Item 8.01.                                        Other Events.


As previously disclosed, on May 14, 2017, KII Liquidating Inc. (formerly Katy Industries, Inc.) (the “Company”) and certain of its wholly-owned direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries (collectively with the Company, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”) seeking relief under Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”).  These cases (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) are being jointly administered under the caption “In re Katy Industries, Inc., et al.,” Case No. 17-11101.  The Debtors continue to operate their businesses as “debtors-in-possession” under the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and orders of the Bankruptcy Court.


On September 26, 2017, the Debtors filed their monthly operating report for the period of July 29, 2017 — August 26, 2017 (the “Monthly Operating Report”) with the Bankruptcy Court.  The Monthly Operating Report is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.


Cautionary Statement Regarding the Monthly Operating Report


The Company cautions investors and potential investors not to place undue reliance upon the information contained in the Monthly Operating Report which was not prepared for the purpose of providing the basis for an investment decision relating to any of the securities of the Company.  The Monthly Operating Report is limited in scope, covers limited time periods, and has been prepared solely for the purpose of complying with the monthly reporting requirements of the Bankruptcy Court.  The Monthly Operating Report was not audited or reviewed by independent accountants, was not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, is in a format prescribed by applicable bankruptcy laws, and is subject to future adjustment and reconciliation.  There can be no assurance that, from the perspective of an investor or potential investor in the Company’s securities, the Monthly Operating Report is complete.  The Monthly Operating Report also contains information for periods which are shorter and otherwise different from those required in the Company’s periodic reports pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and such information might not be indicative of the Company’s financial condition or operating results for a period that would be reflected in the Company’s financial statements or in its reports pursuant to the Exchange Act.  Information set forth in the Monthly Operating Report should not be viewed as indicative of future results.
