PART II RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)
If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)
 (a)The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
 (b)The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and
 (c)The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 10, 2023 by Amyris, Inc. (“we,” “us,” “our,” or the “Company”), together with certain of its subsidiaries, commenced the filing of voluntary petitions (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware beginning on August 9, 2023.

The Company’s financial, accounting and other administrative personnel have devoted substantially all of their time to address matters related to the Chapter 11 Cases, including, among other things, the maintenance of the Company’s ongoing operations, the development of the Company’s post-petition strategy. The commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases and these other matters have accordingly diverted the attention of the Company’s personnel and resources from the completion of the Company’s quarterly close procedures and the review of other financial and accounting matters required for the preparation of the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 (the “Q3 10-Q”). In addition, the Chapter 11 Cases involve various complex accounting implications on multiple aspects of the Company’s financial reporting and the Company’s accounting and financial reporting requirements in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) and United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) regulations. Accordingly, the Company is unable to file its Q3 10-Q by the prescribed date without unreasonable effort or expense due to a lack of sufficient personnel.

At this time, the Company cannot estimate when it will be able to file the Q3 10-Q.

The Company cautions that trading in the Company’s securities during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases is highly speculative and poses substantial risks. Trading prices for the Company’s securities may bear little or no relationship to the actual recovery, if any, by holders of the Company’s securities in the Chapter 11 Cases. The Company cannot be certain that holders of the Company’s common stock will receive any payment or other distribution on account of those shares following the Chapter 11 Cases.

(2)Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s).
Yes ☐ No ☒
 The Company’s Quarterly Report for the Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2023.
(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 ☒ No ☐
 The Company’s results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 differed significantly from its results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 due to adverse developments that occurred with respect to the Company’s business and liquidity, including events precipitating the Company commencing the Chapter 11 Cases.

The Company is filing operating reports with the Bankruptcy Court relating to periods subsequent to August 9, 2023 and will continue to file these operating reports as exhibits on Current Reports on Form 8-K.
