A.P. Pharma, Inc. Announces Planned Name Change To “Heron Therapeutics, Inc.” And Application To List On NASDAQ Capital Market

A.P. Pharma, Inc. (OTCBB: APPA.OB), a specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today that it has filed an application to list the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market. In addition, the Company’s Board of Directors has, subject to stockholder approval, approved proposals to rename the Company "Heron Therapeutics, Inc." and to implement a reverse split of its common stock. The reverse stock split will be implemented in support of the Company’s NASDAQ listing application at a specific ratio within the range of 1:10 to 1:20, as fixed by the board following stockholder approval.

“As a component of our recent corporate restructuring, we feel it is important to rebrand the organization’s identity,” said Barry Quart, Pharm D., A.P. Pharma’s Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, our planned reverse split will be an important component to further strengthen the organization and allow us to seek relisting on the NASDAQ. Together, we believe these activities will help better position the Company in advance of the resubmission of our New Drug Application for APF530, our lead product candidate for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, and its potential commercialization.”

The Company will be filing a proxy statement for stockholder consideration of these proposals and expects to hold a stockholder meeting on these proposals in mid-September. If these proposals are approved, the Company expects that it will commence trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market in early October, subject to satisfaction of NASDAQ listing standards.
