Item4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review

 

Brain Scientific Inc. (the “Company”), while undergoing the review of its consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2020, commenced an evaluation of its accounting in connection with certain of its outstanding indebtedness for derivative accounting in accordance with ASC 815. Management of the Company originally deemed these agreements to be fixed in nature and a derivative would not need be recognized.

 

On August 12, 2020, under the authority of the board of directors, the Company, following discussion with Sadler, Gibb & Associates, LLC, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm (“Sadler”), determined that these agreements and underlying warrants should have been recorded as a derivative with changes in the fair value of the derivative to be recorded in the condensed consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss, and concluded that the Company's previously filed financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2020, can no longer be relied upon as the result thereof.

 

As a result of the aforementioned items, the financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2020 will be restated. The Company anticipates filing the restated financial statements as soon as practicable, however the time required to complete the restatements cannot be stated with full certainty at this time.

 

Additionally, the Company discussed with Sadler the matters to be disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K. Sadler was provided a copy of the disclosures made herein and was given the opportunity, no later than the day of filing this Current Report on Form 8-K, to review these disclosures and provide us with a letter stating whether or not they agree with these disclosures. A copy of the letter from Sadler is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, and which is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Until the Company has reissued the restated results for the applicable period discussed above, investors and other users of the Company’s filings with the SEC are cautioned to not rely on the Company’s financial statements in question, to the extent that they are affected by the accounting issues described above. Similarly, related press releases, earnings releases, and investor communications describing the Company's financial statements for these periods should no longer be relied upon.
