"On September 16, 2021, approximately five months ago, we received a letter from the Securities & Exchange Board of India, dated September 16, 2021, wherein they appointed a forensic auditor, primarily concerning queries relating to Impairment of Assets in the FY 19-20 and the charge taken thereon. Impairment charge, a non-cash charge, was taken by the Company due to the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and its applicability worldwide," said Brightcom Group Limited.
