Big4 Auditor Changes week ending 05 Jun 2016

Who would have guessed that another name for Kesselman & Kesselman is PwC Israel? Got that nugget from the Xura filing.

I like the efficiency of Affinion Group and Affinion Group Holdings, knocking out an auditor change with just one filing. Often, each company in a group of related companies will file a separate 8-K.

Here’s the list of auditor changes last week:

Filing Date Company Location Old Auditor New Auditor Dismissal / Resignation
6/2/2016 MaxLinear, Inc. CA Ernst & Young LLP Grant Thornton LLP Dismissal
6/2/2016 Affinion Group Holdings, Inc.
Affinion Group, Inc.
CT Deloitte & Touche LLP Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Dismissal
6/3/2016 Xura, Inc. MA Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Kesselman & Kesselman (PwC Israel) Dismissal
6/3/2016 Bruker Corporation MA Ernst & Young LLP Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP Dismissal
