NESR Provides Update on Plans for SEC Filings and Nasdaq Relisting
13 Sep 2023
HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / September 13, 2023 / National Energy Services Reunited Corp. ("NESR" or the "Company") an international, industry-leading provider of integrated energy services in the Middle East and North Africa ("MENA") region,today provided an update on its ongoing efforts to complete its SEC filings and regain its Nasdaq listing.
As previously reported, the Company is working diligently to be in a position as soon as possible to file with the SEC current audited financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020, December 31, 2021, and December 31, 2022, and then seek relisting of the Company's securities on the Nasdaq as quickly as possible. The Company determined that it would be most efficient to have a single audit firm conduct the audits of fiscal years 2020, 2021 and 2022 which enables continuity for open, current, and future years. PricewaterhouseCoopers (Dubai Branch) ("PwC") (the 2021 auditor) could not perform the 2020 audit as they are conflicted because of prior non-audit work. Therefore, PwC and the Company have accordingly decided on a mutual basis that PwC should resign, and the Company has engaged Grant Thornton Audit and Accounting Limited (BVI) ("GT") to conduct the 2020, 2021 and 2022 audits.
Stefan Angeli, Chief Financial Officer, commented, "We believe that engaging a single audit firm best positions us to meet our goal of filing our financial reports with the SEC and relisting on Nasdaq as quickly as possible. The GT audit engagement team mobilized quickly and audit work on our 2020, 2021, and 2022 financial statements is underway. We are focused on completing our prior audits, establishing a continuous relationship with our audit firm, and getting current in our filings. We appreciate the continued support our customers, shareholders, lenders, and employees have provided throughout this process."
