Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 28 Sep 2014

All the changes this week involved companies dropping Big4 auditors, and engaging smaller firms. This continues a recent trend, though generally it’s smaller companies making the switch. When the biggest companies start doing it, it’ll be real news.

Here’s this week’s list:

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
9/22/2014 Samson Oil & Gas Limited Australia Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Hein & Associates LLP Dismissal
9/23/2014 Liquid Holdings Group, Inc. NY KPMG LLP Grant Thornton LLP Dismissal
9/24/2014 Spark Networks, Inc. CA Ernst & Young LLP Grant Thornton LLP Dismissal
9/24/2014 Integrated Drilling Equipment Holdings Corp. TX Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Whitley Penn LLP Dismissal

Earlier in the week, a number of Texas A&M students started following the Carousel on Twitter.  I didn’t know what was going on until I saw a tweet from Professor Mike Shaub, who said he’d told his audit students about it. Thanks for the shout out, professor!

Round and round and round…
