Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (“ Khiron ” or, the “ Company ”) (TSXV: KHRN), (OTCQB: KHRNF), (Frankfurt: A2JMZC), announced today that it has re-filed its unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements, together with the notes thereto, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 (the “ Interim Financial Statements ”) to correct, among other things, certain 2019 comparative period information and to update certain presentation arising from the Company’s early adoption of IFRS 3 in late 2019, which changes were identified in connection with the Company’s review engagement with its auditor. The Company does not consider these adjustments either individually nor in the aggregate, to be material.

The re-filed Interim Financial Statements reflect changes to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Statements of Loss and Comprehensive Loss comparative period to remove transaction fees from the income statement and capitalize them to the applicable acquisition in accordance with the Company’s early adoption of the amended IFRS 3 as set out in Note 2, and to reclassify $1 million from general and administrative expenses to transaction fees for presentation purposes to conform with the Company’s presentation used in its audited consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 (the “ Audited Annual Financial Statements ”). The re-filed interim Financial Statements also reflect changes to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Statement of Changes in Shareholders’ Equity to correct the 2019 comparative period balances as they incorrectly reflect Q1 2019 period balances, update certain presentation to conform with the Company’s presentation used in its Audited Annual Financial Statements; and reduce the valuation conclusion of the Company’s acquisition of NettaGrowth International Inc. to conform with the Audited Annual Financial Statements. The re-filed Interim Financial Statements also bring forward the subsequent event note disclosure.

On September 8, 2020, Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB) stunned the market when it announced that it expected to record up to $1.8 billion in goodwill impairment charges in the fourth quarter of 2020. On the same day, Aurora also announced a charge of approximately $140 million in the carrying value of certain inventory, and that it was appointing a new chief executive officer. On this news, Aurora’s stock fell approximately 11.6% in just one day. Since May 2020, Aurora’s stock is down approximately $10.00 per share

A lawsuit alleging violations of federal securities laws has been filed against Aurora and certain of its officers and directors. The suit alleges, among other things, that Aurora misled investors as to the value of prior acquisitions, that the Company had experienced degradation in certain assets, and that as a result, it was foreseeable that Aurora would record significant goodwill and asset impairment charges. According to the lawsuit, this news was so shocking because Aurora had previously lauded a “business transformation plan” that would purportedly “better align the business financially with the current realities of the cannabis market.”
