The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense
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

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.
AZZ Inc. (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended November 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-Q”) within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense for the reasons described below.

As previously disclosed in a Form 8-K filed with the Commission on January 9, 2018, the Company, upon the recommendation of the Company’s management and in consultation with the Company’s Audit Committee and the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, BDO USA, LLP, determined that the Company historically should have accounted differently for certain contracts within its Energy Segment. As part of the review, the Company is currently evaluating if there are any significant impacts to the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended February 28, 2015 and 2017, and the fiscal year ended February 29, 2016, as contained in its 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K and the previously issued unaudited financial statements contained in its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended May 31, 2017 and August 31, 2017. The analysis is ongoing, and the Company cannot yet estimate when it will be completed.

The Company is working diligently and expeditiously towards completion of the review. However, due to the time and effort involved and the potential carryover effects of the review on future periods, the Company is unable file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended November 30, 2017 until such review is completed.
