On January


 




 


i.


The
audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, and EisnerAmper LLP’s
report thereon;



 


ii.


The
unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements as of and for each of the interim periods ended September 30, 2020 and
2019, June 30, 2020 and 2019 and December 31, 2019 and 2018 (the “Affected Reports”)



 


The
management of the Company has determined that in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 606 section 10-32-26, the Company incorrectly
accounted for the cost of cooperative advertising as selling expenses instead of a reduction of the transaction prices recorded
in net sales for each of the Affected Reports.


 


Pursuant
to FASB ASC Topic 606 section 10-32-26, if cooperative allowances payable to a customer is a payment for a distinct good or service
from the customer, then an entity shall account for the purchase of the good or service in the same way that it accounts for other
purchases from suppliers. If the amount of consideration payable to the customer exceeds the fair value of the distinct good or
service that the entity receives from the customer, then the entity shall account for such an excess as a reduction of the transaction
price. If the entity cannot reasonably estimate the fair value of the good or service received from the customer, it shall account
for all of the consideration payable to the customer as a reduction of the transaction price.


 


The
effects of this accounting error do not impact the consolidated balance sheets, statements of cash flows and statements of shareholders’
equity for any current or past reporting period. The effects are confined to the consolidated statements of income, MD&A discussions,
notes to consolidated financial statements, and management’s assessment of internal control of the Affected Reports. The
net income or loss reported in the aforementioned reporting periods is not expected to change. The impact of this error is as
follows:

The
Company is working to complete the restatement of its financial statements for the periods covered in the Affected Reports (the
“Non-Reliance Periods”). The Company is still in the process of determining if it will file the restated consolidated
financial statements for the Non-Reliance Periods by filing a comprehensive Form 10-K that includes the restated consolidated
financial statements and related financial information for the Non-Reliance Periods or filing amendments to each of the Affected
Reports. The Company intends to restate the consolidated financial statements for the Non-Reliance Periods as soon as practicable.
Accordingly, investors and others should rely only on the financial information and other disclosures regarding the Non-Reliance
Periods once the Company restates its consolidated financial statements and not rely on any previously issued or filed registration
statements or reports, earning press releases, investor presentations or other communications related thereto covering the Non-Reliance
Periods.


 


Determination of the impact of the errors
described above are subject to continued analysis by management and our auditors and could change based on further review and
analysis of the Affected Periods. The Company, when restating the previously filed financial statements, may also correct other
previously identified errors determined to be immaterial.


 


The
Audit Committee of the Board of Directors and management have begun implementing measures to enhance processes and controls and
continue to evaluate appropriate remediation actions. Management continues to assess the effect of the restatements on the Company’s
internal control over financial reporting and its disclosure controls and procedures. The Company expects to report a material
weaknesses following completion of this assessment


 


The
Audit Committee has discussed the foregoing with EisnerAmper LLP.
