The Company is filing this Amendment solely to add disclosure that, in originally filing the 11-K, the Company relied on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Order under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Modifying Exemptions From the Reporting and Proxy Delivery Requirements for Public Companies dated March 25, 2020 (Release No. 34-88465) (“Order”). The disclosure under the heading “Reliance on Order” below is hereby added as an explanatory note of the 11-K.
Except as described above, this Amendment does not amend, modify or update the information in, or exhibits to, the 11-K in any way, and we have not updated disclosures included therein to reflect any subsequent developments or events. This Amendment should be read in conjunction with the 11-K.
RELIANCE ON ORDER
On June 24, 2020, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (“8-K”) to indicate its intention to rely on the Order due to time and resource constraints. As described in the Form 8-K, Nordstrom, Inc. devoted considerable time and resources to preparing and filing on time their Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended May 2, 2020 (the "10-Q") as a result of COVID-19 related disruptions. Accordingly, key personnel were not able to devote the requisite time and attention to the 11-K while focusing on the 10-Q. The Company filed the 11-K after the original deadline of June 29, 2020 and, in accordance with the relief provided by the Order, before the 45-day extension due date of August 13, 2020.
