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-Q (the “10-Q”) 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 and has resulted in delays in processing information.  The Company is in the process of completing its accounting procedures for the finalization of the Form 10-Q.  While this process is substantially complete, additional time is necessary to finalize all required supporting documentation which may affect the presentation in the Form 10-Q.  The Company views this delay as temporary and plans to file the 10-Q within the coming days.
