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.
Comstock Holding Companies, Inc. (the Company) has determined that it is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 (the 2017 Form 10-K) by the April 2, 2018 filing date without unreasonable effort or expenses.
As reported in the Companys Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 2, 2018, CDS Asset Management, L.C. (CAM), an entity wholly owned by the Company, entered into a Master Asset Management Agreement (the Agreement) with Comstock Development Services LC (CDS), an entity wholly owned by Christopher Clemente, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, as a critical component of the Companys strategic plan to transform its business model from for-sale homebuilding to commercial development, asset management and real estate services.
The Company requires additional time to review and assess the impact of the Agreement and the strategic plan on the subsequent event disclosure and disclosure related to its year-end financial statements and disclosures in the 2017 Form 10-K. The time, effort and staffing requirements necessary to complete the accounting and reviews of the impact of this transaction on the related financial statements and disclosures have been greater than expected. The Company expects to file the 2017 Form 10-K on or prior to the fifteen calendar day extension provided by Rule 12b- 25 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act).

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2017 were $45.4 million versus $41.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2016. The Company expects to report a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $3.5 million or $1.07 per diluted share in 2017 compared to a net loss of $9.3 million or $2.81 per diluted share in 2016. Included in the 2016 results are impairment charges, net of recovery, of $1.7 million or $(0.51) per diluted share. There were no impairment charges included in the 2017 results.
The Company intends to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date.
