Black Ridge Oil & Gas, Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2019 (the “Form 10-Q”) within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense because management is in the process of finalizing the operating results for the quarterly period. Management has also been actively focused on facilitating the closing of the previously announced business combination between the Company’s sponsored special purpose acquisition company, Black Ridge Acquisition Corp., (“BRAC”), Allied Esports International, Inc. (“Allied Esports”) and WPT Enterprises, Inc. (“WPT”), pursuant to which both Allied Esports and WPT became wholly-owned subsidiaries of BRAC. This transaction closed on August 9, 2019.
