Ambient Corporation Announces Delay In Filing Form 10-Q For June 2012

Stocks in this article: AMBT

NEWTON, Mass., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Ambient Corporation (NASDAQ: AMBT), a leading provider of flexible and scalable smart grid communications platforms and technologies, announced today by its filing of Form 12b-25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission the delay of the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.  The delay in filing the 10-Q for the second quarter is due to the Company's determination that certain previously filed financial statements of the Company did not properly account for embedded derivative features of certain stock warrants previously issued by the Company. The Company had previously classified the value of these warrants to purchase common stock as equity. After further review, the Company determined that these instruments should have been classified as liabilities. To correct the accounting classification errors noted above, the Company will amend and restate its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.  As a result, the Company is unable to provide complete financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, until that restatement process is complete. The Company is working diligently to properly value the warrants and complete the restatements.  Amended filings are expected to be made within the next 15 days.

"Accounting for derivative instruments, such as the warrants we have issued, involves highly complex and intricate accounting rules.  While we will restate certain financial results and financial statements to properly account for the warrants, none of the changes have any impact on our historical cash flows or operating performance, nor do they impact our strategy and execution going forward," stated John J. Joyce, President and Chief Executive Officer.  

In accordance with the standard procedures related to the delayed filing of the Form 10-Q for June 2012 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company expects to receive a letter from The NASDAQ Stock Market indicating that the Company is not in compliance with the filing requirements for continued listing under NASDAQ Listing Rule 5250(c).  The Company does not expect the NASDAQ notice to have any effect on Ambient's listing or trading of the Company's common stock on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

Additional information is available in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed August 15, 2012.
