LOS ANGELES — Accounting issues forced the Sports Club Co. Inc. to delay reporting financial results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2005.

All the work required to prepare the company's consolidated financial statements has been completed, but the company attributed the delay to the complexities surrounding accounting for and reporting of landlord incentives under operating leases, assets held for sale and initiation fee revenue. These matters will result in several reclassifications of the company's reported results for the first and second quarters of 2004, the company said in a release.
