FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFII) announced today that the Company filed a Form 12b-25 regarding its Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2017.
In the filing, the Company stated that the preliminary earnings announcement for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 included an expense related to a write-off during the quarter of certain inventory, a majority of which the Company acquired as part of its July 2015 acquisition of Reggiani Macchine S.P.A. EFI has just concluded negotiations with the prior owners to recover part of this expense, and, as a result, the expense has been reduced.
The Company is evaluating the accounting impacts of the write-off and reduction of the inventory expense and related settlement, and whether this affects management’s assessment of the effectiveness of its current and historical disclosure controls and internal control over financial reporting. The Company does not expect any negative impact to any previously reported financial results.
Accordingly, EFI was not able to complete the preparation, review and filing of its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense, and expects to file its Form 10-Q as soon as practicable.
Management will host a conference call to discuss the filing on November 14, 2017 at 8:30 am ET/5:30 am PT. Instructions for listening to the conference call over the Web are available on the investor relations portion of EFI’s website at www.efi.com.
