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 reason 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, Form 11-K, Form N-CEN or Form N-CSR, 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 subject distribution report on Form 10-D, 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 why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. (the “Registrant”) has determined that it is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 (the “Form 10-K”) by the prescribed due date without unreasonable effort or expense primarily as a result of complexities arising from outstanding change order claims from CTCI Americas, Inc., the primary EPC contractor for the Bakersfield renewable fuels project, which is owned by the Registrant’s indirect wholly owned subsidiary. As a result, the Registrant requires additional time for compilation and review of certain information required to be included in the Form 10-K to insure adequate disclosure. The Registrant expects to file the Form 10-K on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are based on the Registrant’s current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect on the Registrant.

The Registrant’s forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties (some of which are beyond the Registrant’s control) and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from historical experience and present expectations or projections. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the Registrant’s ability to file timely its periodic reports, the impact on the Registrant’s business and financial condition, and the risks identified in the Registrant’s periodic filings under the Exchange Act. Should one of these risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results or outcomes may vary materially from those described as anticipated, believed, estimated, intended, or planned. The Registrant disclaims any obligation to update information contained in these forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
