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

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

As previously reported, the Company restated its financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2017 and 2018 and the interim periods through September 30, 2019, which were included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Form 10-K”) filed on June 9, 2020. Due to the delay in filing the Form 10-K as a result of the restatement, the Company was unable to dedicate its full resources to the preparation of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 (the “Form 10-Q”) and, as a result, the Company is unable to timely file, without unreasonable effort or expense, the Form 10-Q. The Company intends to file the Form 10-Q within the five-day extension period.
