(1) States the president's or other person's reasonable belief as to whether the statements were prepared on the basis of generally accepted accounting principles and, if not, describes the basis of preparation.
(2) Describes any respects in which the statements were not prepared on a basis of accounting consistent with the statements prepared for the preceding year.
