As previously disclosed in its Form 8-K filed on March 31, 2011 and in its 2010 Form 10-K, the Company concluded that it was appropriate to revise its accounting treatment of its purchase of assets from Evergreen Realty Group and to account for certain acquired interests as variable interest entities (VIE’s) and to consolidate those VIE’s in its financial statements from various dates in 2010.
The restated financial statements for the quarterly period ending March 31, 2010 account for the January 2010 Evergreen acquisition as a business combination rather than an asset acquisition and consolidate a VIE in which the Company is the primary beneficiary. The Company will also be amending its second and third quarter 2010 quarterly reports. It will not be necessary for the Company to amend its 2010 Form 10-K which was filed on March 31, 2011. The Company plans to file the amended second and third quarter 2010 quarterly reports within the next ten days.
