Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 02 Mar 2014

Another week gone by, and another half-dozen Big4 auditor changes. KPMG had a rough week, losing three clients, including Snyder’s-Lance, makers of those orange colored peanut butter crackers sold in vending machines.  I’ve never known anyone to actually buy them, but the crackers are ubiquitous.

The big winner this week was non-Big4 firm, BDO. They picked up three new clients, including 1-800-Flowers.com.

Here’s the full list:

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
2/25/2014 A-Mark Precious Metals, Inc. CA KPMG LLP BDO USA LLP Dismissal
2/25/2014 1-800-Flowers.com, Inc. NY Ernst & Young LLP BDO USA LLP Dismissal
2/26/2014 Spectrum Group International, Inc. CA KPMG LLP BDO USA LLP Dismissal

Round and round and round…
