Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On August 14, 2022, Athenex, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Limited Waiver (the “Waiver”) under the Revenue Interest Purchase Agreement (the “RIPA”) with affiliates of Sagard Healthcare Partners and funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management (together, the “Purchasers”), pursuant to which the Purchasers waived the obligation of the Company to wire the $7,500,000 held in a segregated account (the “Segregated Funds”) to Oaktree Fund Administration, LLC, as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Administrative Agent”) for the lenders (the “Lenders”) under that certain Credit Agreement and Guaranty, dated as of June 19, 2020 by and among the Company, as borrower, the guarantors from time to time party thereto, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders (as amended, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”) to be applied to the indebtedness under the Credit Agreement in accordance with the Credit Agreement. Accordingly, the Company has the right to use the Segregated Funds for its general corporate purposes.

Also on August 14, 2022, the Company entered into the Sixth Amendment to the Credit and Guaranty Agreement (the “Sixth Amendment”) with the Administrative Agent and the Lenders. Under the Sixth Amendment, the Lenders waived the Company’s obligation, if certain conditions in the RIPA and Credit Agreement had not been satisfied, to make an additional mandatory prepayment of the indebtedness under the Credit Agreement in the principal amount equal to $7,500,000, plus accrued and unpaid interest in respect of the principal amount being repaid and fees equal to 5% of the principal amount repaid, allocated as a 2.0% Exit Fee and 3.0% Prepayment Fee (each as defined in the Credit Agreement).

In addition, under the Sixth Amendment the Company agreed to, on or before September 30, 2022, make a mandatory prepayment in a principal amount equal to the amount by which $6,875,000 exceeds any mandatory prepayments made by the Company on or prior to September 30, 2022 from the proceeds of the sale of the Company’s China API business to TiHe Capital (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (“TiHe”) in accordance with the Equity Purchase Agreement, dated as of July 7, 2022, by and between the Company and TiHe. If the sale to TiHe is not completed after September 30, 2022, the Company must make a mandatory prepayment of principal equal to $6,875,000 on September 30, 2022. However, any such mandatory prepayment shall be credited against any mandatory prepayments otherwise required in respect of the sale to TiHe. In addition to the mandatory prepayment of principal described in this paragraph, the Company must pay accrued and unpaid interest in respect of the principal amount being repaid plus fees equal to 5% of the principal amount being repaid, allocated as a 2.0% Exit Fee and 3.0% Prepayment Fee (each as defined in the Credit Agreement).

The foregoing summary of the Waiver and the Sixth Amendment do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the Waiver and the Sixth Amendment, copies of which are filed hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.2 and are incorporated herein by reference.
