PART II — RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)




The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense



The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and



The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.





State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


On November 5, 2015, the Board of Directors of KaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) approved a restructuring plan involving reductions in headcount as part of a plan to reduce operating costs. The positions eliminated together represent approximately 61% of the Company’s workforce.


The Company expects to substantially complete the restructuring efforts in, and related charges will be incurred through, the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company estimates that it will incur total restructuring charges consisting of cash expenses for one-time termination benefits of between $400,000 and $500,000.


The restructuring plan is part of a plan to reduce operating costs and focus the Company’s resources on the ongoing development of lenzilumab, also known as KB003, in chronic monomyelocytic leukemia (CMML), while it continues to pursue strategic alternatives for the Company.


As a part of its restructuring, the Company also announced that it will pause enrollment in the Phase 2 cohort expansion phase of its ongoing clinical study of KB004 in certain hematologic malignancies. The Company has also announced its intent to repay in full its outstanding secured loan obligation to MidCap Financial, secured lender to the Company, in the approximate amount of $6.6 million, which will generate significant cash savings when compared to repayment of the debt in the ordinary course of business.


The Company is currently evaluating strategic alternatives, including potentially the sale of the Company or its assets, or a corporate acquisition, and may retain an investment bank to assist in those efforts. Since these efforts may not be successful, in light of its limited cash reserves the Company is considering all possible alternatives, including further restructuring activities, wind-down of operations and bankruptcy proceedings.


The Company has diligently pursued appropriate reporting and disclosures in its Form 10-Q filing, but in light of these recent events will be unable to complete the necessary analysis and disclosures to timely file its Form 10-Q for the third quarter.


Due to the additional time required by the Company to complete these activities, it is unable to file the Form 10-Q within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense.

Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s).








x Yes    o No








Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?








x Yes    o No








If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.



Spending for our clinical trial programs and general and administrative expenses associated with being a public company decreased during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same periods in 2014.  As a result, the net loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 is expected to be less than the net loss for the same periods in 2014; however, due to the continued review and related disclosure of certain of its operating expenses and related accruals, the Company is not able to provide an estimate of such loss or other results from operations at this time.
