Columbia Laboratories, Inc. Announces Restatement of Previously- Issued Unaudited Interim Consolidated Financial Statements for the Three- and Nine-Month Periods Ended September 30, 2013

- Financial Statements Understated Net Income Due to Calculation Error -

BOSTON, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Columbia Laboratories, Inc. (Nasdaq: CBRX) today announced a restatement of its previously-issued unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013 due to a calculation error related to its common stock warrant expense, a non-cash item, for these periods. 

Following a review of the financial statements, the Company discovered this calculation error, which resulted in the overstatement of the Company's common stock warrant expense for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013, and affects, among other things, its reported net (loss) income and net (loss) income per common share (basic and diluted). Accordingly, investors are cautioned not to rely on the Company's historical financial statements, earnings press release dated November 7, 2013, and similar communications for the periods ended September 30, 2013.

Complex accounting rules address the measurement of the fair value of stock warrants.  Management estimates the fair value of the common stock warrant liability quarterly by using the Black-Scholes option pricing model which is based on the Company's stock price at the measurement date, exercise price of the warrants, risk-free rate and historical volatility.  The Company currently has 621,275 warrants outstanding with an exercise price of $12.16.  These warrants have an expiration date of April 30, 2015. 

Based on its review to date, management anticipates that the restatement will result in the following corrections to the Company's unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013:

  • A $4.9 million favorable adjustment to net (loss) income, a non-cash item, which does not affect the Company's reported cash balances or operating income;
  • A restatement of the Company's previously reported net loss for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, resulting in net income of approximately $1.7 million for such period;
  • A restatement of the Company's previously reported net income for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, resulting in net income of approximately $5.6 million for such period;
  • A restatement of the Company's previously reported basic and diluted net loss per common share for the three month period ended September 30, 2013, resulting in basic and diluted net income per common share of $0.15 and $0.11, respectively, for such period;
  • A restatement of the Company's previously reported basic and diluted net income per common share for the nine month period ended September 30, 2013, resulting in basic and diluted net income per common share of $0.51 and $0.46, respectively, for such period; and
  • A decrease to the Company's previously reported common stock warrant liability, resulting in common stock warrant liability of approximately $0.7 million on the consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2013.

The $4.9 million favorable adjustment to net (loss) income does not change the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income or non-GAAP adjusted diluted net income per share, as previously reported in the Company's earnings press release dated November 7, 2013.

The Company has determined that the calculation error described herein affects only the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and that the error has no impact on any prior period results.  The Company is not currently aware of any other accounting errors requiring adjustment to any prior period financial statements, however, there can be no assurances that the Company or its independent registered public accounting firm will not find additional accounting errors requiring further adjustments in those or earlier periods.

In reaching the conclusion to restate its financial results, the Company's management discussed the matters described in this press release with the Company's independent registered public accounting firm and the audit committee of the Company's Board of Directors.

The Company intends to file an amended Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, which will restate the previously issued financial statements included therein. The Company intends to file this amended quarterly report as soon as reasonably practicable, but in any event prior to the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

The Company's management is considering the effect of the restatement on the Company's prior conclusions regarding the adequacy of the Company's internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the applicable period.  The Company will amend, as necessary, any disclosures pertaining to its evaluation of such controls and procedures in connection with its amended Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
