On March 11, 2010, GMX announced that its fiscal year 2008 and quarterly 2009 financial statements were inaccurate and “should no longer be relied upon.” GMX subsequently restated its financial statements to correct the method used to record full cost pool impairment charges, other impairment charges, and related deferred income taxes. As a result of the restatement, the Company’s net loss for fiscal year 2008 was $124.6 million as compared to the originally reported $81.7 million.
