FORT COLLINS, Colo., March 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Statera Biopharma, Inc. (Nasdaq: STAB) (the “Company” or “Statera Biopharma”), a leading biopharmaceutical company creating next-generation immune therapies that focus on immune restoration and homeostasis, today announced that the Company has filed a Form 12b-25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to extend until April 15, 2022 the due date for filing the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.

Statera Biopharma has been unable to complete its financial statements for the full year 2021 due to a delay experienced in completing its financial statements and other disclosures in the Annual Report. As a result, the Company is still in the process of compiling required information to complete the Annual Report and its independent registered public accounting firm requires additional time to complete its audit of the financial statements for the period ended December 31, 2021 to be included in the Annual Report. The Company anticipates that it will file the Annual Report no later than 15 calendar days following the prescribed due date or by April 15, 2022.

As a result of today’s announcement, the Company postponed its conference call and webcast to discuss its financial results for full year 2021. Details for the rescheduled conference call and webcast will be announced at a later date.
