Item 8.01 Other Events.
On July 10, 2020, Eton Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a “lock-up agreement” to restrict the sale of 3,500,000 of the Company’s common stock, $0.01 par value per share (“Common Stock”) held by Harrow Health, Inc. (“Harrow”). The lock-up agreement prevents the sale, and broadly, the encumbrance, of all of Harrow’s shares of Common Stock without Eton’s approval and extends to either December 31, 2020 or July 2, 2021 depending on certain circumstances. In consideration for Harrow entering into the lock-up agreement, the Company agreed to file a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (the “S-3 Registration Statement”) covering the resale of Harrow shares of the Company’s Common Stock. On July 31, 2020, the Company filed the aforementioned S-3 Registration Statement.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
