Current Report
ITEM 4.02 NON-RELIANCE ON PREVIOUSLY ISSUED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS OR A RELATED AUDIT REPORT OR COMPLETED INTERIM REVIEW
On June 1, 2017, management of Visualant Incorporated (the “Company”) concluded that the previously filed unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Company as of and for the quarterly period ended December 31, 2016 required restatement to account for the subsequent determination by management that there had been a full impairment of goodwill as it relates to TransTech Systems. Inc., and such impairment was material to our financial statements.
As a result of the impairment, the consolidated financial statements for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 contained in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as filed with the Commission on February 21, 2017 should no longer be relied upon.
We have restated our financial statements for the quarterly period ended December 31, 2016 to reflect the aforementioned changes. The amendment and restatement is included in the Company’s Form 10-Q/A for the period ended December 31, 2016 as filed on June 5, 2017. The effect of the restatement on specific line items in the Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was to increase Impairment of goodwill, Operating loss, Loss before income tax and Net Loss by $500,000 and our Loss per share by $0.15 per share to $0.81. The effect of the restatement on the specific line items in the Consolidates Balance Sheet at December 31, 2016 was to reduce Goodwill, Current assets, Total assets, Retained earnings, Total stockholders’ equity and Total liabilities and stockholders’ equity by $500,000.
The Company’s management discussed the matters disclosed in Item 4.02 of this filing with SD Mayer & Associates, LLP , the Company’s independent registered certified public accounting firm.
