GINSMS Announces Audited Financial Results for the Nine-Month Period Ended December 31, 2015 and Provides Extended Net Earnings and Net Asset Position Forecasts

252 Days ago

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 2016) - GINSMS Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GOK) (the "Corporation" or "GINSMS") is pleased to announced that its audited financial statements for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2015 have been filed today on SEDAR and are available at www.sedar.com. The nine-month period ended December 31, 2015 constitutes a transitional financial year for GINSMS following the Corporation's earlier announcement that it would change its financial year end from March 31 to December 31.

On February 11, 2016, GINSMS had disclosed through the issuance of a press release unaudited financial results for the three- and the nine-month periods ended December 31, 2015. This financial disclosure was done in advance of the filing of the audited financial statements of the Corporation to allow GINSMS' ultimate holding company, Xinhua Holdings Limited ("Xinhua"), a public company in Japan, to use certain of GINSMS' financial information in the preparation of Xinhua's financial statements.

GINSMS' financial information for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2015 was prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB").

GINSMS is pleased to report that there is no significant change between the audited financial statements filed today and the unaudited financial information it disclosed earlier on February 11, 2016, except for the reclassification of a writeback of deferred tax liability on intangible assets for year ended March 31, 2015 and the presentation of segment information for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2015 and for year ended March 31, 2015.

The auditors of the Corporation are of the opinion that the writeback of deferred tax liability on intangible assets amounting to $126,259 taken in the year ended March 31, 2015 should have been included instead in the income tax credit as shown in the audited financial statements for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2015. Initially, this amount was shown in the loss from operation in the audited financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2015. Accordingly, the writeback of deferred tax liability on intangible assets has been reclassified to now be included as deferred tax credit under "Liquidity and Capital Resources" and as income tax credit under "Segment information -(d) Financial information by business segments". In the Corporation's February 11, 2016 press release, the amount had been disclosed separately under "Liquidity and Capital Resources" and not included in income tax credit under "Segment information -(d) Financial information by business segments".

The auditors of the Corporation have changed the presentation of the segment information in the audited financial statements compared to prior year. In order to be consistent with the presentation in the audited financial statements, the presentation of the segment information for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2015 and for year ended March 31, 2015 as disclosed in the unaudited financial information earlier on February 11, 2016 has been changed. Moreover, the total assets by geographical location not disclosed in the unaudited financial information earlier on February 11, 2016 is now disclosed.
