Lifecore Biomedical Provides Update for Development Portfolio and Timing of Delayed Filings
CHASKA, Minn., Oct. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lifecore Biomedical, Inc. (“Lifecore” or the “Company”), a fully integrated contract development and manufacturing organization (“CDMO”), today provided an update on its delayed filings. The Company anticipates reporting its Fiscal 2024 First Quarter results in late October or early November, pending completion of its annual audit, and will make a formal announcement via press release once the date is established.
The Company continued to advance its commercial development portfolio during the fiscal first quarter ended August 2023, adding two additional projects for a total of 31 projects in development and increasing its development opportunity pipeline by 14 to 58. As of the date hereof, the Company believes it has adequate cash and other available financial resources, including its availability under the revolving credit facility, to fund its operations through fiscal 2024.
Lifecore continues to work on completing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 28, 2023 (the “2023 Form 10-K”), which has been delayed due to compiling and analyzing of supporting documentation related to the accounting for certain recent non-routine corporate transactions occurring during the fourth quarter 2023 stemming from its asset dispositions and comprehensive debt refinancing. Today, the Company filed Form NT 10-Q related to its inability to complete the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended August 27, 2023 (the “2024 First Quarter Form 10-Q”) in a timely manner due to the ongoing delay in completing its Form 10-K, which delay could not be eliminated by the Company without unreasonable effort and expense. In accordance with Rule 12b-25 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Company will file its 2023 Form 10-K and 2024 First Quarter Form 10-Q as soon as practicable.
