SECURITY NATIONAL FINANCIAL CORPORATION (NASDAQ:SNFCA) Files An 8-K Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim ReviewItem 4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review
On August 1, 2017, the management of Security National Financial Corporation (the "Company") reached the conclusion that the Company's audited financial statements as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, and for the three years ended December 31, 2016, 2015, and 2014, and the Company's unaudited interim financial statements for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017 and the interim periods in 2016 and 2015 (the "Restated Periods") should not be relied upon due to errors identified in such financial statements. On August 3, 2017, the Company's Audit Committee met to discuss Management's recommendation that because of these prior period errors, the Company should provide a comprehensive restatement for all Restated Periods by means of filing an amended Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, and amended Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2017 and the interim periods in 2016 and 2015. The Audit Committee unanimously approved Management's recommendation for a comprehensive restatement of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the Restated Periods.
These prior period errors were discovered by the Company's management when it expanded the scope of its review process of the Company's accounting policies and procedures. As a result of this expanded review, management determined that the practice of treating its repurchase agreements with unaffiliated warehouse banks as off-balance sheet transactions and related sales accounting treatment were no longer in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The Company also discovered that the timing reversal of a tax valuation allowance should have occurred in a prior period. The Company discussed these matters with its current and former independent registered public accounting firm.
