Item 8.01. Other Events


As previously disclosed, on September 19, 2019 Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter from the Listing Qualifications staff of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that it was not in compliance with the minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market. Nasdaq provided the Company with 180 days, or until March 17, 2020, to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement by having a closing bid price of at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. The Company intends to request a 180-day extension to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement and in order to be considered for such extension, is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to demonstrate it currently meets Nasdaq’s initial listing requirements (other than price-related criteria), including specifically the requirement to have at least $5,000,000 in stockholders’ equity.


The following table sets forth (on an unaudited basis) the Company’s stockholders’ equity position as of December 31, 2019, and as adjusted on a pro forma basis as of March 16, 2020 that reflects (i) the receipt of proceeds in January, February and March 2020 from the sale of equity securities and the exercise of outstanding warrants; (ii) amendments in March 2020 to the terms of certain other outstanding warrants to modify the provision requiring derivative liability treatment and qualify them for equity treatment, and (iii) an estimate of revenues and expenses from January 1, 2020 through March 16, 2020.
