1. Next year, our company: (Total responses: n=40)
n=14 (35.00%) should have no difficulty with meeting the 10-K deadline of 60 days
n=13 (32.50%) might have no difficulty with meeting the 10-K deadline of 60 days
n=13 (32.50%) will definitely have difficulty of meeting the 10-K deadline of 60 days

2. This year, our company: (Total responses: n=39)
