Amendment Description This Amendment No. 1 (this "Amendment") to Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2018, amends KushCo Holdings, Inc.'s (the "Company") Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2018, which was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 29, 2018 (the "Original Filing"). In connection with the preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the fiscal quarter ended February 28, 2019, the Company identified inadvertent errors in the accounting for certain shared-settled contingent consideration obligations relating to the Company’s acquisition of CMP Wellness in May 2017, Summit Innovations in May 2018, and the Hybrid Creative in July 2018. In connection with those acquisitions, contingent equity consideration relating to certain earn-out arrangements were accounted for as equity. Upon further evaluation, the Company determined that the share-settled contingent consideration should have been accounted for as liabilities with fair value changes recorded in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations. This amendment is being filed solely to (i) restate the financial statements for the accounting error described above and as further described in Notes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 14 and 18 to the financial statements (and make corresponding changes to Risk Factors and the Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations sections in this Amendment) and (ii) amend Item 9A (Controls and Procedures). Generally, no changes have been made to the Original Filing other than to add the information as described above. This Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Filing. This amendment speaks as of the date of the Original Filing and does not modify or update in any way the disclosures made in the Original Filing, except as required to reflect the revisions discussed above.
