Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 18, 2016, The Female Health Company (“FHC”) entered into a First Amendment to Lock-Up Agreement (the “Amendments”) with each of Harry Fisch, M.D., Mitchell Steiner, M.D. and the K&H Fisch Family Partners LLC (collectively, the “Lock-Up Parties”). FHC had previously entered into a Lock-Up Agreement each of the Lock-Up Parties on April 5, 2016, concurrent with the execution of an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) among FHC, Badger Acquisition Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of FHC (“FHC Delaware Sub”), Blue Hen Acquisition, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly-owned subsidiary of FHC (“APP Merger Sub”), and Aspen Park Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“APP”), as described in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by FHC on April 6, 2016. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, upon the terms and subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions therein, FHC will be reincorporated in Delaware through the merger of FHC with and into FHC Delaware Sub (the “Reincorporation Merger”) with FHC Delaware Sub continuing as the surviving corporation (“FHC Delaware”) and immediately after the Reincorporation Merger APP will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of FHC Delaware through the merger of APP Merger Sub with and into APP (the “APP Merger” and together with the Reincorporation Merger, the “Mergers”) with APP continuing as the surviving corporation.

The Amendments expand the voting agreement provisions of the Lock-Up Agreements by requiring each Lock-Up Party to vote all shares of the combined company following the Mergers owned by such stockholder or over which such stockholder has voting control in favor of all persons nominated by the combined company’s nominating and corporate governance committee for election as directors at the 2017 annual meeting of stockholders of the combined company and the 2018 annual meeting of stockholders of combined company. A form of the Amendments is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
