PULMATRIX, INC. (NASDAQ:PULM) Files An 8-K Regulation FD Disclosure
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.
We intend, from time to time, to present and/or distribute to the investment community and utilize at various industry and other conferences a slide presentation, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. We undertake no obligation to update, supplement or amend the materials attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by reference in such a filing.

Item 8.01. Other Events.
On July 9, 2020, we announced that together with our partner Cipla Technologies, LLC (“Cipla”) (with whom we entered into a development and commercialization agreement on April 15, 2019, for the development and commercialization of Pulmazole) we decided to end our Phase 2 clinical study of Pulmazole and replace it with a new larger Phase 2b study designed with a longer treatment duration and key phase 3 enabling efficacy endpoints. Also being considered are clinical studies in India, South Africa and other regional markets where Cipla has strong clinical development and business capabilities and the potential assignment to Cipla of exclusive rights to develop and commercialize Pulmazole in these territories is currently under consideration. We plan to have a Type-C meeting with the FDA in Q1 2021 to inform our final clinical design and timelines. We plan to commence the new Phase 2b study when the risk of insufficient patient enrollment presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is reduced to an acceptable level.
As we also previously reported in July 2020, we were considering certain proposed amendments to our development and commercialization agreement with Cipla for the continued development for Pulmazole. We have not agreed to any amendments to the agreement as of the date of this Current Report. However, we expect that discussions regarding amendments to the agreement will continue. No assurance can be given that we will be able to reach a mutually acceptable arrangement with Cipla for the conduct of any proposed Phase 2b clinical study in the future. Accordingly, if we are unable to agree with Cipla on such matters such as cost sharing for the new study, we may be forced to suspend further development of Pulmazole.
On September 22, 2020, we issued a press release providing a product pipeline update, including with respect to Pulmazole. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
