Iconic Brands, Inc. (the “Registrant”) is filing this Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with respect to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022 (the “Form 10-Q”). The compilation, dissemination and review of the information required to be presented in the Form 10-Q for the relevant period, including, without limitation, the financial statements to be included therein, has imposed time constraints that have rendered timely filing of the Form 10-Q impracticable without undue hardship and expense to the Registrant. The Registrant undertakes the responsibility to file, and anticipates that it will file, the Form 10-Q no later than five days after its original prescribed due date.

☒ Yes     ☐ No

 

 

 

 

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

 

The Registrant expects there will be significant changes to its Balance Sheet, Statement of Operations and Statement of Stockholder's Equity as compared to the information provided in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021.

 

 

On July 26, 2021, the Registrant completed the acquisition of TopPop LLC (“TopPop”) and an equity financing and exchange transaction (the “Transactions”). As reported in the Registrant’s Current Report on Form 8-K dated July 27, 2021, as amended, the Registrant’s Proforma Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2021 indicates there was an approximately $55 million increase in assets and an approximately $34 million increase in liabilities as a result of the Transactions. In addition, as a result of the Transactions, there will be material increases in sales and expenses as the Registrant consolidates the TopPop business into its operations. The Registrant expects those changes to be reflected in its unaudited financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 to be included in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2022.
