15 15 Papiers Stadacona Legal Issues Q Working Capital Adjustment Dispute: Daishowa North America Corporation (DNAC), the seller of the CPS, has disputed EIMs calculation of the amount of the working capital adjustment to be paid to DNAC. EIM calculated the working capital adjustment amount to be C$10,400,000, whereas DNAC asserts that the correct amount is approximately C$14,000,000. In discussions with DNAC and their accountants, we have learned that DNAC takes the position that (i) there does not need to be consistency in the manner in which the pro forma June 30, 1999 financial statements were prepared (for which the working capital amount was determined) and closing balance sheet and (ii) Enron was incorrect in their preparation of the closing date balance sheet on a GAAP basis consistent with the prior unaudited interim and audited annual financial statements because each of the items were, individually, immaterial. EIM takes a view that (i) accounting standards are required to be applied on a consistent basis in the preparation of the financial statements of a company, and (ii) it is incorrect to assert that the consistent application of accounting standards relates only to individually material items. DNAC has rejected EIMs proposal to settle the matter for C$12,000,000, and the matter is currently being referred to a neutral third party accountant for resolution as provided in the Purchase Agreement. b. Lignotech Claim: CPS was presented with a claim for reimbursement by Lignotech (U.S.) Inc. (Lignotech) in the amount of $15,000 for groundwater testing expenses relating to a Daishowa Chemicals Inc., a company sold by Daishowa Inc., CPSs predecessor-in-interest in November 30, Apparently, Daishowa Inc. had been paying such expenses continuously since 1990 (totaling approximately $100,000) even though the indemnification provision of the relevant purchase agreement requires claims to be presented within five years of closing. The alleged groundwater problem relates to a gasoline spill caused in the removal of an underground storage tank shortly before the closing. The position we have taken with Lignotech is that the claim was not made within the required 5-year indemnification period. Lignotech have replied that the claim for current reimbursement is part of the same claim made during the indemnification period and have demanded payment. The position taken with Lignotech was intended to preserve a position in case Lignotech made a future claim for remediation costs against CPS, alleging that the claim for remediation costs relates back to the earlier claims for reimbursement for groundwater testing. Neither the purchase agreement with Lignotech nor the potential contingent liability to Lignotech was disclosed to EIM during due diligence. The indemnification provision in the purchase agreement with Daishowa contains a $3.6 million deductible.
