Explanatory Note


On January 6, 2021, Houston Wire & Cable Company (“HWCC”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Report”) reporting the completion of the sale of substantially all of the assets of its Southern Wire division (“Southern Wire”) to Southern Rigging Companies, LLC. This amendment is being filed for the sole purpose of amending Item 9.01 of the Original Report.


Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.


(b) Pro Forma Financial Information


HWCC has determined that the sale of Southern Wire did not represent a business disposition that is “significant,” as defined in Rule 11-01 of Regulation S-X, and therefore no pro forma financial information is required by Item 9.01(b).






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
