On October 11, 2018, the Issuer (then named “Alliqua Biomedical”) entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization, as amended and supplemented from time to time (the “Merger Agreement”), with Embark Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”) and Adynnx, Inc.

Accordingly, (i) the 28,726,460 shares of Series B Preferred Stock of Prior Adynxx (the “Prior Adynxx Preferred”) held by TPG Biotech IV before the Merger were converted into Prior Adynxx common stock and then into 1,031,279 shares of Common Stock; and (ii) the $650,000 aggregate principal amount of convertible notes of Prior Adynxx (the “Prior Adynxx Notes”) held by TPG Biotech IV before the Merger were converted into Prior Adynxx common stock and then into 81,011 shares of Common Stock. The purchase of the Prior Adynxx Preferred and Prior Adynxx Notes had been funded by equity contributions of the limited partners of TPG Biotech IV.
