NEW YORK, June 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating claims on behalf of investors of SITO Mobile Ltd. (“SITO Mobile” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SITO).
On April 2, 2018, after the market closed, SITO Mobile filed its Form 10-K for fiscal 2017 and a Form 8-K disclosing multiple accounting errors in its previously issued second and third quarter 2017 financial results for the periods ending June 30, 2017 and September 30, 2017. Reportedly, on March 31, 2018, after consulting with its independent accounting firm BDO USA, LLP, the Audit Committee of the Board concluded that those quarterly reports should not be relied upon and would need to be corrected due to improper accounting. The errors relate to professional fees for a July 2017 offering of common stock, the classification of certain warrants, and revenue derived from a joint venture. The Company also disclosed that it had “material weaknesses in [its] internal controls over financial reporting caused by an insufficient complement of finance and accounting resources within the organization to ensure the proper application of U.S. GAAP relating to the Company’s complex non-routine transactions.”
On April 3, 2018, the Company issued a press release that summarized the “Net Impact of Accounting Adjustments.” Further, the Company stated that “[t]hese accounting adjustments . . . reflect management’s dedication to improving the accounting and disclosure regime of the Company and result in part from management’s engagement in February of this year of BDO USA, LLP, an internationally-recognized accounting firm, as the Company’s independent outside auditor.”
Following the April 2-3, 2018 disclosures, SITO Mobile’s shares fell $0.44 per share, or 11.6%, to close at $3.36 per share.
