LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 11/16/12 -- Respect Your Universe, Inc. (RYU) (TSX VENTURE: RYU) (OTCQB: RYUN), http://www.ryu.com/, today announced that, based on the recommendation of the audit committee in consultation with the management of the Company and the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, the board of directors of Respect Your Universe, Inc. (the "Company") has concluded that the Company will restate its previously issued audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 and the unaudited financial statements for quarterly periods ended March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012, as well as its selected financial data for the relevant periods. Accordingly, investors should no longer rely upon the Company's previously released financial statements for these periods and other financial data relating to these periods.
The restatement consists of certain non-cash adjustments related to share based compensation, primarily the accounting for stock issued to third parties for future services which was subject to forfeiture by the recipient. None of the adjustments will impact reported cash balances and the restatement will reduce the accumulated deficit previously reported. Until the restatement process is complete, additional information may become available which could cause the Company's current estimates to change. The effects of the restatement on certain reported periods are material and the impact of the adjustments will be disclosed in more detail in the Company's restated financial statements.
While the Company has not finalized the consideration of the impact of these adjustments on its assessment of internal controls over financial reporting, the Company has concluded that these adjustments were the result of one or more material weaknesses in internal controls over financial reporting.
The anticipated impacts of the restatements are as follows:
Year ended December 31, 2011
Total assets will decrease approximately $1,624,000 with a corresponding decrease to total liabilities and shareholder's equity. Net loss will decrease approximately $174,000 with no change to net loss per common share.
Quarter ended March 31, 2012
Total assets will decrease approximately $1,236,000 with a corresponding decrease to total liabilities and shareholder's equity. Net loss will increase approximately $13,000 with no change to net loss per common share.
Quarter ended June 30, 2012
Total assets will decrease approximately $857,000 with a corresponding decrease to total liabilities shareholder's equity. Net loss will decrease approximately $162,000 with no change to net loss per common share.
The above estimates are based on currently available and evaluated information and are preliminary and subject to change during the course of the Company's restatement process.
"There is no impact to our cash balances as a result of these adjustments, and they will primarily result in a decrease in our total assets, liability and shareholder's equity balance sheet amounts. The adjustments will reduce our previously reported accumulated deficit as we more accurately reflect the value of these stock for services transactions," said Steven H. Eklund, the Company's Chief Financial Officer.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.
