|Item 8.01||Other Events|
On April 30, 2020, STWC Holdings, Inc., a Colorado corporation (the “Company”), announced that in light of the circumstances and uncertainty surrounding the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the Company’s business, customers, employees, consultants, service providers, stockholders, investors and other stakeholders, the Company’s management has determined that the Company will delay the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 31, 2020 (the “Annual Report”) by up to 45 days in accordance with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) March 25, 2020 Order (Release No. 34-88465) (the “Order”), which allows for the delay of certain filings required under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Company’s operations and business have experienced disruption due to the unprecedented conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic spreading throughout the United States and elsewhere, causing disruptions to the Company’s business operations, and management is currently unable to timely review and prepare the Annual Report or determine COVID-19’s impact on the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020. The Company will file its Annual Report by no later than June 15, 2020, the next business day which is 45 days after the original due date of its Annual Report.
Due to the speed with which the COVID-19 situation is developing and evolving, there is uncertainty around its ultimate impact; therefore, the negative impact on the Company’s financial position, operating results and liquidity cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, but the impact could be material.
In addition, the Company is supplementing its disclosure in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 31, 2019 and its subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K, with the following risk factor:
A pandemic, epidemic or outbreak of an infectious disease in the markets in which we operate or that otherwise impacts our facilities or suppliers could adversely impact our business.
If a pandemic, epidemic, or outbreak of an infectious disease including the recent outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, or other public health crisis were to affect our markets or facilities or those of our suppliers, our business could be adversely affected. Consequences of the coronavirus outbreak are resulting in disruptions in or restrictions on our ability to travel. If such an infectious disease broke out at our office, facilities or work sites, our operations may be affected significantly, our productivity may be affected, our ability to complete projects in accordance with our contractual obligations may be affected, and we may incur increased labor and materials costs. If the customers with which we contract are affected by an outbreak of infectious disease, service work may be delayed or cancelled, and we may incur increased labor and materials costs. If our subcontractors with whom we work were affected by an outbreak of infectious disease, our labor supply may be affected, and we may incur increased labor costs. In addition, we may experience difficulties with certain suppliers or with vendors in their supply chains, and our business could be affected if we become unable to procure essential equipment, supplies or services in adequate quantities and at acceptable prices. We could incur substantial delays in obtaining necessary permits to operate our business. Further, infectious outbreak may cause disruption to the U.S. economy, or the local economies of the markets in which we operate, cause shortages of materials, increase costs associated with obtaining materials, affect job growth and consumer confidence, or cause economic changes that we cannot anticipate. Overall, the potential impact of a pandemic, epidemic or outbreak of an infectious disease with respect to our market or our facilities is difficult to predict and could adversely impact our business. In response to the COVID-19 situation, federal, state and local governments (or other governments or bodies) are considering placing, or have placed, restrictions on travel and conducting or operating business activities. At this time those restrictions are very fluid and evolving. We have been and will continue to be impacted by those restrictions. Given that the type, degree and length of such restrictions are not known at this time, we cannot predict the overall impact of such restrictions on us, our customers, our subcontractors and supply chain, others that we work with or the overall economic or governmental environment. As such, the impact these restrictions may have on our financial position, operating results and liquidity cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, but the impact likely would be material. In addition, due to the speed with which the COVID-19 situation is developing and evolving, there is uncertainty around its ultimate impact on public health, business operations and the overall economy; therefore, the negative impact on our financial position, operating results and liquidity cannot be reasonably estimated at this time, but the impact may be material.
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.
