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.

 

Solitron Devices, Inc. (the "Company") experienced delays in the preparation and review of its financial statements for the quarter ended August 31, 2016 due to i) Hurricane Matthew causing the closing of the Company’s offices from the afternoon of October 5 through October 10; and ii) the Company's continued efforts to appropriately staff the Company's financial and accounting function in light of the departure of the Director of Finance. As a result, the Company is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q in a timely manner without unreasonable effort or expense. The Company anticipates that it will file the Form 10-Q within the five day extension period provided by Securities Exchange Act Rule 12b-25.

(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).

 

     x  Yes          o  No

 

(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?

 

     x Yes          o  No

 

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.

 

For the quarter ended August 31, 2016, the Company expects to report revenue of approximately $1,875,000 as compared to $2,212,000 for the quarter ended August 31, 2015, and to report a net loss significantly higher than the net loss of $178,000 for the quarter ended August 31, 2015. The majority of the increased net loss is expected to be due to costs associated with the separation agreement the Company entered into with its former CEO and certain proxy reimbursement expenses as reported in the Company’s 8-K filing on July 27, 2016. These costs include the $411,000 severance payment, $45,000 for COBRA benefits, $19,000 for the vehicle, $22,000 of payroll taxes, $170,000 of proxy reimbursement expenses, and approximately $100,000 of legal expenses. In addition, for accounting purposes, $153,000 of the $2,289,000 aggregate purchase price paid to the former CEO for his common stock and stock options is expected to be recognized as compensation cost in the August 31, 2016 quarter, with the balance recognized as a cash flow from financing activities and charged to Treasury Stock in the equity section of the Balance Sheet. Bookings in the quarter ended August 31, 2016 were $1,828,000 as compared to $408,000 in the quarter ended August 31, 2015.

 

The information provided above are forward-looking statements and are based on the Company’s anticipated changes from the prior year period. Although the Company believes these statements are based on reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that these statements will prove correct. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include any uncertainties encountered by the Company or any necessary changes that may result in connection with completing the review and preparation of the financial statements and related disclosures contained in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended August 31, 2016. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual outcomes may vary materially from those indicated.
