(ATRX), a specialty pharmaceutical company leveraging technology to commercialize unique therapies and improve patient outcomes, today announced that it has terminated its previously announced offer to exchange all of the warrants to purchase shares of the common stock of the Company that the Company issued in connection with its private placements of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock and Series F Convertible Preferred Stock during 2018. The offer was made pursuant to the Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO that Adhera originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on May 28, 2019, and that was amended on June 6, 2019. As per the terms of the offer, the Company offered two shares of its common stock in exchange for each warrant tendered.

As a result, the Company has determined to terminate the exchange offer.

No warrants were exchanged in the exchange offer and all warrants previously tendered for exchange but not withdrawn will be promptly returned.

This communication constitutes a formal termination of the exchange offer, and a formal notification that Adhera will not accept for exchange any warrants tendered in connection with the offer. This communication is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell any warrants or any other securities.
