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-SAR 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

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.

Astec Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort and expense.  As previously disclosed in the Company’s Earnings Release, dated March 1, 2019, as filed on Form 8-K on the same date, the Company identified certain material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting. As a result, the Company needs additional time to complete the compilation of information and finalization of its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting for its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures to be filed as part of the 2018 Form 10-K.
The Company expects to file the 2018 Form 10-K on or before March 18, 2019, the prescribed due date under the fifteen calendar day extension period provided under Rule 12b-25.
This Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 may contain 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) and information relating to the Company that is based on the beliefs of the management of the Company. These forward looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including the risk that the evaluation described above results in adjustments to the consolidated financial statements and results of operations. 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.
