The Company also stated that it "has determined material weakness existed in its internal control structure at year-end 2016 and continued through the end of the 2017 second quarter. The company intends to institute remediation plans as a result of these errors. The cumulative effect of the changes to retained earnings as of March 31, 2017 was a reduction of approximately $30 million."
