Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements
On April 4, 2014, in connection with the audit of the financial statements for WindStream Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, management of the Company conducted analysis of the Company’s equity transactions to determine if all of the transactions were recognized. As a result of the analysis, the Company determined that certain equity transactions were not recognized as of and for the period ended September 30, 2013.
On or about July 22, 2013, the Company issued a total of 1,100,000 warrants. The Company determined the fair value of the warrants as of the date of issuance was approximately $54,000 using the Black Scholes option value pricing model.
On or about July 29, 2013, the Company issued a total of 4,820,000 options. The Company determined the fair value of the options as of the date of issuance was approximately $240,000 using the Black Scholes option value pricing model.
On April 4, 2014, as a result of the analysis, management and the Board of Directors concluded that it was necessary to restate its previously filed condensed consolidated financial statements in the quarterly report Form 10Q for the period ended September 30, 2013, filed on November 18, 2013. The restatements are required to properly reflect the Company’s condensed consolidated financial results for the period mentioned above. As a result, the condensed consolidated financial statements included in the Form 10Q should no longer be relied upon.
As a result of the restatement, the table below sets forth the changes to be made it the condensed consolidated financial statements previously filed. The effect is due to the recognition of the issuance of the warrants and options on the date of grant. Accordingly, the accounts below have been retroactively adjusted as summarized below:

Management is continuing to assess the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and its disclosure controls and procedures, and expects to report material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting through the present time, due to its failure to properly account for the debt and equity transactions. Management will fully report its conclusion on internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures upon completion of the restatement process.
The Board of Directors and management of the Company have discussed the matters disclosed herein with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, Hartley Moore Accountancy Corporation.
The Company intends to file amendments to its Form 10-Q for the third quarter end September 30, 2013, containing restated unaudited financial statements, to correct the error as soon as reasonably practicable.
