DEERFIELD, Ill., June 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: RTIX), a global surgical implant company, today announced that it has completed the filing of its 2019 Form 10-K and has completed its previously announced financial statement restatement.
The Company has also completed its previously announced internal investigation of certain accounting matters, including the Company’s revenue recognition practices for certain contractual arrangements, primarily with OEM customers involving the accounting treatment, financial reporting and internal controls related to such arrangements. The Company revised its financial statements to correct for errors, and has filed restated audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016, 2017 and 2018, selected financial data for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2015, and related disclosures for the quarterly periods for such years, each on Form 10-K/A, and restated condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements for the quarters ended March 31, 2019, June 30, 2019, and September 30, 2019, reflected in its 2019 Form 10-K. The previously announced investigation by the SEC remains ongoing, and the Company is cooperating with the SEC in its investigation.
“RTI is a company guided by strong values and business standards,” stated RTI’s President and Chief Executive Officer Camille Farhat. “These values are reflected in our ongoing efforts to remediate the various accounting issues that have delayed our financial filings and led to the extensive investigation and subsequent corrections in our historical financial information. We are now focused on working toward filing our first quarter 2020 financial statements, completing our pending sale of the OEM business, and preparing our spine business to be a stand-alone entity.”
