A couple things to point out before getting to this week’s list. First off, a little misdirection. At the time they announced the dismissal of Grant Thornton, a couple American Realty Capital entities said they were talking to CohnReznick about being the replacement auditor. This week, one entity engaged KPMG, while the other went with Crowe Horwath. No reason given for the CohnReznick head fake.
Secondly, sometimes you have to break up to show you’re serious. Li and Company resigned as auditor of Centaurus Diamond Technologies citing unpaid fees. Once the fees got paid, Li was totally cool with auditing Centaurus again. How about that? An auditor change (or lack of one) as a life lesson.
