According to the complaint filed in in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York the plaintiff alleges that Swisher Hygiene Inc. and certain of the Company’s executive officers violated federal securities laws by issuing allegedly false and/or misleading statements, as well as failing to disclose material adverse facts about Swisher’s business, operations and prospects.
On March 28, 2012, Swisher Hygiene Inc. (Nasdaq:SWSH) announced that it informed the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that Swisher Hygiene Inc. will delay its filing of its annual report. Swisher Hygiene Inc. said the delay in filing is due to an ongoing internal review by Swisher Hygiene's Audit Committee primarily relating to possible adjustments to the accounting for business acquisitions and the calculation of the allowance of doubtful accounts receivable. Swisher Hygiene Inc. said that on March 21, 2012, its Board of Directors concluded that the Company's previously issued interim financial statements for the quarterly periods ended June 30, 2011 and September 30, 2011, and the other financial information in the Company's quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the periods then ended, should no longer be relied upon. Subsequently, on March 27, 2012, the Audit Committee concluded that the Company's previously issued interim financial statements for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2011 should also no longer be relied upon. Swisher Hygiene Inc said that the Audit Committee's review is not complete and while the amount of any such adjustments cannot be estimated with reasonable certainty at this time, to date, the Audit Committee has preliminarily identified an aggregate of approximately $3.6 million in increases to net loss before income taxes for the affected periods.
