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.

 

Polished.com Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022 (“Second Quarter 10-Q”) within the prescribed time period because it requires additional time to complete the investigation described below.

 

The Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (“Audit Committee”) recently began an independent investigation regarding certain allegations made by certain former employees related to the Company’s business operations. The investigation is ongoing, and the Audit Committee continues to work diligently with independent counsel and consultants to complete the investigation as soon as possible. The Company cannot predict the duration of the investigation, eventual scope, its outcome, or its impact on the Company’s financial results. As a result of the additional time required to complete the investigation, the Company has not finalized its financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2022. The Company expects that it will finalize its financial statements and file the related Second Quarter 10-Q as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the investigation, but does not anticipate that it will be in a position to file the Second Quarter 10-Q on or before the fifth calendar date following the required filing date as prescribed in Rule 12b-25.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Form 12b-25 includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended, including statements regarding the outcome of the Audit Committee investigation and the completion of matters necessary to permit the filing of the Second Quarter 10-Q. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, contained in this Form 12b-25 are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements contained in this Form 12b-25 may be identified by the use of words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “contemplate,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “seek,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “target,” “aim,” “should,” “will”, “would,” or the negative of these words or other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. Forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s current expectations and are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Further, certain forward-looking statements are based on assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control and which could materially affect results. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, among other things, those described more fully in the section titled “Risk Factors” of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Forward-looking statements contained in this Form 12b-25 are made as of this date, and the Company undertakes no duty to update such information except as required under applicable law.
