SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ:MYGN), a leader in molecular diagnostics and personalized medicine, today announced that it is moving its fiscal fourth-quarter 2018 sales and earnings conference call with investors and analysts to 4:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, August 21, 2018, one week following the previous planned date. A delay in the financial close occurred as the Company was preparing for the transition from Accounting Standards Codification® (ASC)-605 to ASC-606, because revenue adjustments were identified for the financial periods from fiscal year 2015 through fiscal year 2018. The Company is reviewing these adjustments with its outside auditor and currently anticipates that these adjustments will amount to less than one percent of reported revenue. For fiscal year 2018, the Company is reaffirming its financial guidance provided on the fiscal third-quarter 2018 earnings call.
