Arrhythmia Research Technology, Inc. Announces Delay in Finalizing First Quarter of 2013 Results

Marketwired

FITCHBURG, MA--(Marketwired - May 17, 2013) -  Arrhythmia Research Technology, Inc. (NYSE MKT: HRT) (the "Company") reported today that it will not be able to file its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the interim period ended March 31, 2013 within the automatic extension of its due date to May 20, 2013 afforded by its filing of a Form 12b-25 Notification of Late Filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The delay in filing is due to an ongoing internal review by the Audit Committee and the Company's independent auditor relating to the recognition of revenue with multiple element arrangements associated with respect to our tooling revenue. As of today's date, the 10-K has not been filed and as a result the interim period report on Form 10-Q is not complete. However, for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, the Company preliminarily expects to report the following:

    Preliminary March 31, 2013
Consolidated Revenues   $ 5,640,000
Net Income     4,000
Total Assets     17,040,000
Total Liabilities     7,380,000
Total Stockholder Equity     9,660,000

Management is working diligently with its Audit Committee and the Company's independent auditor to finalize the review of the 10-Q by June 13, 2013. However, the ongoing finalizing of the 10-K has delayed the completion of the review of the 10-Q. Until the review of the Form 10-Q has been finalized, the Company cannot provide further assurance regarding the results of operations for the affected period.

Salvatore Emma, Jr., the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated "Our stockholders expect timeliness, confidence and transparency in the filing and accuracy of our financial statements. Our Board of Directors, management and staff share this expectation and hold this responsibility to our stockholders as a priority. Accordingly, we are working diligently toward resolving the issues which caused a delay in the filing of our 10-K and the subsequent delay in the filing of our 10-Q."
