August 31, 2018
Berkeley Heights, NJ – August 31, 2018 – CorMedix Inc. (NYSE American: CRMD), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of infectious and inflammatory disease, today announced that NYSE Regulation has accepted the Company’s plan to regain compliance with the Exchange’s continued listing standards set forth in Sections 1003(a)(i-iii) of the NYSE American Company Guide. CorMedix submitted its plan on July 16, 2018, and has been granted a plan period through December 16, 2019.
As previously reported in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 19, 2018, CorMedix was notified on June 14, 2018, by the Exchange that the Company was not in compliance with Section 1003(a)(i)-(iii) related to insufficient stockholders’ equity.
This notice from the Exchange has no immediate impact on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the Exchange. The listing of CorMedix’s common stock is being continued during the plan period, during which time the Company will be subject to periodic review to determine whether CorMedix is making progress consistent with the accepted plan. If the Company does not make progress consistent with the plan during the plan period, the NYSE may initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate.
CorMedix Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases. The Company is focused on developing its lead product Neutrolin®, a novel, non-antibiotic antimicrobial solution designed to prevent costly and dangerous bloodstream infections associated with the use of central venous catheters, currently in Phase 3 development for patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis. Such infections cost the U.S. healthcare system approximately $6 billion annually and contribute significantly to increased morbidity and mortality. Neutrolin has FDA Fast Track status and is designated as a Qualified Infectious Disease Product, which provides the potential for priority review of a marketing application by FDA and allows for 5 additional years of QIDP market exclusivity in the event of U.S. approval. Neutrolin is already marketed as a CE Marked product in Europe and other territories. In parallel, CorMedix is leveraging its taurolidine technology to develop a pipeline of antimicrobial medical devices, with active programs in surgical sutures and meshes, and topical hydrogels. The company is also working with top-tier researchers to develop taurolidine-based therapies for rare pediatric cancers. For more information, visit: www.cormedix.com.
