Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 03/17/13

A few interestingly named companies on this week’s list; apparently one entertains eagles around the world, while another invests in fantastical creatures.  Captial Trust wins the award for blandest company name ever.  I’ll leave TriMas alone just because I’m too tired for a long-winded rant.

Overall it was a net +1 week for E&Y, while Deloitte broke even. KPMG had a -1 week, and there was no activity for PwC.

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation

Now that 10-K filing season is over, we’ll see what the coming weeks bring.  In the meantime, keep on riding the Big4 carousel.
