ViaDerma, Inc. Files Amended Financial Statements
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) ViaDerma, Inc., (OTC Pink: VDRM) published a Quarterly Report for the three months ended March 31, 2021, on the OTC Markets website reporting Convertible Notes Payable of $281,538.00 and a Convertible Line of Credit of $19,000.00. Two weeks prior, the Company had issued a press release dated March 16, 2021, stating that it had paid off all of its toxic convertible note liabilities. That press release was not accurate, although it was thought to be at the time.
This month, an internal review by VDRM’s accountant determined that the total outstanding convertible debt as of March 31, 2021, was equal to $300,358.00, and this debt was not paid off or settled as stated in its press release. Separately, the internal review found that VDRM had an unrecorded and non-disclosed liability of $200,000. The Company has restated its previous financial statements to reflect this liability. The notes in question were originally issued in 2018.
Additionally, the Company is also announcing that the payment from the recently disclosed transaction in Dubai has been paid and received into an escrow account. Release of the funds to ViaDerma is imminent. ViaDerma intends to allocate part of the proceeds from those funds to engage a qualified auditing firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) to complete an audit of ViaDerma’s financials for the previous two years. Audited financials are required before ViaDerma can make application for listing on the OTCQB and become a fully SEC reporting company.
Dr. Chris Otiko, ViaDerma President and CEO, stated, “This was a very regrettable oversight and error on our part. As soon it was brought to my attention, I took swift action to rectify the matter and disclose it to our shareholders. Our accountant has amended our previous filings that were affected by this error, which was the reason for the delay in filing our 2nd quarter financial statement.”
Dr. Otiko also said, “This mistake on our part, while unfortunate, does not diminish our accomplishments so far. Our main product, Vitastem, consistently delivers excellent results to our consumers and is steadily becoming more widely known. We are very enthusiastic about the future of the Company and what lies ahead.”
