If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)
|(a)||The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense|

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.
Algodon Group, Inc. (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 (the “Form 10-Q”) by November 14, 2018, the original due date for such filing because of the recent designation of Argentina as a highly inflationary economy. As a result, the functional currency of the Company’s Argentine subsidiaries will become the US dollar (“USD”) at the beginning of the quarter following the date that the economy was deemed to be highly inflationary, which was July 1, 2018. However, since the Argentine subsidiaries will continue to transact and maintain their financial records in the local currency, the Argentine Peso (“ARS”), remeasurement of the books and records of the Argentine subsidiaries from ARS to USD is required by applicable provisions of the Accounting Standards Codification.
As a result, the Company cannot, without unreasonable effort or expense, file its Form 10-Q on or prior to the original due date. The Company anticipates that it will be able to file the Form 10-Q within the extension period provided under Rule 12b-25.
