EiDF finalizes its return to the stock market after publishing the PWC ‘forensic’ and reformulating accounts

These results were reformulated after discrepancies with its auditor PwC, which has demonstrated an exhaustive post-hoc accounting analysis (forensic, in financial jargon) to put in order some of the irregularities it detected and sparked a bitter debate about the accounts.

The company has also announced its intention to strengthen its Corporate Governance and internal control procedures as part of an improvement plan. EiDF has commissioned the selection of a financial director (CFO) and an operations director (COO) to reinforce the management team that will continue to be led by Fernando Romero Martínez, CEO and main shareholder.

In said board of directors that resulted in the annual accounts of EiDF, held on August 12, at a point prior to the formulation of the accounts, the executive director Mercedes Rey submitted her resignation, although she maintains her position as financial director of EIDF in functions.

However, Romero downplays the effects that the adopted changes will have on his accounts. “The considerations made in the Forensic report entail, at most, an adjustment of some two million euros that have been recorded in the Company’s accounts with due legal publicity, an amount that does not even reach 1%. of the global turnover of the Company in 2022, so its impact on the company accounts is practically nil”, he explains.
