PART III – NARRATIVE State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period. DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022 (the “Second Quarter Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed date of August 9, 2022, without unreasonable effort or expense, for the reasons described below. As previously disclosed, the Audit and Finance Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) is conducting an internal investigation regarding certain financial reporting matters. The investigation is ongoing. The Audit Committee continues to work diligently with independent counsel and advisors to complete its investigation as soon as possible. However, the Company cannot predict the duration or outcome of the investigation. In the course of the investigation, the Company has also evaluated certain other accounting practices. As a result of this review, the Company anticipates certain adjustments will be made to the previously announced preliminary first quarter financial results, and the Company is currently evaluating whether fiscal year 2021 reported financial results also require adjustments. As previously disclosed, the Company has voluntarily contacted the SEC to advise it that an internal investigation is underway, and the Audit Committee intends to provide additional information to the SEC as its investigation proceeds. The Company intends to fully cooperate with the SEC regarding this matter. The Company will work to finalize its financial statements and review of internal controls and procedures, including the evaluation of any deficiencies in internal controls over financial reporting, as soon as practicable, but does not expect to be in a position to file the Second Quarter 10-Q within five calendar days following the prescribed due date. PART IV – OTHER INFORMATION (1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification Cherée H. Johnson (844) 848-0137 (Name) (Area Code) (Telephone Number) (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 ☐ No ☒ The Company was unable to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2022 (the “First Quarter 10-Q”). The Company is working toward filing the First Quarter 10-Q as soon as practicable. The First Quarter 10-Q continues to be delayed for the same reasons the Company is unable to file the Second Quarter 10-Q. (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 ☒ No ☐ If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made. On August 4, 2022, the Company issued a press release with a business update and select preliminary second quarter 2022 results, including a discussion of certain preliminary results as compared to prior periods. The press release was attached as an exhibit to the Company’s current report on Form 8-K furnished to the SEC on the same date. The Company is unable to provide a full comparison or reasonable estimate of second quarter 2022 results against the corresponding period for the last fiscal year because, as disclosed above, the Company is currently evaluating whether fiscal year 2021 reported financial results require adjustments.
