Item 8.01 Other Events.


Due to the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (“COVID-19”), XpresSpa Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), is filing this current report on Form 8-K to avail itself of an extension to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2019 (the “Annual Report”), originally due on March 30, 2020, relying on an order issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 25, 2020 pursuant to Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Release No. 34-88465) (the “Order”) regarding exemptions granted to certain public companies.


The COVID-19 pandemic and related events have resulted in the Company’s management devoting significant time and attention to assessing the potential impact of COVID-19 and those events on the Company’s operations and financial position and developing operational and financial plans to address those matters, which has diverted management resources from completing all of the tasks necessary to file the Annual Report by its March 30, 2020 due date.


As such, the Company will be relying upon the 45-day grace period provided by Order to delay filing of its Annual Report. The Company will file its Annual Report by no later than May 14, 2020, 45 days after the original due date of its Annual Report.


On March 19, 2020 and March 26, 2020, the Company filed Current Reports on Form 8-K announcing that the Company’s business has been materially adversely impacted by the recent coronavirus outbreak and associated restrictions on travel that have been implemented. In addition, on March 25, 2020, the Company announced that, during such period as it remained unable to reopen its spa locations for normal operations, it was advancing conversations with certain COVID-19 testing partners to develop a model for testing in U.S. airports.


The Company is supplementing its risk factors previously disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and its subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q with the following risk factors:


Our business, results of operations and financial condition has been and may continue to be materially adversely impacted by public health epidemics, including the recent coronavirus outbreak.


Our business, results of operations and financial condition has been and may continue to be materially adversely impacted if a public health epidemic, including the recent coronavirus outbreak, interferes with our ability, or the ability of our employees, workers, contractors, suppliers and other business partners to perform our and their respective responsibilities and obligations relative to the conduct of our business. A public health epidemic, including the coronavirus, poses the risk of disruptions from the temporary closure of third-party suppliers and manufacturers, restrictions on the shipment of our products, restrictions on our employees' and other service providers' ability to travel, the decreased willingness or ability of our customers to travel or to utilize our services and shutdowns that may be requested or mandated by governmental authorities. The extent to which the coronavirus continues to impact our results will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the coronavirus and the actions to contain the coronavirus or treat its impact, among others.
