We are filing this amendment to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2009 to reflect changes made in response to comments received by us from the Staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Staff’s review of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008. Their comments on the 2008 Form 10-K are also applicable to our 2009 filings on Form 10-Q. This filing amends Item 4T (Controls and Procedures). In this Form 10-Q/A, we have expanded our disclosure with respect to Controls and Procedures. No other changes have been made to the report as originally filed on November 16, 2009. Additionally, we have included currently-dated management certifications from our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer required by Sections 302 and 909 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and they are attached to this Form 10-Q/A as Exhibits 31.1, 31.2, 32.1 and 32.2.
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified by the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. We recognize that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can only provide reasonable assurance of achieving desired control objectives. Judgment is required when designing and evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of potential controls and procedures.
As of the end of the period covered by this report, with the supervision and participation of management, including our CEO and CFO, we evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on this evaluation, our CEO and CFO have concluded that, as of the end of such period, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
Evaluation of Internal Control over Financial Reporting
We are responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company. During 2008 we reviewed procedures at all of our subsidiaries and evaluated the control structure of the Company as a whole. However, because of organization changes recently made in our company, including the acquisition of Bowman, we have not had a chance to fully document our procedures and assess risk, and we continue to enhance controls over inventory. Therefore, we believe it prudent to report that our Company did not have effective internal control over financial reporting at September 30, 2009. Management plans to complete its Sarbanes-Oxley requirements in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission regulations.
There were no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting to the knowledge of our management, or in other factors that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect these internal controls over financial reporting subsequent to the evaluation date.
Pursuant to the requirements of Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
THE STEPHAN CO.
