Question

On December 16, 2010, Medianet Group's CFO and Company's Board of Directors concluded that the previously issued financial statements contained in the Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for each of the three quarters during the year ended September 30, 2010, should not be relied upon because of the following errors that require a restatement of such financial statements: Intercompany eliminations. Certain intercompany eliminations were not made during each of the quarters during the year ended September 30, 2010, and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009. In this connection, Medianet determined that during the periods referred to above, insufficient personnel resources were available to perform review and monitoring controls within the accounting function.
Enrollment fees. The Company determined that revenue from the sale of its eBiz kits was erroneously recorded for each of the quarters during the year ended September 30, 2010, and for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009. The Company's nonrefundable eBiz kits fee revenue was previously recognized when collected. Based on a review of Staff Accounting Bulletin ("SAB") 104, the Company revised its revenue recognition of nonrefundable eBiz kits to recognize them on a straight-line basis over the term of the renewal period (12 months).
