DOUGLAS, Isle of Man & BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Eros STX Global Corporation (NYSE: ESGC) (“ErosSTX”), a global entertainment company, is providing an update on three topics of interest for shareholders and investors.
Firstly, the company filed today with the SEC a transition 20-F report containing a qualitative discussion of legacy STX Entertainment (STX) as well as legacy STX historical financial statements in US GAAP.
Secondly, the company filed today with the SEC a form 6-K clarifying the company’s financial guidance issued on July 30, 2020 following the completion of the merger.
Finally, the company is modifying its financial report format. The company will report full financial results every six months (interims and full-year), and for the first and third fiscal quarters will issue a trading update on key financial and operational metrics. The company is not obligated to report quarterly financial results because it qualifies as a foreign private issuer under the Securities Act of 1933. The company believes this modification to its reporting format is more consistent with its long-term approach to managing the company, while still providing shareholders with timely information about the company’s performance.
Below is a list of the company’s fiscal 2021 financial reports and the expected reporting time frame:
- FY21 Interim Results (6-months ending September 30, 2020): January 2021
- FY21 Third Quarter Trading Update (3-months ending December 31, 2020): March 2021
- FY21 Preliminary Results (12-months ending March 30, 2021): June 2021
The company will not issue a trading update for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 given where we are in the calendar and given the priority is to complete the required regulatory and financial filings associated with the merger.
