Item 5. Other
Certain financial advisors to the Chapter 11 trustee overseeing the jointly administered bankruptcy cases of Coram Healthcare Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Coram, Inc., previously furnished an enterprise valuation analysis, dated December 11, 2002, to Coram Healthcare Corporation and its subsidiaries (collectively the Company). Such enterprise valuation analysis was utilized in the determination of the Companys goodwill impairment pursuant to Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets (Statement 142).
In certain ongoing bankruptcy-related proceedings, the Companys management, the Chapter 11 trustee and his financial advisors were made aware of inaccuracies in the aforementioned enterprise valuation analysis. In connection therewith, management estimates that the Companys non-cash charge for the impairment of goodwill and other long-lived assets during the year and quarter ended December 31, 2002, as included in the audited consolidated financial statements in the Annual Report on Form 10-K/A Amendment No. 1, was overstated by approximately $10 million to $12 million; however, as further discussed in the following paragraph, management has not yet completed all of its financial analyses relative to this matter. Because management believes that there will be no related income tax effect, the reported net income for the year and quarter ended December 31, 2002 is expected to be favorably impacted by an amount equivalent to the correction of the overstated non-cash charge. There will be no income statement impact for the quarter ended March 31, 2003.
Management is currently working with the Chapter 11 trustees financial advisors to complete an amended enterprise valuation report whereupon the amount of the overstatement of the non-cash charge for the impairment of goodwill will be determined. Additionally, management expects to work with its independent auditors to make the necessary adjustments to the Companys consolidated financial statements included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K/A Amendment No. 1 for the year ended December 31, 2002 and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2003 as soon as practical. Management is not currently aware of any other material adjustments that will be required to the Companys consolidated financial statements; however, it is possible that other adjustments may be identified in the process of restating the Companys consolidated financial statements.
Note: Except for historical information, all other statements in this report are forward-looking within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The Companys actual results may vary materially from these forward-looking statements due to important risk factors, including the Companys lack of profitability; uncertainties associated with the outcomes of certain pending legal matters, including the bankruptcy proceedings; the Companys leveraged financial structure; the Companys ability to comply with certain governmental regulations; the Companys need to obtain additional financing or equity; the Companys limited liquidity; the Companys dependence upon its relationships with third party payers and the prices paid by such third party payers for the Companys services; and certain other factors. Risk factors are described in greater detail in the Companys Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Form 10-Q Quarterly Reports and Form 8-K Current Reports on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
