Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
On June 24, 2021, COMSovereign Holding Corp. (the “Company”) dismissed Haskell & White LLP (“H&W”) as the Company’s independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021. On June 30, 2021, the Company engaged Marcum LLP (“Marcum”) as its successor independent auditor. This change was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors.
The reports of H&W on the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 and for the period January 10, 2019 (inception) through December 31, 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, except that such reports contained an explanatory paragraph that stated that the Company had experienced losses and negative cash flows from operations, and had limited capital resources and an accumulated deficit, which conditions raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
In connection with the audits of the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 and for the period January 10, 2019 (inception) through December 31, 2019, and in the subsequent interim period, there were (i) no disagreements within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K between the Company and H&W on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope and procedure that, if not resolved to the satisfaction of H&W, would have caused it to make reference to the matter thereof in connection with its report for such year or period and (ii) no “reportable events” within the meaning of Item 304(a)(i)(v) of Regulation S-K except for the material weakness described in Item 9A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Prior to engaging Marcum, the Company had not consulted Marcum regarding the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements or a reportable event, nor did the Company consult with Marcum regarding any disagreements with its prior auditor on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of the prior auditor, would have caused the prior auditor to make a reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its reports.
The Company provided H&W with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission and requested that H&W furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with above statements and, if it does not agree, the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of the letter, dated June 28, 2021, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 (which is incorporated by reference herein) to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
