On July 5, 2018, APHC Holdings, LLC (APHC) made a pro rata, in-kind distribution of the 171,260,707 Common Units of Amneal LLC and 171,260,707 shares of Class B Common Stock of the Issuer to its members for no consideration (the Distribution) as part of the plan of dissolution and liquidation of APHC.

Stockholders Agreement
  
On October 17, 2017, the Issuer and the members of Amneal LLC entered into a stockholders agreement that was subsequently amended and restated on December 16, 2017 (the Stockholders Agreement), which sets forth, among other things, certain rights and obligations of the parties with respect to: the corporate governance of the Issuer, including director designation rights and the composition of committees of the Issuers Board of Directors (the Board); consent rights; restrictions on transfer, acquisitions and dispositions of securities of the Issuer by Amneal LLC and its affiliates; registration rights; and other matters set forth therein. As a result of the Distribution, the recipients of the Common Units (the Successors), including the Trusts, succeeded to certain rights and obligations of APHC under the Stockholders Agreement. Pending the completion of its dissolution and liquidation, APHC will continue to serve as the Amneal Group Representative (as that term is defined in the Stockholders Agreement).
   
Director Designation
     
For so long as APHC, the Successors, or any of their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns, beneficially owns more than 50% of the outstanding Class A Common Stock, Class B Common Stock and/or Class B-1 Common Stock (collectively, the Common Stock), APHC may designate for nomination to the Issuers Board (i) the lowest number of directors that constitutes a majority of the Issuers Board; (ii) two of the four directors serving on each of the nominating committee and compensation committee; and (iii) two Co-Chairmen of the Issuers Board. Pursuant to the Stockholders Agreement, seven directors have been designated to the Board, including Chintu Patel and Chirag Patel, who were designated Co-Chairmen of the Board.
 
In the event that APHC, the Successors, or any of their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns, beneficially owns less than 50% but more than 10% of the outstanding Common Stock, APHC may designate a number of directors proportionate to the aggregate beneficial ownership of the outstanding Common Stock (rounded up to the nearest whole number) of APHC, the Successors, and their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns, and each of the Issuers Board committees (other than the audit committee) will include at least one director designated by APHC.
   
For so long as APHC, the Successors, or any of their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns, beneficially owns at least 10% of the outstanding Common Stock, APHC and the Successors have agreed to vote any voting securities of the Issuer held by them in favor of all director designees recommended by the Issuers Board.
   
Consent Rights
     
For so long as APHC, the Successors, or any of their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns, beneficially owns more than 25% of the outstanding Common Stock, the Issuer has agreed not to (i) amend, modify, or repeal any provision of the Issuers charter or bylaws in a manner that adversely impacts APHC, the Successors, or any of their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns; (ii) effect any change in the authorized number of directors, except pursuant to the Stockholders Agreement; (iii) create or reclassify any new or existing class or series of capital stock to grant rights, preferences, or privileges with respect to voting, liquidation, redemption, conversion or dividends that are senior to or on parity with those of the shares of the Issuer; or (iv) consummate any transaction as a result of which (a) more than 50% of the outstanding shares of the Issuer will be beneficially owned by any persons other than APHC, the Successors or any of their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns, and (b) APHC, the Successors, or any of their affiliates, successors and permitted assigns receives an amount or form of consideration different than that which is granted to other holders of shares of the Issuer.

Restrictions on Transfers and Acquisitions
   
For a period of 180 days following the business combination of Impax Laboratories, Inc. and Amneal LLC (the Lock-up Period), APHC and the Successors have agreed not to, without the prior written consent of the conflicts committee of the Board, transfer any shares of the Issuer, other than (i) pursuant to a tender or exchange offer approved or recommended by the Board; (ii) pursuant to any merger, share exchange, sale of all or substantially all of the Issuers assets or similar transaction; (iii) transfers to affiliates of APHC or the Successors; (iv) transfers in connection with any pledge made pursuant to a loan or other financing transaction; and (v) transfers to family members of the Successors or to trusts for the benefits of such family members. Following the expiration of the Lock-up Period, APHC and the Successors generally may not transfer more than 15% of the outstanding shares of Class A Common Stock in any 12-month period without the approval of the conflicts committee other than in a registered offering.  

Standstill Provisions
    
Until the earlier of (i) May 4, 2021 and (ii) such time when the Successors beneficially own less than 20% of the outstanding shares of the Issuer, the Successors will not, without the prior written consent of the conflicts committee, directly or indirectly, be permitted to: (i) acquire beneficial ownership of shares of Common Stock (except in limited circumstance); (ii) publicly seek a change in the composition or size of the Issuers Board, except in furtherance of the provisions of the Stockholders Agreement; (iii) deposit any shares of the Issuer into a voting trust or subject any such stock to any proxy or agreement that conflicts with the Trusts’ obligations under the Stockholders Agreement; or (iv) call for any general or special stockholders meeting or publicly solicit proxies in connection with the election and removal of directors.
  
Participating and Registration Rights
    
The Issuer has granted the Successors the right, to the extent permitted under the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) rules, to purchase their pro rata portion of any securities of the Issuer (other than certain excluded securities) that the Issuer proposes to issue or sell, which right is exercisable by APHC on behalf of the Successors.
  
If stockholder approval is required under the NYSE rules for the issuance or sale of securities, the Issuer may issue or sell securities to such other persons prior to obtaining such stockholder approval, subject to a notice of issuance, and the Issuer will use its reasonable best efforts to obtain such approval. After receipt of such approval, the Issuer will issue or sell the securities that the Successors have irrevocably elected to purchase to the Successors, on the terms set forth in the relevant notice of issuance.
  
The Issuer also agreed to use its reasonable best efforts to become eligible to use Form S-3 and, upon becoming eligible, the Issuer will promptly file a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (the Shelf Registration Statement) registering the resale of all of the Class A Common Stock held by the Successors. The Issuer also agreed to maintain effectiveness of the Shelf Registration Statement until such time as the Successors no longer hold Common Stock.
   
The Issuer is entitled to postpone and delay the filing or effectiveness of any registration statement or the offer or sale of any shares beneficially owned by the Successors (i) for reasonable periods of time in advance of the release of the Issuers quarterly and annual financial results and (ii) for reasonable periods of time, not in excess of 60 calendar days in any 12-month period and in no event more than two times in any 12-month period if certain conditions are met.
  
Amneal LLC Agreement
  
In connection with the closing of the business combination of Impax Laboratories, Inc. and Amneal LLC, Amneal LLC entered into and is governed by the Amneal Pharmaceuticals LLC Agreement, which sets forth, among other things, certain transfer restrictions on the Common Units, and rights to acquire Common Units in certain circumstances. The Amneal Pharmaceuticals LLC Agreement provides that the Issuer may not redeem, repurchase or otherwise acquire (i) any shares of Class A Common Stock or Class B-1 Common Stock of the Issuer, unless substantially simultaneously Amneal LLC redeems, repurchases or otherwise acquires from the Issuer an equal number of Common Units for the same price per security or (ii) any other equity security of the Issuer unless substantially simultaneously Amneal LLC redeems, repurchases or otherwise acquires from the Issuer an equal number of equity securities of Amneal LLC of a corresponding series or class for the same price per security.
  
General
  
The Trusts acquired the securities described in this Schedule 13D for investment purposes and the Reporting Person intends to review the Trusts’ investments in the Issuer on a continuing basis. Any actions the Reporting Person might undertake may be made at any time and from time to time without prior notice and will be dependent upon the Reporting Person’s review of numerous factors, including, but not limited to: an ongoing evaluation of the Issuers business, financial condition, operations and prospects; price levels of the Issuers securities; general market, industry and economic conditions; the relative attractiveness of alternative business and investment opportunities; and other future developments.

In addition, the Reporting Person, the Trusts and their designees to the Board may engage in discussions with management, the Board, and shareholders of the Issuer and other relevant parties or encourage, cause or seek to cause the Issuer or such persons to consider or explore extraordinary corporate transactions, such as: a merger, reorganization or take-private transaction that could result in the de-listing or de-registration of the Class A Common Stock; sales or acquisitions of assets or businesses; changes to the capitalization or dividend policy of the Issuer; or other material changes to the Issuers business or corporate structure, including changes in management or the composition of the Board.  

Other than as described above, the Reporting Person does not currently have any plans or proposals that relate to, or would result in, any of the matters listed in Items 4(a)(j) of Schedule 13D, although, depending on the factors discussed herein, the Reporting Person may change his purpose or formulate different plans or proposals with respect thereto at any time.
