Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 11/17/2013

Half a dozen auditor changes among the Big4 firms to report this week.  The Media General change is the result of a reverse merger involving a slew of companies (Media General, New Young Broadcasting, and three separate General Merger subs). Neophotonics, which is in the process of restating their financials, engaged Deloitte. Lastly, rug and carpet maker, The Dixie Group, opted to step away from the Big4, selecting Dixon Hughes Goodman.

Here’s the full list:

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
11/12/2013 Telik, Inc. CA Ernst & Young LLP Burr Pilger Mayer, Inc. Resignation
11/13/2013 Media General, Inc. VA Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Deloitte & Touche LLP Dismissal
11/14/2013 Neophotonics Corporation CA Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Deloitte & Touche LLP Resignation
11/15/2013 Packaging Corporation of America IL Ernst & Young LLP KPMG LLP Dismissal
11/15/2013 National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation VA Deloitte & Touche LLP KPMG LLP Dismissal
11/15/2013 The Dixie Group, Inc. TN Ernst & Young LLP Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP Dismissal

That’s all for this week. Hard to believe 2013 is winding down. We’ll see what next week brings right here on the Big4 Auditor Carousel.

Round and round and round…
