PART II - RULES 12b-25 (b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)




The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;



The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K or Form N-SAR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q, or portion thereof will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and



The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.




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


Towerstream Corporation (the “Company”), without unreasonable effort or expense, is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 by the prescribed filing due date because the Company needs additional time to complete its financial statements and disclosures. As previously disclosed, on January 26, 2018, the Company entered into a forbearance agreement with the administrative agent to the lenders, and management is currently engaged in discussions with such stakeholders regarding extending such forbearance agreement. In consideration of the significant amount of time devoted by management with respect to such discussions, and the time required by management to evaluate fully and disclose the potential consequences of such discussions, the Company is unable to file its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense.
