NARRATIVE

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

Compass Diversified Holdings (“Holdings”) and Compass Group Diversified Holdings LLC (the “Company,” and together with Holdings, “CODI,” “we” or “us”) were unable to file their Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 (the “CODI Annual Report”) within the prescribed time period because of timing issues related to the 5:30 p.m. Eastern time deadline for acceptance of filings and a filing by a former subsidiary business (“Former Subsidiary”) whose financial statements we incorporated by reference into the CODI Annual Report. The CODI Annual Report was completed, executed and ready to be filed with Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) prior to the 5:30 p.m. Eastern time deadline (the “EDGAR Cutoff Time”) for acceptance of filings on March 1, 2017, the due date for the Annual Report. In order to comply with applicable Commission rules, CODI incorporated by reference into the CODI Annual Report certain financial statements included in the Former Subsidiary’s annual report on Form 10-K (the “Former Subsidiary Annual Report”). It was therefore necessary for the CODI Annual Report to be filed immediately after the filing of the Former Subsidiary Annual Report. Notwithstanding the best efforts of both CODI and the Former Subsidiary to coordinate their respective filings, technical issues related to the software program used by Former Subsidiary caused the Former Subsidiary Annual Report to be filed only a few minutes prior to the EDGAR Cutoff Time which, in turn, caused a delay in the filing of the CODI Annual Report. As a result, the filing was not received until 5:31 p.m. Eastern time and was not accepted until 5:33 p.m. Eastern time, or three minutes following the EDGAR Cutoff Time. We intend to submit a written request for a date adjustment for the filing date to the Commission for the acceptance date to be changed from March 2, 2017 to March 1, 2017. As a precautionary matter, however, we are submitting this Form 12b-25 to ensure that we remain timely in our periodic filings under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
