Orchid Delays Release of 2004 10-K Due to December Departure of CFO Spicer

NEW YORK, March 18 (GenomeWeb News) - Orchid Biosciences has delayed the release of its 10-K 2004 earnings report due to the recent departure of CFO Mike Spicer, and because the SEC now considers Orchid to be an accelerated filer, the company said in a document filed with the SEC yesterday.


The company issued a press release reporting its fourth-quarter and year-end 2004 earnings earlier this month. The company said it will file the form by March 31.

In today's SEC filing, Orchid said the delay occured because 2005 is "the first year that the Registrant is an accelerated filer for purposes of filing its periodic reports and the Resitrant's  Chief Financial Officer, whio is charged with the primary responsibility for preparing the Form 10-K and its supporting schedules, resigned effective as of December 31, 2004."
