Explanatory Note
 
On September 25, 2017, Palatin Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 (the “Initial Report”). The Company inadvertently omitted the name and conformed signature of its independent registered public accounting firm, KPMG LLP, on the Consent of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm (the “Consent”), filed as Exhibit 23 to the Initial Report. The purpose of this Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (this “Amendment”) is to correct the Consent to include the name and conformed signature of KPMG LLP.
 
As required by Rule 12b-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, new certifications of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer are being filed as exhibits to this Amendment. There are no changes to the Initial Report other than those set forth above. This Amendment does not reflect events occurring after the filing of the Initial Report, nor does it modify or update disclosures therein in any way. Among other things, forward-looking statements made in the Initial Report have not been revised to reflect events that occurred or facts that became known to us after the filing of the Initial Report, and such forward-looking statements should be read in their historical context. Accordingly, the Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Initial Report and with our filings with the SEC subsequent to the Initial Report, including any amendments to such filings.   Because no financial statements have been included in this Amendment and this Amendment does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4, and 5 of the certifications have been omitted.
