Reason for this Amendment
This Amendment No. 1 on Form 10-K/A (the “Amendment”) amends the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Annual Report”) of Interpace Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”), as originally filed (the “Original Filing”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 22, 2020 to add the following disclosure regarding reliance by the Company on the SEC Order issued March 25, 2020 pursuant to Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), granting exemptions from specified provisions of the Exchange Act and certain rules thereunder (Release No. 34-88465) (the “Order”). This Amendment is being filed to include the disclosure below in accordance with the Order.
Reliance on SEC Relief from Filing Requirements
The Company filed the Original Filing in reliance on the Order, permitting the delay in filing due to circumstances related to COVID-19. The Company filed, on March 30, 2020, a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “March 30 Form 8-K”) indicating its intention to rely on the Order. As stated in the March 30 Form 8-K, the Company required additional time to finalize the Annual Report due to circumstances related to COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. The effects of COVID-19 have limited the abilities of the Company’s employees to conduct normal business activities. This, in turn, delayed the Company’s ability to complete its audit and prepare the Original Filing.
In accordance with Rules 12b-15 and 13a-14 under the Exchange Act, the Company has also amended Part IV, Item 15 to include currently dated certifications pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 from the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer. Because no financial statements have been included in this Amendment, and this Amendment does not contain or amend any disclosure with respect to Items 307 and 308 of Regulation S-K, paragraphs 3, 4 and 5 of the certifications have been omitted. Similarly, because no financial statements have been included in this Amendment, certifications pursuant to Section 906 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 have been omitted. Except as described above, this Amendment does not amend, modify or update the information in, or exhibits to, the Original Filing, and the Company has not updated disclosures included therein to reflect any subsequent developments or events. This Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Filing and with our other filings made with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the Original Filing.
