The following statements are made as of the date of filing the Original Form, September 28, 2017.
Sevion Therapeutics, Inc. (the Company) is filing this Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) to postpone the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 (the Annual Report) beyond September 28, 2017, the prescribed due date for such filing. As disclosed in the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed on June 6, 2017 with the SEC, on May 31, 2017 the Company and Eloxx Pharmaceuticals Ltd., an Israeli company (Eloxx Israel) entered into the initial agreement relating to a planned reverse merger, whereby Eloxx Israel will merge with Sevion Sub Ltd., an Israeli company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, with Eloxx Israel surviving the merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company (the Transaction). Due to the extensive and complex disclosure process and negotiations related to the Transaction, which is a highly complex, multi-party, multi-jurisdiction transaction, significant management time and resources have been diverted from the Companys normal process of reviewing and completing the Annual Report. Additionally, the Company has maintained minimal staffing due to capital restraints, which has resulted in the Companys Chief Financial Officer and an accountant working for the Company on only a part-time basis. As a result, the Company cannot, without unreasonable effort or expense, file the Annual Report on or prior to the prescribed due date of September 28, 2017. The Company expects to file the Annual Report on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date.
