Item 8.01 Other Events.

On May 6, 2015, Antares Pharma, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with Piper Jaffray & Co. as representative of the several underwriters listed on Schedule I thereto (the “Underwriters”), with respect to the issuance and sale in an underwritten public offering (the “Offering”) by the Company of 20,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, $0.01 par value (the “Shares”), at a price to the public of $2.00 per Share. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company granted the Underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,000,000 Shares. The Underwriting Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and agreements by the Company, customary conditions to closing, indemnification obligations of the Company and the Underwriters, including for liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), other obligations of the parties and termination provisions.

The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Underwriting Agreement were made only for purposes of such agreement and as of specific dates, were solely for the benefit of the parties to such agreement, and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties. The foregoing description of the Underwriting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Underwriting Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 1.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference. A copy of the opinion of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP relating to the legality of the issuance and sale of the Shares is attached as Exhibit 5.1 hereto.

The net proceeds to the Company, before expenses, from the sale of the 20,000,000 Shares in the Offering are approximately $37.6 million. The Company expects to use the net proceeds of the Offering for general corporate purposes, including business development, in-licensing and acquisitions.

The Offering is expected to close on May 11, 2015, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, and the Shares are registered under the Securities Act pursuant to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-196051).

On May 6, 2015, the Company issued a press release announcing the pricing of the Offering. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto.
