Item 8.01 Other Events.

On May 24, 2022, Verrica Pharmaceuticals Inc. (the “Registrant”) announced that it received a complete response letter (“CRL”) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) as a direct result of deficiencies identified at a general reinspection of a facility of Sterling Pharmaceutical Services, LLC (“Sterling”), a contract manufacturing organization for its New Drug Application (the “NDA”) for VP-102 for the treatment of molluscum contagiosum. The CRL did not identify any other deficiencies. Sterling advised the Company that it received notice on May 19, 2022 that it is on Official Action Indicated (“OAI”) status. None of the issues identified by FDA during the reinspection were specific to the manufacturing of VP-102. The Company was informed by the FDA that it had completed its review of the NDA and product label, there were no open questions on the NDA review, and the VP-102 label was ready to be communicated.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
