Regulation FD Disclosure.
As previously disclosed, Power Solutions International, Inc. (the “Company”) has determined to restate its consolidated financial statements for certain historical periods in light of the identification of errors in revenue recognition and certain other areas. The Company has been working diligently to quantify the expected adjustments necessary to complete the restatements and file its delinquent reports for the 2016 and 2017 periods with the goal of completing this process prior to the end of 2018. While the Company has made substantial progress, it has revised its plan such that it now anticipates to file the restatements and the delinquent reports for the 2016 and 2017 periods as soon as practicable in the early part of 2019. While this timeline reflects management’s best estimate at this time, there can be no assurance that it will be met or that there will be no further changes to the restatement plan.
Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements regarding the current expectations of the Company about its prospects and opportunities. These forward-looking statements are covered by the “Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Statements” provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The Company has tried to identify these forward-looking statements by using words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “budgeted,” “contemplate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “guidance,” “may,” “outlook,” “plan,” “projection,” “should,” “target,” “will,” “would,” or similar expressions, but these words are not the exclusive means for identifying such statements. The Company cautions that a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors could cause its actual results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: the final results of the Audit Committee’s independent review as it impacts the Company's accounting, accounting policies and internal control over financial reporting; management’s ability to successfully implement the Audit Committee’s remedial recommendations; the reasons giving rise to the prior resignation of RSM US LLP as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm and the impact of the resignation on the Company's relationship with its lender and trade creditors and potential for defaults and exercise of creditor remedies; the time and effort required to complete the restatement of the affected financial statements, complete its delinquent financial statements and prepare the related Form 10-K and Form 10-Q filings, particularly within the current anticipated timeline; the timing of completion of necessary interim reviews and audits by the new independent registered public accounting firm; the timing of completion of steps to address, and the inability to address and remedy, material weaknesses; the identification of additional material weaknesses or significant deficiencies; variances in non-recurring expenses; risks relating to the substantial costs and diversion of personnel’s attention and resources deployed to address the financial reporting and internal control matters and related class action litigation; the ability of the Company to accurately budget for and forecast product shipments, and the extent to which product shipments result in recorded revenues; the impact of the previously disclosed investigation initiated by the SEC and any related or additional governmental investigative or enforcement proceedings; the impact of resignations of the directors from the board of directors and certain executive officers and any delays and challenges encountered in recruiting replacements for open positions and the replacements’ transitions into their positions; and any negative impacts from delisting of the Company's Common Stock from the NASDAQ Stock Market and any delays and challenges in obtaining a re-listing on a stock exchange. Actual events or results may differ materially from its expectations. The Company's forward-looking statements are presented as of the date hereof. Except as required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
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.
