Business news for the stock market
Leverkusen, Germany (pta041/09.03.2022/22:45) - Biofrontera AG (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: B8F), an international biopharmaceutical company, announced today the voluntary filing of Form 15F with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to terminate the registration of all classes of its registered securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Biofrontera previously initiated the delisting of its American Depositary Shares, each representing two ordinary shares (ADSs) from Nasdaq by filing Form 25 on Feb. 24, 2022 and trading of the ADSs on Nasdaq was suspended effective March 07, 2022. The reason for this step was to reduce complexity in financial reporting and administrative costs. On March 7, 2022, Biofrontera's ADSs were transferred to a sponsored "Level I" ADS program with the assistance of BNY Mellon as depository bank and have since traded on the U.S. over-the-counter (OTC) market under the ticker symbol BFAGY.
Biofrontera will maintain the listing of its ordinary shares on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "B8F."
Upon the filing of the Form 15F, Biofrontera's obligations to file periodic and current reports with the SEC, was immediately suspended and, barring any objection by the SEC, are expected to terminate 90 days after the filing. Despite the Nasdaq delisting and termination of SEC registration, shareholders will be able to continue to trade the Biofrontera AG shares on the OTC market. Additionally, shareholders may also exchange their ADSs for ordinary shares of Biofrontera AG. Investors can contact their broker or BNY Mellon for more information.
