As described in the Forms 8-K dated October 29, 2012 and November 13, 2012, the Company intends to correct the effect of the accounting errors including the potential inventory theft in Brazil on previously issued interim financial statements by restating the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 that will be presented comparatively in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 28, 2012 and amending previously filed Forms 10-Q for the periods ended June 29, 2012 and March 30, 2012. Contemporaneous with the filing of the above referenced Quarterly Reports, the Company also intends to file an Annual Report on Form 10-K/A to restate previously issued annual financial statements and related financial information contained therein as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the three year period then ended. The Company’s restated financial statements will be filed as soon as practicable following the conclusion of its ongoing internal review being conducted with the assistance of outside counsel and a forensic accounting firm and assessment of the findings, which is expected to be completed by mid-February. Based on the preliminary findings in the internal review to date, the Company does not believe that its previously disclosed estimates of the amounts of understated costs of sale and overstated inventory will change materially.
