Part III-Narrative

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q,
N-SAR or the transition report or portion thereof could not be filed within the
prescribed time period.

     On April 1, 2003, Hauser, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), and
its wholly owned subsidiaries, filed voluntary petitions for relief under
Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the "Bankruptcy Code") in the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California (the
"Bankruptcy Court") (Case Nos. LA 03-18788-BB, LA 03-18795-BB, LA 03-18798-BB,
and LA 03-18802-BB). Pursuant to a Bankruptcy Court order dated April 8, 2003,
the four cases are being jointly administered under Case No. LA 03-18788-BB.

     By letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission")
dated May 6, 2003, as further revised June 11, 2003, the Company requested
modification of its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act
Release No. 9660 (June 30, 1972) and the Commission's Staff Legal Bulletin No. 2
(April 15, 1997) (the "No-Action Request Letter"). Pursuant to the No-Action
Request Letter, the Company requested that the Commission allow it, while its
Chapter 11 case was pending, to file under cover of Form 8-K copies of the
monthly financial reports that are required to be filed with the Office of the
United States Trustee (the "Trustee") pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2015 and the
Trustee's Financial Reporting Requirements for Chapter 11 Cases (the "Trustee's
Reports") in lieu of continuing to file quarterly and annual reports under
Section 13(a) of the Exchange Act. In addition, because these Trustee's Reports
are not readily available in an electronic format, the Company requested, by
separate letter dated May 6, 2003, a continuing hardship exemption from EDGAR
filing pursuant to Rule 202 of Regulation S-T. On May 15, 2003, the Commission
granted the Company's request for a continuing hardship exemption conditioned
upon the grant of no-action relief, as requested by the Company in the No-Action
Request Letter. As of June 30, 2003, the Commission had not granted or denied
the Company's request for no-action relief.

     The Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2003 for the registrant
could not be filed within the prescribed period because of the burdens Hauser's
Chapter 11 case has imposed on Hauser's available human and financial resources.
Such inability could not have been eliminated by the registrant without
unreasonable effort or expense.

the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act

registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If the answer is no,
identify report(s).

                                                                  [x] Yes [ ] 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 [ ] No

estimate of the results cannot be made.
