    Some financial reporting frameworks contain an explicit requirement according to which the management must make an explicit assessment of the entity’s ability to continue the activity. Management’s evaluation regarding the Company’s ability to continue the activity involves reasoning at some point in time, regarding future results, uncertain by their nature, of the events or conditions. Further on, the auditors should evaluate the management’s assessment regarding the ability of the Company to continue the activity, taking into account the extent in which the management’s assessment includes all relevant information of which the auditor is aware as a result of the audit. Finally, based on the audit evidence obtained, the auditor should conclude whether, according to his reasoning, there is a material uncertainty related to events or conditions that, individually or collectively, may cast significant doubt on the ability of the Company to continue the activity.
