Omnitek Engineering to Restate Previous Periods to Account for Anti-Dilution Protection Provisions in Prior Financing

VISTA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Omnitek Engineering Corporation (OTCBB:OMTK) today announced its board of directors has concluded that the company's previously issued financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, including the periodic fiscal quarterly filings from June 30, 2012 through September 30, 2013, did not account for a derivative liability relating to certain anti-dilution protection provisions of warrants granted in connection with a 2012 PIPE financing transaction. The derivative liability affected the related non-cash gain or loss during each of the reporting periods. Accordingly, investors should refer to the company's amended financial statements.

The company intends to include in the 2013 Form 10-K restated quarterly financial data for the first three quarters of fiscal 2013 and the two affected quarters within fiscal 2012. Based on the information regarding prior years that the company intends to include in its 2013 Form 10-K, Omnitek Engineering does not intend to file amendments to its 2012 Form 10-K or to any of its previously filed Form 10-Qs.
