(the “Company”), filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 15, 2021 (the “September 15 Current Report”) solely to correct certain disclosures required by Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K and restates the September 15 Current Report in its entirety.
Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
(a) Dismissal of Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
On September 14, 2021 (the "Dismissal Date"), the audit committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Company’s board of directors dismissed Deloitte & Touche LLP ("Deloitte") as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm and informed Deloitte of such decision on the same date.
The reports of Deloitte on the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, as well as during the subsequent interim period preceding the Dismissal Date, there were no (i) “disagreements” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and related instructions) with Deloitte with respect to any matter relating to accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosures, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreement(s), if not resolved to the satisfaction of Deloitte, would have caused it to make reference thereto in its reports on the audited consolidated financial statements of the Company for such years; or (ii) “reportable events” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions), except the material weaknesses reported in Part II, Item 9A “Controls and Procedures” in the Company’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K for the years ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.
The Company has provided Deloitte with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K, as amended, in accordance with Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K and requested that Deloitte provide the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the above disclosures. A copy of Deloitte's letter to the SEC dated September 17, 2021 is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1.
(b) Appointment of New Certifying Accountant
On September 14, 2021 (the “Engagement Date”), the Audit Committee approved the selection and engagement of Marcum LLP ("Marcum") as the Company's new independent registered public accounting firm. During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the subsequent interim period through the Engagement Date, neither the Company, nor anyone on its behalf, consulted Marcum regarding any of the matters or events set forth in Items 304(a)(2)(i) or (ii) of Regulation S-K.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
