Fresh Tracks Therapeutics Announces Listing on OTC Pink Market

BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fresh Tracks Therapeutics, Inc. (OTC Pink: FRTX) (“Fresh Tracks” or the “Company”) announced today that the Company’s common stock was suspended from trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market at the open of business. Following the suspension, the Company’s common stock now is quoted on the OTC Pink market under the same trading symbol, “FRTX.” The Company has withdrawn its appeal of Nasdaq’s determination to delist the Company’s common stock, which will no longer trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market.

Fresh Tracks intends to reconvene its special meeting of stockholders on December 27, 2023 and encourages all stockholders of record on October 17, 2023 who have not yet voted to submit their proxy by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on December 26, 2023. If Fresh Tracks’ stockholders do not approve Proposal 1, Approval of the Liquidation and Dissolution of the Company and the Plan of Liquidation and Dissolution (the “Plan of Dissolution”), which, if approved, will authorize the Company and the Board of Directors to Liquidate and Dissolve the Company in accordance with the Plan of Dissolution, Fresh Tracks intends to seek judicial dissolution, which is likely to be costly and time-consuming and would reduce the amount of cash distributable to Fresh Tracks’ stockholders associated with the Company’s dissolution.

Your vote is important. If you have questions about how to vote, please call the Company’s proxy solicitor D.F. King at 800-769-4414 (or international: 914-218-4628).
