Nxt-ID, Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to complete the preparation, review and filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 (the “Form 10-K”) by March 31, 2021 due to a delay in the completion of the Company’s financial statements as a result of the timing of a forensic investigation initiated by the Company following its discovery during the course of its year-end audit procedures, that a Company employee converted checks from customers due to the Company without authorization. The Company believes, based upon its preliminary review that the theft was limited to two checks, but its review and that of its independent professional has not been completed. The Company’s Audit Committee has engaged a professional to conduct a forensic review in order to confirm and quantify the scope and amount of the conversion, which review is still being undertaken. As a result of the Company’s engagement of a forensic accounting expert to conduct such an investigation, the Company has determined that additional time is required to finalize the preparation of its Form 10-K financial statements and disclosures.

 

The Company’s management, Audit Committee, independent registered public accounting firm and forensic experts are working diligently to complete such investigation and to complete the preparation of the Form 10-K. The Company currently anticipates that it will file the Form 10-K within the “grace” period provided by Rule 12b-25 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 (the “Form 12b-25”) contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that express the Company’s intentions, beliefs, expectations, strategies, predictions or any other statements related to the timing and outcome of the investigation discussed herein, any discovery of additional information relevant to such investigation, the conclusions of the Company’s management, Audit Committee, forensic experts and the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm concerning matters relating to such investigation, whether such investigation will require additional changes or corrections to reported financial information (which changes or corrections may be material), unanticipated material issues that could delay the completion of such investigation, any delay in the filing of the Form 10-K, any failure to comply with the Nasdaq Capital Market’s periodic filing and other requirements for continued listing, adverse effects on the Company’s business and operations as a result of such investigation, the initiation of any legal proceedings related to such investigation, the completion of the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and the volatility of the Company’s stock price, as well as other future activities of the Company, or other future events or conditions. These statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company’s business based, in part, on assumptions made by its management. These statements are not guarantees of future performances and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in the forward-looking statements due to numerous factors, including those risks discussed in this Form 12b-25 and the Form 10-K, and in other documents that the Company files from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Any forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Form 12b-25, except as required by law.
