Davie, FL – August 13, 2015 – Vapor Group, Inc. (OTC.QB: “VPOR”), (the “Company” or “Vapor Group”), today announced that it had filed a Form NT for an extension of the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) of its second quarter 2015 Quarterly Report (the “Quarterly Report”).
The delay in the filing of the Quarterly Report is being caused by a backup in filings of reports which must be sequential starting with the restated Annual Report on Form 10-K which includes its 2014 restated and audited year-end financial statements, and its first quarter 2015 Quarterly Report.
As reported on form 8-K on May 20, 2015, the Company had stated that by mutual agreement with its auditors, it would re-audit and restate its 2014 Annual Report in order to add adjustments for “embedded conversion options” inside its convertible promissory notes – this is being done in the new filings. The audit of the 2014 Annual Report is being conducted by Anton & Chia, LLP, a PCAOB and CPAB registered firm, which is also performing the review of the Quarterly Report for the period ended March 31, 2015.
Dror Svorai, President and CEO, said, “The entire process of the restatement and the re-audit of our 2014 Annual Report has been extremely labor intensive, expensive and thorough. Since May, we have had an internal team working daily with our audit firm to make the adjustments required by the derivatives embedded in our convertible promissory notes, and to completely re-do the audit of 2014 that had been previously performed by our prior auditor. Today, facing the need to file the second quarter, we find ourselves near completion of the re-audit, and finalization of the first quarter’s report, but not there yet.” He added, “We expect to wrap up 2015 and the financials through June in the next week. Then, once again, we will be current in our filings. Personally, I thank you all for your patience with us during this difficult period.”
