The Nasdaq stock market delisted software maker Peregrine Systems Inc. at the opening of business on July 5, 2002. Peregrine, reeling from an accounting scandal, a management reshuffle and weak demand for its products, said it is out of compliance with Nasdaq rules since its accountants at Andersen informed the company that its financial statements for 2000, 2001 and 2002 should not be relied on. Peregrine said restating its results for those years put it out of compliance with Nasdaq rules requiring that all U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission reports be filed with Nasdaq on a timely basis. Peregrine Systems® Announces Internal Accounting Investigation; CEO and CFO Resign SAN DIEGO, May 6, 2002 -- Peregrine Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRGN) announced today that the board of directors has authorized the audit committee of the board to conduct an internal investigation into potential accounting inaccuracies brought to the attention of the audit committee by KPMG, the company's independent auditors. KPMG was engaged by Peregrine in April to replace Arthur Andersen LLP for the audit of the company's recently completed fiscal year. The scope and magnitude of these matters have not been determined. Based on the preliminary information reviewed to date, certain transactions involving revenue recognition irregularities, totalling as much as $100 million, have been called into question and may have been recorded during periods in fiscal 2001 and 2002. These transactions were recorded initially as revenue from the company's indirect channels and may have been written off in later quarters. These channel transactions and other accounting matters to be investigated may impact financial results for periods in fiscal 2002 and prior. Peregrine has informed the staff of the SEC of its audit committee's internal investigation and will keep the SEC informed of its progress. Additionally, the board announced the resignations of Steve Gardner, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, and Matt Gless, chief financial officer, executive vice president of finance and also a director on the board. In connection with these resignations, the board of directors has appointed Rick Nelson as acting chief executive officer and a director of the board from his position as Peregrine's executive vice president. Peregrine also named Fred Gerson as interim chief financial officer, and Charles La Bella as executive vice president and senior counsel. Mr. Gerson currently serves as the chief financial officer of the San Diego Padres and has held the chief financial officer position with a number of public and private technology companies, including Marimba, Maxis, and Peter Norton Computing. Mr. La Bella was formerly the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California and most recently a partner in the San Diego office of McKenna & Cuneo. In addition, Peregrine's board has named John Moores as its new chairman. Mr. Moores has been a member of Peregrine's board since 1989 and previously served as chairman from March 1990 through July 2000. The board also authorized the appointment of an executive committee, consisting of directors Rod Dammeyer, John Moores, and Charles Noell, to oversee and assist in this management transition.
