Auditor Changes and more

This post has been sitting in draft form for a bit. The decision made, but not sure if I would change my mind. Three weeks later, my decision stands and this will be the last post on The Auditor Carousel. I’ve been publishing it for nearly four years, and it’s time for me to move on.

While our sister site, Big4 Auditor Carousel, was always more popular in terms of page views and clicks, The Auditor Carousel was where the fun was. Where else could you get:

Without further ado (there’s been enough), here’s the last list:

Auditor Changes week ending 26 Jun 2016

The Carousel slowed down last week, with only 14 companies making an auditor change.

Creative Learning Corporation is looking for a new auditor after Hartley Moore Accountancy resigned. In an interesting pairing, the same filing also lists a number of fraud claims against the former CEO.

From the mPhase Technologies 8-K, we learn that you have to pay your auditor, or they will quit, eventually. The filing notes the company has not paid auditor Buchbinder Tunick for, “prior Form 10K and 10Q filings.” Also notes the company has been negotiating with the auditor, “in an attempt to resolve this matter.”

Auditor Changes week ending 05 Jun 2016

A number of filings this week reflecting the merger of Stegman & Company with Dixon Hughes Goodman. The 8-K filed by Celsion Corporation is classic. It reads like an advertisement for new auditor, Dixon Hughes:

With more than 2,000 people in 12 states, DHG ranks among the nation’s top 20 public accounting firms offering comprehensive assurance, tax and advisory services focusing on major industry lines and serving clients in all 50 states as well as internationally.

I’ll bet it wouldn’t take much effort to find where that was lifted from. I was right; found it in ~10 seconds here.

Auditor Changes week ending 22 May 2016

China based THRF Company Limited has a new auditor after the company could not agree with WWC on a deadline to issue a review report. Per the 8-K, the disagreement was based on, “the Company’s inability to provide financial statements to the WWC in a timely manner despite WWC’s written reminders to the Company requesting information. WWC believes that it should be provided such financial statements and supporting information with adequate time to perform audit and review procedures to properly discharge its duty.” I’m pretty sure an auditor wrote that part. They don’t sound like words that would come naturally from a company. Something I am sure the auditor wrote was this letter, addressed to the SEC, where WWC says they want to collect outstanding fees, and “reserve the right to request payment of a retainer to our firm prior to providing assistance to any successor auditor.”

The fourth annual Change Your Auditor Week was a smashing success. All in, 34 companies made an auditor change. Lots of the credit goes to Albert Wong of AWC and Dominic KF Chan for combining practices to form DCAW.

Handing out a couple awards this year.

  • The multi-address diversity award goes to Asiya Pearls, which is incorporated in Nevada, headquartered in Mexico, lists its mailing address in Florida, and a former address listed for India.
