PART III -- NARRATIVE
 
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
 
The Company’s filing of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 has been delayed due to the transition time necessitated by the Company’s recent change in its auditors. This delay could not have been eliminated by the Company without unreasonable effort and expense.

More specifically, the delay is attributable in large part to the complexity of accounting for the Company’s multiple business combinations, the coordination of the transition of responsibilities between the Company’s prior and new independent registered public accounting firms, and additional procedures on purchase accounting and inventory following the Company’s recent receipt of a subpoena from the Chicago Regional Office of the SEC requiring the production of various documents.

In addition, the Company was not in compliance with a certain loan covenant in its credit facility and had not yet received a written waiver from the lender for such non-compliance as of the due date of the Form 10-Q. The Company has been in discussions with the lender with respect to the written waiver, which the Company expects to receive.

If answer is no, identify report(s). Yes o No x

The quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 has not yet been filed.
(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?  Yes x  No o





 
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.

In the third and fourth quarters of 2015, the Company acquired three additional operating businesses as subsidiaries. The earnings statement with respect to the quarter ended September 30, 2015, the corresponding period for the last fiscal year, included only a short period of operations for one of the three businesses, acquired in the third quarter of 2015, and did not include the operations of the other two businesses, acquired in the fourth quarter of 2015. The earnings statement for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 will reflect the Company’s results of operations for all of its subsidiaries, including these three businesses, throughout that period.
