By , in PR PR World on .

TORONTO, Dec. 21, 2017 — Mega Uranium Ltd. (TSX: MGA) announces that it has restated certain 2016 comparative financial information (the “Comparative Statements”) in the company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2017, which were filed today on SEDAR under Mega’s profile (www.sedar.com).  The restatement relates to the accounting of Mega’s equity-accounted investment in Toro Energy Limited, arising from differences in the accounting policies of the two entities.
During its financial year ended September 30, 2016, Mega changed its accounting policy for mineral properties and deferred exploration expenditures from capitalizing the costs to recognizing them in the consolidated statement of income and comprehensive income.  During the period, Toro continued to capitalize its own mineral properties and deferred exploration costs but Mega did not make applicable adjustments to reconcile the newly-differing accounting policies when it accounted for its investment in Toro.The Comparative Statements have been restated to correct the error and the changes to the applicable statements are set out below.  All financial information is reported in thousands of Canadian dollars, except for per share amounts.The impact on the consolidated statement of financial position as at October 1, 2015 is as follows:The impact of this change on the consolidated financial statement as at and for the year ended September 30, 2016 is as follows:
