Section 8 – Other Events
Item 8.01 Other Events
In light of the circumstances and uncertainty surrounding the effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic on the business, employees, consultants and service providers of AGRITEK HOLDINGS, INC. (the “Company”), the Company’s Board of Directors and management have determined that it will delay the filing of its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Annual Report”) by up to 45 days in accordance with the SEC’s March 4, 2020 Order (Release No. 34-88318) (the “Order”), which allows for the delay of certain filings required under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Company’s operations and business have experienced disruption due to the unprecedented conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic spreading throughout the United States and the world, specifically the fact that the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Sole Director has been unable to travel to the Company’s United States office located in Florida, and thus the Company’s business operations have been disrupted and it is unable to timely review and prepare the Company’s financial statements for the 2019 fiscal year. As such, the Company will be making use of the 45-day grace period provided by the SEC’s Order to delay filing of its Annual Report. The Company plans to file its Annual Report by no later than May 14, 2020, 45 days after the original due date of its Annual Report.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
