PART II — RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)


  (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
x (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form  20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form  N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed  on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the  prescribed due date; and
  (c) The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.




State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


As previously disclosed by KushCo Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) in its Current Report on Form 8-K, as filed on April 9, 2019 (the “Prior 8-K”), the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors has determined that it is necessary to restate the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended August 31, 2018 and 2017 and unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the fiscal periods ended May 31, 2017, November 30, 2017, February 28, 2018, May 31, 2018 and November 30, 2018 (such restatements, the “Restatements”). The Restatements are being made as a result of inadvertent errors in the accounting for certain shared-settled contingent consideration (“Contingent Consideration”) relating to the Company’s acquisition of CMP Wellness in May 2017, Summit Innovations in May 2018, and Hybrid Creative in July 2018. In connection with those acquisitions, Contingent Consideration relating to the respective earnout arrangements were recorded as equity. Upon further evaluation, the Company determined that the Contingent Consideration should have been accounted for as liabilities with changes in the fair value recorded in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.


As a result of the Restatements described above, the Company is unable to complete its condensed consolidated financial statements and file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended February 28, 2019 (the “Q2 2019 Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date for such filing. The Company plans to file the Q2 2019 Form 10-Q as soon as practicable following the completion of the Restatements and currently expects to file the Q2 2019 Form 10-Q on or before the expiration of the 5 calendar day extension period provided in Rule 12b-25(b).

(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 the answer is no, identify report(s).  x 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?

x 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.


As described in Part III above, the Company continues work on the Restatements that were disclosed in the Prior 8-K. The Company anticipates that the adjustments included in the Restatements will affect the Company’s condensed consolidated interim financial statements as of and for the fiscal period ended February 28, 2019, which will be included in the Q2 2019 Form 10-Q, but is not currently able to provide a reasonable estimate regarding the results as of the date of this filing.
