Item 8.01.

Other Events

As previously reported, TherapeuticsMD, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), received a determination letter from the staff of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC stating that the Company has not regained compliance with the minimum bid price requirement of $1.00 per share for continued listing of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”), as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A) (the “Minimum Bid Price Requirement”). The Company timely requested a hearing before the Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”), which was held on April 14, 2022. Subsequent to the hearing, the Company received notice from Nasdaq that the Panel granted the Company’s request to continue the listing of the Common Stock on Nasdaq through June 1, 2022 (the “Extended Date”) to afford the Company the opportunity to regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement.

To regain compliance with the Minimum Bid Price Requirement prior to the Extended Date, the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) has approved a 1-for-50 reverse stock split of the Common Stock, accompanied by a corresponding decrease in the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”), such that, following the consummation of the Reverse Stock Split, the number of authorized shares of Common Stock will be reduced from 600,000,000 shares to 12,000,000 shares.  The Company expects that the effective time of the Reverse Stock Split will be on or about 5:00 pm New York time on Friday, May 6, 2022, with the Common Stock trading on a post-split basis under the Company’s existing trading symbol, “TXMD,” at the market open on Monday, May 9, 2022. Fractional shares resulting from the Reverse Stock Split will be rounded up to the nearest whole share, and all shares of Common Stock (including fractions thereof) issuable upon the Reverse Stock Split to a given stockholder will be aggregated for the purpose of determining whether the Reverse Stock Split would result in the issuance of a fractional share. Pursuant to Section 78.209 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, the Reverse Stock Split does not require the approval of the Company’s stockholders.

Forward Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, statements related to the Reverse Stock Split and the filing of the Certificate of Change, as well as statements, other than historical facts, that address activities, events or developments that the company intends, expects, projects, believes or anticipates will or may occur in the future. These statements are often characterized by terminology such as “believes,” “hopes,” “may,” “anticipates,” “should,” “intends,” “plans,” “will,” “expects,” “estimates,” “projects,” “positioned,” “strategy” and similar expressions and are based on assumptions and assessments made in light of management’s experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors believed to be appropriate. Forward-looking statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K are made as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, and the Company undertakes no duty to update or revise any such statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of the Company’s control. Important factors that could cause actual results, developments and business decisions to differ materially from forward-looking statements are described in the sections titled “Risk Factors” in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, as well as reports on Form 8-K, and include whether the Company will be successful in maintaining the listing of its Common Stock on Nasdaq and the effects of the Reverse Stock Split.
