Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) announced today that it has completed its stock-based compensation review and filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006 with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Forrester expects to file its Form 10-Qs for the first, second, and third quarters of 2007 by November 20, 2007.

Summary of restatement

  • Consistent with Forrester’s previous announcement, the cumulative adjustment for non-cash stock-based compensation expense was $47.6 million, on a pre-tax basis, with $46.6 million attributable to periods prior to 2004.
  • In addition, Forrester is restating its historical financial statements to recognize a deferred tax liability associated with the book tax difference in goodwill primarily relating to a write-down of the goodwill for tax purposes during 2002.
  • Forrester is also restating its interim quarterly financial information for 2006 to reduce the non-cash stock-based compensation expense resulting from the failure to appropriately update management’s estimate of the applicable pre-vesting forfeiture rates.

Full details on the impact of the restatement are contained in the 2006 Form 10-K filed today.
