On March 29, 2024, Zevra filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission which revealed that, on March 25, 2024, the Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors, after discussion with senior management and the Company’s independent registered public accountants, concluded that the Company’s previously issued audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, (collectively, the “Prior Financial Statements”) should no longer be relied upon. In connection with the preparation of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 (the “2023 Form 10-K”), the Audit Committee concluded that, in prior years it had not appropriately accounted for certain common stock warrants as liabilities.

These errors led to understatements of derivative and warrant liability and additional paid-in capital and fluctuations in fair value adjustment related to derivative and warrant liability during the impacted periods. In addition, the Company stated that it had concluded that the previously disclosed errors led to misstatements of fair value adjustment related to derivative and warrant liability, derivative and warrant liability, additional paid-in capital, and accumulated deficit that were previously disclosed in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations included in the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2022, June 30, 2022, September 30, 2022, March 31, 2023, June 30, 2023 and September 30, 2023 (collectively, the “Prior Interim Financial Statements”) and that on March 25, 2024, the Audit Committee, after discussion with senior management and the Company’s independent registered public accountants, concluded that the Prior Interim Financial Statements should no longer be relied upon.

On this news, Zevra’s stock price fell $0.64 per share, or 11.03%, to close at $5.16 per share on April 1, 2024, the next trading day.
