CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Akebia Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: AKBA), a biopharmaceutical company with the purpose to better the lives of people impacted by kidney disease, today announced plans to release its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023 by Friday, August 25, 2023 prior to the open of the financial markets. Akebia will schedule a conference call in parallel with reporting its financial results.

On August 10, 2023, Akebia filed with the SEC a Form 12b-25 Notification of Late Filing regarding its Quarterly Report on Form 10Q (the Form 10Q) for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.
