On July 15, 2015, Advanced Drainage Systems Inc announced the delay in filing of its 2015 annual report due to an ongoing review of the “methodologies utilized in its year-end inventory costing analysis and the related impact on the Company’s fiscal year 2015 financial statements.” Advanced Drainage Systems Inc further stated, that “the Company anticipates that the effect of this review will be a reduction of year-end inventory values for fiscal year 2015 as compared to previously reported amounts, and a related increase in cost of sales.”
