PART III – NARRATIVE

 

Abraxas Petroleum Corporation (the “Company”) cannot timely file its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”), originally due on August 10, 2020, due to disruptions from the unprecedented conditions surrounding the outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic (“COVID-19”). The COVID-19 disruptions include, but are not limited to, office closures, communication issues between the Company and its professional advisors, and the unavailability of key Company personnel required to prepare the Company’s financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, due to suggested and mandated social quarantining and work from home orders. The disruptions in staffing, communications, and access to personnel have resulted in delays, limited support, and insufficient review. Such delays were further exacerbated by delays which occurred in connection with the preparation of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, for the same reasons described above. The Company has also been delayed in preparing the Quarterly Report due to delays in obtaining information from third parties who have similarly been unavailable and impacted by COVID-19. This has, in turn, delayed the Company’s ability to complete its financial reporting process and prepare the Quarterly Report. The delay could not be eliminated by the Company without undue expense and unreasonable effort.

 

PART IV -- OTHER INFORMATION

The Company will file the subject Form 10-Q no later than the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date.
