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)




The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense



The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, 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 subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and



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




State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period. (Attach extra sheets if needed.)


Despite diligent efforts, the Registrant is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the “Form 10-K”) by the prescribed due date as a result of unexpected delays in the completion of its financial statements and related portions of the Form 10-K.  The delay is primarily due to multiple modifications of the Registrant’s four outstanding debt instruments held by Chicago Venture Partners, L.P. in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 and the determination of the proper application of ASC 470-50 and ASC 470-60 to such modifications. Such delays could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort and expense.


The Registrant anticipates that it will file its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 within the fifteen calendar day extension period provided by Rule 12b-25.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements:


This notification on Form 12b-25 contains certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and include words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “believes,” “intends” or words of similar meaning or the negatives thereof.  These forward-looking statements include, but are not necessarily limited to, statements about the Registrant’s results of operations to be reported in its annual report on Form 10-K and the Registrant’s ability to file its annual report on Form 10-K within the period prescribed under Rule 12b-25.



The forward-looking statements contained herein are subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, including the possibility that we may discover previously unknown issues relating to our financial statements or internal control over financial reporting and such issues may result in additional changes in the results of operation that we presently expect to report, possible further delays in finalizing our annual report on Form 10-K, including delays that extend beyond the 15-day period during which late filings are permitted, as well as other risks and uncertainties described in the reports that we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Any such result may cause volatility in our stock price, a loss of confidence in our management team and other potential negative effects on the Registrant.  If one of these risks or uncertainties occurs, actual results or outcomes may vary materially from those described in the forward-looking statements as expected, anticipated, believed, estimated, intended, planned or otherwise.  Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect circumstances or events that occur after the date the forward-looking statements are made.
