TherapeuticsMD, Inc. (NASDAQ: TXMD) (“TherapeuticsMD,” “TXMD” or the “Company”), an innovative, leading women’s healthcare company, today announced that it has completed its previously announced transaction with Mayne Pharma Group Limited (“Mayne Pharma”), an ASX-listed specialty pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing novel and generic pharmaceuticals, pursuant to which TXMD granted Mayne Pharma an exclusive license to commercialize TXMD’s products in the United States. In addition, TXMD sold certain assets to Mayne Pharma to enable it to commercialize the products.

Total consideration paid to TXMD included an upfront cash payment of $140.0 million for the license grant and sale of certain assets, plus an additional approximately $13.1 million for the acquisition of net working capital and prepaid royalties. In addition, TXMD is eligible to receive up to $30.0 million in milestone payments as well as royalties on net sales of between 7.5% and 8.0%, for a period of 20 years, with 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. The approximately $1.0 million in prepaid royalties paid at closing will reduce the first four quarterly royalty payments that would have otherwise been payable to TXMD.

The Company used a portion of the proceeds to repay all obligations under the Company’s Financing Agreement with Sixth Street Specialty Lending, Inc. In addition, the Company also redeemed all 29,000 outstanding shares of its Series A Preferred Stock at a purchase price of $1,333 per share and paid certain affiliates of Rubric Capital Management LP (“Rubric”) approximately $3.0 million as a make-whole payment pursuant to the subscription agreements previously entered into between the Company and Rubric.

"We are pleased to have completed this transaction with Mayne Pharma, which enabled us to repay our debt, redeem our preferred stock and provide our common shareholders with value from ongoing royalty revenue streams for decades to come," said The Honorable Tommy Thompson, Executive Chairman of TherapeuticsMD. “With their experience and commercial capabilities, we are confident that Mayne Pharma will be a good steward of our products.”

In connection with the closing of the transaction, Mr. Paul M. Bisaro, Ms. Karen L. Ling, Mr. Jules A. Musing and Mr. Angus C. Russell resigned from the Company’s board of directors. In addition, Mr. Marlan Walker, the Company’s General Counsel, was appointed as the Company’s Principal Executive Officer, succeeding Dr. Brian Bernick and Mr. Mark Glickman.
