Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.


COVID-19 (coronavirus) Business Update


On March 26, 2020, TherapeuticsMD, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), issued a press release providing a business update, including announcing the suspension of the Company’s previously issued 2020 financial guidance due to the unknown impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on the Company’s business operations. The Company is unable to predict the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its financial results for 2020.


A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference. The information furnished in this Item 7.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 hereto, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.


Mitchell Krassan 10b5-1 Trading Plan


On March 23, 2020, Mitchell Krassan, the Chief Strategy & Performance Officer of the Company, terminated his previously announced 10b5-1 trading plan (the “Krassan 10b5-1 Plan”). The Krassan 10b5-1 Plan was originally entered into in December 2019 with respect to an aggregate of 789,658 ten-year options to acquire common stock, $0.001 per share, of the Company, with exercise prices equal to $0.19 and $0.20 per share. The options expire in May 2020 and September 2020.  An aggregate of 489,658 options with an exercise price of $0.20 per share that expire in September 2020 were not sold under the Krassan 10b5-1 Plan.


Item 8.01 Other Events.


Risk Factor


The Company is supplementing the risk factors previously disclosed in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on February 24, 2020 (the “2019 Form 10-K”), with the following risk factor:


The Company’s financial condition and results of operations for fiscal year 2020 and beyond may be materially adversely affected by the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.


The outbreak of the novel COVID-19 (coronavirus) has evolved into a global pandemic. COVID-19 has spread to many regions of the world, including the United States and Europe. The full extent to COVID-19 impacts our business and operating results will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and cannot be accurately predicted, including new information that may emerge concerning COVID-19 and the actions to contain COVID-19 or treat its impact, among others.


While the Company has developed a comprehensive COVID-19 contingency plan designed to preserve the value of the Company’s investments in its sales and marketing infrastructure, protect the Company’s balance sheet during this period of market disruption and meet the needs of the Company’s patients and prescribers, including cost-containment and spending cuts in the second quarter of 2020 that can be extended through the rest of the year depending on the evolution of COVID-19, the Company has suspended its previously announced 2020 financial guidance due to the unknown impact of COVID-19 on the Company’s business and the rapidly evolving nature of the pandemic. As a result of COVID-19, the Company will, among other things, (i) defer approximately $10 million in consumer and healthcare practitioner marketing spending for ANNOVERA® and IMVEXXY®, (ii) make cuts of approximately $20 million in other planned expenses for the year, (iii) negotiate lower fees and/or suspend services from non-critical third party vendors, (iv) implement a hiring freeze, (v) delay or cancel any non-critical information technology projects and (vi) eliminate travel, entertainment, meeting and event expenses.



Although the Company currently continues to have uninterrupted wholesale and retail distribution of its products and the Company does not anticipate a shortage of its products due to COVID-19 at this time, disruptions may occur for the Company’s customers or suppliers that may materially affect the Company’s ability to obtain supplies or other components for its products, manufacture additional products or deliver inventory in a timely manner. This would result in lost sales, additional costs, or penalties, or damage to the Company’s reputation. In addition, due to closures and restrictions on travel, the Company’s sales force is currently functioning largely utilizing digital engagement tools and tactics and virtual detailing, which may be less effective than the Company’s ordinary course sales and marketing programs. The Company may also require an increased level of working capital if it experiences extended billing and collection cycles as a result of displaced employees at the Company, payors, revenue cycle management contractors, or otherwise. The Company may also experience other unknown impacts from COVID-19 that cannot be predicted. Accordingly, disruptions to the Company’s business as a result of COVID-19 could result in a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects in the near-term and beyond 2020.
