Akorn Gets NASDAQ Delinquency Notice For Failure To File 10-Q

Akorn, Inc. announced that it has received a notice from NASDAQ stating the Company is not in compliance with Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) for continued listing because it has not yet filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 by the due date of May 11, 2015. On April 24, 2015, Akorn announced that it will restate its previously issued financial statements for the annual period ending December 31, 2014 and the quarterly periods ending June 30, 2014, September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2014 due to errors identified during the first quarter 2015 financial review process. The errors will be corrected through amendments to Forms 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2014 and September 30, 2014 and Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. The amended forms will be filed prior to the filing of Akorn's Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2015. In order to maintain its listing, Akorn will submit to NASDAQ a plan of compliance by July 13, 2015 addressing any issues it believes would support its request for an extension of up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q filing for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. If the plan is accepted, Akorn may be able to continue its listing during the plan period up to November 9, 2015, during which time the Company will be subject to periodic review to determine if it is making progress consistent with the plan. If the plan is not accepted, or if the Company is not in compliance by November 9, 2015, Akorn may be subject to delisting proceedings. Under NASDAQ rules, Akorn has the right to appeal any determination by NASDAQ to initiate delisting proceedings.
