Stock was also correspondingly reduced from 600.0 million shares to 12.0 million shares to give effect to the Reverse Stock Split. Additionally, all rights to receive shares of Common Stock under outstanding warrants, options, restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance stock units (“PSUs”) were adjusted to give effect to the Reverse Stock Split. Furthermore, remaining shares of Common Stock available for future issuance under share-based payment award plans and our employee stock purchase plan were adjusted to give effect to the Reverse Stock Split. Pursuant to Section 78.209 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, the approval of our stockholders was not required for our Board of Directors to effectuate the Reverse Stock Split.
All historical numbers of shares of Common Stock and per share data have been adjusted to give effect to the Reverse Stock Split. Additionally, since the Common Stock par value was unchanged, historical amounts for Common Stock and additional
paid-in
capital have been adjusted to give effect to the Reverse Stock Split.
Increase of authorized shares
On June 26, 2023, at our combined 2022 and 2023 Annual Meeting, our stockholders approved an amendment to our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from 12 million shares to 32 million shares.
Estimates and assumptions
The preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. We evaluate our estimates and assumptions based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ, at times in material amounts, from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Significant accounting policies
The significant accounting policies we use for quarterly financial reporting are disclosed in Note 1 of the accompanying notes to the consolidated financial statements included in our 2022
10-K
report and in the section below.
2. Discontinued Operations
As discussed in Note 1, we changed our business in 2022 by licensing our products to receive royalties and future sales related milestone payments, after granting an exclusive license to commercialize our IMVEXXY, BIJUVA, and prescription prenatal vitamin products sold under the BocaGreenMD and vitaMedMD brands in the United States and assigning our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA to Mayne Pharma.
This plan represented a strategic shift having a major effect on our operations and financial results. Upon our conversion from a commercial pharmaceutical company to a licensing only company with the consummation of the Mayne Transaction, we classified all direct revenues, costs and expenses related to commercial operations, within income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax, in the condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income for all periods
presented. We have not allocated any amounts for shared general and administrative operating support expense to discontinued operations. As required by the terms of the Financing Agreement, proceeds from the Mayne Transaction and the VitaCare Divestiture were used to fully repay our outstanding debt borrowings, and as a result interest expense and amortization of deferred financing costs as well as expense for accretion of Series A Preferred Stock and loss on extinguishment of debt are included within income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax (as disclosed below).
Additionally, the related assets and liabilities have been reported as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.
The total consideration from Mayne Pharma consisted of (i) a cash payment of $140.0 million at closing, (ii) a cash payment of $12.1 million for the acquisition of net working capital subject to certain adjustments, (iii) a cash payment of approximately $1.0 million for prepaid royalties in connection with the Mayne License Agreement Amendment and (iv) the right to receive the contingent consideration set forth in the Mayne License Agreement, as amended.
Our estimate of net working capital at closing was determined in accordance with the Transaction Agreement which establishes the process for the determination of final net working capital. The determination of net working capital includes significant estimates which could change materially for a period of up to two years following the Closing Date. On March 29, 2023, we received Mayne Pharma’s closing net working capital calculation which differed significantly from our estimate of closing net working capital. We believe that our estimate of net working capital is reasonable and intend to resolve this matter through the process outlined in the Transaction Agreement. During the three months ended September 30, 2023, we revised certain estimates pertaining to contracts we were a party to when we were an operating company. These included an incremental accrual of approximately
$2 
million for net working capital adjustments related to the Transaction Agreement
.

7. Commitments and contingencies
Mayne Pharma Agreement
Mayne Pharma paid us approximately $12.1 million at closing on December 30, 2022, for the acquisition of net working capital, as determined in accordance with the Transaction Agreement, and such payment is subject to certain adjustments for a period of up to two years
following the Closing Date. During the three months ended September 30, 2023, we revised certain estimates; including an incremental accrual of approximately
$2
million for net working capital adjustments related to the Transaction Agreement
.

Pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement Amendment, Mayne Pharma also paid us approximately $1.0 million in prepaid royalties on the Closing Date. The prepaid royalties will reduce the first four quarterly payments that would have otherwise been payable pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement by an amount equal to $257,250 per quarterly royalty payment plus interest calculated at 19% per annum accruing from the Closing Date until the date such quarterly royalty payment is paid to us.
Additionally, we owed Mayne Pharma
$1.5 
million payable from one royalty payment. During the second quarter of 2023, Mayne Pharma held back our royalty payment and we funded an additional
$
0.9
 
million in August 2023 to settle the original
$1.5 million
payable. We recognized $(0.1) million and $0.8 million in royalty revenues from Mayne Pharma during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, respectively.
Population Council License Agreement
Under the terms of our license agreement with the Population Council, Inc. (the “Population Council License Agreement”), we paid the Population Council a milestone payment of $20.0 million in 2018, which was within 30 days following the approval by the FDA of the New Drug Application (“NDA”) for ANNOVERA, and $20.0 million in 2019 following the first commercial batch release of ANNOVERA. The aggregate $40.0 million of milestone payments were recorded as license rights. The Population Council was also eligible to receive future payments upon the achievement of certain commercial sales milestones of ANNOVERA. On December 30, 2022, we assigned the ANNOVERA license to Mayne Pharma. Our rights and obligations under the Population Council License Agreement have been transferred to Mayne Pharma and may revert back to us upon the occurrence of certain events.
Legal proceedings
In February 2020, we received a Paragraph IV certification notice letter (the “IMVEXXY Notice Letter”) regarding an Abbreviated New Drug Application (“ANDA”) submitted to the FDA by Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. (“Teva”). The ANDA seeks approval from the FDA to commercially manufacture, use, or sell a generic version of the 4 mcg and 10 mcg doses of IMVEXXY. In the IMVEXXY Notice Letter, Teva alleges that TherapeuticsMD patents listed in the FDA’s Orange Book that claim compositions and methods of IMVEXXY (the “IMVEXXY Patents”) are invalid, unenforceable, and/or will not be infringed by Teva’s commercial manufacture, use, or sale of its proposed generic drug product. The IMVEXXY Patents identified in the IMVEXXY Notice Letter expire in 2032 or 2033. In April 2020, we filed a complaint for patent infringement against Teva in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey arising from Teva’s ANDA filing with the FDA. We are seeking, among other relief, an order that the effective date of any FDA approval of Teva’s ANDA would be a date no earlier than the expiration of the IMVEXXY Patents and equitable relief enjoining Teva from infringing the IMVEXXY Patents. Teva has filed its answer and counterclaim to the complaint, alleging that the IMVEXXY Patents are invalid and not
 
13

infringed. In July 2021, following a proposal by Teva, the District Court entered an order temporarily staying all proceedings in the IMVEXXY litigation, which order was filed under seal. In September 2021, the District Court made available a public version of the order following the parties’ agreement to a consent motion to redact information Teva contended was confidential. The order provides that the statutory stay that prevents the FDA from granting final approval of the ANDA for 30 months from the date of the IMVEXXY Notice Letter will be extended for the number of days that the stay of the IMVEXXY litigation is in place. The length of the stay of the IMVEXXY litigation is dependent on further action by Teva. We have incurred and recorded legal costs amounting to $2.3 million in prepaid expenses and other current assets as of September 30, 2023, for the IMVEXXY Paragraph IV legal proceeding since we believe that we will successfully prevail in this legal proceeding. Upon the successful conclusion of the legal proceeding, the related capitalized legal costs will be reclassified to patents, in license rights and other intangible assets, net, in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets, and such costs will be amortized over the remaining useful life of the patents. If we are unsuccessful in this legal proceeding, then the related capitalized legal costs for this legal preceding and any unamortized IMVEXXY patent costs that were previously capitalized will be immediately expensed in the period in which we become aware of an unsuccessful legal proceeding.
Beginning on December 30, 2022 and per the Mayne License Agreement, Mayne Pharma is responsible for all enforcement of our patents, including the litigation discussed above with respect to Teva.
In September 2023, one of our former contractors retained to market Annovera under Title X, filed a lawsuit that accused us of breach of contract. We answered their complaint and filed breach of contract counterclaims.
From time to time, we are involved in other litigations and proceedings in the ordinary course of business. We are currently not involved in any other litigations and proceedings that we believe would have a material effect on our condensed consolidated financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.
Off-balance
sheet arrangements
As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022 we had no
off-balance
sheet arrangements that have had or are reasonably likely to have current or future effects on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that we consider material.
Employment agreements
In connection with our transformation into a pharmaceutical royalty company, the termination of our executive management team (except for Mr. Marlan Walker, our former General Counsel and current Chief Executive Officer) and all other employees was completed by December 30, 2022. Severance obligations for all employees other than executive officers were paid in full in the first quarter of 2023. As of September 30, 2023, we employ one full-time employee primarily engaged in an executive position. We have engaged external consultants who support our relationship with current partners and assist with certain financial, legal, and regulatory matters and the continued wind-down of our historical business operations. The separation of our former Interim
Co-Chief
Executive Officers, former Interim Chief Financial Officer and other executives from TherapeuticsMD was each a termination without “Good Cause,” as defined in their respective employment agreements. In the aggregate, as of September 30, 2023, we have accrued severance liabilities for executive termination obligations of $1.6 million.

Share-based payment compensation cost
Share-based payment compensation expense for PSUs is based on 100% vesting which was a part of the termination benefits for all employees who were terminated in 2022. We recorded share-based payment award compensation costs related to previously issued options, RSU and PSUs, as well as shares of common stock issued under our
employee stock purchase plan (“ESPP”)
totaling $0.2 million and $4.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022
,
respectively, and $1.2 million and $8.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022
,
respectively.
As of September 30, 2023, we had $0.4 million of unrecognized share-based payment award compensation cost related to unvested options, RSUs and PSUs as well as shares issuable under our ESPP, which may be adjusted for future changes in forfeitures and is included as additional
paid-in
capital in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. No tax benefit was realized due to a continued pattern of net losses.
The unrecognized compensation cost as of September 30, 2023 of $0.4 million is expected to be recognized as share-based payment award compensation over a weighted average period of 0.6 years.
9. Revenue
Pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement, the Company granted Mayne Pharma, on the Closing Date, (i) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to research, develop, register, manufacture, have manufactured, market, sell, use, and commercialize the Licensed Products in the United States and its possessions and territories and (ii) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to manufacture, have manufactured, import and have imported the Licensed Products outside the United States for commercialization in the United States and its possessions and territories.
Pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement, Mayne Pharma will make
one-time,
milestone payments to the Company of each of (i) $5.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $100.0 million, (ii) $10.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $200.0 million and (iii) $15.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $300.0 million. Further, Mayne Pharma will pay to the Company royalties on net sales of all Products in the United States at a royalty rate of 8.0% on the first $80 million in annual net sales and 7.5% on annual net sales above $80.0 million, subject to certain adjustments, for a period of 20 years following the Closing Date. The royalty rate will decrease to 2.0% on a
Product-by-Product
basis upon the earlier to occur of (i) the expiration or revocation of the last patent covering a Product and (ii) a generic version of a Product launching in the United States. Mayne Pharma will pay to the Company minimal annual royalties of $3.0 million per year for 12 years, adjusted for inflation at an annual rate of 3%, subject to certain further adjustments, including as described below.
 
16
Upon the expiry of the
20-year
royalty term, the licenses granted to Mayne Pharma under the Mayne License Agreement will become a fully
paid-up
and royalty free license for the Licensed Products.
We reported revenue of ($0.1) million in the third quarter of 2023 due to changes in estimates of revenue amounting to ($0.3) million subject to royalty due to TXMD by Mayne. Additionally, a portion of this adjustment is due to reallocations of revenue to other income (expense). On a quarterly basis, we reallocate royalty revenue proportionately between operating revenue for the amounts related to our licensed intellectual property and other income for royalties related to intellectual property we sold.
10.
In
come taxes
We do not expect to pay any significant federal or state income taxes as a result of (i) the losses recorded during the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, (ii) additional losses expected for the remainder of 2023 or losses recorded in 2022, or (iii) net operating losses carry forwards from prior years.
We recorded a full valuation allowance of the net operating losses for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022. Accordingly, there were no provisions for income taxes for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022. Additionally, as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we maintain a full valuation allowance for all deferred tax assets.
11. Income (Loss) per common share
The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted (loss) per common share (each adjusted to account for the Reverse Stock Split) for the periods presented (in thousands, except per share amounts):

Since we reported a net loss from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, our potentially dilutive securities are deemed to be anti-dilutive, accordingly, there was no effect of dilutive securities. Therefore, our basic and diluted loss per common share and our basic and diluted weighted average common shares are the same for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022.

12. Related parties
On August 23, 2022, we appointed Mr. Justin Roberts as a director to fill a newly created vacancy on our Board of Directors. Mr. Roberts was elected to serve as a director at our combined 2022 and 2023 Annual Meeting held on June 26, 2023. Mr. Roberts will serve until our next Annual Meeting of Stockholders or until his successor is duly elected or appointed or his earlier death or resignation. As a director of our Company, Mr. Roberts is entitled to receive compensation in the same manner as our other
non-employee
directors, described in the section entitled “Director Compensation” in our Amendment No. 1 to Form
10-K
for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2023, but he has elected not to receive any compensation for his service as a
non-employee
director at this time. Mr. Roberts currently serves as a Partner of Rubric. On July 29, 2022, September 30, 2022, October 28, 2022, and May 1, 2023, we entered into subscription agreements with Rubric. On December 30, 2022, in accordance with the terms of the Certificate of Designation, we redeemed all 29,000 outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock previously issued to affiliates of Rubric at a purchase price of $1,333 per share. also paid certain affiliates of Rubric approximately $3.0 million as a make-whole payment pursuant to the subscription agreements previously entered into between us and Rubric. On June 29, 2023, we issued and sold 312,525 shares of Common Stock to Rubric at a price per share equal to $3.6797 pursuant to the Subscription Agreement and received gross proceeds of $1.15 million, before expenses.
13. Business concentrations
TherapeuticsMD was previously a women’s healthcare company with a mission of creating and commercializing innovative products to support the lifespan of women from pregnancy prevention through menopause. In December 2022, we changed our business to become a pharmaceutical royalty company, currently receiving royalties on products licensed to pharmaceutical organizations that possess commercial capabilities in the relevant territories. As part of the transformation that included the Mayne License Agreement, historical results of commercial operations for all periods prior to the Closing Date have been reflected as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated financial statements. Assets and liabilities associated with the commercial business are classified as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Additional disclosures regarding discontinued operations are provided in Note 2.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, 100% of license revenue related to Mayne Pharma and Theramex.
As of September 30, 2023, we had a royalty receivable of $2.7 million relating to the short-term portion of receivable from Mayne Pharma and Theramex and $19.1 million relating to the long-term portion of royalty receivable which includes royalties recognized from the minimum annual royalty that Mayne Pharma is obligated to pay to us under the Mayne License
Agreement.
14. Subsequent events
On November 10, 2023, we delivered a drawdown notice (the “Notice”) to Rubric under the terms of the Subscription Agreement. Pursuant to the Notice, we agreed to sell 877,192 shares of Common Stock to Rubric at a price per share of $2.28, for total gross proceeds of approximately $2.0 million. The settlement of the transaction is expected to occur on the third trading day following the delivery of the Notice in accordance with the terms of the Subscription Agreement.

Our company

TherapeuticsMD was previously a women’s healthcare company with a mission of creating and commercializing innovative products to support the lifespan of women from pregnancy prevention through menopause.

In December 2022, we changed our business to become a pharmaceutical royalty company, primarily collecting royalties from our licensees. We are no longer engaged in research and development or commercial operations. On December 30, 2022 (the “Closing Date”), we completed a transaction (the “Mayne Transaction”) with Mayne Pharma LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Mayne Pharma”) and subsidiary of Mayne Pharma Group Limited, an Australian public company, pursuant to which we (i) granted Mayne Pharma an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY, BIJUVA and prescription prenatal vitamin products sold under the BocaGreenMD and vitaMedMD brands (collectively, the “Licensed Products”) in the United States and its possessions and territories, (ii) assigned to Mayne Pharma our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA (together with the Licensed Products, collectively, the “Products”) in the United States and its possessions and territories, and (iii) sold certain other assets to Mayne Pharma in connection therewith.

Pursuant to a License Agreement, dated December 4, 2022, between TherapeuticsMD and Mayne Pharma (the “Mayne License Agreement”), we granted Mayne Pharma, on the Closing Date, (i) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to research, develop, register, manufacture, have manufactured, market, sell, use, and commercialize the Licensed Products in the United States and its possessions and territories and (ii) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to manufacture, have manufactured, import and have imported the Licensed Products outside the United States for commercialization in the United States and its possessions and territories.

Pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement, Mayne Pharma will pay us one-time, milestone payments of each of (i) $5.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $100.0 million, (ii) $10.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $200.0 million and (iii) $15.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $300.0 million. Further, Mayne Pharma will pay us royalties on net sales of all Products in the United States at a royalty rate of 8.0% on the first $80 million in annual net sales and 7.5% on annual net sales above $80.0 million, subject to certain adjustments, for a period of 20 years following the Closing Date. The royalty rate will decrease to 2.0% on a Product-by-Product basis upon the earlier to occur of (i) the expiration or revocation of the last patent covering a Product and (ii) a generic version of a Product launching in the United States. Mayne Pharma will pay us minimum annual royalties of $3.0 million per year for 12 years, adjusted for inflation at an annual rate of 3%, subject to certain further adjustments, including as described below (the “Minimum Annual Royalty”). Upon the expiry of the 20-year royalty term, the licenses granted to Mayne Pharma under the Mayne License Agreement will become a fully paid-up and royalty free license for the Licensed Products.

Pursuant to a Transaction Agreement, dated December 4, 2022, between TherapeuticsMD and Mayne Pharma (the “Transaction Agreement”), we sold to Mayne Pharma, at closing, certain assets for Mayne Pharma to commercialize the Products in the United States, including our exclusive license from the Population Council to commercialize ANNOVERA (the “Transferred Assets”).

The total consideration from Mayne Pharma to us for the purchase of the Transferred Assets and the grant of the licenses under the Mayne License Agreement was (i) a cash payment of $140.0 million at closing, (ii) a cash payment of approximately $12.1 million at closing for the acquisition of net working capital as determined in accordance with the Transaction Agreement and subject to certain adjustments, (iii) a cash payment of approximately $1.0 million at closing for prepaid royalties in connection with the Mayne License Agreement Amendment (as defined below) and (iv) the right to receive the contingent consideration set forth in the Mayne License Agreement, as amended.

On the Closing Date, TherapeuticsMD and Mayne Pharma entered into Amendment No. 1 to the Mayne License Agreement (the “Mayne License Agreement Amendment”). Pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement Amendment, Mayne Pharma agreed to pay us approximately $1.0 million in prepaid royalties on the Closing Date. The prepaid royalties will reduce the first four quarterly payments that would have otherwise been received pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement by an amount equal to $257 thousand per quarterly royalty payment plus interest calculated at 19% per annum accruing from the Closing Date until the date such quarterly royalty payment is paid to TherapeuticsMD. In addition, under the Mayne License Agreement Amendment, we owed Mayne Pharma $1.5 million payable from one royalty payment. During the second quarter of 2023, Mayne Pharma held back our royalty payment and we funded an additional $0.9 million in August 2023 to settle the original $1.5 million payable.

This action represented a shift in our business and therefore, the related assets and liabilities associated with commercial operations are classified as discontinued operations on our condensed consolidated balance sheets and the results of operations have been presented as discontinued operations within our condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income for all periods presented. See Note 2 - Discontinued Operations to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for further details.

We also have license agreements with strategic partners to commercialize IMVEXXY and BIJUVA outside of the U.S.

 

   

In July 2018, we entered into a license and supply agreement (the “Knight License Agreement”) with Knight Therapeutics Inc. (“Knight”) pursuant to which we granted Knight an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY and BIJUVA in Canada and Israel.

Table of Contents
   

In September 2019, we entered into an exclusive license and supply agreement (the “Theramex License Agreement”) with Theramex HQ UK Limited (“Theramex”) to commercialize IMVEXXY and BIJUVA outside of the U.S., excluding Canada and Israel. In 2021, Theramex secured regulatory approval for BIJUVA in certain European countries and began commercialization efforts in those countries.

In connection with our transformation into a pharmaceutical royalty company, the termination of our executive management team (except for Mr. Marlan Walker, our former General Counsel and current Chief Executive Officer) and all other employees was completed by December 31, 2022. Severance obligations for all employees other than executive officers were paid in full in the first quarter of 2023 and severance obligations for terminated executive officers will be paid in accordance with their employment agreements and separation agreements as previously disclosed. As of December 31, 2022 and September 30, 2023, we employed one full-time employee primarily engaged in an executive position. We have engaged external consultants, including certain former members of our management team, who support our relationship with current partners and assist with certain financial, legal and regulatory matters and the continued wind-down of our historical business operations.

vitaCare Divestiture

On April 14, 2022, we completed the divestiture of vitaCare Prescription Services, Inc. (“vitaCare”) with the sale of all vitaCare’s issued and outstanding capital stock (the “vitaCare Divestiture”). We received net proceeds of $142.6 million, net of transaction costs of $7.2 million, and we recognized a gain on sale of business of $143.4 million. Included in the net proceeds amount was $11.3 million of customary holdbacks as provided in the stock purchase agreement between us and GoodRx, Inc. (the “Purchase Agreement”), which was recorded as restricted cash in the condensed consolidated balance sheets until the cash was released to us. The restricted cash was held by an escrow agent and was released to us in March 2023. Additionally, we may receive up to an additional $7.0 million in earn-out consideration, contingent upon vitaCare’s financial performance through 2023 as determined in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement, however we do not believe this earnout will be realized. We will record the contingent consideration at the settlement amount when the consideration is realized or realizable.

The Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, covenants, and indemnities of the parties thereto. Our commitments under a long-term services agreement related to vitaCare were transferred to Mayne Pharma as part of the Mayne Transaction. In addition, under the Mayne License Agreement Amendment, we owed Mayne Pharma $1.5 million payable from one royalty payment. During the second quarter of 2023, Mayne Pharma held back our royalty payment and we funded an additional $0.9 million in August 2023 to settle the original $1.5 million payable.

The pre-divesture operations of vitaCare were reclassified to discontinued operations in December 2022 when we transitioned to becoming a royalty company and licensed our products to Mayne Pharma.

COVID-19

With multiple variant strains of the SARS-Cov-2 virus and the COVID-19 disease that it causes (collectively, “COVID-19”) still circulating, we continue to be subject to risks and uncertainties in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. The extent of the future impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business continues to be highly uncertain and difficult to predict.

As of the date of the filing of this 10-Q Report, the future extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic may continue to materially impact our financial condition, liquidity, or results of operations remains uncertain and difficult to predict. Even after the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided, we may continue to experience adverse impacts to our business as a result of any economic recession or depression that has occurred or may occur in the future.

Going concern

On December 4, 2022, we entered into agreements with Mayne Pharma pursuant to which we (i) granted Mayne Pharma an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY, BIJUVA, and prescription prenatal vitamin products (in the United States and its possessions and territories), (ii) assigned to Mayne Pharma our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA in the United States and its possessions and territories, and (iii) sold certain other assets to Mayne Pharma.

Table of Contents

The total consideration we received from Mayne Pharma for the purchase of the Transferred Assets and the grant of the licenses under the Mayne License Agreement consisted of (i) a cash payment of $140.0 million at closing, (ii) a cash payment of approximately $12.1 million at closing for the acquisition of net working capital subject to certain adjustments, (iii) a cash payment of approximately $1.0 million at closing for prepaid royalties in connection with the Mayne License Agreement Amendment and (iv) the right to receive the contingent consideration set forth in the Mayne License Agreement, as amended.

On the Closing Date, we repaid all obligations under the Financing Agreement, dated as of April 24, 2019, as amended, with Sixth Street Specialty Lending, Inc., as administrative agent, the various lenders from time-to-time party thereto, and certain of our subsidiaries party thereto from time to time as guarantors (the “Financing Agreement”) and the Financing Agreement was terminated.

Following the transaction with Mayne Pharma, we changed our business to become a royalty company, currently receiving royalties on products licensed to pharmaceutical organizations that possess commercial capabilities in the relevant territories. We may need to raise additional capital to provide additional liquidity to fund our operations until we become cash flow positive. To address our capital needs, we are pursuing various equity and debt financing and other alternatives. The equity financing alternatives may include the private placement of equity, equity-linked, or other similar instruments or obligations with one or more investors, lenders, or other institutional counterparties or an underwritten public equity or equity-linked securities offering.

Our ability to sell equity securities may be limited by market conditions, including the market price of our common stock and our available authorized shares.

To the extent that we raise additional capital through the sale of such securities, the ownership interests of our existing stockholders will be diluted, and the terms of these new securities may include liquidation or other preferences that adversely affect the rights of our existing stockholders. If we are not successful in obtaining additional financing, we could be forced to discontinue or curtail our business operations, sell assets at unfavorable prices, or merge, consolidate, or combine with a company with greater financial resources in a transaction that might be unfavorable to us.

On May 1, 2023, we entered into a Subscription Agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with Rubric Capital Management LP (“Rubric”), pursuant to which we agreed to sell to Rubric, or one or more of its affiliates, up to an aggregate of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock, par value $0.001 per share (our “Common Stock”), from time to time during the term of the Subscription Agreement in separate draw-downs at the election of the Company. On June 29, 2023, we issued and sold 312,525 shares of Common Stock at a price per share equal to $3.6797 pursuant to the Subscription Agreement. We received gross proceeds of $1.15 million from the draw down, before expenses. The Common Stock issued pursuant to the Subscription Agreement was sold and issued without registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in reliance on the exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as transactions not involving a public offering and Rule 5-06 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act as sales to accredited investors, and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws.

If Mayne Pharma’s sales of IMVEXXY, BIJUVA, or ANNOVERA are delayed, if the net working capital settlement with Mayne Pharma under the Transaction Agreement is greater than our current estimates if we are unsuccessful with future financings or if the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on us or the third parties we rely on is worse than we anticipate, our existing cash reserves may be insufficient to satisfy our liquidity requirements. The potential impact of these factors in conjunction with the uncertainty of the capital markets raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern for the next twelve months from the issuance of these financial statements.

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if we are unable to continue as a going concern.

Portfolio of our royalty-bearing products

In December 2022, we changed our business to become a pharmaceutical royalty company, currently receiving royalties on products licensed to pharmaceutical organizations that possess commercial capabilities in the relevant territories. On December 30, 2022, we granted an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY, BIJUVA, and prescription prenatal vitamin products sold under the BocaGreenMD and vitaMedMD brands and assigning our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA to Mayne Pharma.

IMVEXXY (estradiol vaginal inserts), 4-µg and 10-µg

This pharmaceutical product is for the treatment of moderate-to-severe dyspareunia (vaginal pain associated with sexual activity), a symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy due to menopause. As part of the FDA’s approval of IMVEXXY, we committed to conduct a post-approval observational study to evaluate the risk of endometrial cancer in post-menopausal women with a uterus who use a low-dose vaginal estrogen unopposed by a progestogen.

On December 30, 2022, we granted an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY in the United States and its possessions and territories to Mayne Pharma. We also have entered into licensing agreements with third parties to market and sell IMVEXXY outside of the U.S. We entered into the Knight License Agreement, with Knight pursuant to which, we granted Knight an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY in Canada and Israel. We entered into the Theramex License Agreement with Theramex HQ UK Limited (“Theramex”) pursuant to which we granted Theramex an exclusive license to commercialize IMVEXXY for human use outside of the U.S., except for Canada and Israel. As of September 30, 2023, no IMVEXXY sales had been made through the Theramex and Knight licensing agreements.

The FDA has also asked the sponsors of other vaginal estrogen products to participate in the observational study. In connection with the observational study, we would have been required to provide progress reports to the FDA on an annual basis. The obligation to conduct this study was transferred to Mayne Pharma as part of the Mayne License Agreement.

BIJUVA (estradiol and progesterone) capsules, 1 mg/100 mg

This pharmaceutical product is the first and only FDA approved bioidentical hormone therapy combination of estradiol and progesterone in a single, oral capsule for the treatment of moderate-to-severe vasomotor symptoms (commonly known as hot flashes or flushes) due to menopause in women with a uterus.

On December 30, 2022, we granted an exclusive license to commercialize BIJUVA in the United States and its possessions and territories to Mayne Pharma. We also have entered into the Knight License Agreement with Knight pursuant to which we granted Knight an exclusive license to commercialize BIJUVA in Canada and Israel. We have entered into the Theramex License Agreement with Theramex pursuant to which we granted Theramex an exclusive license to commercialize BIJUVA for human use outside of the U.S., except for Canada and Israel.

ANNOVERA (segesterone acetate (“SA”) and ethinyl estradiol (“EE”) vaginal system)

On December 30, 2022, we assigned our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA to Mayne Pharma. This pharmaceutical product is a one-year ring-shaped contraceptive vaginal system (“CVS”) and the first and only patient-controlled, procedure-free, reversible prescription contraceptive that can prevent pregnancy for up to a total of 13 cycles (one year). ANNOVERA is commercially sold in the U.S. pursuant to the terms of the Population Council License Agreement. As part of the approval of ANNOVERA, the FDA has required a post-approval observational study be performed to measure the risk of venous thromboembolism. We agreed to perform and pay the costs and expenses associated with this post-approval study, provided that if the costs and expenses associated with such post-approval study exceed $20.0 million, half of such excess will offset against royalties or other payments owed by us under the Population Council License Agreement. In August 2021, we filed a supplemental New Drug Application (“NDA”) with the FDA to modify the testing specifications for ANNOVERA to allow increased consistency of supply of ANNOVERA. In May 2022, the FDA approved the supplemental NDA for ANNOVERA. Our obligations to perform the post-approval study have been transferred to Mayne Pharma as part of the Mayne License Agreement.

Prenatal vitamin products

On December 30, 2022, we granted an exclusive license to commercialize, in the United States and its possessions and territories, our prescription prenatal vitamin product lines under our vitaMedMD brand name and authorized generic formulations of some of our prescription prenatal vitamin products under our BocaGreenMD Prenatal name to Mayne Pharma.

Results of operations

Three months ended September 30, 2023 compared with three months ended September 30, 2022

In December 2022, we granted an exclusive license to commercialize our IMVEXXY, BIJUVA, and prescription prenatal vitamin products and assigned our exclusive license to commercialize ANNOVERA to Mayne Pharma, which resulted in a business shift that had a major effect on our operations and financial results.

As part of the transformation that included the Mayne License Agreement, historical results of commercial operations have been reflected as discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods prior to the Closing Date. Assets and liabilities associated with the commercial business are classified as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Additional disclosures regarding discontinued operations are provided in Note 2 to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report.

Revenue. As part of our transformation and the Mayne License Agreement, historical results of commercial operations have been reflected as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.

License and service revenue. We recorded $(0.1) million in license revenue for the third quarter of 2023, primarily from the Mayne License Agreement, offset by adjustments described below in the third quarter of 2023, compared to $0.4 million in sales to another licensee for the third quarter of 2022.

We report royalty revenue in excess of the contractual minimums each quarter totaling approximately $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2023. Royalties reported as license revenue for intellectual property licensed by us totaled approximately $(0.1) million and royalties reported as other income for intellectual property we sold totaled approximately $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2023.

We are reporting license revenue of ($0.1) million in the third quarter of 2023 due to product sales adjustments reported by our licensed partners amounting to ($0.2) million. Additionally, a portion of this adjustment is due to reallocations of license revenue to other income (expense). On a quarterly basis, we reallocate royalty revenue proportionately between operating revenue for the amounts related to our licensed intellectual property and other income for royalties related to intellectual property we sold.

Operating expenses. Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2023 were $1.7 million, a decrease of $12.8 million, or 88.2%, compared to the third quarter of 2022. This decrease was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business with limited infrastructure.

Selling, general and administrative. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of $12.7 million, or 88.8%, compared to the third quarter of 2022. This decrease was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business.

Depreciation & amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense was $0.1 million for the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of $0.1 million, or 52.4%, compared to the third quarter of 2022. This decrease was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business.

Loss from operations. In the third quarter of 2023, we had a loss from operations of $1.8 million, as compared to a loss from operations of $14.5 million for the third quarter of 2022. This change was primarily due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business and the associated decrease in expenses.

Other income (expense), net. During the third quarter of 2023, we had other income of $0.3 million compared to other expense of $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2022. This change was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business. Royalties reported as other income for intellectual property we sold totaled approximately $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2023.

Provision for income taxes. During the third quarter of 2023 and 2022, we recorded no provision for income taxes for continuing operations.

Net loss from continuing operations. For the third quarter of 2023, we had a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.13 per basic and diluted common share, compared to a loss of $14.6 million, or $1.58 per basic and diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2022.

Discontinued Operations - Revenues from discontinued operations were $(0.8) million for the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of $21.4 million as compared to the third quarter of 2022. Operating expenses from discontinued operations were $0.0 million in the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of $23.4 million, as compared to the third quarter of 2022. Net income (loss) from discontinued operations for the third quarter of 2023 was $1.9 million, a decrease of $12.4 million as compared to the third quarter of 2022.

Revenue. As part of our transformation and the Mayne License Agreement, historical results of commercial operations have been reflected as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.

License and service revenue. We recorded $0.8 million in license revenue for the first nine months of 2023, primarily from the Mayne License Agreement partially offset by adjustments described below, compared to $1.4 million in sales to another licensee during the first nine months of 2022.

We report royalty revenue in excess of the contractual minimums each quarter totaling approximately $1.0 million year-to-date. Royalties reported as license revenue for intellectual property licensed by us totaled approximately $0.5 million and royalties reported as other income for intellectual property we sold totaled approximately $0.5 million year-to-date. On a quarterly basis, we reallocate royalty revenue proportionately between operating revenue for the amounts related to our licensed intellectual property and other income for royalties related to intellectual property we sold.

Operating expenses. Total operating expenses for the first nine months of 2023 were $7.7 million, a decrease of $39.5 million, or 83.7%, compared to the first nine months of 2022. This decrease was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business with limited infrastructure.

Table of Contents

Selling, general and administrative. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $7.4 million for the first nine months of 2023, a decrease of $38.9 million, or 84.0%, compared to the first nine months of 2022. This decrease was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business.

Depreciation & amortization. Depreciation and amortization expenses were $0.3 million for the first nine months of 2023, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 67.8%, compared to the first nine months of 2022. This decrease was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business.

Loss from operations. For the first nine months of 2023, we had a loss from operations of $6.9 million, as compared to a loss from operations of $47.3 million, for the first nine months of 2022. This change was primarily due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business and the associated decrease in expenses.

Other income (expense), net. During the first nine months of 2023 we had other income of $0.8 million as compared to a other expense of $0.1 million during the first nine months of 2022. This increase was due to the transition of our business from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business. Other income represents interest income from banks accounts as well the present value of the minimum royalty receivables recorded compared to actual minimum royalties received and other miscellaneous items.

Provision for income taxes. During the first nine months of 2023 and 2022, we recorded no provision for income taxes for continuing operations.

Net loss from continuing operations. For the first nine months of 2023, we had a net loss of $6.2 million, or $0.60 per basic and diluted common share, compared to a loss of $47.4 million, or $5.34 per basic and diluted common share, for the first nine months of 2022.

Discontinued Operations - Revenues from discontinued operations were $(0.8) million for the first nine months of 2023, a decrease of $68.2 million as compared to the first nine months of 2022. Operating expenses from discontinued operations were $0.3 million for the first nine months of 2023, a decrease of $73.7 million, as compared to the first nine months of 2022. Net loss from discontinued operations for the first nine months of 2023 was $3.2 million, a decrease of $84.9 million as compared to the first nine months of 2022.

For additional information, see Note 2 - Discontinued Operations, in the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report.

Liquidity and capital resources

Our primary use of cash is to fund our continued operations. We have funded our operations primarily through public offerings of our common stock and private placements of equity and debt securities, the divestiture of our former subsidiary vitaCare, and the transactions with Mayne Pharma. As of September 30, 2023, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $10.2 million. We maintain cash at financial institutions that at times may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insured limits of $0.25 million per bank. We have never experienced any losses related to these funds.

vitaCare Divestiture

On April 14, 2022, we completed the vitaCare Divestiture. We may receive up to an additional $7.0 million in earn-out consideration, contingent upon vitaCare’s financial performance through 2023 as determined in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement, however we do not believe this earnout will be realized. We utilized $120.0 million of net proceeds from the vitaCare Divestiture to make a prepayment of the loans under the Financing Agreement.

Mayne Pharma License Agreement

On December 30, 2022, we granted Mayne Pharma (i) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to research, develop, register, manufacture, have manufactured, market, sell, use, and commercialize the Licensed Products in the United States and its possessions and territories and (ii) an exclusive, sublicensable, perpetual, irrevocable license to manufacture, have manufactured, import and have imported the Licensed Products outside the United States for commercialization in the United States and its possessions and territories. The total consideration from Mayne Pharma to us under the Mayne License Agreement consisted of (i) a cash payment of $140.0 million at closing, (ii) a cash payment of approximately $12.1 million at closing for the acquisition of net working capital as determined in accordance with the transaction agreement dated December 4, 2022, and subject to certain adjustments, (iii) a cash payment of approximately $1.0 million at closing for prepaid royalties in connection with the Mayne License Agreement Amendment and (iv) the right to receive the contingent consideration set forth in the Mayne License Agreement, as amended.

Pursuant to the Mayne License Agreement, Mayne Pharma will pay us one-time, milestone payments of each of (i) $5.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $100.0 million, (ii) $10.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $200.0 million and (iii) $15.0 million if aggregate net sales of all Products in the United States during a calendar year reach $300.0 million. Further, Mayne Pharma will pay us royalties on net sales of all Products in the United States at a royalty rate of 8.0% on the first $80 million in annual net sales and 7.5% on annual net sales above $80.0 million, subject to certain adjustments, for a period of 20 years following the Closing Date. The royalty rate will decrease to 2.0% on a Product-by-Product basis upon the earlier to occur of (i) the expiration or revocation of the last patent covering a Product and (ii) a generic version of a Product launching in the United States. Mayne Pharma will pay us minimal annual royalties of $3.0 million per year for 12 years, adjusted for inflation at an annual rate of 3%, subject to certain further adjustments, including as described below. Upon the expiry of the 20-year royalty term, the licenses granted to Mayne Pharma under the Mayne License Agreement will become a fully paid-up and royalty free license for the Licensed Products.

During the three months ended September 30, 2023, we revised certain estimates pertaining to contracts we were a party to when we were an operating company. These included an incremental accrual of approximately $2 million for net working capital adjustments related to the Transaction Agreement.

Subscription Agreement with Rubric Capital Management LP

On May 1, 2023, we entered into the Subscription Agreement with Rubric, pursuant to which we agreed to sell to Rubric, or one or more of its affiliates, up to an aggregate of 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock, from time to time during the term of the Subscription Agreement in separate draw downs at our election, at a purchase price of the five-day volume-weighted average price of our common stock at the time of the sale of such shares, at an aggregate purchase price of up to $5,000,000 (collectively, the “Private Placement”).

The initial draw down occurred on June 29, 2023 consisting of a sale of 312,525 shares of Common Stock at a price per share equal to $3.6797. We received gross proceeds of $1.15 million from the drawdown, before expenses.

See “Going Concern” above for further discussion related to our ability to generate and obtain adequate amounts of cash to meet our liquidity needs and our plans for to satisfy our such needs in the short-term and in the long-term.

Operating Activities from continuing operations. For the first nine months of 2023, net cash used in operating activities was $18.1 million, compared to net cash used in operating activities of $20.9 million for the first nine months of 2022. This decrease of $2.8 million or 13.2%, was primarily due to a $41.2 million decrease in our net loss from continuing operations following our transition from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business, offset by a $38.5 million decrease in non-cash expenses as compared to the first nine months of 2022.

Investing Activities from continuing operations. Net cash used in investing activities for the first nine months of 2023 was $0.0 million, compared to net cash used in investing activities of $0.3 million for the first nine months of 2022. This change was due our transition from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business.

Financing Activities from continuing operations. For the first nine months of 2023, net cash received from financing activities was $1.2 million, compared to net cash used by financing activities of $123.3 million for the first nine months of 2022, reflecting the sale of common stock during the first nine months of 2023 and the payments of outstanding long-term debt during the first nine months of 2022.

Net cash used in discontinued operations. Net cash used in operating activities from discontinued operations for the first nine months of 2023 was $22.2 million as compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $117.6 million for first nine months of 2022. This change relates primarily to expenses incurred and the payment of current liabilities associated with our transition from a manufacturing and commercialization business to a royalty-based business. Net cash provided by investing activities from discontinued operations was $0.0 million for the first nine months of 2023 and $0.1 million for the first nine months of 2022. Net cash provided by financing activities from discontinued operations was $0.0 million for the first nine months of 2023 and 2022.

For additional details, see the condensed consolidated statements of cash flows in Item 1, Financial Statements, appearing elsewhere in this 10-Q Report.

Receivable from Mayne. On December 30, 2022, Mayne Pharma acquired our accounts receivable balance of approximately $29.3 million which is subject to certain working capital adjustments. As of September 30, 2023, we had a royalty receivable of $2.7 million relating to the short-term portion of receivable from Mayne Pharma and $19.1 million relating to the long-term portion of royalty receivable which includes royalties recognized from the Minimum Annual Royalty. See Note 1 Business, basis of presentation, new accounting standards and summary of significant accounting policies (Revenue Recognition) to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report.

Inventory. On December 30, 2022, Mayne Pharma acquired our inventory balance of approximately $6.6 million, which is subject to certain net working capital adjustments.

Contractual obligations, off-balance sheet arrangements and purchase commitments and employment agreements

Our contractual obligations and off-balance sheet arrangements are set forth below. For additional information on any of the following and other obligations and arrangements, see “Note 7. Commitments and Contingencies” to the condensed consolidated financial statements included in this 10-Q Report.

In the ordinary course of business, we enter into agreements with third parties that include indemnification provisions, which, in our judgment, are normal and customary for companies in our industry sector. Pursuant to these agreements, we generally agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and reimburse indemnified parties for losses suffered or omitted by us. The maximum potential amount of future payments we could be required to make under these indemnification provisions is sometimes unlimited. We have not incurred material costs to defend lawsuits or settle claims related to these indemnification provisions. As a result, the estimated fair value of liabilities relating to these provisions is minimal. Accordingly, we had no liabilities recorded for these provisions as of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022.

Table of Contents

In the normal course of business, we may be confronted with issues or events that may result in contingent liability. These generally relate to lawsuits, claims, environmental actions, or the actions of various regulatory agencies. We consult with counsel and other appropriate experts to assess the claim. If, in our opinion, we have incurred a probable loss as set forth by U.S. GAAP, an estimate is made of the loss and the appropriate accounting entries are reflected in our financial statements.

Critical accounting policies and estimates

Management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this 10-Q Report, which has been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts on our condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes as of the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements. The critical accounting policies and estimates used are disclosed in Item 7 - Critical accounting policies and estimates in our 2022 10-K Report.

Item 3. Quantitative and qualitative disclosures about market risk

As a “smaller reporting company,” as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and pursuant to Instruction 6 to Item 201(e) of Regulation S-K, we are not required to provide this information.

Disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time period specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, in order to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Our Chief Executive Officer evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this 10-Q Report. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this 10-Q Report were effective in providing reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Our Chief Executive Officer does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues, misstatements, errors, and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been or will be prevented or detected. Further, internal controls may become inadequate as a result of changes in conditions, or through the deterioration of the degree of compliance with policies or procedures.

Changes in internal controls over financial reporting

In connection with our transformation into a pharmaceutical royalty company, we terminated our executive management team and all other employees. As of September 30, 2023, we employed one full-time employee primarily engaged in an executive position. We have engaged external consultants who support our relationship with current partners and assist with certain financial, legal and regulatory matters and the continued wind-down of our historical commercial business operations. As a result of these changes, we have updated our risk assessment and design of internal controls over financial reporting that align with reduced transaction volume and reliance on external consultants to manage the day-to-day operations of the Company. The Company is and will continue to evaluate changes to processes, information technology systems and other components of internal controls over financial reporting as part of its ongoing business transformation activities, and as a result, controls may be periodically changed. The Company believes, however, that it will be able to maintain sufficient controls over its financial reporting throughout this transformation process.

Part II - Other Information

Item 1. Legal proceedings

From time to time, we are involved in litigation and proceedings in the ordinary course of our business. Other than the legal proceedings disclosed in Note 7, Commitments and contingencies in Part I, Item 1, Financial Statements, appearing elsewhere in this 10-Q Report, we are not involved in any legal proceeding that we believe would have a material effect on our business or financial condition.

Our business, financial condition and operating results can be affected by a number of factors, whether currently known or unknown, including but not limited to those described in Part I, Item 1A of the 2022 10-K Report under the heading “Risk Factors,” any one or more of which could, directly or indirectly, cause our actual financial condition and operating results to vary materially from past, or from anticipated future, financial condition and operating results. Any of these factors, in whole or in part, could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and stock price. There have been no material changes to our risk factors since the 2022 10-K Report.

None.

Item 3. Defaults upon senior securities

The settlement of the transaction is expected to occur on the third trading day following the delivery of the Notice in accordance with the terms of the Subscription Agreement.

The Common Stock issued pursuant to the Subscription Agreement will be sold and issued without registration under the Securities Act, in reliance on the exemptions provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as transactions not involving a public offering and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act as sales to accredited investors, and in reliance on similar exemptions under applicable state laws.

2.2 Performance Efforts. TherapeuticsMD hereby engages Company, and Company hereby accepts TherapeuticsMD’s engagement, to perform in a diligent and timely manner all of the tasks and render such advice and services as is contemplated under this Agreement and in each SOW in accordance with the terms thereof. Company also will satisfactorily and timely perform the Services or provision of the Deliverables in accordance with the Agreement, the SOW, the requests, or instructions from TherapeuticsMD as determined by TherapeuticsMD in its sole discretion. Company represents and warrants that it will perform the Services in accordance with, and Company and Company Personnel will comply with, all Applicable Laws. In addition to the specifications in an SOW, TherapeuticsMD may provide further instructions or requirements to Company from time to time in writing, whether via email or otherwise. Such instructions or requirements will be deemed accepted by Company unless Company objects in writing within 10 days of the date TherapeuticsMD provides such instruction or requirement, provided that Company may only object if the instructions or requirements materially change the scope of an SOW or cause Company to incur additional costs not reasonably contemplated by such SOW. Any related service that the Parties agree are outside the scope of the Services to be performed or Deliverables to be provided under a particular SOW may be added thereto or become the subject of a separate SOW.

2.3 Non-conforming Services or Deliverables. Following receipt of any Deliverable by TherapeuticsMD or performance of any Services for TherapeuticsMD pursuant to an SOW, if TherapeuticsMD determines in its reasonable discretion that any Deliverable or Service does not conform to the specifications agreed upon in the SOW or otherwise, or in the event any timelines or milestones to be met by the performance of Services have not been fully achieved by the date established, Company will, at no additional cost to TherapeuticsMD and at TherapeuticsMD’s option, (a) replace with a conforming Deliverable; or (b) repeat that portion of the Services that is defective until such time as the results have been deemed valid by TherapeuticsMD.

2.4 Appointment of Project Director. Company will appoint a project director to be responsible for each executed SOW.

Substitution of the project director or substantial changes in his/her level of effort will not be made by Company without the prior written approval of TherapeuticsMD, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.

Company may utilize third parties to provide any part of the Services or Work Product only with the prior written approval of TherapeuticsMD, provided that the foregoing will not apply to vendors of generally available goods and services. If TherapeuticsMD approves a Subcontractor, then Company will enter a written agreement with such Subcontractor that enables Company to comply with its obligations under this Agreement. Any such Subcontract will also identify TherapeuticsMD as an intended third party beneficiary of such contract. Upon request, Company will promptly provide TherapeuticsMD with a fully-executed unredacted copy of each such Subcontract. Company will oversee all Services performed by any Subcontractor, and will be responsible for such Services as if such Services were performed by Company under this Agreement. If any Subcontractor materially breaches such Subcontract or this Agreement, Company will: (a) notify TherapeuticsMD of such breach as soon as possible, but in no event later than three (3) business days after Company becomes aware of such breach, and include in such notice all information then in Company’s possession or control related to such breach; (b) use best efforts to enforce the Subcontract, including seeking immediate injunctive relief in the case of any breach of such Subcontractor’s confidentiality obligations; and (c) cooperate with TherapeuticsMD fully if TherapeuticsMD elects to pursue legal action directly against such Subcontractor. Company will maintain an appropriate system of auditing all of its Subcontractors, and will ensure that all Subcontracts will provide that TherapeuticsMD may accompany the Company during its conduct of any Subcontractor audits. Company will notify TherapeuticsMD, thirty (30) days in advance of any Subcontractor audit, and will allow TherapeuticsMD to be present during such audit.

2.6 Material Modification of Services or Deliverables. TherapeuticsMD may in its sole discretion, cancel or terminate any portion of any SOW upon written notice to Company. In the event TherapeuticsMD otherwise wishes to modify the Services or Deliverables in any manner that would materially change the scope or the fees under an SOW, the Parties will discuss such modification in good faith and, once agreed upon, the Parties will execute a written amendment to such SOW or execute a new SOW. Company will not implement any changes or additional Services until both Parties have signed the amended SOW. If TherapeuticsMD wishes to modify the Services or Deliverables, and the Parties are unable to agree on the specific terms for the amendment to the SOW, then no changes to the existing subject SOW will be made.

To the extent that TherapeuticsMD withholds any taxes or levies on payments to Company, Company agrees that TherapeuticsMD will not be obligated to gross-up any such amounts and Company waives any right to payment from TherapeuticsMD with respect to the withheld amounts. However, if TherapeuticsMD receives a refund of any taxes or levies withheld from amounts payable to Company under this Agreement, TherapeuticsMD will pay to Company an amount equal to such refund, net of all out-of-pocket expenses and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant governmental authority with respect to such refund), provided that Company upon request of TherapeuticsMD, agrees to repay the amount paid over to Company (plus any penalties, interest, or other charges imposed by the relevant governmental authority) by TherapeuticsMD, if TherapeuticsMD is required to repay such refund to such governmental authority.

If any IRS Form expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, the Party that provided such form will promptly (and in any event within 30 days after such expiration, obsolescence, or inaccuracy) notify the other Party in writing of such expiration, obsolescence, or inaccuracy and update the IRS Form if it is legally eligible to do so.

7.4 Reimbursement for Taxes Paid. In the event that any taxes or levies are assessed against TherapeuticsMD with respect to payments made to Company under this Agreement, such taxes or levies (plus any penalties, interest, or other charges imposed by the relevant governmental authority not related to any delinquency by TherapeuticsMD) will be paid by Company. Should TherapeuticsMD have to pay such taxes or levies Company will promptly reimburse TherapeuticsMD in full for any taxes or levies (plus any penalties, interest, or other charges imposed by the relevant governmental authority not related to any delinquency by TherapeuticsMD) so paid by TherapeuticsMD upon receipt of a copy of the assessment. Alternatively, TherapeuticsMD may reduce the amount of future payments to Company under this Agreement so as to recover in full any such taxes or levies (plus any penalties, interest, or other charges imposed by the relevant governmental authority not related to any delinquency by TherapeuticsMD) so paid by TherapeuticsMD.

8.5 Remedies Not Exclusive. Except as otherwise provided herein, no remedy conferred by any of the specific provisions of this Agreement is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy, including, by way of example and not by way of limitation, those remedies for contract or tortuous actions. The Parties acknowledge that in the event of a breach of this Agreement, the non-breaching Party may suffer irreparable damage that may not be fully remedied

by monetary damages. The Parties therefore agree that such non-breaching Party will be entitled to seek injunctive relief against any such breach in any court of competent jurisdiction and the breaching Party will be responsible for all reasonable costs associated with such injunctive relief, provided that the non-breaching Party prevails in the substantive action. In the event that non-breaching Party is successful, the non-breaching Party’s rights under this Section 8.5 will not in any way be construed to limit or restrict its rights to seek other damages or relief available under this Agreement or applicable law.

8.6 Payment upon Termination. In the event of early termination of this Agreement by TherapeuticsMD, other than for termination as a result of a material breach of this Agreement or a failure to comply with an SOW or TherapeuticsMD’s written instructions, (a) TherapeuticsMD will (i) pay Company for Services actually performed prior to the effective date of termination, and (ii) reimburse Company for expenses that were approved by TherapeuticsMD and incurred by Company prior to the effective date of termination that are not cancellable by Company, and (b) to the extent that TherapeuticsMD has pre-paid fees to Company for Services subsequently terminated, Company will refund the difference between such pre-payment and actual approved fees and costs actually incurred by Company, which are not cancellable, through the date of termination. Without prejudice to any other remedy for breach of this Agreement, upon termination of this Agreement or any SOW, Company will not be released from the performance of any obligation for which payment has been received.

INDEMNIFICATION, INSURANCE, AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

10.1 Indemnification.

(a) By Either Party. Each Party will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the other Party, its Affiliates, and their respective shareholders, officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any and all third-party losses, liabilities, claims, costs, damages, and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees, experts’ fees, and court costs incurred or which it may incurred directly or indirectly arising out of or resulting from: (a) any act or omission made by the indemnifying Party, its Personnel, or its agents related to Services performed hereunder which is negligent or which constitutes a breach of any of the terms of this Agreement; (b) any untrue or inaccurate representation made by the indemnifying Party, its Personnel, or its agents in this Agreement; (c) a violation of, or non-compliance with any Applicable Law by the indemnifying Party, its Personnel, or its Agents; or (d) the infringement, alleged infringement, misappropriation, or alleged misappropriation of any patent, trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, or other proprietary or contractual rights of any third party arising from the Services or reports, data, analyses, processes, Work Product, or other deliverables produced or delivered by the indemnifying Party to the indemnified Party in connection with the Services.

(c) Claims. Promptly upon receiving notice of any claim or action for which a Party wishes to seek indemnification hereunder, such Party will promptly notify the other in writing of the assertion of any such claim, suit, action or proceeding. Failure to provide such notice which substantially prejudices the indemnifying Party’s ability to defend such claim or action may invalidate any obligation of indemnification. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Party seeking to be indemnified will nevertheless be entitled to retain separate counsel at its own costs to participate in such matter; however, the indemnifying Party will have sole case management authority; provided, however, neither Party may compromise or settle any matter without the other Party’s prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld. Any Party seeking indemnification will fully cooperate with the indemnifying Party.

10.2 Insurance. To secure the performance of its obligations under this Agreement, Company will acquire and maintain at its sole cost and expense at all times during the Term of this Agreement insurance at levels that are customary for the Services provided. If requested by TherapeuticsMD, Company will furnish certificates of insurance evidencing such coverages or the original of the insurance policies for review by TherapeuticsMD and will have TherapeuticsMD named as an additional insured. No such policies required hereunder will be cancelable or subject to reduction of coverage or other modification except after thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to TherapeuticsMD and Company. Company will, within thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of such policies, furnish TherapeuticsMD with renewals or “binders” thereof.

10.3 Limitation of Liability. NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS), WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL NOT APPLY TO: (A) THE AMOUNTS EACH PARTY IS OBLIGATED TO PAY TO A THIRD PARTY PURSUANT TO ANY INDEMNIFICATION PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT; (B) DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF EITHER PARTY’S NEGLIGENCE OR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OR INACTION UNDER THIS

11.4 Defend Trade Secrets Act. Each Party agrees that it is hereby notified in accordance with the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 that such Party will not be held criminally or civilly liable under any federal or state trade secret law for the disclosure of a trade secret that: (a) is made (i) in confidence to a federal, state, or local government official, either directly or indirectly, or to an attorney; and (ii) solely for the purpose of reporting or investigating a suspected violation of law; or (b) is made in a complaint or other document that is filed under seal in a lawsuit or other proceeding.

11.5 Whistleblower Provision. Nothing in this Agreement will be construed to prevent disclosure of Confidential Information as may be required by applicable law or regulation, or pursuant to the valid order of a court of competent jurisdiction or an authorized government agency, provided that such disclosure does not exceed the extent of disclosure required by such law, regulation or order. Each Party agrees to provide prompt written notice of any such order to the other Party to the extent permitted by such law, regulation or order.
