VANCOUVER, BC, June 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – PlantX Life Inc. (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) (“PlantX” or the “Company“) today announced that, upon review of the revenue recognition policy adhered to in fiscal 2021, the Company will restate its previously issued audited consolidated comparative financial statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021. This decision was approved by the Company's board of directors upon the recommendation of the Company's audit committee, and after consultation with management and the Company's former and current auditors.
The decision to restate these financial statements was based on the Company's conclusion that certain revenues and cost of sales recognized during fiscal 2021 that were related to the Company's wholesale operations should not have been recorded on a gross basis during that period. The Company has subsequently ceased transactions relating to its wholesale division as of Q1 2022. These restatements should not impact historical cash or cash equivalents that were generated during the period mentioned above based upon the current review. At the present time, the restatements are expected to impact revenue and cost of sales line items. While the Company's analysis is still underway, the Company currently estimates the revenue impact for the full year 2021 to be a reduction of approximately US$2.76 million (C$3.45 million) and cost of sales to decrease by approximately US$2.48 million (C$3.10 million).
At this time, the Company has not fully completed its review and the expected financial impact of the restatement is preliminary and subject to change. There can be no assurance that the final reported adjustments will not differ materially from the estimated amounts discussed in this press release, or that additional adjustments will not be identified. This press release qualifies the Company's previously released financial statements, press releases, earnings releases and investor communications for the fiscal period cited above.
PlantX cannot at this time estimate when the restatement will be completed. The Company will continue to diligently pursue completion of the restatement and intends to make its upcoming 2022 annual filings as soon as reasonably practical.
