Item 2.02

Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On March 16, 2020, Kaleyra, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. A copy of the Company’s press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information contained in this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” with the Securities and Exchange Commission nor incorporated by reference in any registration statement filed by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

 

Item 8.01

Other Events

In accordance with the Securities and Exchange Commission Order Under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Granting Exemptions from Specified Provisions of the Exchange Act and Certain Rules Thereunder, SEC Release No. 34-88318, dated March 4, 2020 (the “Order”), the Company hereby discloses: (i) that it is relying on the relief provided by the Order in connection with the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 (the “Annual Report”), (ii) as the Company is headquartered in Milan, Italy, the ongoing lockdown and quarantine imposed by the Italian government in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency has made it impossible (a) for the Company and third parties in Italy to provide information to the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to enable the completion of the audit of the Company’s consolidated financial statements in time to allow for, or (b) to otherwise enable, the Company to complete the internal processes required to approve and file the Annual Report on a timely basis, and (iii) the Company expects to file the Annual Report on or before March 30, 2020.

The Company does not believe COVID-19 will have a material impact on its business, and the reason the Annual Report cannot be filed timely does not relate to the inability of any person, other than the Company, to furnish any required opinion, report, or certification.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain of the statements contained in this report should be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of U.S. federal securities laws. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the audit of the financial statements of the Company and the filing of the Annual Report, as well as the Company’s expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions, plans, prospects or strategies regarding the future revenues and the business plans of its management team. Any statements contained herein that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intends,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “would” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. The forward-looking statements contained in this report are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by the management of the Company in light of their respective experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments and their potential effects on the Company as well as other factors they believe are appropriate in the circumstances. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Company will be those anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond the control of the parties) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, including the mix of services utilized by the Company’s customers and such customers’ needs for these services, the ability of the Company to expand what it does for existing customers as well as to add new customers, that the Company will have sufficient capital to operate as anticipated, and the impact that the novel coronavirus and the illness, COVID-19, that it causes, as well as governmental responses to deal with the spread of this illness, may have on the Company’s operations, the demand for the Company’s products, global supply chains and economic activity in general. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of the assumptions being made prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required under applicable securities laws.
