Delisting from ASX

Delisting from the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX)

On 11 October 2023, Kazia Therapeutics announced its intention to delist from the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

Following careful consideration, the Kazia Board has ultimately determined that the costs, administrative burden and commercial disadvantages of remaining listed on ASX outweigh any benefits of a continued ASX listing. Following the Delisting, the Company will maintain its listing on the NASDAQ and the fully paid ordinary shares in the Company (Shares) will no longer be quoted on the ASX.
