This case is designed to provide you with the opportunity to examine several reporting issues, in the period between an IPO and bankruptcy filing, for a “dotcom” company that failed. You will consider the information provided to outside users of financial statements in several company reporting mechanisms including the financial disclosures made by the company in its 10‐Q and 10‐K filings to the SEC, the pro forma earnings reported in press releases, and the information available to the public to evaluate a going concern assumption. Further, you will also examine the impact of analysts' forecasts on management's release of financial information to the public.
