Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 07/21/13

Just two auditor changes involving Big4 firms this week.  The win for Ernst & Young counts as half a win.  Spirit Realty Capital merged with Cole Credit Property Trust.  EY already audited Cole Credit, while Deloitte audited Spirit Realty.  The surviving company bears the Spirit name, and will carry on with Ernst & Young as the auditor. Alas, Deloitte gets left out.

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
7/16/2013 Astro-Med, Inc. RI Ernst & Young LLP Wolf & Company, P.C. Dismissal
7/17/2013 Spirit Realty Captial, Inc. AZ Deloitte & Touche LLP Ernst & Young LLP Dismissal

Everyone needs a summer vacation, and Auditor Carousel is no exception.  I’m headed to the Midwest tomorrow for some R&R. The weekly summary blog post will be delayed a couple days, but never fear, it will get done.

Thanks for stopping by. A much more rested and relaxed Big4 Auditor Carousel will be back in a week.
