Item 8.01. Other Events

 

On April 12, 2019, Aceto Corporation, a New York corporation (the “Company”), announced that it has received approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to sell the assets of Rising Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Rising”), and Rising’s subsidiaries to Shore Suven Pharma, Inc. (“Shore Suven Pharma”) for gross cash proceeds of $15 million, plus the assumption of operating liabilities and customer obligations related to the acquired business, on a cash-free and debt-free basis.

 

The sale was conducted through a Court-supervised process under Section 363 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Under that process, Shore Suven Pharma’s purchase agreement served as the “stalking horse agreement” and an auction would have been conducted had the Company received qualified offers from other bidders reflecting potentially higher and/or otherwise better terms. No such bids were received prior to the bid deadline. Therefore, no auction was conducted and Shore Suven Pharma was selected as the successful bidder of the Company’s Pharma Business on March 29, 2019. The transaction is expected to close on April 19, 2019, subject to the satisfaction of certain other conditions.

 

Additional details are contained in the Company’s press release issued on April 12, 2019, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
