Timber Pharmaceuticals Announces Halt of Common Stock Trading
Compliance with NYSE Listing Requirements Contingent on Stockholder Approval of Reverse Stock Split at Special Meeting of Stockholders on November 7, 2022 and Consummation of Reverse Stock Split
BASKING RIDGE, NJ - (NewMediaWire) - November 3, 2022 - Timber Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Timber" or the “Company”) (NYSE American: TMBR), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of treatments for rare and orphan dermatologic diseases, today announced that trading of its shares of common stock has been halted by the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE” or the “Exchange”) due to the low trading price of the Company’s shares of common stock on November 1, 2022. The Company expects the trading halt to remain in effect until after Timber’s Special Meeting of Stockholders scheduled for November 7, 2022, at which the Company is seeking stockholder approval to complete a reverse stock split in order to regain compliance with NYSE’s listing requirements, and consummation of such reverse stock split based on the parameters being voted on at such meeting. Subject to NYSE approval, it is anticipated that trading will resume on the NYSE American following the implementation of the reverse stock split. Although not anticipated by the Company, the Exchange could maintain the trading halt. The Exchange could also suspend trading and move to delist the Company’s common stock if the price per share post-split does not meet the requirements of Section 1003(f)(v) of the NYSE American Company Guide.
John Koconis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Timber, commented, “We expect this trading halt will remain in effect until shortly after the special meeting of stockholders that will take place on November 7that 1:00 P.M. (EST) and consummation of a reverse stock split consistent with the parameters being voted on at that meeting. Timber’s board of directors and management continue to believe in the strength of its clinical development programs including Timber’s lead asset, TMB-001, which is in development for the treatment of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis and has been awarded Breakthrough and Fast Track designation by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. These designations will continue to benefit us as we advance through the ongoing pivotal Phase 3 ASCEND trial. Congenital ichthyosis is a painful chronic disease with no approved treatments and Timber is working hard to fulfill the promise of TMB-001 for the many patients in need of an effective treatment.”
