Item 1.01Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On February 5, 2018, Alliqua BioMedical, Inc. (the “Company”), AquaMed Technologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (the “Guarantor”), and Perceptive Credit Holdings, L.P. (“Perceptive”) entered into a Forbearance and Amendment Agreement (the “Amendment Agreement”), pursuant to which the parties agreed to certain amendments and modifications to the terms of the Credit Agreement and Guaranty, dated May 29, 2015, by and among the Company, the Guarantor and Perceptive (the “Credit Agreement”). The Amendment Agreement provides for, among other things, an extension to the currently effective forbearance period in respect of the Company’s default of a covenant pertaining to maintaining a minimum amount of unencumbered cash and trailing twelve-month revenue under the Credit Agreement (the “Specified Defaults”). Under the Amendment Agreement, Perceptive has agreed to forbear from exercising any rights and remedies related to the Specified Defaults until the earlier of (i) April 30, 2018, (ii) the date when Perceptive becomes aware that any other default (other than the Specified Defaults) has occurred and is continuing and (iii) the date that the previously announced Asset Purchase Agreement, dated January 5, 2018, by and among the Company and Celularity Inc. has been terminated (such earlier date, the “Termination Date”). Perceptive reserved the right, commencing on the Termination Date, to pursue any rights and remedies available to it under the Credit Agreement or pursuant to law or otherwise with respect to either or both of the Specified Defaults.


The foregoing description of the Amendment Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
