State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
urban-gro, Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Form 10-K”) in a timely manner without unreasonable effort and expense. The Company previously relied on the order (the “Order”) promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 25, 2020 in Release No. 34-88465 relating to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, to support the delay in the filing of the Form 10-K by May 14, 2020. On March 30, 2020, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K pursuant to the Order. Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has had unanticipated delays in completing its financial statements and the Form 10-K due to disruptions in the Company’s day-to-day operations resulting in limited access to the Company’s facilities and limited support from its staff and professional advisors. As a result, additional time is required by the Company to compile the necessary data to furnish to its professionals to complete the Form 10-K The Company currently anticipates that it will file the Form 10-K prior to the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date.

The Company expects to report a net loss of $8.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019 ($0.32 per share) compared to a net loss of $3.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2018 ($0.16 per share).

The Company anticipates reporting that the following items, among others, contributed to the year-over-year increase in net loss:
|•||$4.1 million increase in revenues, or 21% year-over-year, primarily due to increased sales volume;|
|•||$3.7 million increase in cost of sales, or 27% year-over-year, primarily due to an increase in sales of lower margin equipment, change in salary allocation, and an increase in payables for contractors for design services;|
