The release of the Company’s fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2021 full financial results and the conference call to discuss the results originally scheduled for today, Tuesday, December 7, 2021, will be rescheduled to provide management additional time to work with its independent registered accounting firm to complete its audit work with respect to the valuation of non-cash items related to the embedded derivative on the Company's convertible notes and the non-cash tax impact of acquisitions completed by the Company in the third and fourth quarters of the fiscal year. The Company is working diligently with its auditors to resolve these outstanding non-cash items and expects to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021.
