ITEM 8.01 OTHER EVENTS.

 

On March 4, 2020, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) issued an order under Section 36 (Release No. 34-88318) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), granting exemptions from specified provisions of the Exchange Act and certain rules thereunder. On March 25, 2020, the order was modified and superseded by a new SEC order (Release No. 34-88465), which provides conditional relief to public companies that are unable to timely comply with their filing obligations as a result of the novel coronavirus (“COVID- 19”) outbreak (the “SEC Order”). The SEC Order provides that a registrant subject to the reporting requirements of Exchange Act Section 13(a) or 15(d), and any person required to make any filings with respect to such registrant, is exempt from any requirement to file or furnish materials with the Commission under Exchange Act Sections 13(a), 13(f), 13(g), 14(a), 14(c), 14(f), 15(d) and Regulations 13A, Regulation 13D-G (except for those provisions mandating the filing of Schedule 13D or amendments to Schedule 13D), 14A, 14C and 15D, and Exchange Act Rules 13f-1, and 14f-1, as applicable, if certain conditions are satisfied.

 

COVID-19 is currently impacting countries, communities, businesses, and markets, as well as global financial markets. Although management cannot predict at this time whether COVID- 19 will have a material impact on our future financial condition and results of operations, we believe that it could have a bearing on our ability to follow through with our business plan for the next 12 months, including our ability to obtain necessary financing. However, our ability to complete and file our quarterly report for the period ended March 31, 2020 has been impacted due to government imposed restrictions related to the COVID-19 outbreak. In reliance on the SEC Order, we will endeavor to file the quarterly report no later than June 29, 2020, which is within 45 days from the original due date.
