Gerber Scientific, Inc. (NYSE: GRB) said that the release of its fiscal fourth-quarter and fiscal full-year results will be delayed to allow its auditors, KPMG, additional time to complete the audit of Gerber's financial statements included in the Form 10-K filing for the period ended April 30, 2002. The filing was previously expected to be made by August 13, 2002. The company expects to file its Form 10-K within two weeks.
"While we are eager to release the company's latest results, our auditors, KPMG, have informed us that they will require a short period of time to finalize their review of our Form 10-K filing, which includes restatements of certain prior periods," said Marc T. Giles, president and chief executive officer of Gerber Scientific.
As a result of the delay, Gerber also noted that it has contacted its bank syndicate in order to receive an extension of the time allowed to furnish certified financial statements.
