Item 1.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously disclosed by Quotient Limited (the “Company”) on its Current Report on Form 8-K filed December 5, 2018 (the “December 5, 2018 8-K”), on December 4, 2018, the Company received the requisite consents from all of the holders (the “Consenting Holders”) of its outstanding $120.0 million aggregate principal amount of 12% Senior Secured Notes due 2023 (the “Notes”) to certain proposed amendments (the “Proposed Amendments”) to the indenture, dated as of October 14, 2016 (the “Indenture”), by and among the Company, the guarantors party thereto (the “Guarantors”) and U.S. Bank National Association, a national banking association, as trustee (the “Trustee”) and collateral agent (the “Collateral Agent”), governing the Notes. Following receipt of the consents, on December 4, 2018, the Company, the Guarantors, the Trustee and the Collateral Agent entered into a first supplemental indenture (the “Supplemental Indenture”) effecting the Proposed Amendments.

The Supplemental Indenture became effective on December 4, 2018, but provided that the Proposed Amendments would not become operative until the Depository Trust Company issued certain proxies formally confirming the Consenting Holders’ ability to act as record holders of the Notes (the “DTC Process”), and the Company paid in full to the Consenting Holders a one-time consent payment (the “Consent Payment”) of $32.50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes and entered into royalty right agreements substantially in the form filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the December 5, 2018 8-K (the “Consent Royalty Right Agreements”) with each of the Consenting Holders.

On December 14, 2018, the DTC Process was completed by all Consenting Holders. On December 18, 2018, the Company paid the Consent Payments in full and entered into the Consent Royalty Right Agreements with each of the Consenting Holders. As a result, the Proposed Amendments became operative on December 18, 2018.

The description of the terms of the Consent Royalty Right Agreements contained in the December 5, 2018 8-K is incorporated herein by reference and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Consent Royalty Right Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the December 5, 2018 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
