MiMedx to restate certain historical financial statements
As previously announced, the Audit Committee has been conducting an independent investigation into current and prior-period matters relating to certain sales and distribution practices and other matters. The determination of the need to restate was based on investigation results to date, which have primarily been focused on the accounting treatment afforded to such sales and distribution practices for two distributors for which certain implicit arrangements modified the explicit terms of the contracts, impacting revenue recognition during specified periods.
The Audit Committee investigation is ongoing, continues to evaluate sales and distribution practices at other distributors and customers, and may ultimately result in the identification of additional issues, broaden the scope of financial items or periods required to be restated, may result in additional actions taken by the Company, and may affect the preliminary conclusions expressed above. The Company does not intend to provide additional updates on the results of the investigation until it is concluded or the Company determines that further disclosure is appropriate or necessary.
