Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 27 Jul 2014

Very slow week. Multi-Color let go of KPMG last week. This week, they decided to switch to Grant Thornton. And, with the Rothstein Kass acquisition by KPMG, Jason industries decided to make a switch to PwC. If you want to read the SEC filings, just click on the hyper-linked company name.

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
7/21/2014 Multi-Color Corporation OH KPMG LLP Grant Thornton LLP Dismissal
7/24/2014 Jason Industries, Inc. WI Rothstein Kass & Company, P.C. Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Dismissal

That’s all the Big4 auditor switch news I could dig up. There’s a bit more going on at our sister site, The Auditor Carousel. Check it out.

UPDATE 08/04/2014: A sharp eyed reader alerted us to an auditor change that we missed. China based NQ Mobile let go of PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian LLP when the audit firm wanted to expand the scope of work after a special committee independent investigation into electronic data collected by the company. NQ then engaged Marcum Bernstein Pinchuk LLP and has, “full confidence in their ability to conduct their work independently, diligently, and expeditiously.” You can read the full press release here.

Round and round and round…
