Item 8.01 Other Events.

As reported by the Company on Form 12b-25 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 14, 2023, the Company experienced delays in obtaining and compiling the information required in order to complete the preparation of its financial statements to be included in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2022, attributable primarily to information access limitations experienced due to the cyber incident that occurred on December 30, 2022 (the “Cyber Incident”) and was reported by the Company on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on January 6, 2023 and further described by the Company on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 10, 2023. Accordingly, the Company was not able to complete the preparation, review and filing of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2022 within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense.

As of the date of this filing, the Company has lifted information access limitations implemented in response to the Cyber Incident and is in the process of working to complete the preparation, review and filing of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2022. As indicated by the Company on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 28, 2023, fiscal second quarter production was negatively impacted due to system constraints during the recovery. The Company as of the date of this filing continues to meet customer needs and continues to evaluate the impact to its operations, controls or financial results caused by the Cyber Incident during the applicable periods.
