INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Nov. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- PDL BioPharma, Inc. ("PDL" or "the Company") (Nasdaq: PDLI) announces it has rescheduled the date for announcing third quarter 2020 financial results and holding a conference call to Wednesday, November 11, 2020. PDL will issue its third quarter 2020 financial results news release on November 11 after market close, and PDL's management will host a conference call and webcast that same day at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time to discuss those financial results and provide an update on its progress in monetizing the Company's assets. A slide presentation to accompany the call will be available via the webcast link on the PDL website at http://www.pdl.com/.
As a result of the approval of the Company's stockholders on August 19, 2020 to pursue dissolution of the Company, PDL's basis of accounting transitioned effective September 1, 2020 from the going concern basis of accounting to the liquidation basis of accounting in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Activities associated with the third quarter earnings release are being rescheduled to November 11 due to the time needed to work through the complexities of switching to the liquidation basis of accounting.
Previously these activities were scheduled for Monday, November 9. Please note that if you pre-registered for the November 9 conference call, as described below, you will receive an updated calendar invitation via email from the conference call vendor with the new date and time.
