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


On November 11, 2019, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Committee”) of JanOne Inc. (the “Company”), in consultation with management, concluded that the Company’s previously issued financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 29, 2018 (which includes the financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2017) and the quarterly period ended March 30, 2019 (collectively, the “Restated Periods”) should no longer be relied upon because of omitted disclosures related to certain lease agreements with third party landlords in which the Company either remains the counterparty, is a guarantor, or has agreed to remain contractually liable under the lease, following the sale of ApplianceSmart, Inc. on December 30, 2017. The omitted disclosures described above will result in the restatement of our financial statements for the Restated Periods and the interim periods within the year ended December 29, 2018.


The Committee has discussed the matters disclosed herein with SingerLewak LLP, the Company’s former independent registered public accounting firm for the Restated Periods, and WSRP LLC, the Company’s current independent registered public accounting firm.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
