|Item 4.02||Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review|
On August 21, 2017, our independent auditors, Saturna Group Chartered Professional Accountants LLP, notified us that it believed there were errors in our annual audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2017, as included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 14, 2017.
Management further discussed the matter with our auditors and both parties agreed that certain transactions relating to the year ended March 31, 2017 were not appropriately accounted for, and our company determined that the effect of such misstatements were material. As a result, we have decided to restate the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2017. The financial statements included within the Annual Report noted above should no longer be relied upon.
Our company plans to file an amended Annual Report for the year ended March 31, 2017 in order to accurately restate our previously filed consolidated financial statements by September 11, 2017.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
