PART III — NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, or the transition report thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
Our quarterly report on Form 10-Q could not be filed within the prescribed time period. During the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the Registrant experienced the resignation of its Controller. Although the Registrant promptly replaced the Controller with a senior finance professional experienced in public company reporting, the disruption caused by the change in personnel resulted in delays in the preparation and presentation of financial information. These delays were not as severe as in the previous quarter, but nonetheless contributed to our inability to process and review the financial information required to file the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q by the date required without incurring undue hardship and expense.
The Registrant expects to file its Form 10-Q within the permitted extension period.
