H/Cell Energy Corporation (the “Company”) is unable to complete its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the first fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2018 (the “Quarterly Report”) prior to the filing deadline for the Quarterly Report on May 15, 2018 as the result of the need to complete financial statement preparation and disclosures in light of its acquisition of PVBJ Inc. (“PVBJ”) during the quarter ended March 31, 2018. Due to unforeseen complications involving the historical financial records of PVBJ, the Company could not finalize its financial statement preparation and disclosures for the first fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2018 without unreasonable effort and expense.
The Company expects to file its Quarterly Report within the extension period of five calendar days as provided under Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
