Re:Letter Agreement

Dear Mr. Derby:

This letter agreement (this “Agreement”) is entered into in connection with the redemption rights under the Series A Preferred Stock (“Preferred Stock”) of Timber Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”).  The parties acknowledge and agree as follows: (1) that TardiMed Sciences LLC (the “Holder”) is the holder of 1,819 shares of Preferred Stock, representing all of the outstanding shares of the Company’s Preferred Stock held by Holder, (2) that in or about the latter part of  2020, the Holder became entitled to redeem the shares of Preferred Stock, (3) Holder does not dispute Company’s determination that a redemption of the Preferred Stock at this time would not be in the best interests of the Company or its shareholders, and (4) the Holder owns approximately 3,109,067 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) received as consideration for the Company’s May 2020 merger transaction. Accordingly, the parties agree to the following terms:

1.The Holder will exchange its shares of Preferred Stock plus accrued dividends for a pre-funded warrant (the “Warrant”), in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A, to purchase 9,054,1321 shares of Common Stock (as subject to adjustment per the terms of the Warrant, the “Warant Shares”) at an exercise price of $0.0001 per share. The Warrant shall be exerciseable as follows: (i) twenty percent (20%) of the initial balance of the Warrant Shares shall be exercisable immediately upon issuance; and (ii) beginning on September 30, 2022 and at the end of each subsequent calendar quarter, upon the written request of the Holder (each, a “Request”), the Company will allow an additional twenty percent (20%) of the initial balance of the Warrant Shares to be exercisable by the Holder; provided, that, the Warrant shall not be exercisable to the extent that it would cause the number of Warrant Shares then held by the Holder to exceed twenty percent (20%) of the initial balance of the Warrant Shares in any calendar quarter; provided further, that, the Holder will disclose the current balance of the Warrant Shares in writing to the Company in connection with each Request for purposes of calculating the foregoing exercise limitations. The Holder covenants and agrees that (i) it will fully comply with the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), in effecting any transfers of the Common Stock; and (ii) the Warrant Shares will remain in the Holder’s account at the Company’s transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, N.A. (the “Transfer Agent”), until sold or otherwise transferred pursuant to Rule 144 of the Act.

2.The Holder covenants and agrees that, if so requested by the Company or the underwriter or placement agent in connection with a public offering of the Company’s securities registered under the Act, the Holder shall not sell, make any short sale of, loan, grant any option for the purchase of, or otherwise dispose of any Warrant Shares without the prior written consent of the Company or such underwriter or placement agent, as
