Holder of Common Stock Purchase Warrant

Re:     Inducement Offer to Exercise Common Stock Purchase Warrants

Dear Holder:

Baudax Bio, Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to offer to you the opportunity to exercise all or part of the Common Stock Purchase Warrants of the Company (the “Existing Warrants”) currently held by you (the “Holder”). The Existing Warrants and the shares underlying the Existing Warrants (“Warrant Shares”) have been registered pursuant to registration statement Form S-3 (File No. 333-243488) (the “Registration Statement”). The Registration Statement is currently effective and, upon exercise of the Existing Warrants pursuant to this letter agreement, will be effective for the issuance or sale, as the case may be, of the Warrant Shares. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Existing Warrant.

In consideration for exercising all or a portion of the Existing Warrants held by you, as set forth on the signature page hereto (the “Warrant Exercise”) at the current exercise price of $1.18, the Company hereby offers to sell to you or your designee a new Common Stock Purchase Warrant (“New Warrant”) to purchase up to a number of shares of Common Stock equal to the number of Warrant Shares issued in the Warrant Exercise. The purchase price of the New Warrant shall equal the $0.125 per share underlying the New Warrant. The New Warrant shall be issued pursuant to the Registration Statement, have an exercise price equal to $1.60, be exercisable immediately and be otherwise in the form of the Existing Warrants. The original New Warrant certificate(s) will be delivered within two Business Days following the date hereof. 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”) set forth in Section 1(f) of the Existing Warrants, the Company shall only issue such number of Warrant Shares to the Holder that would not cause the Holder to exceed the maximum number of Warrant Shares permitted thereunder with the balance to be held in abeyance until notice from the Holder that the balance (or portion thereof) may be issued in compliance with such limitations, which abeyance shall be evidenced through the Existing Warrant which shall be deemed prepaid thereafter, and exercised pursuant to a Notice of Exercise in the Existing Warrant (provided no additional exercise shall be payable).

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 Existing Warrants for an aggregate exercise price set forth on the Holder’s signature page hereto (the “Warrants Exercise Price”) on or before 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time on January 21 2021.

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

If this offer is accepted and the transaction documents are executed on or before 8:30 am Eastern Time on January 21, 2021, then on or before 9:30 am ET on such Trading Day, the Company shall file a press release or a Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC disclosing all material terms of the transactions contemplated hereunder. The Company shall file a prospectus supplement to the Registration Statement as to the New Warrants and shares underlying the New Warrants within the time period prescribed under the Securities Act. The Company represents, warrants and covenants that, upon acceptance of this offer, the shares underlying the Existing 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 within 1 Business Day of the date the Company receives the Warrants Exercise Price (or, with respect to Warrant Shares 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 Existing 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).

Each of the parties hereto agree to waive Section 2(e) of the Existing Warrants. In the event the Warrant Exercise results in the Holder exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as defined in the Existing Warrants), the Holder agrees that any Warrant Shares exceeding the Beneficial Ownership Limitation (as determined by the Holder) will be held in abeyance by the Company for such Holder. For the avoidance of doubt, the exercise price payable by the Holder in respect of any Warrant Shares held in abeyance pursuant to the foregoing shall be paid by the Holder upon the closing of the Warrant Exercise.


Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions.


Sincerely yours,
