PART III — NARRATIVE

 

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.

 

On March 20, 2012, the Ohio Air Quality Development Authority (“OAQDA”) approved an amendment to its 166 Direct Loan with the company which included a waiver for non-compliance with a financial covenant as of December 31, 2011. The OAQDA amendment was filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 8-K on March 26, 2012.

 

Following receipt of the OAQDA amendment, the company initiated discussions with the Ohio Department of Development (“ODOD”) seeking approval to use funds from a separate loan with the ODOD to repay a Promissory Note to a financial institution. As of March 30, 2012, the company’s request to the ODOD is still being actively considered.

 

The events occurring in late March 2012 which included the OAQDA loan amendment and subsequent discussions with the ODOD resulted in unreasonable time and cost burdens for the company to file its 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K by March 30, 2012.
