As previously reported, on December 20, 2016, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement with certain investors pursuant to which the Company agreed, among other things, to issue warrants (the “2016 Warrants”) to purchase up to 367,343 shares of Common Stock to such investors in a registered direct offering.


As previously reported, on June 22, 2017, the Company entered into a termination agreement in connection with a cancelled registered direct transaction (the “Termination Agreement”).

In connection therewith, the Company received acceptance of the reprice offer (the “Acceptance”) from two holders on June 23, 2017 and entered into Warrant Exercise Agreements (the “Exercise Agreement”) with both holders of the 2016 Warrants (the “Exercising Holders”), which Exercising Holders own, in the aggregate, 2016 Warrants exercisable for 265,303 shares of Common Stock. Pursuant to the Acceptance and the Exercise Agreements, the Exercising Holders and the Company agreed that the Exercising Holders would exercise their 2016 Warrants with respect to 265,303 shares of Common Stock underlying such 2016 Warrants for the Reduced Exercise Price.


The Company expects to receive aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $437,750 from the exercise of the 2016 Warrants by the Exercising Holders.

Re:      Reset Offer of Common Stock Purchase Warrants dated [ ]


To Whom It May Concern:


Celsion Corporation (the “ Company ”) is pleased to offer to you the opportunity to reprice the exercise of all of the Common Stock purchase warrants set forth on Annex I attached hereto (the “ [ ] Reprice Warrant s ”) currently held by you (the “ Holder ”). The shares underlying the [ ] Reprice Warrants (“ Warrant Shares ”) have been registered for resale pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-[ ] (File No. [ ]) (the “ Registration Statement ”). The Registration Statement is currently effective and, upon exercise of the [ ] Reprice Warrants pursuant to this letter agreement, will be effective for the issuance or resale, as the case may be, of the [ ] Warrant Shares. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated as of [ ] , by and among the Company and the signatories thereto (the “ Purchase Agreement ”).


In consideration for exercising in full all of the [ ] Reprice Warrants held by you (the “ Warrant Exercise ”), the Company hereby offers you a reduced exercise price of the [ ] Reprice Warrants of $1.65 . Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in the event the Warrant Exercise would otherwise cause the Holder to exceed the beneficial ownership limitations (“ Beneficial Ownership Limitation ”) in the [ ] Reprice Warrants, the Company shall only issue such number of Warrant Shares to the Holder that would not cause such Holder to exceed the maximum number of Warrant Shares permitted thereunder with the balance to be held in abeyance until notice from such Holder that the balance (or portion thereof) may be issued in compliance with such limitations.


Expressly subject to the paragraph immediately following this paragraph below, Holder may accept this offer by signing this letter below, with such acceptance constituting Holder's exercise in full of the Reprice Warrants for an aggregate exercise price of set forth on the Holder’s signature page hereto (the " Warrants Exercise Price ") [ ] ET on [ ], 2017.


Additionally, the Company agrees to the representations, warranties and covenants set forth on Annex A attached hereto.


From the date hereof until five (5) Trading Days after the date hereof, neither the Company nor any Subsidiary shall issue, enter into any agreement to effect the repricing of warrants, except pursuant to this agreement or any agreement entered into on the date hereof with [ ]. 


If this Offer is accepted and the transaction documents are executed on or before [ ] ET on [ ], 2017, then on or before [ ] ET on [ ], 2017, the Company shall file a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission disclosing all material terms of the transactions contemplated hereunder. The Company shall also file an amendment to the prospectus supplement to the Registration Statements disclosing the reduced exercise price of the Reprice Warrants within 48 hours. The Company represents, warrants and covenants that, upon acceptance of this offer, the shares underlying the Reprice Warrants shall be issued free of any legends or restrictions on resale by Holder and all of the Warrant Shares shall be delivered electronically through the Depository Trust Company (i) on June 26, 2017 if the Company receives the Warrants Exercise Price no later than 2:00 p.m. ET on such date or (ii) within 1 business day of the date the Company receives the Warrants Exercise Price (or, with respect to shares in that would otherwise be in excess of the Beneficial Ownership Limitation, within 2 business days of the date the Company is notified by Holder that its ownership is less than the Beneficial Ownership Limitation). The terms of the Reprice Warrants, including but not limited to the obligations to deliver the Warrant Shares, shall otherwise remain in effect as if the acceptance of this offer were a formal Notice of Exercise (including but not limited to any liquidated damages and compensation in the event of late delivery of the Warrant Shares).





The Company acknowledges and agrees that the obligations of the Holders under this letter agreement are several and not joint with the obligations of any other holder of any other holders of Common Stock Purchase Warrants of the Company (each, an “ Other Holder ”) under any other agreement related to the exercise of such warrants (“ Other Warrant Exercise Agreement ”), and the Holder shall not be responsible in any way for the performance of the obligations of any Other Holder or under any such Other Warrant Exercise Agreement. Nothing contained in this letter agreement, and no action taken by the Holders pursuant hereto, shall be deemed to constitute the Holders and the Other Holders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that the Holders and the Other Holders are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this letter agreement and the Company acknowledges that the Holders and the Other Holders are not acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this letter agreement or any Other Warrant Exercise Agreement. The Company and the Holders confirm that the Holders have independently participated in the negotiation of the transactions contemplated hereby with the advice of its own counsel and advisors. The Holders shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce their rights, including, without limitation, the rights arising out of this letter agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any Other Holder to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.








To accept this offer, Holder must counter execute this letter agreement and return the fully executed agreement to the Company at e-mail: MTardugno@Celsion.com, attn.: Michael H. Tardugno, on or before [ ] ET on [ ], 2017.
