Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant
On August 1, 2015, the practice of Cross, Fernandez & Riley, LLP ("CFR") , which was engaged as the independent registered public accounting firm of Dais Analytic Corporation (the "Company") was combined with BDO USA, LLP ("BDO") and the professional staff and partners of CFR joined BDO either as employees or partners of BDO. As a result of this transaction, CFR resigned as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm on August 1, 2015. On August 1, 2015, following the resignation of CFR, the Company, through and with the approval of its Board of Directors, appointed BDO as its independent registered public accounting firm.
Prior to appointing BDO, the Company did not consult with BDO regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specific completed or contemplated transaction or regarding the type of audit opinions that might be rendered by BDO on the Company's financial statements, and BDO did not provide any written or oral advice that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any such accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as that term is described in Item 304 (a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K), or a reportable event (as that term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
The report of independent registered public accounting firm of CFR regarding the Company's financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except that the report for the year ended December 31, 2013 contained a going concern explanatory paragraph. During the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, and during the interim period from the end of the most recently completed fiscal year through August 1, 2015, the date of resignation, (i) there were no disagreements with CFR on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of CFR, would have caused it to make reference to such disagreement in its reports; and (ii) there were no reportable events as described in paragraph (a)(1)(v) of Item 304 of Regulation S-K.
The Company provided CFR with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K (the "Report") prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and requested that CFR furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with above statements and, if it does not agree, the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of the letter has been filed as an exhibit to this Report.
