Decision to Restate Prior Period Financial Statements for Fiscal 2018 and 2017
The Company identified inadvertent errors in the accounting for certain shared-settled contingent consideration ("Contingent Consideration") relating to its acquisition of CMP Wellness in May 2017, Summit Innovations in May 2018, and Hybrid Creative in July 2018. In connection with those acquisitions, Contingent Consideration relating to the respective earnout arrangements were recorded as equity. Upon further evaluation, the Company determined that the Contingent Consideration should have been accounted for as liabilities with changes in the fair value recorded in the Company's consolidated statements of operations.
The Company expects the corrected misstatements to have the following impact on its restated annual consolidated financial statements:
- Increase net loss from $10.2 million to $24.3 million during its fiscal year ended August 31,2018;
- Increase net income from $0.1 million to $1.7 million during its fiscal year ended August 31,2017;
- No impact on its net revenue or gross profit for any of the restated fiscal periods; and
- No impact on its cash flows from operations for any of the restated fiscal periods.
The Company intends to file such amended reports as soon as practicable.
Management has concluded that the Company's internal control over financial reporting and its disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the end of the respective restatement periods. The Company will amend its disclosures pertaining to the evaluation of such internal controls and procedures, as appropriate, in connection with the amended 10-K and 10-Q filings. In February 2019, the Company engaged a national accounting advisory firm to assist with the design and implementation of its internal controls over financial reporting based on the criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.
