3. Restatement of Cash Flow Activities
In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004, the Company implemented a new process to capture and analyze the various financial data used in the preparation of the consolidated statement of cash flows. During the testing of the new process, the Company discovered an error in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the year ended June 30, 2003. The Company’s old process was based on a Hyperion-based calculated cash flow model, which recorded the change in “other assets” as an investing activity. The old process required manual analysis and adjustment to identify and properly classify changes in other assets, such as deferred taxes and prepaid pensions, as operating activities. The Company made a clerical error in this process in its cash flow statement for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2003. The result of this error was an overstatement of cash provided from operating activities and an overstatement of cash used for investing activities.
In the Form 10-K for fiscal 2004, cash provided from operating activities and cash used for investing activities were restated in the consolidated statement of cash flows for the year ended June 30, 2003 as follows:
Similar errors relating to the classification of other assets occurred in the Company’s quarterly reports for fiscal 2004 quarters ended March 31, December 31 and September 30. The impact of such errors on reported cash provided from operating activities and cash used for investing activities was not material.
