Auditor Changes week ending 01 Mar 2015

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.

Auditor Changes week ending 22 Feb 2015

I’ll just point out this week that when an auditor resigns, it’s unusual for the resignation letter from auditor to client to get filed as an attachment. But it happened this week. In Peterson Sullivan’s letter to Lenco Mobile, we find out that Peterson considers their independence impaired because they are a creditor to Lenco in bankruptcy proceedings. I’d consider their independence impaired as well.

2/20/2015 HSBC USA Inc. NY Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP
2/20/2015 HSBC Finance Corporation IL Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP

If you’re wondering why the dismissal box is blank for HSBC, it’s because PwC was engaged for 2015 work, and 2014 audit work likely hasn’t wrapped up. Good idea not to fire your auditor until after the 10-K is filed.

Auditor Changes week ending 08 Feb 2015

This week’s interesting 8-K find comes courtesy of Turbodyne Technologies. Company CEO, Jason Meyers, “signed a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent with FINRA consenting to the entry of findings by FINRA, without admitting or denying any wrongdoing, that he misappropriated a portion of the proceeds of a private placement.” So, he agreed that he misappropriated assets, but somehow doesn’t admit or deny wrongdoing. That’s pretty lame. Speaking of which, after signing, Mr. Meyers made, “prompt efforts to withdraw his consent.”  Though all this happened last September, auditor MaloneBailey just got around to resigning this week.  Which brings us to this week’s full list of auditor switches:

Auditor Changes week ending 25 Jan 2015

The most exciting news this week is the L.L Bradford merger with RBSM. Or maybe it was AlphaPoint Technology, which filed an 8-K about a change in auditor, then an 8-K/A to clarify that while the first 8-K said there was substantial doubt about their ability to continue as a going concern, the actual audit report stated only that there was doubt, not substantial doubt. Like I said, not much exciting this week.

Auditor Changes week ending 18 Jan 2015

Every once in a while, we see boomerang auditor changes; a switch from one auditor to another, then a change back a short while later. This week there were three boomerang changes. In November, Event Cardio Group let go of Paritz and Co. and engaged M&K CPAs. This week, they switched back to Paritz. Same story for AF Ocean Investment. Back in October, AF Ocean engaged Cutler and Co. and let go of DKM. This week it was back to DKM. Lastly, Bongiovanni & Associates resigned as auditor of REMSleep Holdings in April. Any guesses who was re-engaged just this week?

Auditor Changes week ending 11 Jan 2015

It’s the time of year when auditors are thinking ahead and asking themselves, “Do I really want to audit this company again?” When answered in the negative, you end up with auditors declining to stand for reelection. This week, 5 auditors decided enough is enough.

There were dismissals and resignations, as well. Oriental Dragon and their auditor, Marcum Bernstein, argued about online access to bank statements, and parted ways without resolving the issue. And, a few weeks after De Joya Griffith resigned, JRSIS Healthcare engaged Albert Wong.

Here’s the full list:
