CALCULATION OF FILING FEE

 

Transaction valuation*   Amount of filing fee
$7,594,548.30   $920.46 (#)

 

* Estimated for purposes of calculating the amount of the filing fee only. Adhera Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) is offering holders of the Company’s outstanding shares of its Series E Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Series E Preferred Stock”), and Series F Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Series F Preferred Stock”, and together with the Series E Preferred Stock, the “Preferred Stock”), the opportunity to exchange each share of Preferred Stock for such number of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.006 per share (the “Shares”), as is equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the “stated value” of such share of Preferred Stock by (B) $0.50 (such shares, the “Exchange Shares”), by tendering one share of Preferred Stock in exchange for the corresponding number of Exchange Shares. The amount of the filing fee assumes that all of the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock will be exchanged and is calculated pursuant to Rule 0-11(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The transaction value was determined by using the average of the high and low prices of the Company’s common stock as reported by the OTCQB on August 15, 2019, which was $0.18.

SCHEDULE TO

 

This Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) amends and supplements the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 20, 2019 (together with any subsequent amendments and supplements thereto, the “Schedule TO”) by Adhera Therapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), relating to the offer by the Company to all holders of the Company’s outstanding shares of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Series E Stock”), and Series F Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Series F Stock” and, together with the Series E Stock, the “Preferred Stock”), which shares of Preferred Stock are convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.006 per share (the “Shares”), at a conversion price of $0.50 per Share (subject to adjustment), to receive, in exchange for each share of Preferred Stock tendered by the holders thereof, such number of Shares as is equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the “stated value” of such share of Preferred Stock by (B) $0.50 (subject to the Adjustment Mechanism described in the original Schedule TO and the related Offer to Exchange). The “stated value” of each share of Preferred Stock was originally $5,000, which amount has increased as a result of accrued and unpaid dividends thereon.

 

The offer is subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Offer to Exchange, dated August 20, 2019 (as it may be amended, restated or supplemented from time to time, the “Offer Letter”), and in the related Letter of Transmittal (as it may be amended, restated or supplemented from time to time, the “Letter of Transmittal”), a copy of which were filed as Exhibits (a)(1)(A) – (a)(1)(B) to the Schedule TO (which documents collectively constitute the “Offer”).

 

This Amendment is being filed to announce the termination of the Offer and to amend and supplement Items 1 through 9 and Item 11 of the Schedule TO as provided below.

 

Items 1 through Item 11.

 

The disclosure in the Offer Letter and Items 1 through 11 of the Schedule TO is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following new paragraphs thereto:

 

“On September 26, 2019, the Company announced the termination of the Offer. As a result of the termination of the Offer, no shares of Preferred Stock were accepted for exchange or exchanged pursuant to the Offer. The Company has instructed the Depositary to promptly return all shares of Preferred Stock tendered and not withdrawn to the tendering holders of Preferred Stock.

 

The full text of the press release issued by the Company announcing the termination of the Offer is attached as Exhibit (a)(1)(C) to this Schedule TO and is incorporated by reference herein.”

Item 12 of the Schedule TO is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following exhibit:
