ActiveCare Reports Restated Financial Results

OREM, Utah, Nov. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ActiveCare Inc. (OTCBB:ACAR), a provider of diabetes management and wellness services for self-insured employers nationwide, today reported restated financial results for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 and the quarterly periods ended December 31, 2013, March 31, 2014 and 2013, and June 30, 2014 and 2013.

Michael Z. Jones, CEO of ActiveCare, stated, "Our revenues as restated for nine months ended June 30, 2014 indicate 25% growth when compared to the same period in the prior year. We continue to increase the number of members in our programs who have been diagnosed with diabetes."

Restated Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2013

  • The Company reported that total revenues decreased by $5,500,000 for fiscal year 2013 from $11,400,000 as previously reported to $5,900,000 as restated. The restatement of revenues was necessary to correct the accounting related to revenue recognition for the Chronic Illness Monitoring segment. The Company determined it was better practice to defer recognition of revenue until the products are shipped to the end users as opposed to the distributors, even though the distributors had taken title to the products and there were no significant rights of return. The recognition of revenue is deferred until later periods and cash flows related to these transactions are not impacted. See below for the changes to quarterly revenue.
     
  • The Company also reported the following changes for fiscal year 2013 in connection with the deferral of revenue recognition:
    • Gross profit decreased by $1,506,000 from $1,764,000 to $258,000.
    • Net loss attributable to common stockholders increased by $1,506,000 from $25,952,000 to $27,458,000. 

Restated Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended June 30, 2014

  • The Company reported that total revenues increased by $1,100,000 for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 from $4,300,000 as previously reported to $5,400,000 as restated. The adjustments to increase revenues were made to correct the accounting related to revenue recognition for the Chronic Illness Monitoring segment as described above. 
     
  • The Company also reported the following changes for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 in connection with the deferral of revenue recognition:
    • Gross deficit decreased by $159,000 from $672,000 to $513,000.
