Review of Taiwan Sales Transactions
The Company today provided an update regarding the review commenced on June 23, 2006, at the direction of the audit committee through independent counsel, of transactions entered into by its Taiwan sales office. Agile management initiated this review proactively after routine process checks indicated irregularities in a Taiwan-based distributor relationship. Independent counsel has concluded its review and the Company has substantially completed its review of the accounting for the transactions and is working through its assessment of its internal control over financial reporting. As a result of the conclusions reached in this review, the Company expects to make an adjustment to revenue in the amount of approximately $632,000, to delay recognition of this revenue from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 to the first quarter of fiscal 2007. This delay in the recognition of revenue will also result in a decrease of the Company's earnings per share by $.01 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 and a decrease in the Company's net loss per share by $.01 for the first quarter of fiscal 2007. The Company also expects to report material weaknesses in the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of April 30, 2006 and July 31, 2006.
