Item 8.01 Other Events

Teligent, Inc. (the “Company”) will be relying on the Securities and Exchange Commission's Order under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Modifying Exemptions from the Reporting and Proxy Delivery Requirements for Public Companies dated March 25, 2020 (Release No. 34-88465) (the "Order") to delay the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2020 (the “Form 10-Q”) due to circumstances related to the coronavirus disease ("COVID-19"). The original due date for filing of the Company's Form 10-Q is May 15, 2020. The Company currently expects to file the Form 10-Q by May 26, 2020, but in any event, no later than June 25, 2020, in compliance with the provisions of the Order.

The Company requires additional time to finalize the Form 10-Q because it has experienced disruptions to its business and operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company’s headquarters is located in New Jersey, which continues to be operating under a stay-at-home order and, accordingly, all the Company’s finance and accounting personnel are working remotely.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated additional analyses in connection with the preparation and review of Form 10-Q. This includes reviewing financial and liquidity projections for future periods. These projections are necessary to assess tangible and intangible asset impairment risk.

The Company believes its risk factors as previously disclosed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K, as filed on April 13, 2020, adequately address its current risks associated with COVID-19.

Forward- Looking Statements:

Except for statements of historical fact, this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Form 8-K”) contains statements as to the Company's beliefs and expectations on the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic may have on its business which are forward-looking statements made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections about the industry and markets in which the Company operates. In addition, other written or oral statements, which constitute forward-looking statements, may be made by or on behalf of the Company. Words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are based on current expectations of management and are not guarantees of future performance, and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, which are difficult to predict. These risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, competitive factors, outsourcing trends in the pharmaceutical industry, the general economic conditions in the markets in which the Company operates, levels of industry research and development spending, the Company’s ability to continue to attract and retain qualified personnel, the fixed price nature of product development agreements or the loss of customers and other factors described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the “Risk Factors” section as set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements set forth herein speak only as of the date of this report. The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable law.
