KV Expects Filings To Be Completed Within Automatic Form 10-K Extension
ST. LOUIS, May 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- KV Pharmaceutical Company (NYSE: KVa/KVb), a fully integrated specialty pharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures, acquires and markets technology-differentiated branded products and generic/non-branded prescription pharmaceuticals, announced today that it expects to complete and file its fiscal 2008 Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission within the automatic extension period ending June 16, 2008 pursuant to a Form 12b-25 filed by the Company today. We also expect the fiscal 2008 Form 10-Q's will be filed by June 16, 2008.
Since the Company filed its fiscal 2007 Form 10-Q's and Form 10-K in March 2008, which incorporated the restatement of 11 years of financial statements and additional interim financial information, the Company has focused on preparing its Form 10-Q's for the first three quarters of fiscal 2008 and Form 10-K for the full fiscal year ended March 31, 2008. Although the Company had sought diligently to file the Form 10-K within 60 days after the end of its fiscal year, the time provided by the automatic extension period to June 16, 2008 is necessary to afford sufficient review by the parties involved.
With the completion of these filings, the Company will be in compliance with all Securities and Exchange Commission periodic filing requirements.
