PART II — RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)

 

If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)

 

  (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
     
[X] (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K or Form N-SAR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q, or portion thereof will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
     
  (c) The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.

 

PART III — NARRATIVE

 

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

 

We were unable to file our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 (the “Quarterly Report”) within the prescribed time period because of technical connectivity difficulties between our filing server and the Commission’s EDGAR server. The Quarterly Report was completed, executed and ready to be filed with the Commission prior to the 5:30 p.m. Eastern time deadline for acceptance of filings on November 14, 2016, the due date for the filing, and we attempted to commence transmission of the Quarterly Report on the SEC’s EDGAR system prior to such deadline. In spite of our best efforts to submit the Quarterly Report with the Commission on a timely basis, our filing server was unable to do so due to such connectivity issues.  We intend to submit a written request for a date adjustment for the filing date to the Commission for the acceptance date to be changed from November 15, 2016 to November 14, 2016.  However, as a precautionary matter, we are submitting this Form 12b-25 to ensure that we remain timely in our periodic filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

If the answer is no, identify report(s).
   
  [X] Yes [  ] No
   
(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
