Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
(a) Resignation of Previous Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm.
Our Board of Directors accepted the October 14, 2018 resignation of LBB & Associates, Ltd., LLP (“LBB”) as our independent registered public accounting firm.
Neither of LBB’s reports on the consolidated financial statements for the past two audited fiscal years (July 31, 2017 and 2016) contained an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, or was qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles except that the reports included an explanatory paragraph relating to an uncertainty as to our ability to continue as a going concern.
During the two most recent audited fiscal years (July 31, 2017 and 2016), and subsequent interim period preceding the resignation of LBB, there have been no disagreements with LBB on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreement(s), if not resolved to the satisfaction of LBB, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement(s) in connection with its report.
During our two most recent fiscal years or any subsequent interim period preceding the resignation of LBB, none of the reportable events listed in paragraphs (a)(1)(v) (A) through (D) of Item 304 of Regulation S-K occurred while LBB was engaged.
We previously provided LBB a copy of this current report on Form 8-K and requested that it furnish us with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not LBB agrees with the above statements. We have received the requested letter from LBB stating that they agree, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this report.
(b) Engagement of New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm.
On October 15, 2018, our Board of Directors appointed MaloneBailey, LLP (“MaloneBailey”) to serve as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending July 31, 2018, effective immediately.
During our two most recent fiscal years and through the interim period through April 30, 2018, neither we nor anyone on our behalf consulted MaloneBailey regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our consolidated financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided by MaloneBailey to us that MaloneBailey concluded was an important factor considered by us in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event (as described in Item 304(a)(1) (v) of Regulation S-K).
