Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

On March 4, 2020, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) issued an order under Section 36 (Release No. 34-88318) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) granting exemptions from specified provisions of the Exchange Act and certain rules thereunder (the “Order”). The Order provides that a registrant (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 12b-2) 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 a 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, where certain conditions are satisfied.

 

Verus International, Inc. (the “Company”) is furnishing this Current Report on Form 8-K to indicate its reliance on the Order in connection with the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended January 31, 2020 as a result of the circumstances set forth below.

 

A significant portion of the Company’s business operations are located in the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”) including certain of its key personnel responsible for assisting the Company in the preparation of its financial statements. As a result of the travel and work restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is unable to obtain financial records that it needs from its UAE based operations to permit the Company to file a timely and accurate Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for its quarter ended January 31, 2020 by the prescribed date without undue hardship and expense to the Company.

 

Accordingly, in reliance upon the Order, the Company expects to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q approximately 45 days after March 16, 2020.
