Auditor Changes week ending 17 Aug 2014

Back from a week in the mountains to bring you the latest auditor changes. Fusion Telecommunications became a KPMG client when KPMG acqauired Rothstein Kass back at the end of June. Fusion dropped KPMG last week  due to uncertainty around the timing for KPMG to complete review procedures. It was bound to happen. When CPA firms combine, some clients end up feeling left out.

As predicted a week ago, the filings related to the Silberstein / KLJ merger are beginning to taper off. Breaking them out separately here to keep the table above relatively noise free.

Auditor Changes week ending 27 Jul 2014

A solid week of auditor changes.

L&L Energy is going through a bit of a rough patch. The former CEO, Dickson Lee, has been indicted by the US Department of Justice and the company has begun an, “investigation into certain actions taken by Mr. Lee while he served as CEO.  These actions relate to…certain issues surrounding the Company’s ownership of its assets located in the People’s Republic of China.” The filing also notes that due to the indictment, “the Company has had difficulty collecting receivables in China.” All this boils down to no cash to pay the auditors, so the auditors were let go. C’est la vie, at least, for an audit firm.

Here’s the full list:

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation

UPDATE 08/04/2014: A sharp eyed reader alerted us to an auditor change that we missed. China based NQ Mobile let go of PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP when the audit firm wanted to expand the scope of work after a special committee independent investigation into electronic data collected by the company. NQ then engaged Marcum Bernstein Pinchuk LLP and has, “full confidence in their ability to conduct their work independently, diligently, and expeditiously.” You can read the full press release here.

Auditor Changes week ending 20 Jul 2014

After a spurt of activity in June, things have more or less gone back to normal in auditor change world. Only thing to point out this week is Synergy Strips (side note: it sounds dirty doesn’t it? If you make the effort to go to the website, at first glance you might think it is, then realize quickly it’s not). Synergy used two filings, one to note a dismissal, then another to note a new auditor. Quick tip to whoever does SEC reporting over there; you can accomplish the same thing in only one filing. That’s the kind of value-add The Auditor Carousel brings.

Now, for value-add of a different kind:

Auditor Changes week ending 13 Jul 2014

Don’t let this week’s long list fool you. A lot of the changes stem from the Rothstein Kass acquisition by KPMG. Some companies are choosing to stick with KPMG, (or is it KPMG choosing to stick with them?) while others go with a new firm. The acquisition expands KPMG’s presence in the Northeast.

The Ventas dismissal of Ernst & Young was brought about due to an independence conflict. It seems there was an “inappropriate relationship” between the EY audit partner, and someone at Ventas in a financial reporting oversight role. If you give the 8-K a read, you get the feeling Ventas isn’t happy about having to go back and have two years worth or re-audit work done. There are probably some other things the company isn’t happy about, too.

Here’s this week’s list:
