NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ember Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCPK: EMBT, the "Company"), a diversified New

York-based pharmaceutical company developing targeted therapies for osteoarthritis, kidney fibrosis, and other regenerative medicines, today announced that on October 1, 2018 the Company voluntarily filed a Form 15
with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission" or "SEC") to voluntarily deregister its common stock and suspend its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). The Company expects deregistration to become effective within 90 days of the filing of the Form 15.  As a result of the Form 15 filing, the Company's obligations to file with the SEC certain reports and forms, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, will be suspended as of the date of the filing of the Form 15 and will cease as of the date the filing becomes effective.

The Company's Board of Directors carefully considered the advantages and disadvantages of deregistration before approving the filing of the Form 15, including such factors as the high costs of filing and preparing periodic reports for the SEC, the increased outside accounting, audit, legal and other expenses and costs associated with being a public reporting company, the burdens placed on management to comply with the Exchange Act reporting requirements, and the limited liquidity for the Company's common stock.

The Company believes that following the filing of the Form 15 its shares of common stock will continue to be quoted on OTC Pink Marketplace, although there can be no assurances that a broker will continue to make a market in the Company's common stock or that trading will continue in the future.

"We believe that by removing the expense burden that accompanies the SEC reporting requirements, it will allow us to focus our time and resources on building long-term value in the Company," said Joseph Hernandez Executive Chairman of Ember Therapeutics, Inc.
