|Item 8.01.||Other Events.|
On April 29, 2020, ANI Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that it received a Refusal to File (“RTF”) letter from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) regarding its supplemental New Drug Application (“sNDA”) for Cortrophin Gel. Upon its preliminary review, the FDA determined that certain portions of the Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls section in the sNDA were not sufficiently complete to permit a substantive review. The Company will seek immediate guidance, which potentially includes requesting a Type A meeting with the FDA, to clarify and respond to the issues identified in the RTF letter.
