Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


Effective as of September 12, 2018 (the “Effective Date”), Windtree Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Loan Agreement (“Loan Agreement”) with LPH Investments Ltd., a Cayman Islands company organized and existing under the laws of Cayman Islands (“LPH”), and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lee’s Pharmaceutical Holdings Limited. Under the Loan Agreement, LPH agreed to lend the Company $500,000 (the “Loan”) to support the Company’s operations while the Company seeks to complete a strategic transaction (as defined in the Loan Agreement, the “Strategic Transaction”). The Loan, which was funded in a single installment by wire transfer on September 12, 2018, will accrue interest at a rate of 6% per annum and will mature upon the earlier of (i) the closing date for the Strategic Transaction, provided that the Company is able to raise a minimum of $30 million in connection with such transaction, or (ii) March 31, 2019. At this time, if the Company is unable to complete the Strategic Transaction for any reason, it likely will have insufficient resources to repay the Loan and may be forced to curtail some or all of its activities, and, ultimately, may be compelled to cease operations.


The Company agreed to secure its obligations with respect to the Loan under a previously-executed Security Agreement with LPH (the “Security Agreement”) dated March 1, 2018, pursuant to which the Company had granted to LPH a security interest in substantially all of the Company’s assets.


The foregoing descriptions of the Loan Agreement and Security Agreement do not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the agreements. A copy of the Loan Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K. A copy of the Security Agreement was filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, which was filed with the SEC on March 5, 2018. The Loan Agreement is being filed, and the Security Agreement was filed, to provide investors and the Company’s stockholders with information regarding the terms thereof and in accordance with applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”). Pursuant to the Loan Agreement and Security Agreement, each of the parties thereto made customary representations, warranties and covenants, which were made by the parties to and solely for the benefit of each other and any expressly intended third party beneficiaries in the context of all of the terms and conditions of the agreements and in the context of the specific relationship between the parties. Accordingly, investors and stockholders should not rely on the representations, warranties and covenants as characterizations of the actual state of facts or continuing intentions of the parties since they were only made as of the dates of the Loan Agreement and Security Agreement. Information concerning the subject matter of such representations, warranties and covenants may change, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s reports or other filings with the Commission.
