Veru Inc. Announces Change in Nasdaq Ticker Symbol to VERU

MIAMI, Aug. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veru Inc. (Nasdaq:VERU) (formerly, Nasdaq:FHCO) (”Veru” or the “company”), formerly known as Veru Healthcare/The Female Health Company, a biopharmaceutical company focused on urology and oncology, today announced that as of August 7, 2017, the company is now trading on the Nasdaq exchange under the ticker symbol VERU.

/EIN News/ -- “This is an important milestone for us at Veru as it signifies our evolution from being historically a single product medical device company to a developing biopharmaceutical company focusing on the development and commercialization of urology and oncology products primarily via the 505(b)(2) development pathway,” said Mitchell Steiner, MD, president and CEO of Veru.
