 ☒

(a)

The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

  

  

  

 ☒

(b)

The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-CEN or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and

  

  

  

  

(c)

The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.

 

PART III -- NARRATIVE

 

 

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

 

ABCO Energy, Inc. cannot timely file its Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”), originally due on May 15, 2020, due to disruptions from to the unprecedented conditions surrounding the outbreak and spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic (“COVID-19”). The Company availed itself of an extension to file its Quarterly Report in reliance on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Order Under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Granting Exemptions From The Reporting and Proxy Delivery Requirements For Public Companies, Release No. 34-88465, dated March 25, 2020 (the “Order”). The Order provided the Company with a 45-day extension period, which can be subsequently extended by this Form 12b-25.

 

Such delays have been 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, 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.
