WARREN, NJ, Sept. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Timber Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Timber” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: TMBR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of treatments for rare and orphan dermatologic diseases, today announced that the NYSE American LLC (the “NYSE American”) has accepted the Company’s business plan to regain compliance with the continued listing standards set forth in Sections 1003(a)(i) and (ii) of the NYSE American Company Guide.
As previously disclosed, on June 28, 2023, the Company received written notice from the NYSE American that the Company was not in compliance with Sections 1003(a)(i) and (ii). Section 1003(a)(i) of the NYSE American Company Guide requires a listed company’s stockholders’ equity be at least $2.0 million if it has reported losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in two of its three most recent fiscal years. Section 1003(a)(ii) of the NYSE American Company Guide requires a listed company’s stockholders’ equity be at least $4.0 million if it has reported losses from continuing operations and/or net losses in three of its four most recent fiscal years. On September 12, 2023, the NYSE American provided a notice (the “Notice”) to the Company accepting the Company’s plan to regain compliance and has granted to the Company a plan period through December 28, 2024.
The Notice has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), which will continue to be listed and traded on the NYSE American during the plan period, subject to the Company’s compliance with the other listing requirements of the NYSE American. The Common Stock will continue to trade under the symbol “TMBR”, with the designation of “.BC” to indicate the status of the Common Stock as “below compliance”. The Notice does not affect the Company’s ongoing business operations or its reporting requirements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).
During the plan period, the Company will be subject to periodic review to determine whether it is making progress consistent with the accepted plan. Failure to make progress consistent with the plan or to regain compliance with the continued listing standards by December 28, 2024 could result in the Common Stock being delisted from the NYSE American. As previously disclosed, the Company has entered into a definitive agreement (the “Merger Agreement”) to be acquired by LEO US Holding, Inc. (“LEO Pharma”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of LEO Pharma A/S, and has filed a definitive proxy to obtain stockholder approval for the Merger Agreement and merger transaction. If stockholder approval is obtained and the merger transaction is consummated, the Common Stock will be delisted from the NYSE American and deregistered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Additional details regarding the Notice from NYSE American were included in, and the description above is qualified in its entirety by, Timber’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on September 18, 2023, which is available under “Investors” – “SEC filings” at www.timberpharma.com .
