Is there any reason you would want to look into the original statements if you have the restated available?

  • Could you elaborate how it is related to personal finance ?

    I want to invest in stocks, and I am contemplating the reasons for why someone would want to look at the original statements if the restated ones are available

  • Add that in your post to clarify. It doesn't seems so from your post.

Personally, I would want to compare the differences between the original sheets and the restated sheets. A lot of times this is simply a recategorization of an asset or a liability or something but I'd be wary if a company has a habit of restating its financials.
