Spark Networks SE (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 (the “Form 10-Q”), within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense due to the reasons described below. The Company is working diligently to file its Form 10-Q as soon as possible, but does not expect to be in a position to file the Form 10-Q by the due date of May 10, 2023. Additional time is needed for the Company to compile and analyze supporting documentation in order to complete the Form 10-Q and in order to permit the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to complete its review of the Form 10-Q. The Company expects to file its Quarterly Report, along with the interim financial statements, within the extension period of five calendar days as provided by Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
The Company does not expect to report financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023 that are materially different from the financial guidance range previously provided by the Company.
