IRVING, Texas, July 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (OTC:GLPW) (“Global Power”) today announced that, following discussions with its independent auditors, the Company anticipates that on or about September 30, 2016, it will file an Annual Report on Form 10-K for its 2015 fiscal year, which will include its annual and quarterly consolidated financial statements and related consolidated financial information for 2015. The 2015 Form 10-K will also include audited restated consolidated financial statements and related information for 2014 and 2013 and unaudited restated selected financial data for 2012 and 2011. The Company intends to file Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, which will include the quarterly financial statements for its first and second quarters of 2016 shortly thereafter.
The Company also announced that the Board of Directors has dissolved its independent special committee (the “Special Committee”), which was formed in May 2015 to review the facts and circumstances relating to the Company’s determination to restate certain of its historical financial results. The Committee found no evidence of intentional misconduct or fraud related to the Company’s preparation of the financial statements to be restated.
Terence J. Cryan, Global Power's President and CEO, commented, "We believe that the dissolution of the Special Committee and the announcement of a restatement completion timetable are testaments to the progress we are making. Throughout this comprehensive financial review, we have enhanced our internal controls and procedures and strengthened our financial reporting and accounting functions while continuing our remediation efforts throughout this year.”
The Company plans to provide further notice once definitive dates are established for the filings for the first and second quarters of 2016. Once current on its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company will host a teleconference to bring investors up to date with the status of its businesses and go forward strategy.
Mr. Cryan concluded, “We look forward to getting the comprehensive financial restatement behind us, so that our management team can devote its full attention to successfully executing our strategic plan for the benefit of Global Power’s shareholders."
Once current on its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company plans to reapply for a listing on the New York Stock Exchange.
