Nothing in this form shall be construed to imply that the Commission has verified any information contained herein .
If the notification relates to a portion of the filing checked above, identify the Item(s) to which the notification relates:
Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc. (the “Company” ) filed a Form 12b-25 on September 29, 2017 (the “Initial Filing”) with respect to its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017 (the “Form 10-K”). The Company had originally filed the 12b-25 for an extension due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey. The Commission has now issued an order (Exchange Act Release No. 81760) as a result of which the initial due date for the Form 10-K was extended from September 28, 2017 to October 10, 2017. Although the Company is continuing to work diligently on the Form 10-K, they believe more time is needed to finalize the Form 10-K, and as a result, they are amending the Initial Filing to claim the 12b-25 extension from the extended date of October 10, 2017.

PART III - NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
The Company is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2017 by the prescribed due date (initially September 28, 2017, but extended to October 10, 2017 by the Commission’s Exchange Act Release No. 81760) without undue hardship and expense due to the effects of Hurricane Harvey. The Company’s offices were closed from August 28, 2017 through October 2, 2017 as a result of the storm, resulting in delay of access to relevant databases, availability of necessary personnel and other parties’ ability to timely review and finalize the Form 10-K. The Company undertakes the responsibility to file the Form 10-K by no later than fifteen days after the extended due date of October 10, 2017.
