Item 8.01 Other Events
The Corporation is unable to meet the filing deadline for its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 due to circumstances related to COVID-19. The Corporations China subsidiary is in Changsha, Hunan, which is one of the closest capital cities to Wuhan, where coronavirus is believed to have originated. Our offices were closed upon orders of the local governments for over two months, and employees were prohibited from going into work. In view of these circumstances, we are unable to provide our auditors and accountants with up to date financial records. We are also unable to obtain bank confirmations in a timely manner as they had also been closed, and are currently short of staff and back logged items.
The Corporation is relying on SEC Release No. 34-88318 dated March 4, 2020 to delay the filing of its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 for an extension on the filing due date to 45 days after the original due date and will work diligently to comply with such requirements.
Coronavirus Impact (COVID-19)
Due to the recent outbreak of the coronavirus reported in many countries worldwide, local and federal governments have issued travel advisories, canceled large scale public events and closed schools. In addition, companies have begun to cancel conferences and travel plans and require employees to work from home. Global financial markets have also experienced extreme volatility and disruptions to capital and credit markets.
We are unable to predict the impact of the coronavirus on our operations at this time. Adverse events such as health-related concerns about working in our offices, the inability to travel, potential impact on our business partners and customers, and other matters affecting the general work and business environment could harm our business and delay the implementation of our business strategy. The adverse events may also adversely impact our ability to raise capital or to continue as a going concern. We continue to monitor the recent outbreak of the coronavirus on our operations.
