Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 02/24/13

Big 4 audit firms continue to trade clients amongst themselves. This week, no 2nd tier CPA firms wormed their way in. E&Y picked up 2 clients from Deloitte.  PwC grabbed one from KPMG.

SciClone announced they’d be restating periods dating back to 2011. Just a few days earlier, E&Y let them know they wouldn’t be standing for reappointment.  To be clear, E&Y is going to finish the 2012 audit.  In these situations, it’s best to wrap everything up before walking away. Who knows what another firm would find if brought in to clean up an already messy situation.
