As previously disclosed, CareFusion is modifying the manner in which it applies lease accounting principles to sales-type leases in its Pyxis® medication and supply dispensing product lines, which delayed the filing of its fiscal 2012 Form 10-K and first quarter Form 10-Q for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2012. The company announced on Dec. 19 that it intends to file its Form 10-K, first quarter Form 10-Q and second quarter Form 10-Q by Feb .11, the filing deadline for the second quarter Form 10-Q.
As a result of the Form 10-K filing delay, the company also delayed the filing of its proxy materials and postponed the scheduling of its 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Pending the company's ability to become current in its filings, the CareFusion 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held on April 15 at 8:30 a.m. PDT in San Diego. Stockholders as of Feb. 14 will be entitled to vote at the 2012 Annual Meeting. CareFusion intends to make its proxy materials for its 2012 Annual Meeting available by the end of February.
