|Item 4.01||Changes in Company's Certifying Accountant.|
|(a)||Previous independent registered public accounting firm:|
On January 6, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) approved the dismissal of Marcum LLP (“Marcum”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective January 6, 2020.
For the period from December 28, 2017, the date of our inception, through November 30, 2018, the Company’s previous fiscal year end prior to its reverse merger in October 2019, Marcum’s audit report on the Company’s financial statements did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor was it qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.
During the period from December 28, 2017, the date of our inception, through January 6, 2020, the date of Marcum’s dismissal, (i) there were no “disagreements” (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) between the Company and Marcum on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to Marcum’s satisfaction, would have caused Marcum to make reference in connection with Marcum’s opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement; and (ii) there were no “reportable events” as the term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
We furnished a copy of the disclosures in this report to Marcum and have requested that Marcum furnish us with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether such firm agrees with the above statements or, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. We have received the requested letter from Marcum, and a copy of the letter is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 16.1.
|(b)||New independent registered public accounting firm:|
On January 6, 2020, the Board approved the appointment of BDO China Shu Lun Pan Certified Public Accountants LLP (“BDO”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to audit the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019, effective January 6, 2020.
During the period from our inception through January 5, 2020, the Company has not consulted with BDO regarding (1) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event described in Items 304(a)(1)(iv) or (v), respectively, of Regulation S-K.
