About Ampio Pharmaceuticals

Throughout the months of February and March 2024, the Board of Directors sought to identify and evaluate potential options available to the Company. Based on these evaluations, the Board determined to take steps designed to ensure sufficient cash to adequately fund an orderly wind-down of the Company’s operations and to maximize the Company’s cash position. Consistent with this goal, on March 25, 2024, the Board of Directors determined to pursue voluntary delisting of Ampio’s common stock from the NYSE American. After delisting, the Company expects to suspend the Company’s reporting obligations under Sections 13 and 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and deregister its common stock under Section 12(b) of the Exchange Act.

While the Board of Directors remains open to strategic options, given our prior efforts to develop similar strategic options, the Board of Directors believes that more likely options include the liquidation and wind up of the Company through a dissolution pursuant to a plan of liquidation and dissolution that would be subject to Board and stockholder approval or bankruptcy (should our net assets decline to levels that would require such action).

In addition, we are continuing to pursue resolution of the pending legal proceedings described in this Annual Report on Form 10-K under Part I, Item 3 “Legal Proceedings.”
