Item 8.01 Other Events.
On February 23, 2021, Eton Pharmaceuticals, Inc’s (“Eton”) marketing partner, Bausch Health, announced the launch of Alaway® Preservative Free, previously known as Eton’s EM-100 product. Alaway® Preservative Free is the only over-the-counter preservative-free antihistamine eye itch relief drop approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and it is now available at national retailers including Walgreens, CVS, Walmart and Amazon.
Eton sold the product rights in Alaway ® to Bausch Health in 2019. Under the terms of the sale, the commercial launch of the product triggers a $1.5 million milestone payment to Eton, and Eton will also receive a 12% royalty on Bausch Health’s net sales of the product.
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.
