122 Days ago

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Mar 28, 2016) - Starrex International Ltd. ("Starrex" or the "Company") (CSE:STX) filed on Thursday, March 24, 2016 amended and restated interim financial statements and a revised management discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the first-quarter ended March 31, 2015 (collectively, the "First Interim Restatements") which can be found on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) under the Company's profile. This followed the filing on Friday, March 18, 2016 of restated audited financial statements and a revised management discussion and analysis for the Company for the year ended December 31, 2014 (see press release dated March 18, 2016).

On December 9 and 16, 2015, after discussions with the staff of the Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC") Starrex announced that it would restate and re-file (1) its first, second and third quarter unaudited interim financial statements for the periods ended March 31, June 30 and September 30, 2015; and (ii) the corresponding interim MD&A's. Following additional discussions with the OSC respecting the treatment of the subsidiaries, Property Interlink, LLC, One Force Staffing, Inc. and Olympia Capital Management, Inc., acquired by Starrex on July 9, 2014 (the "Acquisitions"), Starrex announced on February 8, 2016 that it would restate and refile its 2014 audited annual financial statements. The restatement and refiling of the 2015 interim financial statements were delayed pending completion of the restatement of the 2014 audited annual financial statements.

Subsequent to the original issuance of the Company's unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements as at March 31, 2014, the Company determined that the share consideration issued in exchange for the acquisitions completed July 9, 2014 (Note 4) was incorrectly measured using the concurrent financing price of CAD$0.50. These restated unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements reflect an increased value allocated to the share consideration issued in exchange for the acquisition based on the trading price of the Company's stock on the close date of the acquisitions, being CAD$0.95 per share. Furthermore, the original issuance of the December 31, 2014 consolidated financial statements included an unallocated purchase price as management had not yet completed the measurement and recognition of identifiable assets and liabilities included in the purchase price allocation. These restated consolidated financial statements include the finalized purchase price allocation which resulted in the recognition of additional intangible assets (Note 6) and amortization related thereto as well as goodwill (Note 7). The restatement of the Company's unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements reflects corrections in intangible assets, goodwill, deferred tax liability, share capital, and deficit as well as amortization of intangible assets.

For presentation purposes, deferred revenue in the original Statement of Financial Position was included in the balances for accrued liabilities. For further clarification, deferred revenue has been presented separately for comparative purposes, which flow through the consolidated Statement of cash flows as appropriate.

The following tables reflect the corrections to the Company's unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

As previously announced, the OSC issued a management cease trade order ("MCTO") prohibiting the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer from trading, directly or indirectly, in the securities of Starrex until two full business days following the receipt by the OSC and filing of the restated 2014 audited annual financial statements, along with restatements of the first three quarterly financial statements of 2015, and all related revised MD&A's. Starrex expects to file restated interim financial statements for the periods ended June 30, 2015 and September 30, 2015, and the related revised interim MD&A's, by the end of this week and the next week, respectively, which would complete all its refiling obligations.

Starrex intends to satisfy the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines as set out in National Policy 12-203 for as long as Starrex remains in default, including the issuance of further bi-weekly (or sooner) default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form of a press release. A general cease trade order may be issued if Starrex fails to file such default status reports on a timely basis. The MCTO does not affect the ability of persons who are not insiders of Starrex to trade its securities.
