Dell plays down impact of 2003-06 restatements
A Dell spokesman was widely reported as claiming that the cumulative reduction of earnings amounted to $92 million over the four-year period, when the company's net income was more than $12 billion.
The yearly affect of the change was typically a 1-3 cent addition to the earnings per share figure.
The full 10-K filing report  is available from the SEC and with the latest filings, the company said in an official press statement  it expected to achieve compliance with NASDAQ's continued listing requirements.
However, the company also indicated that it and several current and former executives are parties to a number of shareholder lawsuits arising from the accounting irregularites. Four class action suits have been consolidated into a single "Dell Securities Litigation" case in the Western District of Texas, Austin division. If and when the cases reach court, the restatements and their financial impact are likely to be scrutinized in more detail.
