Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.


On December 21, 2015, Actinium entered into an Investor Rights Agreement (the “Investor Rights Agreement”) with Memorial Sloan Cancer Center (“MSKCC”). Under the terms of the Investor Rights Agreement, MSKCC has agreed to forebear from transferring or otherwise disposing of its approximately 5.7 million Actinium shares (other than pursuant to a piggyback registration as described below) until the start of the Actimab-A Phase 2 clinical study (but, in no event until later than March 31, 2016). Thereafter MSKCC shall be permitted to sell its shares subject to a weekly volume limitation of 150,000 shares (which limit may be increased to up to 250,000 shares per week to the extent any prior weekly allotments were not fully used) and applicable law so long as MSKCC maintains at least 25% of its current shareholding in Actinium through December 31, 2016. Actinium has granted MSKCC piggyback registration rights that would be triggered in the event Actinium were to engage in a public registered offering of its shares for its own account where other shareholders are participating as selling shareholders or where such public registered offering is for the account of other selling shareholders. In addition, following December 31, 2016, Actinium has granted MSKCC unlimited Form S-3 registration rights with respect to its shares.


A copy of the Investor Rights Agreement is filed herewith as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the press release announcing the entry into the Investor Rights Agreement is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The above description is only a summary of the terms of Investor Rights Agreement, and does not purport to be complete description of such document, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Investor Rights Agreement, a copy of which is attached as an exhibit hereto and which is incorporated by reference in this Item 1.01.
