NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 9, 2016) - Tauriga Sciences, Inc. (OTC PINK: TAUG) ("Tauriga" or the "Company"), a life sciences technology company, has filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2016, its fiscal first quarter. The Company must still file its Quarterly Report for the period ended September 30, 2016, its second fiscal quarter ("Second Quarter Report"). The Company anticipates that it will complete this filing by the end of this calendar year, if not sooner.
As previously reported, the Company became a delinquent filer and was downgraded from the OTCQB Exchange on July 31, 2015 due to what the Company strongly believes to be professional malpractice committed by Cowan Gunteski & Co. P.A. ("Cowan Gunteski") as well as Cowan Gunteski's subsequent conduct. The Company continues to prosecute its lawsuit against Cowan Gunteski and remains confident in the merits of its case. There can be no guaranty, however, the Company will receive any judgment award.
Additionally, the Company is in contact with OTC MARKETS concerning the uplisting of its shares from OTC PINK Limited Information Tier to the OTCQB upon the Company filing its Second Quarter Report status. The Company will update shareholders with additional information on this subject as soon as practicable.
Tauriga's Chief Executive Officer, Seth M. Shaw, expressed, "The Company has overcome many difficulties over the past 16 months and now can confidently express to its shareholders that it will be current in its periodic reports with SEC by December 31, 2016. This is a positive development for Tauriga as it strengthens the Company's ability in negotiations with potential acquisition target(s) and provides the Company with opportunities and access to capital that have not been possible since July 31, 2015. Tauriga's management remains deeply appreciative of its shareholders continued patience and loyalty and believes that its shareholders deserve a successful and prosperous future."
