Exela Technologies, Inc. to Delay Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2019 Earnings Release and Conference Call and Announces Delay of Form 10-K Filing
IRVING, Texas, March 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exela Technologies, Inc. (“Exela” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: XELA), a location-agnostic global business process automation (“BPA”) leader across numerous industries, announced today that it will delay its earnings release and investor conference call for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2019, previously scheduled for 5:00 p.m. (ET) today. Exela has postponed its earnings release and conference call due to the delayed filing of its Form 10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2019, and the need to restate certain of its historical financial statements.
Exela plans to file a Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing, with the Securities and Exchange Commission, by March 17, 2020, which will provide the Company with a 15 calendar-day extension beyond the March 16, 2020 deadline within which to file the 2019 annual report on Form 10-K. Exela also plans to file a Form 8-K with the SEC on March 17, 2020, with additional details regarding the restatement of its historical financial statements.
Exela currently expects to file the Company's Form 10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2019, on or before March 31, 2020. Once that date is finalized, Exela will schedule an investor conference call to discuss the financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019. Although Exela is working diligently to complete the 2019 Form 10-K, and currently expects to complete and file these items by March 31, 2020, given factors such as potential work interruptions associated with the COVID-19 coronavirus, no assurance can be given that they will be filed within such period.
