K-V Pharmaceutical Announces Planned Transition Of Trading Of Class A And Class B Common Shares To The OTC Markets

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- K-V Pharmaceutical Company (NYSE: KVa / KVb) ("K-V" or "the Company") today announced that its Class A and Class B common shares may be traded in the over the counter (OTC) market following the Company's suspension from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE").  However, K-V cannot ensure that either class of stock will be, or will continue to be, traded.  Trading in the OTC market may result in significantly lower trading volumes and liquidity for investors seeking to buy or sell shares of K-V's common stock.

Earlier today, the Company received notice from the NYSE that trading in its Class A and Class B common shares would be suspended, pending delisting, following the Company's voluntary filing for protection under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code on August 4, 2012.  The Company will not be challenging the NYSE's delisting action.

Court documents, claims forms and other documents related to K-V's Chapter 11 can be found at  Additional information and frequently asked questions (FAQs) for shareholders can be found at
