InnSuites Hospitality Trust (the “Company” or “IHT”) is providing the following update on the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020.
As result of the global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and by state order, employees and management are practicing social distancing, working from home and working flexible hours. Additionally, the Company has been impacted by the challenges to its business and the hospitality industry in general caused by the COVID virus, resulting in a tremendous drain on its resources. Also, the Company has been working with its audit firm, to provide the necessary audit support while also dealing with the additional workload caused to the COVID-19 virus. In light of these factors, the Company now believes it will be unable to compile and review certain information required in order to permit the Company to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020.
On March 4, 2020 the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) issued an Order (Release No. 34-88318) under Section 36 of the Exchange Act granting exemptions from specified provisions of the Exchange Act and certain rules thereunder (the “Order”). The Order provides that a registrant subject to the reporting requirements of Exchange Act Section 13(a) or 15(d), and any person required to make any filings with respect to such a registrant, is exempt from any requirement to file or furnish materials with the Commission under Exchange Act Sections 13(a), 13(f), 13(g), 14(a), 14(c), 14(f), 15(d) and Regulations 13A, Regulation 13D-G (except for those provisions mandating the filing of Schedule 13D or amendments to Schedule 13D), 14A, 14C and 15D, and Exchange Act Rules 13f-1, and 14f-1, as applicable, where certain conditions are satisfied.
The Company is relying on this Order and is furnishing this Current Report on Form 8-K by the original filing deadline of the report. The Company currently expects to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K approximately 45 days after April 30, 2020. The Company will evaluate its need for an additional extension under Rule 12b-25 at that time, as contemplated by the Order.
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.
