PhaseBio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Registrant”) is unable to file, without unreasonable effort or expense, its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2023 within the prescribed time period. As previously disclosed, on October 23, 2022, the Registrant filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of Title 11 (“Chapter 11”) of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”), thereby commencing a Chapter 11 case (the “Chapter 11 Case”) for the Registrant (Case No. 22-10995-LSS). Due to the considerable time and resources the Registrant’s management is devoting to the Chapter 11 Case, the Registrant does not have the funds or personnel necessary to prepare and timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q on or before the August 14, 2023 due date without unreasonable effort or expense. The Registrant cannot at this time estimate when it will be able to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

The Company has concluded that it is unable to file a Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2023 (or other Periodic Reports) without unreasonable effort and expense for the reasons described in Part III of this Form 12b-25.
