Catalent, Inc. (“Catalent” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CTLT), the leader in enabling the development and supply of better treatments for patients worldwide, today announced that, on September 14, 2023, it received a notice (the “NYSE Notice”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual, because the Company did not timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023 (the “Form 10-K”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
The NYSE Notice has no immediate effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock on the NYSE. The NYSE Notice informed the Company that, under NYSE rules, the Company has six months from September 13, 2023 to regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards by filing the Form 10-K with the SEC. The NYSE further noted that, if the Company fails to file the Form 10-K within the six-month period, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The NYSE Notice also notes that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if it deems that the circumstances warrant.
As previously reported in the Company’s Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on August 30, 2023 (the “Form 12b-25”), the Company was unable to file the Form 10-K within the prescribed period because it requires additional time to complete its procedures related to management’s assessment of the effectiveness of its internal controls over financial reporting as of June 30, 2023 and other closing procedures. Subsequent to filing the Form 12b-25, the Company continued to dedicate significant resources to the completion of such procedures, but was unable to file the Form 10-K by September 13, 2023, the end of the extension period provided by the Form 12b-25. The Company requires additional time to complete such procedures for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2023.
Based on currently available information and subject to the completion of the preparation of the Company’s financial statements and assessment of the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting and completion of the audits thereof, the Company does not expect any material change to the financial results to be included in the Form 10-K compared to the financial information reported in the earnings release the Company furnished to the SEC on the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 29, 2023.
The Company is working diligently to complete the necessary work to file the Form 10-K as soon as practicable and currently expects to file the Form 10-K within the six-month period granted by the NYSE Notice; however, there can be no assurance that the Form 10-K will be filed within such period.
