Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 16 Feb 2014

Last week, Ernst & Young was involved in 80% of the Big 4 audit switches. This week, they outdid themselves and got involved in 100% of the changes.  Medical device giant Intuitive Surgical put their audit out to bid. Ernst & Young, in turn, took themselves out of the equation by declining to stand for reappointment.

Here’s the full list:

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
2/11/2014 Tripadvisor, Inc. MA Ernst & Young LLP KPMG LLP Dismissal
2/13/2014 Delta Apparel, Inc. SC Ernst & Young LLP KPMG LLP Dismissal
2/14/2014 Neogen Corporation MI Ernst & Young LLP BDO USA LLP Dismissal
2/14/2014 Intuitive Surgical, Inc. CA Ernst & Young LLP Decline To Stand
2/14/2014 Tesco Corporation TX Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Ernst & Young LLP Dismissal

Round and round and round…
