Auditor Changes week ending 24 May 2015

The saga for Sungame Corp continues. They announced some revenue recognition problems in August of last year. In November, auditor Cutler & Co. resigned. Then, in March of this year, auditor Pybus was engaged. Now this week Pybus resigned. Who will step in next to continue the work?

Ournett Holdings dismissed M&K CPAs, “for no cause,” which begs the question, why make a change in the first place?

Here’s this week’s full list:

Auditor Changes week ending 17 May 2015

The third annual Change Your Auditor Week was a success! The (mostly) tongue in cheek week celebrated all companies changing auditors, for whatever reason.

A number of odds and ends from this week’s filings to point out:

  • Switzerland based MNP Petroleum let go of one version of BDO to engage the AG version
  • After filing a couple weeks ago saying a reported auditor change was not authorized, Motivating the Masses engaged Anton & Chia, this time, presumably, with authorization
  • Gaming Entertainment International accepted the resignation of Adams Advisory after Ms. Adams reconsidered her workload
  • Tammy Skalko, CEO of House of Bods Fitness (also, “colleague of carmen Elektra”[sic]) had a difficult time securing a prudent auditor, but this week finally found one that is competent (just read the filing.)
  • Hydrogen Future Corporation fired old auditor Thomas Bravos, and hired John Scrudato with possibly the shortest filing ever on the matter; just 47 words

Round and round and round…

Auditor Changes week endin 11 May 2015

Over the past couple weeks, Danielle Adams and Adams Advisory LLC have taken on a number of clients formerly audited by Terry L. Johnson (Terry is telling clients he can’t do SEC audits anymore). This week Alternet Systems received notice that Adams Advisory resigned, “based upon Ms. Adams’ inability to service the Registrant to the best of her ability based upon her current workload.” CPAs love taking on more work than they can handle. It’s what they do. Congratulations to Ms. Adams for recognizing when too much was just too much, and actually doing something about it.

Auditor Changes week ending 03 May 2015

CMG Holdings demonstrates the type of efficiency we like to see on the Carousel. In the space of 12 days, they made two auditor changes. Did they file two separate 8-Ks? Nope, they put them both in one filing. Terry Johnson was engaged, then he informed them he couldn’t sign SEC audits, so he had to resign. John Scrudato was the last auditor standing when it was all said and done.

Auditor Changes week ending 26 Apr 2015

Busiest week on the Carousel in quite some time. A number of companies this week switched from Terry L. Johnson to Adams Advisory LLC. In at least one case, the switch was made without the approval of anyone at the company. Motivating the Masses 8-K says the initial 8-K, filed 4/20/15,  “was made by a consultant to the Company that had absolutely no authority to make such filing.” They then go on to say they were reporting this to the SEC. Oh, and rather than resigning on Monday, Terry Johnson was fired on Friday.

Novus Robotics auditor De Joya Griffith resigned, “based on their perception of a significant increase in the risk of a material misstatement regarding the financial statements of the Company.” It all has to do with every auditor’s favorite topic; revenue recognition. According to Novus, it was a single $98 thousand invoice dated in error. De Joya asked for an investigation, but Novus didn’t think one was necessary. In the end, De Joya resigned.

Here’s the full list of companies making an auditor switch:

Auditor Changes week ending 19 Apr 2015

Quadrant 4 included some interesting facts in their 8-K. During audit, their auditor found some irregularities, “with regard to up to 20 invoices which were erroneously invoiced.” The auditors sent confirmations, and “it appears that as many as 8 to 10 verifications were signed by employees or subcontractors for the Company instead of a responsible officer for the specific clients of the Company to whom the verification requests were addressed.” Phony confirmations, huh? That can’t be good; just ask Deloitte and Grant Thornton about their former client Parmalat.

The Oser Ventures filing made me laugh. Auditor Alan R. Swift resigned, “due to the inactivity and the uncertainty of when and if the Company was going to file any reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission.” No sense in waiting around.

Auditor Changes week ending 05 Apr 2015

American Xanthan filed an 8-K last week naming Ernst & Young as new auditor. This week, they filed another 8-K, still listing BF Borgers as the former auditor, but listing Nexia UHY as the new auditor. No mention of EY anywhere.

Still seeing some filings with companies switching from L.L. Bradford to RBSM. RBSM absorbed L.L a few months back. This week, the PCAOB sanctioned a number of current and former L.L. Bradford auditors for reasons ranging from independence to quality control. You can read the full PCAOB release here.
