Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review
On January 7, 2013, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of CNL Healthcare Properties, Inc. (the Company) concluded that the Companys previously issued unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012 and for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, as contained in the Companys Quarterly Reports on Forms 10-Q for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012, should no longer be relied upon because of the error described below. This decision was made after consultation with the Companys independent registered certified public accounting firm.
The Company became aware of guidance that existed with respect to costs incurred in connection with the acquisition of equity method investments and undertook an investigation to determine if the guidance was applicable to the Companys specific transactions and, if so, what the appropriate accounting entries would be. Management prepared an analysis and based on its review concluded that under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States equity method investments should be treated as asset acquisitions, with costs incurred to put the investment in place being capitalized as part of the basis in the investment. The Company had incorrectly expensed acquisition fees and expenses related to its equity method investments. The capitalized transaction costs incurred at the investor level create an outside basis difference that should be allocated to the assets of the investee, and if assigned to depreciable or amortizable assets, then the basis difference should be depreciated or amortized as a component of equity in earnings (loss) of unconsolidated entities. Upon completion of managements investigation and analysis of this item, the Audit Committee met on January 7, 2013 to review the analysis and the impact of applying the correct accounting treatment and, as discussed above, concluded that the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the quarters and year-to-date periods ended June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012 should be restated to correct the error described above.
The following table sets forth the effects of the restatement on certain line items within the Companys previously issued unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements:
In connection with the restatements described above, the Companys management reassessed their evaluation of the effectiveness of the Companys disclosure controls and procedures for the periods ended June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012 and concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures are not effective at the reasonable assurance level and a material weakness existed as of June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012. Upon identifying this error, management initiated certain actions expected to remediate the material weakness related to the Companys internal controls over financial reporting that address the accounting for acquisition costs for
transactions accounted for using the equity method of accounting, including changes to the design of the documentation and processes used to evaluate accounting for acquisitions. The Company intends to file, as soon as practicable, amended Quarterly Reports on Form 10Q/A for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and September 30, 2012.
