Item 8.01 Other Events.
On February 5, 2018, H/Cell Energy Corporation (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Form 8-K”) announcing the acquisition of PVBJ Inc., a New Jersey corporation (“PVBJ”). In the Form 8-K, the Company indicated that it would file the financial information required by Item 9.01(a) and 9.01(b) on an amended Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Amended Form 8-K”) not later than seventy-one (71) calendar days after the date that the Form 8-K was required to be filed, in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Amended Form 8-K was due April 19, 2018.
On April 19, 2018, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K announcing that: (i) the Company needed more time to complete the audited financial statements of PVBJ; (ii) the Company would not meet the deadline for the filing of the Amended Form 8-K; and (iii) the Company anticipated filing the Amended Form 8-K approximately the middle of May 2018.
On May 15, 2018, the Company filed a Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing, for its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 (the “March 31 Form 10-Q”). The Company noted that the inability to file the March 31 Form 10-Q was a result of the unforeseen complications involving the historical financial records of PVBJ.
The Company continues to work diligently to complete the financial statements of PVBJ, in order to file the Amended Form 8-K as well as the March 31 Form 10-Q as soon as possible, which the Company currently anticipates will be completed approximately the beginning of June 2018.
Pursuant to the requirement of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
