PART II - RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)


  (a)  The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;



(b)  The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-CEN or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
  (c)  The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.








State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


Eagle Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with respect to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 (the “2023 Form 10-K”). The Company is unable to file the 2023 Form 10-K within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense primarily due to the circumstances described below.


As previously disclosed, the Company intends to restate its financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, the review and preparation of which is currently ongoing. In addition, the Company’s review and preparation of its financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 remains ongoing. Due to the time and effort devoted to the matters relating to such prior periods, the Company is delayed in its reporting and review process for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023. Accordingly, the Company does not expect to complete the preparation and filing of the 2023 Form 10-K by the prescribed due date or within the extended time period permitted by Rule 12b-25.


The Company expects that it will receive a delinquency notification letter from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) with respect to its delayed 2023 Form 10-K, similar to the letter relating to the Company’s delayed Form 10-Q for the third quarter 2023 previously disclosed in the Company’s Forms 8-K filed with the SEC on November 29, 2023 and February 13, 2024.


In addition, as previously disclosed, the Company has identified ineffective disclosure controls and procedures and material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting. The Company is continuing to evaluate its internal control over financial reporting and expects to report its remediation plan and further information regarding the material weaknesses in the 2023 Form 10-K.

If answer is no, identify report(s). ¨ Yes No


Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for period ended September 30, 2023


(3)Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof? x Yes ¨ No


If so: attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.


For the reasons set forth in Part III above, the Company is currently not in a position to provide a reasonable estimate of the anticipated changes in its results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to its results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2022.





Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements


This Form 12b-25 contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended, and other securities law.

Words and phrases such as “anticipated,” “forward,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “may,” “intend,” “remain,” “potential,” “prepare,” “expected,” “believe,” “plan,” “seek,” “continue,” “estimate,” “and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
