The Company has concluded that it has mistakenly capitalized certain general and administrative costs associated with software development and manufacturing and installations of fixed assets, which costs should have been expensed as incurred. The Company is revising its capitalization policies related to software development and manufacturing and installations of fixed assets. The Company estimates that the accounting errors described in this report will have the following impact on the Company's financial statements:
As of October 31, 2015, the Company is reducing the net book value of capitalized software by approximately $787,000, reducing the net book value of the PASSUR Network by approximately $554,000 and increasing the accumulated deficit by approximately $1,341,000.
The Company does not believe that the impact of the accounting errors discussed in this report on the Company's statement of operations and statement of cash flows for all the periods presented in fiscal year 2017, the year ended October 31, 2016, and as of and for the year ended October 31, 2015 and prior years would be material because the net amounts of costs capitalized and depreciation and amortization expenses recognized in each such year are not materially different.
The Company intends to correct the accounting errors described in this report in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended October 31, 2017, which will present the Company's restated audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended October 31, 2016, together with appropriate footnote disclosure of the errors and the corrected amounts for such year. The Company does not intend to amend any Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed during the 2017 fiscal year, as the impact of the accounting errors described in this report on the quarters ended January 31, April 30 and July 31, 2017 will be corrected in the Company's Annual Report on Form10-K for the year ended October 31, 2017, which will include appropriate footnote disclosure of the errors and the corrected amounts for each such quarter.The Companyexpects to file with the SEC its Annual Report on Form10-K for the year ended October 31, 2017 on February 12, 2018.
The Audit Committee and the Company's management have discussed the matters described in this Current Report on Form 8-K with the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, BDO USA, LLP.
