Ladies and Gentlemen:

Cumberland Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Company”) and B. Riley Securities, Inc. (formerly B. Riley FBR, Inc.) (the “Agent,”) are parties to that certain At Market Issuance Sales Agreement dated November 7, 2017 (the “Original Agreement”). All capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Original Agreement. The parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby amend the Original Agreement as follows:

1.With respect to issuances of Placement Shares that occur on or after the date hereof, reference to the “Registration Statement” in the Original Agreement shall refer to the registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-251308), as amended, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 11, 2020 and declared effective January 8, 2021 (“New Registration Statement”).

2.Section 6(k) of the Original Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced as follows:

    “S-3 Eligibility. At the time the Registration Statement was or will be filed and declared effective, and at the time the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K was filed with the Commission, the Company met or will meet the then applicable requirements for the use of Form S-3 under the Securities Act, including, but not limited to, General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3, if applicable. As of the close of trading on the Exchange on December 6, 2021, the aggregate market value of the outstanding voting and non-voting common equity (as defined in Rule 405) of the Company held by persons other than affiliates of the Company (pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act, those that directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, control, or are controlled by, or are under common control with, the Company) (the “Non-Affiliate Shares”), was approximately $59,991,914 (calculated by multiplying (x) the price at which the common equity of the Company was last sold on the Exchange on December 6, 2021 times (y) the number of Non-Affiliate Shares as of the date hereof). The Company is not a shell company (as defined in Rule 405 under the Securities Act) and has not been a shell company for at least 12 calendar months previously and if it has been a shell company at any time previously, has filed current Form 10 information (as defined in General Instruction I.B.6 of Form S-3) with the Commission at least 12 calendar months previously reflecting its status as an entity that is not a shell company.”

3.Section 6(p) of the Original Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced as follows:
Independent Public Accountant. BDO USA LLP (“BDO”) and BKD LLP (“BKD” and together with BDO, the “Accountants”), whose reports on the consolidated financial statements of the Company are filed with the Commission as part of the Company’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Commission and incorporated into the Registration Statement, are and, during the periods covered by their reports, were independent public accountants within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). BKD is the current independent registered public accounting firm of the Company. To the Company’s knowledge, the Accountants are not in violation of the auditor independence requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Sarbanes-Oxley Act”) with respect to the Company.”

4.All references to “November 7, 2017” set forth in Schedule 1 and Exhibit 7(l) of the Original Agreement are revised to read “November 7, 2017 (as amended by Amendment No. 1 to At Market Issuance Sales Agreement, dated December 27, 2021)”.
