As a result of these improper practices the Company would have to restate its reported financial statements. Additionally, the Company was experiencing increased operating losses, due to a reduction of revenues and margins for is Emission Control segment with a corresponding increase in backlog. As a result of the above, the Company’s financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
