QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE 2020 Annual Meeting

  1. Who may vote at the meeting?
  1. Our Board of Directors has set February 25, 2020 as the record date for the annual meeting of stockholders. If you owned shares of our common stock at the close of business on February 25. 2020, you may attend and vote at the meeting. Each stockholder is entitled to one vote for each share of common stock held on all matters to be voted on. As of February 19, 2020, there were 26,828,490 shares of our common stock outstanding and entitled to vote at the meeting.
  1. What is the difference between holding shares as a stockholder of record and as a beneficial owner?
  1. If your shares are registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, Issuer Direct, you are considered, with respect to those shares, a "stockholder of record." If you are a stockholder of record, you have the right to vote in person at the meeting.

If your shares are held in a stock brokerage account or by a bank or other holder of record, you are considered the "beneficial owner" of shares held in street name. In that case, these proxy materials have been forwarded to you by your broker, bank, or other holder of record who is considered, with respect to those shares, the stockholder of record. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, bank, or other holder of record on how to vote your shares by using the voting instruction card included in the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials.

  1. What is the quorum requirement for the meeting?
  1. A majority of our outstanding shares of common stock entitled to vote as of the record date must be present at the meeting in order for us to hold the meeting and conduct business. This is called a quorum. Your shares will be counted as present at the meeting if you:
    • are present and entitled to vote in person at the meeting; or
    • properly submitted a proxy card or voter instruction card in advance of or at the meeting.

If you are present in person or by proxy at the meeting, but abstain from voting on any or all proposals, your shares are still counted as present and entitled to vote. Each proposal listed in this proxy statement identifies the votes needed to approve or ratify the proposed action.

  1. What proposals will be voted on at the meeting?
  1. The six proposals to be voted on at the meeting are as follows:
    1. To elect the seven directors named in the proxy statement to serve until the 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders or until their successors have been elected and qualified;
    2. To ratify the appointment of Plante Moran as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020;
    3. To approve the Say on Pay Proposal;
    4. To approve the Reverse Split Proposal;
    5. To approve the Adjournment Proposal; and
    6. To act upon such other matters as may properly come before the meeting or any adjournment or postponement thereof.

We will also consider any other business that properly comes before the meeting. As of the record date, we are not aware of any other matters to be submitted for consideration at the meeting. If any other matters are properly brought before the meeting, the persons named in the proxy card or voter instruction card will vote the shares they represent using their best judgment.

2

  1. Can I access these proxy materials on the Internet?
  1. Yes. The Notice of Annual Meeting, Proxy Statement, and 2019 Annual Report to Stockholders (which is the 2019 10-K), are available for viewing, printing, and downloading at www.proxyvote.com. Our 2019 10-K is also available under the Investors-SEC Filings section of our website at www.aytubio.comand through the SEC's EDGAR system at http://www.sec.gov. All materials will remain posted on www.proxyvote.comat least until the conclusion of the meeting.
  1. How may I vote my shares in person at the meeting?
  1. If your shares are registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, Issuer Direct, you are considered, with respect to those shares, the stockholder of record. As the stockholder of record, you have the right to vote in person at the meeting. You will need to present a form of personal photo identification in order to be admitted to the meeting. If your shares are held in a brokerage account or by another nominee or trustee, you are considered the beneficial owner of shares held in street name. As the beneficial owner, you are also invited to attend the meeting. Because a beneficial owner is not the stockholder of record, you may not vote these shares in person at the meeting unless you obtain a "legal proxy" from your broker, nominee, or trustee that holds your shares, giving you the right to vote the shares at the meeting.
  1. How can I vote my shares without attending the meeting?
  1. Whether you hold shares as a stockholder of record or beneficially in street name, you may vote without attending the meeting. If your common stock is held by a broker, bank or other nominee, they should send you instructions that you must follow in order to have your shares voted. If you hold shares in your own name, you may vote by proxy in any one of the following ways:
    • Via the Internet by accessing the proxy materials on the secured website https://www.proxyvote.comand following the voting instructions on that website;
    • Via telephone by calling toll free 1-800-690-6903 in the United States and following the recorded instructions; or
    • By completing, dating, signing and returning a proxy card, if you received our proxy materials in the mail.

The Internet and telephone voting procedures are designed to authenticate stockholders' identities by use of a control number to allow stockholders to vote their shares and to confirm that stockholders' instructions have been properly recorded. Voting via the Internet or telephone must be completed by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on March 23, 2020. If stockholders have any questions or need assistance voting their proxy, please call David Green, our Chief Financial Officer, at our headquarters at 1-720-437-6580. Of course, you can always come to the meeting and vote your shares in person. If you submit or return a proxy card without giving specific voting instructions, your shares will be voted as recommended by our Board of Directors.

3

  1. How can I change my vote after submitting it?
  1. If you are a stockholder of record, you can revoke your proxy before your shares are voted at the meeting by:
    • Filing a written notice of revocation bearing a later date than the proxy with our Corporate Secretary either before the meeting or at the meeting at 373 Inverness Parkway, Suite 206, Englewood, Colorado 80112;
    • Duly executing a later-dated proxy relating to the same shares and delivering it to our Corporate Secretary either before or at the meeting and before the taking of the vote, at 373 Inverness Parkway, Suite 206, Englewood, Colorado 80112;
    • Attending the meeting and voting in person (although attendance at the meeting will not in and of itself constitute a revocation of a proxy); or
    • If you voted by telephone or via the Internet, voting again by the same means prior to 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on March 23, 2020 (your latest telephone or internet vote, as applicable, will be counted and all earlier votes will be disregarded).

If you are a beneficial owner of shares, you may submit new voting instructions by contacting your bank, broker, or other holder of record. You may also vote in person at the meeting if you obtain a legal proxy from them as described in the answers to the two previous questions.

  1. Where can I find the voting results of the meeting?
  1. We will announce preliminary voting results at the annual meeting. We will publish the results in a Form 8-K filed with the SEC within four business days of the annual meeting.
  1. For how long can I access the proxy materials on the Internet?
  1. The Notice of Annual Meeting, Proxy Statement and 2019 10-K are also available, free of charge, in PDF and HTML format under the Investors-SEC Filings section of our website at www.aytubio.comand will remain posted on this website at least until the conclusion of the meeting.

PROXY STATEMENT

ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS

MARCH 24, 2020

This proxy statement has been prepared by the management of Aytu BioScience, Inc. "We," "our" and the "Company" each refers to Aytu BioScience,

Inc.

In accordance with the rules of the SEC, instead of mailing a printed copy of our proxy materials to each stockholder of record, we are furnishing proxy materials, including the notice, this proxy statement, our 2019 Annual Report to Stockholders, including financial statements, and a proxy card for the meeting, by providing access to them on the Internet to save printing costs and benefit the environment. These materials will first be available on the Internet on or about [•], 2020. We will mail a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials on or about March [•], 2020 to our stockholders of record and beneficial owners as of February 25, 2020, the record date for the meeting. This proxy statement and the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials contain instructions for accessing and reviewing our proxy materials on the Internet and for voting by proxy over the Internet. If you prefer to receive printed copies of our proxy materials, the Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials contains instructions on how to request the materials by mail. You will not receive printed copies of the proxy materials unless you request them. If you elect to receive the materials by mail, you may also vote by proxy on the proxy card or voter instruction card that you will receive in response to your request.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT SOLICITATION VOTING AND ATTENDING

Who Can Vote

You are entitled to attend the meeting and vote your common stock if you held shares as of the close of business on February 25, 2020. As of February 25, 2020, there were [•] shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote.

Counting Votes

Consistent with state law and our bylaws, the presence, in person or by proxy, of at least a majority of the outstanding shares of our capital stock entitled to vote at the meeting will constitute a quorum for purposes of voting on a particular matter at the meeting. Once a share is represented for any purpose at the meeting, it is deemed present for quorum purposes for the remainder of the meeting and any adjournment thereof unless a new record date is set for the adjournment. Shares held of record by stockholders or their nominees who do not vote by proxy or attend the meeting in person will not be considered present or represented and will not be counted in determining the presence of a quorum. Signed proxies that withhold authority or reflect abstentions and "broker non- votes" will be counted for purposes of determining whether a quorum is present. When a broker, bank, or other nominee has discretion to vote on one or more proposals at a meeting but does not have discretion to vote on other matters at the meeting, the broker, bank, or other nominee will inform the inspector of election that it does not have the authority to vote on the "non-discretionary" matters with respect to shares held for beneficial owners which did not provide voting instructions with respect to the "non-discretionary" matters. This situation is commonly referred to as a "broker non-vote." Broker non-votes will be counted for purposes of establishing a quorum to conduct business at the meeting, but not for determining the number of shares voted FOR, AGAINST, or ABSTAIN with respect to any matters.

5

Assuming the presence of a quorum at the meeting:

  • The election of directors will be determined by a plurality of the votes cast at the meeting. This means that the seven nominees receiving the highest number of "FOR" votes will be elected as directors. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will have no effect on this proposal.
  • The ratification of the appointment of our independent registered public accounting firm requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast at the meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will have no effect on this proposal.
  • The approval of the Say-on-Pay Proposal will require the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast at the meeting. Abstentions and broker non- votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will have no effect on this proposal.
  • The approval of the Reverse Split Proposal will require the affirmative vote of a majority of the total outstanding shares of our common stock as of the record date. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will effectively be a vote against this proposal.
  • The approval of the Adjournment Proposal will require the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast at the meeting. Abstentions and broker non- votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will have no effect on this proposal.

We strongly encourage you to vote your shares promptly. This action ensures that your shares will be voted in accordance with your wishes at the meeting.

Attending the Annual Meeting

If you are a holder of record and plan to attend the annual meeting, please bring a photo identification to confirm your identity. If you are a beneficial owner of common stock held by a bank or broker, i.e., in "street name," you will need proof of ownership to be admitted to the meeting. A recent brokerage statement or letter from a bank or broker are examples of proof of ownership. If you want to vote in person your common stock held in street name, you must get a proxy in your name from the registered holder.

PROPOSAL NO. 1 - ELECTION OF DIRECTORS

Our bylaws provide that the number of directors constituting our Board of Directors shall be determined solely and exclusively by resolution duly adopted from time to time by our Board. There are seven directors presently serving on our Board, and the number of directors to be elected at this annual meeting is seven. Our full Board has proposed the seven nominees listed below (who are our current directors) for re-election to the Board for a one-year term.

Our Board has determined that, under NASDAQ rules, all of our directors are independent, except for Mr. Disbrow, Mr. Mehta and Mr. Boyd. In addition to the specific bars to independence set forth in the NASDAQ rules, we also consider whether a director or his affiliates have provided any services to, worked for or received any compensation from us or any of our subsidiaries in the past three years in particular. In addition, none of the nominees are related by blood, marriage or adoption to any other nominee or any of our executive officers, except that Joshua Disbrow and Jarrett Disbrow, our Executive Vice President, Marketing & Market Access, are brothers.

Policy on Pre-Approval of Services of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

Our Audit Committee has responsibility for appointing, setting compensation and overseeing the work of the independent registered public accounting firm. In recognition of this responsibility, the Audit Committee pre-approves all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by the independent registered public accounting firm, although it has no written policy on this matter. Prior to engagement of the independent registered public accounting firm for the following year's audit, management will submit to the Audit Committee for approval a description of services expected to be rendered during that year for each of following four categories of services:

Audit services include audit work performed in audit of the annual financial statements, review of quarterly financial statements, reading of annual, quarterly and current reports, as well as work that generally only the independent auditor can reasonably be expected to provide.

Audit-related services are for assurance and related services that are traditionally performed by the independent auditor, including the provisions of consents and comfort letters in connection with the filing of registration statements, due diligence related to mergers and acquisitions and special procedures required to meet certain regulatory requirements.

Tax services consist principally of assistance with tax compliance and reporting, as well as certain tax planning consultations.

Other services are those associated with services not captured in the other categories. We generally do not request such services from our independent

auditor.

Prior to the engagement, the Audit Committee pre-approves these services by category of service. The fees are budgeted, and the Audit Committee requires the independent registered public accounting firm and management to report actual fees versus the budget periodically throughout the year by category of service. During the year, circumstances may arise when it may become necessary to engage the independent registered public accounting firm for additional services not contemplated in the original pre-approval. In those instances, the Audit Committee requires specific pre-approval before engaging the independent registered public accounting firm.

Vote Required

Ratification of the appointment of Plante Moran as our independent registered public accounting firm requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast at the meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will have no effect on this proposal.

Recommendation

The Board unanimously recommends that stockholders vote FOR the ratification of the appointment of Plante Moran as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020.

Unless marked otherwise, proxies received will be voted " FOR" the ratification of the appointment of Plante Moran as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020.

PROPOSAL NO. 3 - SAY ON PAY PROPOSAL

As required under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, or Dodd-Frank Act, the Board of Directors is submitting a "say on pay" proposal for stockholder consideration. While the vote on executive compensation is nonbinding and solely advisory in nature, the Board values the opinion of our stockholders and will review and consider the voting results.

Our executive officers are compensated based on performance, and in a manner consistent with our strategy, competitive practice, sound corporate governance principles, and Company and stockholder interests. We believe our compensation program is strongly aligned with the long-term interests of the Company and our stockholders. Compensation of our executive officers is designed to enable us to attract and retain talented and experienced senior executives to lead our Company successfully in a competitive environment.

The compensation of the Named Executive Officers is described on pages 25 - 30 of this proxy statement.

We are asking stockholders to vote on the following resolution:

"RESOLVED, that the stockholders of Aytu BioScience, Inc. approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation paid to the Named Executive Officers as disclosed pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S-K, including the Summary Compensation Table for fiscal 2019, and the other related tables and disclosures."

As indicated above, the stockholder vote on this resolution will not be binding on our Company or the Board of Directors and will not be construed as overruling or determining any decision by us or by the Board. The vote will not be construed to create or imply any change to our fiduciary duties or those of the Board, or to create or imply any additional fiduciary duties for our Company or the Board.

Vote Required

The affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the shares of our common stock as of the record date present or represented at the meeting is required to approve the compensation of our Named Executive Officers, as disclosed in this proxy statement.

Recommendation

The Board of Directors unanimously recommends stockholders vote, on an advisory basis, FOR the Company's executive compensation

13

PROPOSAL NO. 4 - REVERSE SPLIT PROPOSAL

The Board of Directors is recommending that the Company's shareholders approve an amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation to permit the Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding common stock, as described below (the "Reverse Split").

The form of the amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding common stock will be substantially as set forth on Appendix B. Approval of the proposal would permit (but not require) our Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding common stock by a ratio of any whole number up to 1-for-20, with the exact ratio to be set at a whole number within this range as determined by our Board of Directors in its sole discretion, provided that the Board of Directors determines to effect the Reverse Split and such amendment is filed with the Secretary of State of Delaware no later than one year after the date of our annual meeting. We believe that enabling our Board of Directors to set the ratio within the stated range will provide us with the flexibility to implement the Reverse Split in a manner designed to maximize the anticipated benefits for our stockholders. In determining a ratio, if any, following the receipt of stockholder approval, our Board of Directors may consider, among other things, factors such as:

  • the historical trading price and trading volume of our common stock;
  • the number of shares of our common stock outstanding;
  • the then-prevailing trading price and trading volume of our common stock and the anticipated impact of the Reverse Split on the trading market for our common stock;
  • the continued listing requirements of the NASDAQ Capital Market;

14

  • the anticipated impact of a particular ratio on our ability to reduce administrative and transactional costs; and
  • prevailing general market and economic conditions.

Our Board of Directors reserves the right to elect to abandon the Reverse Split, including any or all proposed reverse stock split ratios, if it determines, in its sole discretion, that the Reverse Split is no longer in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.

Depending on the ratio for the Reverse Split determined by our Board of Directors, no less than two and no more than twenty shares of existing common stock, as determined by our Board of Directors, will be combined into one share of common stock. Holders will receive, in lieu of any fractional share, the number of shares rounded up to the next whole number. The amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation to effect a reverse stock split, if any, will include only the Reverse Split ratio determined by our Board of Directors to be in the best interests of our stockholders and all of the other proposed amendments at different ratios will be abandoned.

Background and Reasons for the Reverse Split; Potential Consequences of the Reverse Split

As of the date of this proxy statement, we are not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a) (2) requires that companies listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market maintain a minimum closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share.

Under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A), the Company has a 180 calendar day grace period to regain compliance by meeting the continued listing standard. The continued listing standard will be met if the Company's common stock has a minimum closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days during the 180 calendar day grace period.

The primary purpose of the Reverse Split is to increase the market price of our common stock so that we can meet the minimum bid price rule requirements of the NASDAQ Capital Market. As of February 19, 2020, the last reported closing price of the Company's common stock was $0.73. A delisting of the Company's common stock may materially and adversely affect a holder's ability to dispose of, or to obtain accurate quotations as to the market value, of, the common stock. In addition, any delisting may cause the common stock to be subject to "penny stock" regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Under such regulations, broker-dealers are required to, among other things, comply with disclosure and special suitability determinations prior to the sale of shares of common stock. If the Company's common stock becomes subject to these regulations, the market price of the common stock and the liquidity thereof could be materially and adversely affected. Reducing the number of outstanding shares of our common stock should, absent other factors, increase the per share market price of our common stock, although we cannot provide any assurance that our minimum bid price would remain following the Reverse Split over the minimum bid price requirement of the NASDAQ Capital Market. In addition to increasing the market price of our common stock, the Reverse Split would also reduce certain of our costs, as discussed below. Accordingly, for these and other reasons discussed below, we believe that approval of the Reverse Split is in the Company's and our stockholders' best interests.

Additionally, we believe that the Reverse Split will make our common stock more attractive to a broader range of institutional and other investors, as we have been advised that the current market price of our common stock may affect its acceptability to certain institutional investors, professional investors and other members of the investing public. Many brokerage houses and institutional investors have internal policies and practices that either prohibit them from investing in low-priced stocks or tend to discourage individual brokers from recommending low-priced stocks to their customers. In addition, some of those policies and practices may function to make the processing of trades in low-priced stocks economically unattractive to brokers. Moreover, because brokers' commissions on low-priced stocks generally represent a higher percentage of the stock price than commissions on higher-priced stocks, the current average price per share of common stock can result in individual stockholders paying transaction costs representing a higher percentage of their total share value than would be the case if the share price were substantially higher. We believe that the Reverse Split will make our common stock a more attractive and cost effective investment for many investors, which will enhance the liquidity of the holders of our common stock.

15

Reducing the number of outstanding shares of our common stock through the Reverse Split is intended, absent other factors, to increase the per share market price of our common stock. However, other factors, such as our financial results, market conditions and the market perception of our business may adversely affect the market price of our common stock. As a result, there can be no assurance that the Reverse Split, if completed, will result in the intended benefits described above, that the market price of our common stock will increase following the Reverse Split or that the market price of our common stock will not decrease in the future. Additionally, we cannot assure you that the market price per share of our common stock after the Reverse Split will increase in proportion to the reduction in the number of shares of our common stock outstanding before the Reverse Split. Accordingly, the total market capitalization of our common stock after the Reverse Split may be lower than the total market capitalization before the Reverse Split.

We cannot be sure that our share price will comply with the requirements for continued listing of our shares of common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market in the future or that we will comply with the other continued listing requirements. If our shares of common stock are delisted from the NASDAQ Capital Market, we believe that our shares of common stock would likely be eligible to be quoted on the OTCQB, an inter-dealer electronic quotation and trading system operated by OTC Markets Group. These markets are generally considered not to be as efficient as, and not as broad as, the NASDAQ Capital Market. Selling our shares of common stock on these markets could be more difficult because smaller quantities of shares would likely be bought and sold, and transactions could be delayed. In addition, in the event our shares of common stock are delisted, broker-dealers would have certain regulatory burdens imposed upon them, which may discourage broker-dealers from effecting transactions in our common stock, further limiting the liquidity of our common stock. These factors could result in lower prices and larger spreads in the bid and ask prices for our common stock.

A delisting from the NASDAQ Capital Market and continued or further declines in our share price could also greatly impair our ability to raise additional necessary capital through equity or debt financing, and could significantly increase the ownership dilution to stockholders caused by our issuing equity in financing or other transactions.

The market price of our common stock will also be affected by our performance and other factors, some of which are unrelated to the number of shares outstanding. If the Reverse Split is effected and the market price of our common stock declines, the percentage decline as an absolute number and as a percentage of our overall market capitalization may be greater than would occur in the absence of a reverse split. Furthermore, the liquidity of our common stock could be adversely affected by the reduced number of shares that would be outstanding after the Reverse Split.

16

Procedure for Implementing the Reverse Split

The Reverse Split would become effective upon the filing of a certificate of amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of Delaware. The exact timing of the filing of the certificate of amendment that will effect the Reverse Split will be determined by our Board of Directors based on its evaluation as to when such action will be the most advantageous to the Company and our stockholders. In addition, our Board of Directors reserves the right, notwithstanding stockholder approval and without further action by the stockholders, to elect not to proceed with the Reverse Split if, at any time prior to filing the amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation, our Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, determines that it is no longer in our best interest and the best interests of our stockholders to proceed with the Reverse Split. If a certificate of amendment effecting the Reverse Split has not been filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware within one year after the 2020 annual meeting, our Board of Directors will abandon the Reverse Split.

Effect of the Reverse Split on Holders of Outstanding Common Stock

Depending on the ratio for the Reverse Split determined by our Board of Directors, a minimum of two and a maximum of twenty shares of existing common stock will be combined into one new share of common stock. Based on 26,828,490 shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of February 19, 2020, immediately following the Reverse Split the Company would have approximately 13,414,245 shares of common stock issued and outstanding (without giving effect to rounding for fractional shares) if the ratio for the Reverse Split is 1-for-2, and 1,341,425 shares of common stock issued and outstanding (without giving effect to rounding for fractional shares) if the ratio for the Reverse Split is 1-for-20. Any other ratio selected within such range would result in a number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding following the transaction between 1,341,425 and 13,414,245 shares.

The actual number of shares issued after giving effect to the Reverse Split, if implemented, will depend on the reverse stock split ratio that is ultimately determined by our Board of Directors.

The Reverse Split will affect all holders of our common stock uniformly and will not affect any stockholder's percentage ownership interest in the Company, except that as described below in "Fractional Shares," record holders of common stock otherwise entitled to a fractional share, as a result of the Reverse Split, will be rounded up to the next whole number. In addition, the Reverse Split will not affect any stockholder's proportionate voting power.

The Reverse Split may result in some stockholders owning "odd lots" of less than 100 shares of common stock. Odd lot shares may be more difficult to sell, and brokerage commissions and other costs of transactions in odd lots are generally somewhat higher than the costs of transactions in "round lots" of even multiples of 100 shares.

Following the Reverse Split, our common stock will have new Committee on Uniform Securities Identification Procedures (CUSIP) numbers, which is a number used to identify our equity securities, and stock certificates with the older CUSIP numbers will need to be exchanged for stock certificates with the new CUSIP numbers by following the procedures described below. After the Reverse Split, we will continue to be subject to the periodic reporting and other requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act").

No Going Private Transaction

Notwithstanding the decrease in the number of outstanding shares following the proposed Reverse Split, our Board does not intend for this transaction to be the first step in a "going private transaction" within the meaning of Rule 13e-3 of the Exchange Act.

Authorized Shares of Common Stock

The Reverse Split will not affect the number of authorized shares of the Company's common stock under the Company's Certificate of Incorporation. Because the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock will be reduced under the Reverse Split by the ratio as determined by the board, the number of authorized but unissued shares will increase. The Reverse Split will not have an effect on the number of authorized shares of preferred stock, which would remain at 50,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001. While we currently have no specific understandings, arrangements or agreements with respect to any future actions that would require us to issue a material amount of the additional new shares of our common stock, in light of our potential need for additional financing in the future, our board is requesting stockholders to provide the flexibility to issue additional shares in the future if and as needed.

17

Beneficial Holders of Common Stock (i.e. stockholders who hold in street name)

Upon the implementation of the Reverse Split, we intend to treat shares held by stockholders through a bank, broker, custodian or other nominee in the same manner as registered stockholders whose shares are registered in their names. Banks, brokers, custodians or other nominees will be instructed to effect the Reverse Split for their beneficial holders holding our common stock in street name. However, these banks, brokers, custodians or other nominees may have different procedures than registered stockholders for processing the Reverse Split. Stockholders who hold shares of our common stock with a bank, broker, custodian or other nominee and who have any questions in this regard are encouraged to contact their banks, brokers, custodians or other nominees.

Registered "Book-Entry" Holders of Common Stock (i.e. stockholders that are registered on the transfer agent's books and records but do not hold stock certificates)

Certain of our registered holders of common stock may hold some or all of their shares electronically in book-entry form with the transfer agent. These stockholders do not have stock certificates evidencing their ownership of the common stock. They are, however, provided with a statement reflecting the number of shares registered in their accounts.

Stockholders who hold shares electronically in book-entry form with the transfer agent will not need to take action (the exchange will be automatic) to receive whole shares of post-reverse split common stock.

Holders of Certificated Shares of Common Stock

Stockholders holding shares of our common stock in certificated form will be sent a transmittal letter by our transfer agent after the Reverse Split. The letter of transmittal will contain instructions on how a stockholder should surrender his, her or its certificate(s) representing shares of our common stock (the "Old Certificates") to the transfer agent in exchange for certificates representing the appropriate number of whole shares of post-reverse split common stock (the "New Certificates"). No New Certificates will be issued to a stockholder until such stockholder has surrendered all Old Certificates, together with a properly completed and executed letter of transmittal, to the transfer agent. No stockholder will be required to pay a transfer or other fee to exchange his, her or its Old Certificates. Stockholders will then receive a New Certificate(s) representing the number of whole shares of common stock that they are entitled as a result of the Reverse Split, subject to the treatment of fractional shares described below. Until surrendered, we will deem outstanding Old Certificates held by stockholders to be cancelled and only to represent the number of whole shares of post-reverse split common stock to which these stockholders are entitled. Any Old Certificates submitted for exchange, whether because of a sale, transfer or other disposition of stock, will automatically be exchanged for New Certificates. If an Old Certificate has a restrictive legend on the back of the Old Certificate(s), the New Certificate will be issued with the same restrictive legends that are on the back of the Old Certificate(s).

The Company expects that our transfer agent will act as exchange agent for purposes of implementing the exchange of stock certificates. No service charges will be payable by holders of shares of common stock in connection with the exchange of certificates. All of such expenses will be borne by the Company.

STOCKHOLDERS SHOULD NOT DESTROY ANY STOCK CERTIFICATE(S) AND SHOULD NOT SUBMIT ANY STOCK CERTIFICATE(S) UNTIL REQUESTED TO DO SO.

Fractional Shares

The Company will not issue fractional shares in connection with the reverse stock split. Therefore, the Company will not issue certificates representing fractional shares. Stockholders will receive, in lieu of any fractional share, the number of shares rounded up to the next whole number.

The ownership of a fractional share interest following the Reverse Split will not give the holder any voting, dividend or other rights, except to receive the number of shares rounded up to the next whole number, as described above.

18

Effect of the Reverse Split on Employee Plans, Options, Restricted Stock Awards and Units, Warrants, and Convertible or Exchangeable Securities

Based upon the reverse stock split ratio determined by the Board of Directors, proportionate adjustments will generally be required to be made to the per share exercise or conversion price and the number of shares issuable upon the exercise or conversion of all outstanding options, warrants, convertible or exchangeable securities entitling the holders to purchase, exchange for, or convert into, shares of common stock. This would result in approximately the same aggregate price being required to be paid under such options, warrants, convertible or exchangeable securities upon exercise or conversion, and approximately the same value of shares of common stock being delivered upon such exercise, exchange or conversion, immediately following the Reverse Split as was the case immediately preceding the Reverse Split. The number of shares deliverable upon settlement or vesting of restricted stock awards will be similarly adjusted.

Accounting Matters

The amendment to the Company's Certificate of Incorporation will not affect the par value of our common stock per share, which will remain $0.0001 par value per share. As a result, following the Reverse Split, the stated capital attributable to common stock and the additional paid-in capital account on our balance sheet will not change due to the Reverse Split. Reported per share net income or loss will be higher because there will be fewer shares of common stock outstanding.

Certain Federal Income Tax Consequences of the Reverse Split

The following summary describes certain material U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Split to holders of our common stock.

Unless otherwise specifically indicated herein, this summary addresses the tax consequences only to a beneficial owner of our common stock that is a citizen or individual resident of the United States, a corporation organized in or under the laws of the United States or any state thereof or the District of Columbia or otherwise subject to U.S. federal income taxation on a net income basis in respect of our common stock (a "U.S. holder"). A trust may also be a U.S. holder if (1) a U.S. court is able to exercise primary supervision over administration of such trust and one or more U.S. persons have the authority to control all substantial decisions of the trust or (2) it has a valid election in place to be treated as a U.S. person. An estate whose income is subject to U.S. federal income taxation regardless of its source may also be a U.S. holder. This summary does not address all of the tax consequences that may be relevant to any particular investor, including tax considerations that arise from rules of general application to all taxpayers or to certain classes of taxpayers or that are generally assumed to be known by investors. This summary also does not address the tax consequences to (i) persons that may be subject to special treatment under U.S. federal income tax law, such as banks, insurance companies, thrift institutions, regulated investment companies, real estate investment trusts, tax-exempt organizations, U.S. expatriates, persons subject to the alternative minimum tax, traders in securities that elect to mark to market and dealers in securities or currencies,

  1. persons that hold our common stock as part of a position in a "straddle" or as part of a "hedging," "conversion" or other integrated investment transaction for federal income tax purposes, or (iii) persons that do not hold our common stock as "capital assets" (generally, property held for investment).

If a partnership (or other entity classified as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes) is the beneficial owner of our common stock, the U.S. federal income tax treatment of a partner in the partnership will generally depend on the status of the partner and the activities of the partnership. Partnerships that hold our common stock, and partners in such partnerships, should consult their own tax advisors regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Split.

This summary is based on the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, U.S. Treasury regulations, administrative rulings and judicial authority, all as in effect as of the date of this proxy statement. Subsequent developments in U.S. federal income tax law, including changes in law or differing interpretations, which may be applied retroactively, could have a material effect on the U.S. federal income tax consequences of the Reverse Split.

PLEASE CONSULT YOUR OWN TAX ADVISOR REGARDING THE U.S. FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL, AND FOREIGN INCOME AND OTHER TAX CONSEQUENCES OF THE REVERSE SPLIT IN YOUR PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCES UNDER THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE AND THE LAWS OF ANY OTHER TAXING JURISDICTION.

19

U.S. Holders

The Reverse Split should be treated as a recapitalization for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Therefore, a stockholder generally will not recognize gain or loss on the Reverse Split. The aggregate tax basis of the post-split shares received will be equal to the aggregate tax basis of the pre-split shares exchanged therefore, and the holding period of the post-split shares received will include the holding period of the pre-split shares exchanged. No gain or loss will be recognized by us as a result of the reverse stock split.

What dilutive effect will the Reverse Split have?

Following the effective time of the Reverse Split, there will be an increase in the number of authorized but unissued shares of our common stock. Additional shares of common stock, if issued, will have a dilutive effect upon the percentage of equity of the Company owned by our present stockholders.

Certain Risks Associated with the Reverse Split

Our Board of Directors believes that the Reverse Split will increase the price level of our shares of common stock and, as a result, may enable the Company to regain compliance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5550(a)(2) . There are a number of risks associated with the Reverse Split, including as follow:

  • The Board cannot predict the effect of the Reverse Split upon the market price for our shares of Common Stock, and the history of similar reverse stock splits for companies in like circumstances has varied. The Company has experienced a significant decline in its market price in each of its last reverse stock splits and may likely experience a similar decline in market price in relation to this Reverse Split as well.
  • The market price per share of Common Stock after the Reverse Split may not rise in proportion to the reduction in the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding resulting from the Reverse Split. If the market price of our shares of Common Stock declines after the Reverse Split, the percentage decline as an absolute number and as a percentage of the Company's overall market capitalization may be greater than would occur in the absence of the Reverse Split. Accordingly, the total market capitalization of our Common Stock after the Reverse Split may be lower than the total market capitalization before the Reverse Split. Moreover, in the future, the market price of our Common Stock following the Reverse Split may not exceed or remain higher than the market price prior to the Reverse Split.
  • The market price of our shares of Common Stock may also be affected by the Company's performance and other factors, the effect of which the Board cannot predict.
  • Although our Board of Directors believes that a higher stock price may help generate the interest of new investors, the Reverse Split may not result in a per-share price that will successfully attract certain types of investors and such resulting share price may not satisfy the investing guidelines of institutional investors or investment funds. Further, other factors, such as our financial results, market conditions and the market perception of our business, may adversely affect the interest of new investors in the shares of our Common Stock. As a result, the trading liquidity of the shares of our Common Stock may not improve as a result of the Reverse Split and there can be no assurance that the Reverse Split, if completed, will result in the intended benefits described above.
  • The Reverse Split could be viewed negatively by the market and other factors, such as those described above, may adversely affect the market price of the shares of our Common Stock. Consequently, the market price per post-Reverse Split shares may not increase in proportion to the reduction of the number of shares of our Common Stock outstanding before the implementation of the Reverse Split. Accordingly, the total market capitalization of our shares of Common Stock after the Reverse Split may be lower than the total market capitalization before the Reverse Split.
  • In the future, the market price of the shares of our Common Stock following the Reverse Split may not exceed or remain higher than the market price of the shares of our Common Stock prior to the Reverse Split.
  • If the Reverse Split is effected and the market price of the shares of our Common Stock then declines, the percentage decline may be greater than would occur in the absence of the Reverse Split. Additionally, the liquidity of the shares of our Common Stock could be adversely affected by the reduced number of shares that would be outstanding after the implementation of the Reverse Split.
  • The Reverse Split may result in some stockholders owning "odd lots" of less than 100 shares of Common Stock. Odd lot shares may be more difficult to sell, and brokerage commissions and other costs of transactions in odd lots are generally somewhat higher than the costs of transactions in "round lots" of even multiples of 100 shares.

Vote Required

Approval of the Reverse Split requires the receipt of the affirmative vote of a majority of our outstanding shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of the record date. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will effectively be a vote against this proposal.

Recommendation

Our Board of Directors unanimously recommends that stockholders vote FOR the Reverse Split Proposal.

20

PROPOSAL NO. 5 - ADJOURNMENT PROPOSAL

Overview

In order to ensure that approval of the Reverse Split Proposal is obtained, the Board wishes to seek approval of a proposal to adjourn the Annual Meeting, if necessary, to solicit more votes in favor of the Reverse Split Proposal.

Vote Required

Approval of the Adjournment Proposal requires the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the votes cast at the meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes, if any, are not treated as votes cast, and therefore will have no effect on this proposal.

Recommendation

The Board recommends that stockholders vote "FOR" the Adjournment Proposal.

Unless marked otherwise, proxies received will be voted " FOR" the approval of the Adjournment Proposal.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Information about the Board of Directors

Board Composition

Our Board of Directors currently consists of six members. Directors elected at this meeting and each subsequent annual meeting will be elected for one- year terms or until their successors are duly elected and qualified.

Joshua Disbrow has served as our Chief Executive Officer since April 2015 and as the Chairman of our Board since July 2016. Our Board does not currently have a policy on whether the same person should serve as both the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board or, if the roles are separate, whether the Chairman should be selected from the non-employee directors or should be an employee. The Board believes that it should have the flexibility to make these determinations at any given point in time in the way that it believes best to provide appropriate leadership for us at that time.

Selection of Nominees for our Board of Directors

To be considered as a director nominee, an individual must have, among other attributes: high personal and professional ethics, integrity and values; commitment to our Company and stockholders; an inquisitive and objective perspective and mature judgment; availability to perform all Board and committee responsibilities; and independence. In addition to these minimum requirements, our Board will evaluate whether the nominee's skills are complementary to the existing directors' skills and our Board's need for operational, management, financial, international, industry-specific or other expertise. We do not have a specific written policy with regard to the consideration of diversity in identifying director nominees. We focus on identifying nominees with experience, qualifications, attributes and skills to work with the other directors to serve the long-term interests of our stockholders. All those matters being equal, we do and will consider diversity a positive additional characteristic in potential nominees.

In addition to candidates submitted by Board members, director nominees recommended by stockholders will be considered. Stockholder recommendations must be made in accordance with the procedures described in the section titled "Stockholder Proposals" below and will receive the same consideration that other nominees receive. All nominees are evaluated by our Board to determine whether they meet the minimum qualifications and whether they will satisfy our Board's needs for specific expertise at that time.

No stockholder has nominated anyone for election as a director at this annual meeting.

Certain Related Person Transactions

Below we describe transactions since July 1, 2018 to which we have been or are a participant, including currently proposed transactions, in which the amount involved in the transaction exceeds $120,000 and in which any of our directors, executive officers or beneficial holders of more than 5% of any class of our capital stock, or any immediate family member of, or person sharing the household with any of these individuals, had or has a direct or indirect material interest.

Armistice Warrant Exchange

On November 29, 2018, Aytu issued a $5.0 million promissory note (the "Note") to Armistice Capital Master Fund Ltd. ("Armistice"). The Note was collateralized by the future revenue stream from the products licensed to the Company under the Tris License Agreement between the Company and TRIS. The Note carried an annual interest rate of 8% and had a three-year term with principal and interest payable at maturity. The Company had the right, in its sole discretion, to repay the Note without penalty at any time after December 29, 2018. During the quarter ended June 30, 2019, the Company and Armistice agreed to, and the shareholders approved to, exchange the entire Note for (i) 3.2 million shares of common stock, (ii) 2.75 million of shares of non-voting Series E preferred stock, and (iii) 4.4 million warrants.

TRIS License Agreement

On November 2, 2018, we entered into a License, Development, Manufacturing and Supply Agreement (the "Agreement") with TRIS Pharma, Inc. ("TRIS"). Pursuant to the Agreement, TRIS granted to the Company an exclusive license in the United States related to Tuzistra XR. In addition, TRIS has agreed to grant an exclusive license in the United States related to a complementary antitussive referred to as "CCP-08" (together with Tuzistra XR, the "Products") for which marketing approval has been sought by TRIS under a New Drug Application filed with the FDA. As consideration for the license granted, the Company made an upfront cash payment to TRIS and also issued to TRIS shares of Series D Convertible Preferred Stock. Additionally, the Company will pay TRIS milestone payments and certain royalty fees through the term for Tuzistra XR and CCP-08. The Agreement may be terminated by either the Company or TRIS on the occurrence of a material breach of the Agreement and will terminate according to its terms upon expiration of the final royalty payment obligation to TRIS. Mr. Mehta, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of TRIS is a member of our Board of Directors.

Our executive officers are reimbursed by us for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with activities conducted on our behalf. Executives are reimbursed for business expenses directly related to Aytu business activities, such as travel, primarily for business development as we grow and expand our product lines. On average, each executive incurs between $1,000 to $3,000 of out-of-pocket business expenses each month. The executive management team meets weekly and determines which activities they will work on based upon what we determine will be the most beneficial to our Company and our shareholders. No interest is paid on amounts reimbursed to the executives.

In July 2016, our Board of Directors approved a common stock option repricing program whereby previously granted and unexercised options held by our then current employees, consultants and directors with exercise prices above $120.00 per share were repriced on a one-for-one basis to $64.60 per share which represented the per share fair value of our common stock as of the date of the repricing. There was no other modification to the vesting schedule of the previously issued options. As a result, 15,803 unexercised options originally granted to purchase common stock at prices ranging from $134.40 to $362.40 per share were repriced under this program.

In March 2017, our Board of Directors approved a common stock option repricing program whereby all previously granted and unexercised options were repriced on a one-for-one basis to $16.40 per share which represented the closing price of our common stock as of the date of the repricing. There was no other modification to the vesting schedule of the previously issued options. As a result, 36,834 unexercised options originally granted to purchase common stock at prices ranging from $64.60 to $1,051.20 per share were repriced under this program.

Pursuant to the employment agreements, in the event the officer's employment is terminated without Cause by us or the officer terminates his employment with Good Reason, we will be obligated to pay him any accrued compensation and a lump sum payment. In the case of Joshua and Jarrett Disbrow, the lump sum payment is equal to two times the executive's base salary in effect at the date of termination, as well as continued participation in the health and welfare plans for up to two years.

"Good Reason" with respect to the agreements means, without the officer's written consent, there is:

  • a material reduction in the officer's overall responsibilities or authority, or scope of duties (it being understood that the occurrence of a Change in Control shall not, by itself, necessarily constitute a reduction in the officer's responsibilities or authority);

  • a material change in the principal geographic location at which the officer must perform his services.

31

"Cause" with respect to the agreements means:

  • conviction of, or entry of a plea of guilty to, or entry of a plea of nolo contendere with respect to, any crime, other than a traffic violation or a misdemeanor;
  • willful malfeasance or willful misconduct by the officer in connection with his employment;
  • gross negligence in performing any of his duties;
  • willful and deliberate violation of any of our policies;
  • unintended but material breach of any written policy applicable to all employees adopted by us which is not cured to the reasonable satisfaction of the board;

Pursuant to the employment agreements, in the event of a Change in Control of us, all stock options, restricted stock and other stock-based grants granted or may be granted in the future by us to the officers will immediately vest and become exercisable.

"Change in Control" means: the occurrence of any of the following events:

  • the acquisition by any individual, entity, or group (within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) or 14(d)(2) of the Exchange Act) (the "Acquiring Person"), other than us, or any of our Subsidiaries, of beneficial ownership (within the meaning of Rule 13d-3- promulgated under the Exchange Act) of 50% or more of the combined voting power or economic interests of the then outstanding voting securities of us entitled to vote generally in the election of directors (excluding any issuance of securities by us in a transaction or series of transactions made principally for bona fide equity financing purposes); or
  • the acquisition of us by another entity by means of any transaction or series of related transactions to which we are party (including, without limitation, any stock acquisition, reorganization, merger or consolidation but excluding any issuance of securities by us in a transaction or series of transactions made principally for bona fide equity financing purposes) other than a transaction or series of related transactions in which the holders of the voting securities of us outstanding immediately prior to such transaction or series of related transactions retain, immediately after such transaction or series of related transactions, as a result of shares in us held by such holders prior to such transaction or series of related transactions, at least a majority of the total voting power represented by the outstanding voting securities of us or such other surviving or resulting entity (or if we or such other surviving or resulting entity is a wholly-owned subsidiary immediately following such acquisition, its parent); or
  • the sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of us in one transaction or series of related transactions.

Our only obligation to Joshua Disbrow and Jarrett Disbrow had a Change in Control occurred as of June 30, 2019, would have been the acceleration of the vesting of all options held by them at that date. On June 30, 2019, the closing price of our common stock was below the exercise price for all of the options held by Joshua Disbrow and Jarrett Disbrow and therefore there would have been no economic benefit to them upon the acceleration of vesting of those options.

David A. Green's employment agreement may be terminated by the Company with or without Cause, as defined in the employment agreement, or as a result of employee's Disability, as defined in the employment agreement, or by Mr. Green with or without Good Reason, as defined in the employment agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the employment agreement, if the Company ends the term for Cause, if Mr. Green resigns for reasons other than Good Reason, or if Mr. Green dies while employed by the Company, he will be entitled to his Accrued Compensation, as defined in the employment agreement. In the event the Company terminates Mr. Green's employment without Cause, or because of Disability, or Mr. Green terminates employment with Good Reason, he shall be entitled to his Accrued Compensation, as defined in the employment agreement, and a lump sum equal to 100% of this base salary as well as continued participation in our health and welfare plans for up to twelve months. In addition, Mr. Green's restricted shares shall vest in accordance with the terms of the restricted stock agreement.

The employment agreement further provides that, upon the occurrence of a Change of Control, as defined therein, all stock options, restricted stock and other stock-based grants issued to Mr. Green shall immediately and irrevocably vest and become exercisable upon the occurrence of a Change of Control.

SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT

The following table sets forth information about the beneficial ownership of our common stock as of February 15, 2019 by:

  • each person, or group of affiliated persons, known to us to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of our common stock;
  • each named executive officer and each director; and
  • all of our executive officers and directors as a group.

Unless otherwise noted below, the address of each beneficial owner listed in the table is c/o Aytu BioScience Inc., 373 Inverness Parkway, Suite 206, Englewood, Colorado 80112. We have determined beneficial ownership in accordance with the rules of the SEC. Except as indicated by the footnotes below, we believe, based on the information furnished to us, that the persons and entities named in the tables below have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock that they beneficially own, subject to applicable community property laws.

33

This table is based upon information supplied by our officers, directors and the Schedules 13D and 13G that have been filed with the SEC, and the information is not necessarily indicative of beneficial ownership for any other purpose. Under such rules, beneficial ownership includes any shares as to which the individual or entity has sole or shared voting power or investment power and any shares as to which the individual or entity has the right to acquire beneficial ownership within 60 days of February 15, 2019 through the exercise of any stock option. The inclusion of such shares, however, does not constitute an admission that the named stockholder is a direct or indirect beneficial owner of, or receives the economic benefit from, such shares and we did not deem these shares outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person. All unvested restricted stock awards are included in each holder's beneficial ownership as holders are entitled to voting rights upon issuance of the restricted stock awards. Applicable percentages are based on 26,828,490 shares of common stock outstanding on February 15, 2019.
