Agrify Announces Completed Restatements of Prior Period Results
TROY, Mich., Oct. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Agrify Corporation (Nasdaq: AGFY) (“Agrify” or the “Company”), a leading provider of innovative cultivation and extraction solutions for the cannabis industry, today announced that the Company has completed restatements of previously issued quarterly filings for the first three quarters of its 2022 fiscal year (collectively the “Restatements”). The Company will file its Amended Forms 10-Q for the first, second, and third quarters of 2022 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) today.
The Restatements primarily relate to warrants issued in January 2022 and March 2022 that were reclassified as liabilities rather than as equity, which requires the warrants to be remeasured each reporting period to present them at fair value. As previously announced, the Company also completed a 20 to 1 reverse stock split in July 2023, which is reflected in the restated Forms 10-Q on a retroactive basis.
As expected, the Restatements did not impact the Company’s cash position, business operation, or sales. The adjustments in the fair value of the warrants are non-cash items, but impacted earnings results. A summary of the Company’s historical and current consolidated statements is as follows:
|Description||As Originally Reported||Restatements||As Restated|

|Amortization of debt discount||$||(20||)||$||(203||)||$||(223||)|

“The required adjustments were non-cash and had no impact on our business operations or the economics of our commercial arrangements,” said Raymond Chang, Agrify’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We appreciate the patience of our various stakeholders as we have worked to address the issues identified in our review of Agrify’s historic financial results. We believe the review process undertaken is reflective of our diligent approach to ensuring the integrity of our financial statements and public filings. We continue to work hard to complete our 2022 Annual Report and 2023 Q1 Form 10-Q and 2023 Q2 Form 10-Q filings as expeditiously as possible and look forward to returning to business as usual going forward.
