Item 8.01Other Events.


As previously reported, on November 10, 2016, Amyris, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “PSA”) with Glycotech, Inc. (“Glycotech”) and Salisbury Partners, LLC (“Salisbury” and, together with Glycotech, the “Sellers”) relating to the purchase by the Company of a production facility in Leland, North Carolina (the “Facility”), the real property on which the Facility is located and the fixtures, equipment, materials and supplies and other tangible assets located at or used in connection with the Facility (collectively, the “Assets”) from the Sellers. The entry into the PSA was previously reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 16, 2016, which is incorporated herein by reference.


On December 5, 2016, the Company and the Sellers closed the purchase and sale of the Assets pursuant to the PSA. In connection therewith, the Company purchased the Assets from the Sellers for an aggregate purchase price of $4.35 million, of which $3.5 million was paid in the form of a purchase money promissory note (the “Note”) issued by the Company in favor of Salisbury. The Note (i) bears interest at a rate of 5% per year, (ii) has a term of 13 years, (iii) is payable in equal monthly installments of principal and interest beginning on January 1, 2017 (which payments are subject to a penalty of 5% if delinquent more than 5 days) and (iv) is secured by a purchase money lien on the Facility, the real property on which the Facility is located and the fixtures located at the Facility or on such real property. The Note contains customary terms and provisions, including certain events of default after which the Note may become immediately due and payable.


In connection with the closing of the purchase and sale of the Assets, the existing lease of the Facility between Glycotech and Salisbury and the existing production services agreement between the Company and Glycotech were terminated and the existing Right of First Refusal Agreement between the Company and Salisbury relating to the Facility and the site leased by Glycotech from Salisbury was modified such that the Company’s right of first refusal with respect to the sale of certain parcels of real property owned by Salisbury adjacent to the Facility would be an appurtenant right running with the ownership of the real property on which the Facility is located.







Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
