Form 8-K for GBS ENTERPRISES INC


23-Aug-2012

Non-Reliance on Previous Financials, Audits or Interim Review


Item 4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

(b) On August 17, 2012, GBS Enterprises Incorporated (the "Company") received a letter from Grant Thornton GmbH ("Grant Thornton"), the independent public accountants of GROUP Business Software AG, Eisenach, a subsidiary of the Company ("GBS AG"), that the financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2011 relating to the audit of GBS AG which were included in the Company's Annual Report for the year ended March 31, 2012 on Form 10-K filed July 16, 2012 and the Form S-1/A filed July 19, 2012, should no longer be relied upon because the audit was not conducted in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (the "PCAOB"). The letter also stated that Grant Thornton conducted a statutory audit of the financial statements of GBS AG in accordance with the German Commercial Code and German Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (the "Statutory Audit"). Such Statutory Audit did not require an audit of the statement of cash flows of GBS AG. The Company's officers have discussed the contents of the letter and the matters disclosed in response to this Item 4.02(b) with Grant Thornton and have concluded that the audit report of the financial statements of GBS AG for the period ended December 31, 2011 can no longer be relied upon. Accordingly, the Company has requested that GBS AG extend the engagement of Grant Thornton to conduct the Statutory Audit in compliance with the standards of the PCAOB as soon as possible and that such extended engagement also include the audit of the statement of cash flows of GBS AG. After receiving Grant Thornton's audit report, the Company intends to amend, as promptly as practicable, its Form 10-K filed July 16, 2012 and its Form S-1/A filed July 19, 2012.

(c) The Company has provided Grant Thornton with a copy of this Form 8-K representing the Company's response to Item 4.02(b) of Form 8-K on the same day as the filing of this Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Company has requested that Grant Thornton furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether Grant Thornton agrees with the statements made by the Company in response to Item 4.02(b) and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. The Company will amend this Form 8-K by filing Grant Thornton's letter as an exhibit to the filed Form 8-K no later than two business days after the Company's receipt of the letter from Grant Thornton as described in this paragraph.
