January 24, 2014

Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year. On January 24, 2014 , RXi Pharmaceuticals Corporation (the "Company") filed a Certificate of Increase with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware amending the Company's previously filed Certificate of Designation (the "Certificate") for the Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Series A-1 Preferred Stock") to increase the total number of shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock authorized under the Certificate from 5,000 shares to 10,000 shares, effective as of the date thereof. Item 8.01 Other Events. On January 24, 2014 , the Company entered into an exchange agreement (the "Exchange Agreement") with Tang Capital Partners, L.P. ("TCP") pursuant to which TCP exchanged a total of 3,000 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the "Series A Preferred Stock") for a like number of shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock. The terms of the Series A-1 Preferred Stock are identical in all respects to the Series A Preferred Stock, other than the elimination of cash penalties that would potentially be due and payable upon the failure of the Company to have enough shares of its Common Stock available to permit the conversion of Series A Preferred Stock into Common Stock. As a result of the elimination of this penalty, the face value of the Series A-1 Preferred Stock will be reclassified on the Company's balance sheet from mezzanine to stockholders' equity, which reclassification will be reflected in the quarter ending March 31, 2014 and will result in the addition of $3 million to stockholders' equity. The Exchange Agreement was entered into for the purpose of increasing stockholders' equity in support of the Company's efforts to list its common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market . The issuance of the Series A-1 Preferred Stock under the Exchange Agreement was not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Company issued the Series A-1 Preferred Stock in a transaction exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act by virtue of the exemption provided for in Section 3(a)(9) of the Act for securities exchanged by the issuer with an existing security holder. No commission or other remuneration was paid or given directly or indirectly for soliciting such exchange. Item 9.01 Exhibits. (d) Exhibits 3.1 Certificate of Increase, filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on January 24, 2014 . * * * --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
