INFORMATION REQUIRED IN REGISTRATION STATEMENT

Item 1. Description of Registrants Securities to be Registered.

On April 25, 2016, Depomed, Inc. (the Company ), entered into the First Amendment to Rights Agreement (the Amendment ) between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as Rights Agent, that amends the Rights Agreement dated July 12, 2015 (the Rights Agreement ) between the Company and the Rights Agent.

The Amendment is intended to permit shareholders that beneficially own 5% or more of the Companys outstanding shares to obtain revocable proxies or consents from other shareholders for the sole purpose of requesting or demanding a special meeting of shareholders of the Company pursuant to Section 600(d) of the California Corporations Code without triggering the Rights Agreement (provided that such proxy or consent does not grant any right or power to vote the underlying securities at such special meeting or any other meeting of shareholders of the Company).

The rights issued pursuant to the Rights Agreement are in all respects subject to and governed by the provisions of the Rights Agreement, as amended. Copies of the Rights Agreement and the amendment are available free of charge from the Company. A copy of the Rights Agreement was previously filed as Exhibit 4.1 to the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 13, 2015. A copy of the amendment to the Rights Agreement has been filed as Exhibit 4.2 to the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 25, 2016.
