(OTCBB:DRLY) ("Doral" or "the Company"), announced today that it has corrected an accounting anomaly while preparing Doral's 2010 Fiscal Year End Financial Reports.

Correcting the above referenced accounting treatment will result in no impact to Net Income for the Relevant Period.

Doral will seek to restate the following reporting periods, as soon as practicable:

  • 10Q – Three Months Ended April 30, 2010

E. Will Gray II, CEO & Chairman of Doral, states, "Management has worked diligently to prepare our year-end financial audit to properly identify this accounting anomaly. We are pleased the there will not be no impact to Net Income as a result of this discovery and we believe we will deliver the most accurate financial reports to Doral Shareholders."
