A Form NT 10-K regarding KIT digital, Inc. - Notification of late filing for period ended 31.12.2012
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 21, 2012, on November 15, 2012, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of KIT digital, Inc. (the "Company") concluded that, because of errors and irregularities identified by the Company in its historical financial statements, the financial statements for (1) the years ended December 31, 2009, 2010 and 2011 and (2) each of the three quarters in 2009, 2010 and 2011 will be restated. As a result of the restatement of these prior periods, the Company will also restate the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012.
The accounting errors and irregularities identified during the Audit Committee investigation relate primarily to recognition of revenue related to certain perpetual software license agreements entered into by prior management in 2010 and 2011. These errors and irregularities were discovered in connection with the Audit Committee's previously disclosed investigation of certain transactions that resulted in impairment charges. Because of the timing of the Company's ongoing review and investigation of certain transactions, the Company requires additional time to complete an analysis of the accounting treatment for the
software licenses and to determine the extent of the corrections that may be required to its historical financial statements. Other effects on previous financial statements are also possible. Accordingly, the Company cannot currently quantify the potential impact of the restatement. Therefore, the Company is unable to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 (the "2012 10-K").
Additionally, as disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 18, 2012, on December 17, 2012, the Audit Committee dismissed Grant Thornton LLP ("Grant Thornton") as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm. As of the date of the filing of this Form 12b-25, the Company has not yet hired an independent registered public accounting firm to replace Grant Thornton. In order to complete the 2012 10-K, including the
audited financial statements required to be included therein, the Company must hire an independent registered public accounting firm. Therefore, the delay in replacing Grant Thornton will further delay the completion of the 2012 10-K.
As of March 1, 2013, the Company had approximately $10.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, of which approximately $2.1 million is restricted cash. The Company also had approximately $9.9 million outstanding under a secured loan facility and $2.6 million under an unsecured related party note. The Company is currently up to date with the principal and interest payments due under those loans, however, as a result of the restatement discussed above, there is an Event of Default under the secured loan facility and the Company is in discussions with the lenders. As previously disclosed, the Company has also experienced substantial losses in calendar year 2012, including costs related to litigations and restructuring expenses and will also incur additional costs related to the restatement discussed above. As a result of these circumstances, and based on the Company's forecast, the Company expects to continue to incur significant cash expenditures.
The Company is still considering a broad set of strategic alternatives including financing transactions as well as other strategic transactions including a sale of the Company or its assets. The Company continues to examine the reduction of working capital requirements to further conserve cash and may need to take additional actions in the near-term, which may include additional personnel reductions and suspension of certain development activities.
The above actions may or may not prove to be consistent with the Company's long-term strategic objectives, which shifted in calendar year 2012, as the Company discontinued certain non-core assets, among other things. No assurance can be given that the Company will be able to enter in to an agreement for a sale of the Company or its assets or obtain financing on favorable terms, if at all, or to successfully further reduce costs in such a way that would continue to allow the Company to operate its business.
