Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 30 Mar 2014

One of the busiest weeks in recent memory for Big4 auditor switches. It seems that with 10-Ks on file, companies have some time now to reassess relationships with their auditors.

Even taking into account the first 5 companies on the list all appear to be related, it was still a really good week for KPMG. PwC managed to lose three clients, and didn’t pick up any new ones.

Here’s the full list:
