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.
Core-Mark Holding Company, Inc. (the Company) is unable to file its 2005 Annual Report on Form 10-K by March 31, 2006, as a result of the need to restate the Companys audited consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2004 and for the period from August 23, 2004 to December 31, 2004 and the Companys unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the six months ended June 30, 2005, each included in the Companys registration statement on Form 10, and the Companys unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2005 included in the Companys Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2005, because of errors in those financial statements relating to the accounting of foreign currency translation adjustments related to intercompany balances. As discussed in the Companys Form 8-K filed on March 24, 2006 (the Form 8-K), the Company has determined that such financial statements should no longer be relied upon because of such errors. Specifically, the Company has determined that foreign currency translation adjustments related to intercompany balances of its Canadian branch were incorrectly recorded as a component of comprehensive income directly to stockholders equity because such intercompany balances were incorrectly thought to be of a permanent nature. Because such intercompany balances were being paid throughout the period, the foreign currency gains (or losses) on intercompany transactions should have been recorded as a gain (or loss) within the income statement. In addition, in connection with the restatement the Company will also be correcting an approximately $0.4 million inventory undervaluation error (and a corresponding overstatement of cost of goods sold) in its financial statements for the period from August 23, 2004 to December 31, 2004 and a related $0.4 million overvaluation error (and a corresponding understatement of cost of goods sold) in its financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2005.
As discussed in the Form 8-K, eleven material weaknesses in the Companys internal control over financial reporting have been identified and therefore the Company expects that the 2005 Annual Report on Form 10-K will include disclosure of managements conclusion that the Companys disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2005. A factor contributing to the need to delay the filing of the 2005 Annual Report on Form 10-K is the need for management to assess the effect, if any, of the eleven identified material weaknesses on financial statements for prior periods.
The Company intends to file its 2005 Annual Report on Form 10-K by Monday April 17, 2006.

PART IV OTHER INFORMATION
|(1)||Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification|
|(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 x No ¨|
|(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 ¨|
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.
The Companys consolidated results of operations for 2005 will vary significantly from 2004. For 2004, due to its emergence from bankruptcy in August 2004, the Companys financial statements are divided into portions: the period from January 1, 2004 to August 22, 2004 (Predecessor Company), and the period from August 23 to December 31, 2004 (Successor Company). Due to fresh-start accounting applied with differing effect to the Predecessor Company and Successor Company periods, the combined 2004 results should not be taken as indicative of the Companys historical results.
The Company currently expects that net income for 2005 will be approximately $14.5 million, compared to a total of $55.8 million in 2004 ($50.7 million for the Predecessor Company and $5.1 million (as restated) for the Successor Company). Net income for 2004 for the Predecessor Company included a net gain of $66.1 million on discharge of pre-petition debt. The Company currently expects that income from operations for 2005 will be approximately $44.3 million, compared to approximately $24.5 million (as restated) for 2004. The $24.5 million for 2004 is comprised of $12.7 million (as restated) for the Successor Company and $11.8 million for the Predecessor Company. The Company is currently in the process of finalizing its 2005 Annual Report on Form 10-K and accordingly the foregoing numbers are preliminary and subject to potential adjustment.
The Company anticipates that the effect of correcting the accounting error relating to the accounting of foreign currency translation adjustments as part of the restatement of prior periods will be to increase income from continuing operations before income taxes by approximately $2.4 million for the period from August 23, 2004 to December 31, 2004 and decrease income from continuing operations before income taxes by approximately $0.6 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2005. In connection with the restatement, the Company will also correct an approximately $0.4 million inventory undervaluation error (and a corresponding overstatement of cost of goods sold) in its financial statements for the period from August 23, 2004 to December 31, 2004 and a related $0.4 million overvaluation error (and a corresponding understatement of cost of goods sold) in its financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2005. The following table summarizes the effect of these adjustments:
