What is the status of the planned merger with Aditxt?

On December 11, 2023, Aditxt, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADTX) and Evofem entered into the Agreement and Plan of Merger by and between the Company and Aditxt (the “Merger Agreement”). Under this agreement, Aditxt intends to acquire Evofem in consideration of the issuance of a combination of common stock and preferred stock, and the assumption of certain senior indebtedness.


The Merger Agreement was subsequently amended by Aditxt and Evofem as follows:  

  1. First amendment to the Merger Agreement (January 10, 2024)
    • Changed the filing date for the Joint Proxy Statement (as defined in the Merger Agreement) to February 14, 2024.
  2. Second amendment to the Merger Agreement (January 30, 2024)
    • Changed the date of the Parent Loan (as defined in the Merger Agreement) to Evofem to February 29, 2024
    • Changed the date by which Evofem may terminate the Merger Agreement for failure to receive the Loan from Parent to February 29, 2024.
    • Changed the filing date for the Joint Proxy Statement (as defined in the Merger Agreement) to April 1, 2024.
  3. Third amendment to the Merger Agreement (February 29, 2024)
    • Made certain conforming changes to the Merger Agreement regarding Evofem’s senior secured debt (the “Notes”).
    • Extended the filing date of the joint proxy statement to April 30, 2024.
    • Removed the requirement that Aditxt make the Parent Loan (as defined in the Merger Agreement) by February 29, 2024, and replaced it with the requirement that Aditxt will make an equity investment into Evofem consisting of:
      • The purchase of 2,000 shares of Evofem Series F-1 Preferred Stock for $2.0 million, in aggregate, on or prior to April 1, 2024, and,
      • The purchase of 1,500 shares of Evofem Series F-1 Preferred Stock for $1.5 million, in aggregate, on or prior to April 30, 2024.

Because the required and agreed $2.0 million investment was not made on or prior to April 1, 2024, Evofem delivered a termination letter to Aditxt on April 26, 2024 and the Merger Agreement was immediately terminated upon its delivery.


On May 2, 2024, the companies reinstated the Merger Agreement, as amended, and entered into the Fourth Amendment to the Agreement and Plan of Merger.


Key adjustments under the Fourth Amendment include:

  • Aditxt paid $1.0 million of non-dilutive capital to Evofem in May 2024 in conjunction with the reinstatement and Fourth Amendment.
  • Aditxt will invest an additional $2.5 million in Evofem through the purchase of Series F-1 Convertible Preferred Stock prior to July 1, 2024. To fund these mandated investments, Aditxt will allocate to Evofem, from any capital raise, 40% of the gross proceeds up to:
    • $1.5 million prior to June 17, 2024, and
    • $1 million prior to July 1, 2024.
  • Aditxt consented to allow Evofem to pursue potential investments in the Company.
  • If Evofem receives a superior proposal to the Merger Agreement, the Company will notify and allow Aditxt ten days to negotiate a competing offer.  
  • The $4 million termination fee has been deleted from the Merger Agreement in its entirety, enabling Evofem to accept and consummate a superior proposal with no penalty.

The companies are working toward closing in the second half of 2024.

Requirements for closing of the proposed Transaction include:

  • Timely investment by Aditxt of $2.5 million in Evofem as stipulated by the Fourth Amendment.
  • The purchase by Aditxt of Evofem’s senior secured debt from the debtholders on or before July 15, 2024, as stipulated by the Third Amendment.
  • Affirmative vote of Evofem’s stockholders on the proposal seeking approval of the proposed Transaction at the Company’s forthcoming Stockholder Meeting.

Upon closing of the proposed Transaction:

  • Common stockholders. Evofem common stock (EVFM) will be cancelled, and holders of Evofem’s common stock will receive, ratably, an aggregate of 610,000 shares of Aditxt common stock (ADTX).
  • Other stakeholders. Aditxt will issue up to an aggregate of 89,126 shares of preferred stock to the holders of Evofem’s outstanding unsecured notes, purchase rights, certain warrants, and preferred stock.
  • Aditxt subsidiary Adifem, Inc. (f/k/a Adicure, Inc.) will merge with and into Evofem.  Evofem will be the surviving company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aditxt.
  • After closing, the Evofem management team will receive equity grants in the subsidiary of up to ten percent on a fully diluted basis.
  • Evofem will continue to be led by its current management team, focused on women’s sexual and reproductive health.
