SECTION 8 - OTHER EVENTS
Item 8.01 Other Events
GroveWare Technologies Ltd. (the “Company”) was unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2012 (the “Report”) on or before November 14, 2012 due to disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy. Specifically, key personnel in the Company’s financial reporting and disclosure functions were temporarily unable to access the Company’s office, communications systems, accounting records and other information necessary for the preparation of the Report due to impediments to traveling and other adverse circumstances in the Toronto area caused by Hurricane Sandy. Moreover, the Company’s outside accountant was heavily impacted at work and had to put in considerable overtime there, precluding his ability to work on the Company’s financials. As such, the Company intends to file the Report in reliance upon the order issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 14, 2012 (the “Order”) conditionally exempting reporting persons affected by Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath from certain filing requirements imposed by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), for the period from October 29, 2012 to November 20, 2012. As further set forth in Exchange Act Release No. 68224, the Order provides that quarterly reports due during such period for reporting persons qualifying for relief will be considered to have a due date of November 21, 2012 instead of November 14, 2012. The Company intends to file the Report by November 21, 2012.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
