EXPLANATORY NOTE

Inuvo, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Amendment No. 1 (this “Amendment”) to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, originally filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on May 12, 2020 (the “Original Form 10-K”), solely to disclose (i) that the Company had filed the Original Form 10-K after the March 30, 2020 deadline otherwise applicable to such filing (the “Original Deadline”) in reliance on the 45-day extension provided by an order issued by the SEC under Section 36 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), dated March 4, 2020 (Release No. 34-88318), as modified and superseded by a new SEC order issued on March 25, 2020 (Release No. 34-88465) (collectively, the “Order”); and (ii) the reasons why the Company could not file the Original Form 10-K on a timely basis before the Original Deadline, as described below.

On March 30, 2020, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K with the SEC (the “Form 8-K”) to indicate its intention to rely on the Order for a filing extension in connection with the Company’s filing of the Original Form 10-K. Consistent with the Company’s statements made in the Form 8-K, the Company was unable to file the Original Form 10-K prior to the Original Deadline due to circumstances related to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In particular, COVID-19 has caused the Company’s office in San Jose, California to close due to a stay at home order in place for California residents and it has closed its Little Rock, Arkansas office and issued a work from home policy to protect its employees and their families from potential virus transmission among co-workers. Accordingly, the Company relied on the Order because it was unable to timely file the Original Form 10-K by the Original Deadline without undue hardship and expense to the Company due to COVID-19.

In addition, as required by Rule 12b-15 under the Exchange Act, new certifications by the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer are filed herewith as exhibits to this Amendment pursuant to Rule 13a-14(a) or 15d-14(a) of the Exchange Act. The Company is not including the certifications pursuant to Section 1350 of Chapter 63 of Title 18 of the United States Code (18 U.S.C. 1350) as no financial statements are being filed with this Amendment.

Except as described above, this Amendment does not modify or update disclosures in, or exhibits to, the Original Form 10-K. Furthermore, this Amendment does not change any previously reported financial results, nor does it reflect events occurring after the filing of the Original Form 10-K. Accordingly, this Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Original Form 10-K and the Company’s filings with the SEC subsequent to the filing of the Original Form 10-K.
