On November 12, 2013, Biozone Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company"), Biozone Laboratories, Inc. ("Bio Lab"), Baker Cummins Corp. ("BCC") (the Company, Bio Lab and BCC are collectively referred to as "Biozone"), Brian Keller, MusclePharm Corporation ("Musclepharm") and Biozone Laboratories, Inc. ("Acquisition Co."), a newly formed subsidiary of Musclepharm, entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement"). The Agreement provides that Acquisition Co. will acquire substantially all of the operating assets of Biozone including the QuSomes, HyperSorb and EquaSomes drug delivery technologies (excluding certain assets including cash on hand) for 1,200,000 shares of Musclepharm's common stock.

During the Escrow Period, Musclepharm will have the option to purchase the Escrowed Shares at $10.00 per share in cash. The Escrowed Shares will also back-stop potential indemnification claims that Acquisition Co. may have under the Agreement.
The Agreement contains representations, warranties, covenants and termination rights that are customary for a transaction of this type. The closing of the Agreement is subject to several closing conditions including the Company receiving shareholder approval, Musclepharm's receipt of a fairness opinion, Mr. Brian Keller, the Company's President and Chief Scientific Officer, entering into a new two-year Employment Agreement with Musclepharm and other customary closing conditions.
