TCC Completes Restatement of Prior Financial Statements; Files Form 10-K for the year ended September 29, 2018 and Forms 10-Q/A for Fiscal 2018; and Files Forms 10-Q for the quarters ended December 29, 2018 and March 30, 2019
CONCORD, Mass. – June 21, 2019 – Technical Communications Corporation (NasdaqCM: TCCO) today announced the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 29, 2018 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Form 10-K contains financial statements for fiscal year 2018 and restated information for fiscal year 2017. The Company also filed its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended December 29, 2018 and March 30, 2019.
TCC had announced financial information and results of operations for the fiscal year and quarter ended September 29, 2018 in a Current Report on Form 8-K filed on December 10, 2018. Subsequent to such filing, management conducted a review of TCC's revenue recognition policies, including its interpretations of ASC 605, Revenue Recognition, among other matters. Based upon this review, the Audit Committee of TCC's Board of Directors, on the recommendation of management after consultation with the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, concluded that the Company should modify the application of its revenue recognition policies, specifically in connection with a services contract. This modification resulted in the restatement of the previously announced financial information for the fiscal year and quarter ended September 29, 2018 as set forth in the Form 8-K filed on December 10, 2018, as well as a restatement of the financial information included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017 and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended December 30, 2017, March 31, 2018 and June 30, 2018. The Company filed Quarterly Reports on Forms 10-Q/A for such periods today to reflect the restatements.
The Company believes that the restatement will have no impact on total revenue recognized over the life of the service contract that is currently in effect. Furthermore, TCC believes, based on information available to date, that the restatement will have no impact on the timing or magnitude of cash flows from operations. The impact of the modification of revenue recognition was to recognize $484,000 of revenue originally recorded in TCC's fiscal year ended September 30, 2017 in the fiscal year ended September 29, 2018, and to recognize $1,623,000 of revenue originally recorded in the Company's fiscal year ended September 29, 2018 in the fiscal year ending September 28, 2019. As of September 29, 2018, the Company had $2,107,000 of deferred revenue recorded on its balance sheet as a result of these modifications.
