Eagle Pharmaceuticals Announces Receipt of Delisting Notification from Nasdaq


WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., May 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eagle Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: EGRX) (the “Company” or “Eagle”) today announced that it received a notice (the “Notice”) on May 20, 2024, from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) advising the Company that it has initiated a process to delist the Company’s securities from Nasdaq because the Company had not filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 (the “Q3 2023 Form 10-Q”) and its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 (the “2023 Form 10-K”) by May 13, 2024. The Notice further advises the Company that, pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(d)(2), the Company’s failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 (the “Q1 2024 Form 10-Q”) serves as an additional and separate basis for delisting.

Unless the Company requests a hearing to appeal the delisting process by May 28, 2024, trading of the Company’s common stock will be suspended from The Nasdaq Capital Market at the opening of business on May 30, 2024, and will subsequently be removed from listing. Accordingly, the Company intends to timely request a hearing before a Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”). The hearing request will automatically stay the suspension of the Company’s common stock for 15 calendar days from the date of the request, or 22 calendar days from the date of the Notice if the request is filed on May 28, 2024. In connection with the hearing request, the Company intends to request that the stay be extended through the conclusion of the hearings process and the expiration of any additional extension period granted by the Panel following the hearing. In that regard, pursuant to the Nasdaq Listing Rules, the Panel may grant an additional extension period not to exceed 360 days from the initial due date of the Q3 2023 Form 10-Q.

There can be no assurance that any hearing before the Panel would be successful, that an extended stay or additional extension would be granted, that the Company will be able to regain compliance with the Rule or maintain compliance with the other continued listing requirements set forth in the Nasdaq Listing Rules or that the Company will be able to continue its listing on Nasdaq.

As previously disclosed, on November 27, 2023, the Company received a delinquency notification from the Staff advising the Company that due to the failure to timely file its Q3 2023 Form 10-Q, the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq’s continued listing requirements under Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) (the “Rule”). In accordance with Nasdaq rules, following timely submission by the Company of a compliance plan, Nasdaq granted the Company until May 13, 2024, to regain compliance with the Rule. On April 8, 2024, the Company received an additional notice from Nasdaq advising the Company that due to the Company’s failure to timely file its 2023 Form 10-K, the Company is not in compliance with the Rule. On May 10, 2024, the Company filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with respect to its Q1 2024 Form 10-Q.
