Auditor Changes week ending 05 Jan 2014

Welcome to a new year on the Auditor Carousel, where we cover changes in the auditors of SEC filers.

This week there are a few things worth highlighting. LCNB Corp announced their external auditor and internal auditors were switching places.  J.D. Cloud will be moving from external auditor to internal auditor, and BKD is moving from internal auditor to external.

Last month, Lakeland Bancorp announced they were dismissing Grant Thornton upon completion of the 2013 audit. In GT’s eyes, that must not have been soon enough, because this week they resigned effective immediately.

Lastly, in addition to announcing the RBSM resignation, Trilliant Exploration also noted they’d done some negotiating, and had $2.5 million in debt cancelled, and replaced with a $250,000 promissory note.  Not too shabby.
