HOLLYWOOD, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- COREwafer Industries, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: WAFR) (www.COREwaferindustries.com), a holding company whose wholly owned subsidiary, Core Wafer Systems, Inc. ("CWS") is the creator of proprietary software with installations worldwide, announced the successful completion of the audit of its financial statements for the two years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. The audit was performed by an independent CPA firm registered with the PCAOB (Public Company Accounting Oversight Board). The completed audit report can be viewed at www.pinksheets.com.
The audited financial statements include the operating results and financial position of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries Core Wafer Systems, Inc. and Northeast Expedite Logistics, LLC.
As of December 31, 2013, the Company's audited Consolidated Balance Sheet reported total stockholders' deficit of approximately $5,087,000, an increase of $3,400,000 as compared to the Company's previously announced unaudited statements. The increase resulted from an impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets.
For the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company's audited Statement of Operations reported a net loss of approximately $765,000, an increase of $3,400,000 when compared to the unaudited statements. This increase resulted principally from the recording of a non-cash charge for impairment of goodwill of approximately $3.4 (See below).
The Company recorded goodwill of approximately $2,962,000 during 2013 in connection with its acquisition of Core Wafer Systems, Inc. The Company determined that goodwill recorded in connection with the reverse acquisition between Core Wafer Systems, Inc. and COREwafer Industries, Inc., substantially exceeded its implied fair value; therefore, the Company recorded an impairment loss of approximately $2,962,000. In addition, as of December 31, 2013, the Company determined that the carrying amount of the asset acquired in the acquisition of Core Wafer Systems, Inc. exceeds the fair value and recorded an impairment of approximately $438,000. The total goodwill impairment recorded in 2013 was $3,400,000.
Ms. Teresa McWilliams, Chief Financial Officer of COREwafer, said, "We are pleased our audit has been successfully completed. In conjunction with the audit's completion, we are able to move forward in our plans toward up-listing from the Pink Sheets to the OTC Bulletin Board."
