PART III — NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
The Registrant is externally managed by its Manager, Redwood Mortgage Corp. (“RMC”). RMC provides the personnel and services necessary to conduct business as the Registrant has no employees.
RMC encountered challenges as a result of the resignation of a key accounting team member due to personal circumstances during the first quarter of 2021. This team member had joined the accounting department of RMC within the past four months and was replacing a long-time employee who had resigned in the latter half of 2020. This unforeseen resignation required the manager to reallocate responsibilities among the remaining team members and to utilize experienced contract professionals to complete the work while being constantly mindful of maintaining proper segregation of duties and other internal control and compliance requirements. This reallocation was more time consuming, difficult and challenging due to the remote working conditions resulting from the ongoing shelter-in-place orders associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in delayed work product and the filing of the Form 10-Q.
PART IV — OTHER INFORMATION
|(1)||Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification|
|(Name)||(Area Code)||(Telephone Number)|
|(2)||Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s). 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? Yes ☐ No ☒|
|If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.|
