Financial Update, Perry Metz
It is time for our external audit. WTIU/WFIU is the only IU dept that goes through an external audit. Our CPB grant will be less but over the next 3 years it will be a wash and will even out, however the balance sheet will look very different. We will not have the assets to show and retirement benefits will appear much higher. This is not a true reflection of our assets.
