Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Accounting Firm
On November 9, 2017, the Board of Directors of Carolco Pictures, Inc. (the “Company”) terminated the engagement of Weinberg & Company, P.A. (“Weinberg”) as the Company’s independent registered accounting firm.
Weinberg’s reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. Furthermore, during the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and through November 9, 2017, there have been no disagreements with Weinberg on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to Weinberg’s satisfaction, would have caused Weinberg to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for such periods.
For the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 and through November 9, 2017, there were no “reportable events” as that term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K, except that Weinberg’s reports for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 included an explanatory paragraph indicating that there was substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
The Company provided Weinberg with a copy of the disclosure contained herein, prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), and requested that Weinberg furnish the Company a letter addressed to the Commission stating whether or not it agreed with the statements herein and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. Weinberg’s letter to the Commission is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1.
(b) Engagement of New Independent Registered Accounting Firm
On November 9, 2017, the Board of Directors appointed Fruci & Associates II, PLLC (“Fruci”) as the Company’s new independent registered accounting firm. During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and through November 9, 2017, neither the Company nor anyone acting on the Company’s behalf consulted Fruci with respect to any of the matters or reportable events set forth in Item 304(a)(2)(i) and (ii) of Regulation S-K.
