TORONTO and MELBOURNE, Australia, Dec. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Banxa Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BNXA) (OTCQX: BNXAF) (FSE: AC00) (“Banxa” or the “Company“) announces an update on the FY23 audit.
As announced on November 29, 2023, the independent accounting firm reviewed Banxa’s agency revenue recognition policy and determined that Banxa’s revenue recognition policy is sound. Banxa and the independent accounting firm have had detailed discussions with Banxa’s audit partner, PKF Antares (“PKF”), on the agency revenue recognition policy. PKF is currently reconsidering its view of Banxa’s agency revenue recognition policy and is expected to provide a final response on its view in a matter of days. Following this response, Banxa will have clarity on its audit completion timeline.
“It has been frustrating to revisit a well established accounting policy of Banxa that has led to extensions of the audit completion deadline. The Board and Management team understand the frustration of our Shareholders to endure another audit delay. However, Banxa has made every effort to ensure an expeditious and thorough completion of the FY23 audit. Despite these delays Banxa’s business has continued to get stronger and I am confident the market will soon begin to reflect the intrinsic value of the business,” said Executive Director and Head of Corporate Affairs, Zafer Qureshi.
