Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 08/11/13

August continues to be a slow month when it comes to companies making changes involving Big4 audit firms.  West Marine conducted a competitive bid process, and stepped up from Grant Thornton to PwC.  Nevada Gold & Casinos also went from a smaller firm to the Big4, engaging EY. Interestingly, Nevada Gold owns and operates casinos not in Nevada, but in Washington and South Dakota.

Here it is in table format, with links to the 8-K filings:

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
8/7/2013 Nevada Gold & Casinos, Inc. NV Pannell Kerr Forster Ernst & Young LLP Dismissal
8/9/2013 West Marine, Inc.  CA Grant Thornton LLP PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP Dismissal

A big congratulations to everyone who got a 10-Q on file this week. Tell your manager Big4 Auditor Carousel said you should take some time off.  And when you get back from vacation, you can rest assured that all the latest Big4 changes will be right here on the Big4 Auditor Carousel.

Round and round and round…
