(NASDAQ:GURE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China today announced that it has filed a Form 12b-25, a Notification of Late Filing, with the Securities and Exchange Commission in order to extend the due date of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”) for five calendar days, as permitted by Rule 12b-25 under the Securities Exchange Act.

In its Form 12b-25 filing the company has advised that the Quarterly Report could not be filed within the prescribed time period due to the fact that the Company was unable to finalize its financial results without unreasonable expense or effort, which resulted partially from circumstances related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak. Specifically, (a) the Company’s receipt of information from certain third parties related to the completion of its interim financial information has been delayed, and (b) the Company’s personnel responsible for its financial reporting function had been adversely affected due to the city lockdown measures in China. As a result, the Company could not solicit and obtain the necessary review of the Quarterly Report in a timely fashion prior to the due date of the report.
