Part III - Narrative

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q,10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

On August 11, 2016, Katy Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into (i) an amendment and forbearance agreement with respect to its first lien credit facility (the “First Lien Credit Facility Amendment”); and (ii) an amendment with respect to its second lien credit facility (the “Second Lien Credit Facility Amendment” and, together with the First Lien Credit Facility Amendment, the “Credit Facility Amendments”). Pursuant to the First Lien Credit Facility Amendment, BMO Harris Bank N.A. (the “First Lien Lender”) agreed, among other things, to forbear from exercising its rights and remedies under the Company’s first lien credit facility in respect of existing defaults and certain other anticipated defaults for a period of up to six months (the “forbearance period”). The First Lien Lender may terminate the forbearance period under certain circumstances specified in the First Lien Credit Facility Amendment. Pursuant to the Second Lien Credit Facility Amendment, the lenders agreed to a further extension of credit in the amount of $5,750,000 (in addition to $750,000 of additional credit extended on July 22, 2016). The Second Lien Credit Facility Amendment additionally amends the Company’s second lien credit facility to grant the the administrative agent thereunder the option to convert, in whole or in part, the outstanding principal amount of existing term loan plus accrued and unpaid interest under the loan being converted, into such number of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to such amount of outstanding principal amount and accrued but unpaid interest divided by approximately $0.0697 per share (as such amount is proportionately adjusted for stock splits, reverse stock splits, stock combinations, stock dividends and other distributions and recapitalizations affecting the capital stock of the Company). In addition, on August 11, 2016, VPC SBIC I, LP acquired all of our outstanding preferred stock (the “Preferred Stock Purchase Transaction”).

The foregoing description of the Credit Facility Amendments and Preferred Stock Transaction is a summary only and does not purport to describe all of the terms thereof. The Company intends to file a Current Report on Form 8-K with respect to the Credit Facility Amendments, the Preferred Stock Transaction and certain related transactions no later than August 17, 2016. Investors and prospective investors are encouraged to read such Form 8-K in its entirety when it is available.

The process of negotiating with the Company’s stakeholders in connection with the Credit Facility Amendments and the Preferred Stock Purchase Transaction diverted significant management time and internal resources from the Company’s normal processes for reviewing and completing its financial statements and related disclosures. Additionally, pending completion of the Credit Facility Amendments, the Company had limited additional resources to engage outside professionals necessary to prepare and finalize its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended July 1, 2016 (the “Subject Report”). As a result, the Subject Report could not be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by the prescribed due date without unreasonable effort or expense.
