Item 3.01

Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing

As previously disclosed, on April 1, 2024, Eiger BioPharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) and its direct subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for relief (the “Bankruptcy Petitions”) under chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas.

On April 2, 2024, the Company received written notice (the “Delisting Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, as a result of the Bankruptcy Petitions and in accordance with Nasdaq Listing Rules 5101, 5110(b) and IM-5101-1, Nasdaq had determined that the Company’s common stock will be delisted from Nasdaq. The Delisting Notice also advises the Company of its right to appeal Nasdaq’s determination pursuant to procedures set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5800 Series. The Company does not intend to pursue an appeal.

Trading of the Company’s common stock will be suspended at the opening of business on April 11, 2024. Nasdaq will file a Form 25-NSE with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which will remove the Company’s common stock from listing and registration on Nasdaq. As a result, the Company’s common stock is expected to begin trading on the over-the-counter (“OTC”) market on April 11, 2024. On the OTC market, shares of the Company’s common stock, which previously traded on the Nasdaq under the symbol EIGR, are expected to trade under the symbol EIGRQ.


Item 5.02.

Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On April 1, 2024, Jeffrey S. Glenn notified the Company of his resignation as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors, to be effective April 1, 2024. Dr. Glenn’s resignation was not the result of any disagreement or dispute with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
