PART III — NARRATIVE

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.

As previously reported, Volt Information Sciences, Inc. (“Company”) is in the process of restating its financial statements as at and for the fiscal years ended October 28, 2007 and November 28, 2008 and quarterly periods through May 3, 2009 and has not determined whether any restatements of other periods prior to fiscal 2007 will be required.   The Company has filed a Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with respect to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 1, 2009, and has filed Notifications of Late filings on Form 12b-25 with respect to its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for its third quarter of fiscal 2009 and the first three quarters of fiscal 2010.  In order to be in a position to prepare audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2010, the Company must first prepare and finalize audited financial statements for fiscal years prior to October 31, 2010, which entails completing the restatement process.

As a result, the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2010 could not, without unreasonable effort and expense, be filed before its January 14, 2011 due date, nor can it be filed by January 31, 2011, the extended due date of such report.

(2)
Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed?  If answer is no, identify report(s). YES o  No  x
    
 
The Company has not filed its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended August 2, 2009, January 31, 2010, May 2, 2010 and July 31, 2009 nor its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended November 1, 2009, and, as noted above, may restate financial statements in various other reports.
    
(3)
Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?   YES  x  No  o
         
 
If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of results cannot be made.
 
As a result of the pending restatements discussed above in Part III, it is not possible to make a reasonable estimate of the Company’s consolidated results of operations for either of the fiscal years ended November 1, 2009 or October 31, 2010, nor to quantify any significant change in the Company’s consolidated results of operations between fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2010 until the Company prepares financial statements for fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2010 and determines how each fiscal year will be impacted by the restatements.
