EDMONTON, Nov. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Carfinco Financial Group Inc. ("Carfinco" or the "Company") has amended and restated its unaudited consolidated interim financial statements and related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.
Since issuing its consolidated interim financial statements and MD&A for the third quarter, the Company's management discovered that it made an error in the calculation of the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, creating an incorrect calculation in the Company's basic and diluted earnings per share. The Company has corrected this error and, as a result, made certain adjustments to the earnings per share in the financial information presented in its interim financial statements and MD&A originally issued for this period. Earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2013 have been amended from 17 cents per share to 16 cents per share and earnings per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 have been amended from 61 cents per share to 59 cents per share.
The refiled interim financial statements and MD&A have been filed with the Canadian securities regulators on SEDAR and are available at www.sedar.com.
