Additional comments:

  1. During November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes, which simplifies the presentation of deferred income taxes. ASU 2015-17 provides presentation requirements to classify deferred tax assets and liabilities as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. Early adoption is permitted for any interim and annual financial statements that have not yet been issued. We early adopted ASU 2015-17 effective October 31, 2015, retrospectively. Adoption resulted in a $1.7 million decrease in other accounts receivable and prepaid expenses, a $0.6 million decrease in other accounts payable and accrued expenses, a $0.7 million decrease in Long-term deferred tax assets, net, and a $1.8 million decrease in Long-term deferred tax liability, net in our Consolidated Balance Sheets at December 31, 2014. Adoption had no impact on our results of operations and cash flow.
  2. During the three months period ended December 31, 2015 the company adjusted the gain from the sale of equity investment of affiliated company reported in the three months period ended March 31, 2015.
  3. During Q3 2015, the Company identified an error related to the classification of US employees' social benefits expenses. Previously, the Company classified these expenses in 'general and administrative expenses' instead of classifying a part of them in 'Cost of goods' (product and services) for employees allocated to this line item. This change in classification also impacted the capitalization of inventory balances. There was no material impact on the statement of cash flows. The error only impacts one segment of the Company, Heat Transfer Services and Products. The Company will revise previously reported segment information in its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2015. The Company assessed the materiality of this error in accordance with the SEC's Staff Accounting Bulletin 99 and Accounting Standards Codification Topic 250, Accounting Changes and Error Corrections, and concluded that the previously issued financial statements were not materially misstated.  In accordance with the SEC's Staff Accounting Bulletin, the Company will correct these errors by revising the affected financial statements in the Company's 2015 Annual Report on Form 20-F.

 

Following is the effect of the revision on the Company's previously reported results:
