Matica Files Amended Statements for Periods Ended June 30 2015
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 16, 2015) - Matica Enterprises Inc. (CSE: MMJ) (FSE: 39N) (OTC Pink: MQPXF) ("Matica" or the "Company") Boris Ziger, CEO of Matica announces that as a result of review by staff of the Ontario Securities Commission, we are issuing the following news release to clarify our disclosure. Matica has SEDAR filed amended unaudited financial statements for the three month and six month periods ended June 30, 2015 with a corresponding amended Management Discussion and Analysis. The original SEDAR filings were made on August 31, 2015.
The following table and notes are a summary of the changes made in the amended unaudited financial statements and also reflected in the amended Management Discussion and Analysis:
|GST/HST recoverable |
|Due from related parties||25,100||27,100||2,000||(d)|
|Investment in Associate||377,597||0||(377,597)||(c),(e),(g)|
|Accounts payable and accrued liabilities||287,805||2699,313||(18,492)||(e)|
|Management and directors fees||89,326||78,000||(11,326)||(h)|
|Marketing and promotion||650,418||781,418||131,000||(f)|
|Meals and entertainment||0||3,728||3,728||(i))|
|Office and Misc.||18,384||14,656||(3,728)||(i))|
|Share based compensation||101,389||1122,715||11,326||(h)|
Increase Cash and reduce Other receivables for a wire transfer in transit at June 30 which offset within Current Assets
Show GST/HST recoverable as separate line item from Other receivables to enable more detailed MDA analysis
Reclassify the advances to THCD in 2015 from Other receivables to Investment in associate consistent with the treatment in 2014 as audited and to conform to the accounting guidelines for the treatment of investment in associates
Reclassify an advance to a director from Prepaids to Due from related parties which offset within Current Assets
Reduce the accruals for finders’ fee agreements due to there being no further payments expected to THCD
Reclassify expenses from Consulting to Marketing and promotion to allow proper comparative MDA analysis
Reclassify expenses from Consulting to Investment in associate to conform to the accounting guidelines for the treatment of investment in associates
Reclassify the value of an option grant from Directors fees to Stock based compensation to provide the correct related party stock based compensation in Note 7
Reclassify expenses from Office and misc. to Meals and Entertainment to enable correct MDA analysis
Record an impairment for Investment in associate due to an October 31, 2015 surrender or cancellation clause
Sum of the adjustment to expenses and to loss
Many of the changes involve the reclassification of items from one asset account to another or one expense account to another with little or no significant net effect. The re-filing review included identifying items that may have been expensed as Consulting that more appropriately belonged either as Marketing and Promotion expenses or as an allocation to Investment in affiliate. The most significant change is the addition of an impairment of $687,677 against the investment in affiliate to reflect that Matica is subject to a surrender or cancellation clause should THC Dispensaries Canada Inc. fail to become a licensed producer under the Medical Marijuana Production Regulations by October 31, 2015.
Boris Ziger, Matica CEO states: "These amended filings more clearly identify the financial risks that Matica are exposed to if THC Dispensaries Canada Inc. fails to receive a license by October 31, however, in no way do they change the intention of the Company to pursue any available legal recourse against THC Dispensaries Canada Inc., its principals, its directors, its legal representatives, and any other parties deemed associated in the failure of THCD to complete their obligations to Matica."
It became apparent in this review that the CFO and accounting functions located in Vancouver are not able to adequately report and reflect the activities of the CEO and operating decision functions located in Toronto. Mr. Richard Tong has agreed to tender his resignation effective immediately so that the Company may search for a Toronto based CFO. We thank Mr. Tong for his service to the Company.
Mr. Brown, the Audit Chairman of Matica, has agreed to assume the duties of the CFO on an interim basis until a Toronto based replacement has been added.
