The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. Announces Delay in the Release of its Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Results
Previously, the Company has recognized revenue pertaining to the sale of its products to certain distributors at the time the products are shipped to such distributors. The Company is evaluating whether the revenue associated with the concessions granted to certain distributors should instead have been recognized at the time the products sell through its distributors to the end customers. The Company expects that any potential changes in the timing of the recognition of revenue with respect to these transactions should not impact the total amount of revenue ultimately recognized by the Company with respect to such distributors and does not reflect on the validity of the underlying transactions with respect to such distributors.
The Company will experience a delay in the timely filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended
The Company will not be in a position to release financial results until the completion of the independent review of the Audit Committee and of the audit process relating to the 2016 fiscal year. The Company is working diligently on this matter and will, as soon as practicable, make a further announcement regarding the updated timing of the release of financial results and a conference call on its financial results. Separately, the Company does not expect to achieve its previously announced guidance for fiscal year 2016.
