PART III — NARRATIVE

State below in reasonable detail why the Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR or the transition report portion thereof could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Due to connectivity issues with the Commission’s EDGAR server, Threshold Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”) was unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2017 (the “Quarterly Report”) within the prescribed time period. Although the Quarterly Report was submitted by the Company’s filing agent prior to 5:30 pm ET deadline on May 15, 2017, the submission was not accepted by the EDGAR system until after 5:30 pm ET.

The Company intends to submit a written request to the Commission to adjust the filing date of the Quarterly Report to May 15, 2017, pursuant to Rule 13(b) of Regulation S-T. However, as a precautionary matter, the Company is submitting this Form 12b-25 to ensure that it remains timely in its periodic filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
