Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

 

GB Sciences, Inc. (“the Company”) will be relying on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Order under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Modifying Exemptions from the Reporting and Proxy Delivery Requirements for Public Companies dated March 25, 2020 (Release No. 34-88465) (the “Order”) to delay the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2020 (the “Report”) due to the circumstances related to COVID-19. In particular, COVID-19 has caused severe disruptions in support from its staff and professional advisors. This has, in turn, delayed the Company’s ability to complete its audit and prepare the Annual Report. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company expects to file the Report for the year ended March 31, 2020 no later than August 13, 2020 (which is 45 days from the Report’s original filing deadline of June 29, 2020).

 

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Company will be including the following Risk Factor in its Report:

 

An occurrence of an uncontrollable event such as the COVID-19 pandemic may negatively affect our operations.

 

A significant portion of the Company’s business operations are contracted in certain employees and independent contractors who have recently been under “lock-down” orders or “shelter in place” recommendations for the national health crisis, including key personnel responsible for assisting the Company in the development of its financial statements. As a result of the travel and work restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company was unable to file a timely and accurate Annual Report on Form 10-K for its year ended March 31, 2020 by the prescribed date without undue hardship and expense to the Company.
