Guam - The Office of Public Accountability has released the Guam
Economic Development Authority's Fiscal Year 2012 financial audit.
Independent auditors Deloitte & Touche issued an unqualified

Credit Initiative and the Tobacco Settlement Authority. SSBCI and TSA cumulatively
decreased net assets by $4.3 million and three audit adjustments made for the
trust funds that cumulatively decreased net assets by $95,000.

increase in net assets of $56,000 with revenues increasing by 7% or $338,000 from
$4. 7 million in FY2011 to $5.1 million. Expenses meanwhile remained relatively
the same to FY2011 at $2.7 million.
