State below in reasonable detail why the Form 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR or the transition report portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period. (Attach extra sheets if needed.)

Cartesian, Inc. (the “Company”) could not file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2018 on or before the May 15, 2018 prescribed due date. As a result of the change in management and Board of Directors of the Company due to completion of the tender offer for the Company’s common stock by Cartesian Holdings, Inc. and the related acquisition of the Company by Cartesian Holdings, LLC, the Company requires additional time to complete the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.  The Company intends to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2018 as promptly as practicable, and expects that such filing will be made by the May 20, 2018 extended deadline.
