(Due to improvements being deemed highly necessary in cases where TSE has recognized a violation of the matters to be observed when conducting disclosure)
Today, KAWADA TECHNOLOGIES,INC. (hereinafter “the Company”) disclosed revisions to past financial results, etc.
As a result, the Company was found to have made false disclosures from the fiscal year ended March 2009 to the first quarter of the fiscal year ending March 2014 due to failing to include an important subsidiary of a company when accounting for return on investment using the equity method and improper accounting for deferred tax liability in the fiscal year ended March 2008.
The Company was deemed to have continued to apply inappropriate accounting practices without confirmation or examination of their appropriateness due to a lack of understanding of practical guidelines, etc. related to the equity method and tax effect accounting, as well as the failure of checking within the accounting department to function sufficiently.
Based on the above, this case is deemed to (i) be in violation of the matters to be observed related to timely disclosure, (ii) have considerable impact on investment decisions and (iii) require public announcement. Thus, TSE shall implement public announcement measures.
Furthermore, this is a case of inappropriate disclosure arising from deficiencies in the Company’s organizational structure for conducting timely disclosure, and improvements to the organizational structure are deemed highly necessary. As such, TSE shall require the Company to submit a report containing the background of the issue and improvement measures.
