IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (OTC: GLPW) (“Global Power” or the “Company”) today announced that, due to the complexity of reconciling and conforming 2016 methodologies following the restatement of its 2015 and prior financial statements, the finalization of its December 31, 2016 financial statements and audit process is not expected to be completed in a timeframe that allows the Company to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2016 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission by the end of June 2017 as previously planned. As the Company stated in a Current Report on Form 8-K, the Company’s new lending agreement requires it to provide audited financial statements for 2016 to its lenders by August 31, 2017. It is expending its best efforts to file earlier than that date.
The Company plans to host a teleconference/webcast following the filing of its 2016 financial results. An announcement regarding the details of the conference call will be made prior to the filing of the Form 10-K and the publishing of the related news release.
