AUBURN HILLS, MI / ACCESSWIRE / April 1, 2021 / Unique Fabricating, Inc. (NYSE American:UFAB), a leader in engineering and manufacturing multi-material foam, rubber, and plastic components utilized in noise, vibration, and harshness management and air/water sealing applications for the transportation, appliance, medical, and consumer markets, announced today that it will restate its previously issued quarterly financial statements for the quarters ended March 31, 2020, June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2020 (collectively, the "Relevant Periods"). As a result of this decision, investors should no longer rely upon the Company's previously released financial statements for the Relevant Periods and any earnings releases or other communications relating to the Relevant Periods.
Errors were discovered during the course of management's preparation of the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020. Management believes the scope of the errors is limited to the Relevant Periods identified above. The errors, which were not detected as a result of the material weakness in certain controls that management identified in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2019 related to limited finance staffing levels that were not commensurate with the Company's complexity and its financial accounting and reporting requirements, combined with changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as accounting and finance personnel working remotely, which contributed to the errors and the failure to identify and correct the errors in a timely manner.
The Company will file a Form 12b-25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission providing the Company a 15-day extension to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020 (the "Form 10-K"). The Company expects to file its Form 10-K within the extension period and to schedule a conference call to discuss 2020 results in conjunction with the filing.
"Unique Fabricating is committed to the integrity of our financial reporting, and we are working to resolve this matter quickly," commented Doug Cain, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to make progress, improving our systems, controls and culture to position Unique Fabricating for sustainably profitable growth, and that initiative remains intact. Accordingly, our long-term outlook is unchanged. Our current expectation is that we will file the restated quarterly financials for the Relevant Periods by April 15, 2021, subject to completing the necessary work."
It is important to note that the changes being recorded did not result from any override of controls or intentional misconduct.
