On April 8, 2019, i3 Verticals, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Form 8-K”) reporting under Item 2.01 of the Original Form 8-K that on April 3, 2019, the Company, through i3 Verticals, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“i3 LLC”), and i3-Bearcat, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly owned subsidiary of i3 LLC, completed its acquisition of Northeast Texas Data, LLC, a Texas limited liability company and Graves Humphries Stahl, LLC, a Texas limited liability company (the “Net Data Acquisition”). In the Original Form 8-K, the Company indicated that the financial information required by Item 9.01(a) of Form 8-K and pro forma financial information required by Item 9.01(b) of Form 8-K (together, the “Item 9.01 Information”), which was not included in the Original Form 8-K, would be filed by amendment to the Original Form 8-K not later than seventy-one (71) calendar days after the date that the Original Form 8-K was required to have been filed.
On May 3, 2019, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), pursuant to its authority under 3-13 of Regulation S-X, granted the Company a waiver (the “Waiver”) from the requirements to file the Item 9.01 Information referenced in the Original Form 8-K regarding the Net Data Acquisition that otherwise would have been required under Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X. The Company requested the Waiver of the requirements of Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X for the Net Data Acquisition because it believed the income test under Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X produced a disproportionate result as compared to the asset test and investment test under Rule 3-05 of Regulation S-X as well as compared to the Company’s overall revenues.
This Amendment No. 1 on Form 8-K/A is being filed solely for the purpose of revising Item 9.01 of the Original Form 8-K to reflect that, as a result of the receipt of the Waiver, the Item 9.01 Information will not be filed. Set forth below is revised Item 9.01, which supersedes and replaces Item 9.01 of the Original Form 8-K. Except as set forth below, the information set forth in the Original Form 8-K remains unchanged.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
(a) Financial statements of businesses acquired
The Company received a waiver from the SEC from the requirement to provide the financial statements otherwise required by Item 9.01(a). Accordingly, those financial statements will not be filed.
(b) Pro forma financial information
The Company received a waiver from the SEC from the requirement to provide the pro-forma financial information otherwise required by Item 9.01(b). Accordingly, that pro-forma financial information will not be filed.
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.
