  • New accounting firm announced today. Switching from PWC to Deloitte. Not a big surprise considering all the refilling they had to do. They didn't really blame PWC, but I expect they were hoping for better advice on accounting issues and were disappointed that they had to refile all those reports.

  • Blackrock adds another 350,000 or so shares to their RAVN holdings. Now at 11.3%. They own everything, so it may not mean much.



  • Up 7% today. Kind of strange. No news that I noticed. Pretty much doubled off the March low in the $13 range.
  • NT-10Q filed today.

    We currently anticipate that the results of operations for the quarter ended October 31, 2016 will be significantly different from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year on a reported basis based on improved operating results driven by sales growth and margin improvement in both the Company’s Applied Technology and Engineered Films Divisions, offset by weakness in the Aerostar Division’s performance. These trends in the Company’s operations are consistent with performance trends experienced for the period ended July 31, 2016. However, until the Company has completed its review of the matters impacting restatement of prior periods, and completes procedures with respect to current period matters, the Company is unable to estimate the results of operations for the third quarter. Until the Company has completed its review and files its amended reports, the Company will not be reporting financial results for the period ended October 31, 2016.

  • And finally, a NT 10-Q filing. Doesn't sound that significant.

    Raven Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) has identified two deficiencies in the design and one deficiency in the operating effectiveness of its internal controls over financial reporting each of which existed as of October 31, 2015, January 31, 2016 and April 30, 2016. The design deficiencies relate to i) verification and monitoring of the Company’s inventory cycle counting process and ii) management’s testing over the reliability of system-generated information used in its financial reporting process. The deficiency in operating effectiveness relates to the development and review of estimates used in the cash flow forecasts related to the fiscal 2016 goodwill impairment assessment for Vista Research, Inc. (“Vista”). The Company has determined that the two design deficiencies are material weaknesses and is continuing to evaluate the severity of the operating effectiveness deficiency which could also result in a material weakness.

    Management is diligently assessing any potential effect on the Company’s previously issued financial statements with respect to the goodwill impairment. It is possible that through this process the Company will determine that the amount of the goodwill impairment recorded in fiscal 2016 could be adjusted, and such adjustment could be material. The Company previously determined that the goodwill of the Vista reporting unit was impaired by $7.4 million. At the end of fiscal year 2016, the remaining goodwill amount related to Vista was $4.1 million.

    On September 12, 2016, the Company determined that it will file an amendment to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2016 as well as to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended April 30, 2016 and October 31, 2015 to reflect the conclusions by the Company’s management that internal control over financial reporting and disclosure control and procedures were not effective as of those dates.

    As a result of the continuing analysis of these matters, the Company has not been able to finalize its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended July 31, 2016. The Company will file such Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q after the Company completes its analysis.
