As previously reported on Form 8-K filed November 5, 2015 (Form 8-K), HEI and Hawaiian Electric are in the process of restating HEI’s and Hawaiian Electric’s Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for a) the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, b) the six months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 and c) the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. In addition, they are in the process of revising HEI’s and Hawaiian Electric’s Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for a) the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and b) the year ended December 31, 2014. Management, in consultation with the HEI and Hawaiian Electric Audit Committees, has determined that a material weakness in HEI’s and Hawaiian Electric’s internal control over financial reporting existed at December 31, 2014. HEI and Hawaiian Electric intend to restate their management reports on internal control over financial reporting and their evaluations of disclosure controls and procedures.
For further information, please see the Form 8-K.

HEI and Hawaiian Electric are unable to file their quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2015 (Form 10-Q) within the required period.
