To the shareholders of Tamarak Corporation,

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Tamarak Corporation as of
October 31, 2009, and the related statements of income, retained earnings, and cash
flows for the past year. These financial statements are the responsibility of the
company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these
financial statements based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in
the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the
audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are
free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence
supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also
includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by
management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We
believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
The company has included in property and debt in the accompanying balance sheet
certain lease obligations that, in our opinion, should be expensed in order to
conform with generally accepted accounting principles. If these lease obligations
were capitalized, property would be decreased by $4,000,000, long-term debt by
$2,000,000, and retained earnings by $180,000 as of October 31, 2009, and net
income and earnings per share would be decreased by $180,000 and $0.62,
respectively, for the past year.
