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 reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without
unreasonable effort or expense;
X     (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.
 
PART III
NARRATIVE
 
State below in reasonable detail the reasons 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.
 
Sequential Brands Group, Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to timely file the Form 10-K (the “10-K”) without unreasonable effort or expense.  The outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S. has caused state and local governments in New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area to institute various measures to stem the spread of COVID-19 which has dislocated workers, including our employees, who are working on finalizing the 10-K, and has resulted in delays in processing information.  The Company views this delay as temporary and plans to file the 10-K within the coming days.
