Several line items in the first three quarterly financial statements for the year were restated based on the closing of the accounts during the year end. This will require the three previous quarters to be restated for comparison purposes going forward. The previously reported quarterly results will be restated in the comparative results when the Company reports its quarterly financial results for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2013.
These restatements include an assessment of the Purchase Price Equation with respect to the reverse takeover of Serebra Learning Corporation in the second quarter, application of certain IFRS standards with respect to the value of various low cost loans received during the period, application of certain IFRS standards with respect to contingent liabilities associated with conditionally repayable government assistance, and the capitalization of certain development costs and the associated impact on current and deferred taxes. A more detailed explanation and reconciliation (both statement of comprehensive income (loss) and statement of financial position impact) is included in Management's Discussion and Analysis.
The following table summarizes the impact of the above transactions on the interim statements of comprehensive income (loss) and basic and fully diluted earnings per share for the periods ended December 31, 2011, March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012 for the Company as filed on SEDAR.
