Edgio is a software company known as “Limelight Networks, Inc.” until June 16, 2022.
On February 11, 2021, Edgio issed a press release announcing its fourth quarter and full year 2020 results, stating that “its GAAP net loss was $(19.3) million, or $(0.16) per basic share, versus a net loss of $(16.0) million, or $(0.14) per basic share, in 2019.” Its 10-K, filed the next day, affirmed those results and had attached certifications attesting to the accuracy and efficacy of its internal financial controls.
From April 2021 through November 2022, the Company’s press releases and filings announcing their financial results all contained the same certifications that their disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
On March 13, 2023, before the market opened, Edgio issued a press release announcing that it will restate its previously issued financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, as well as the quarterly reports for fiscal 2022 and 2021, because its audit committee “identified an error in the Company’s historic accounting treatment of Edgio’s Open Edge solution.” Specifically, the sale of the Open Edge equipment should have been accounted as financing leases.
The Company anticipated the restatements would result in a “reduction to revenue of up to approximately $23.0 million for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2022, up to approximately $16.7 million for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2021, and up to approximately $6.6 million for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2020.” As a result, the Company stated that it would be unable to file its annual report on time.
On this news, the Company’s share price fell $0.1597, or 15.5%, to close at $0.8703 per share on March 13, 2023.
