G. Willi-Food Announces Intention To Restate Consolidated Statements Of Cash Flows For The Full Year Ended December 31, 2011 And For The First Quarter Of 2012

Stocks in this article: WILC

YAVNE, Israel, August 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

G. Willi-Food International Ltd. (NASDAQ: WILC) (the " Company" or " Willi-Food"), a global company specializing in the development, marketing and international distribution of kosher foods, today announced that the Company intends to restate its consolidated statements of cash flows in its financial statements for the full year ended December 31, 2011 and for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 to reflect the correct classification of the change in the receivable balance related to the sale by the Company of its holdings in Shamir Salads (2006) Ltd. (" Shamir Salads") as a reconciling item to adjust net cash from operating activities.

On December 16, 2011, the Company signed an agreement to sell its entire 51% ownership interest in Shamir Salads for NIS 12 million to other shareholders of Shamir Salads as a result of settlement of a dispute with those shareholders.  In addition, the Company received NIS 1.5 million in past due management fees as part of the settlement. All conditions precedent for the sale were satisfied by December 26, 2011, and the sale closed on January 1, 2012, at which time the Company received the proceeds of the sale.

In the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company inadvertently classified the increase in the receivable balance related to this transaction as a reconciling item to reduce net cash from operating activities. Consequently, net cash from investing activities in the consolidated statements of cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2011 inadvertently increased by approximately NIS 13.5 million (US $ 3.5 million) and net cash flow from operating activities was inadvertently decreased by the same amount.  As a result, the Company's consolidated statements of cash flow for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 did not include the proceeds generated from the sale.

As a result of the restatement:

  • net cash from operating activities in the Company's restated consolidated statements of cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2011 will be increased by approximately NIS 13.5 million (US $ 3.5 million) and net cash from investing activities will be reduced by the same amount.
  • net cash flow from investing activities in the Company's restated consolidated statements of cash flows for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 will be increased by approximately NIS 13.5 million (US $ 3.6 million) and net cash from operating activities will be reduced by the same amount.

The abovementioned adjustments will have no impact on the Company's consolidated statements of financial position or its consolidated statements of income or its consolidated statements of changes in equity for the year ended December 31, 2011 or the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

The Company intends to restate the Company's consolidated financial statements for the full year ended December 31, 2011 and for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012 by August 31, 2012.

The impact of the adjustments on the financial statements of the Company is set forth below:
