·4 min read


TORONTO, Aug. 19, 2022 /CNW/ - Eddy Smart Home Solutions Ltd. (formerly Aumento Capital VIII Corp.) ("Eddy" or the "Company") (TSXV: EDY) today announced that after revisiting its interpretation and application of certain technical accounting standards related to non-cash consideration provided to a developer and customer (the "Developer") through an amended exclusive supplier agreement dated December 15, 2021 (the "Addendum"), it will restate and refile its consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021, which were originally filed on SEDAR on May 6, 2022, the condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022, which were originally filed on May 30, 2022, relevant comparative periods, and the related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for those periods (collectively, the "Affected Disclosures").

On December 15, 2021, the Eddy Smart Home Solutions Inc. entered the Addendum with the Developer to amend an exclusive supplier agreement originally entered into in January 2019. Pursuant to the Addendum, Eddy Smart Home Solutions Inc. was obligated to issued to the Developer 1,453,767 common shares and 1,900,000 common share purchase warrants of the Company (the "RTO Securities") contingent on the successful completion of the Company's reverse takeover transaction (the "RTO Transaction") which was achieved on January 12, 2022. In addition, the Company agreed to issue 750,000 common shares of the Company (together with the RTO Securities, the "Securities"), contingent on the Developer providing contracts to the Company for at least 12,500 units at the Developer's condominium projects.

The board of directors of Eddy has determined that the Affected Disclosures are required to be restated because of the magnitude of the expected impact. For the year ended December 31, 2021, the impact is expected to be isolated to the consolidated statement of financial position, increasing prepaid expenses and contributed surplus by approximately $1.6 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the impact to prepaid expenses is expected to slightly less than the December 31, 2021 impact, with a further impact of an expected reduction to general and administrative expenses and deficit of approximately $1.55 million, along with immaterial adjustments to contributed surplus and revenue.

With the exception of potential cash flows received through the exercise of the warrants, the restatement is not expected to have an impact on the past, current or future cash flows of the Company.

Management has determined that the application of the applicable IFRS standards was done incorrectly with respect to how the Securities were measured at the date of the amendment and recognized once issued upon completion of the RTO Transaction.

Travis Allan, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Eddy, said, "We take seriously our obligation to provide accurate financial statements and we have acted accordingly in providing this information".

The Company intends to file its restated financial statements and the corresponding management discussion and analysis on or about September 30, 2022.
