On October 31, 2023, Blue Ridge disclosed in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that its management “and the Audit Committee of its Board of Directors, after consultation with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and its primary regulator, determined that certain specialty finance loans that, as previously disclosed, were placed on nonaccrual, reserved for, or charged off in the interim periods ended March 31, 2023 and June 30, 2023 should have been reported as nonaccrual, reserved for, or charged off in earlier periods.” Accordingly, Blue Ridge advised that its “audited financial statements included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, and unaudited interim financial statements included in quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2023 and June 30, 2023 should no longer be relied upon and will be restated.” Blue Ridge further advised that “[t]he effect of the adjustments will result in”, among other revisions, “lower net income and earnings per share in the year ended December 31, 2022,” and “that a material weakness existed in the timely risk grading, nonaccrual status, and, thus, in the determination of the adequacy of the allowance for credit losses for the specialty finance portfolio of loans[.]”
