ITEM 4.01 CHANGES IN REGISTRANT’S CERTIFYING ACCOUNTANT
Discovery Energy Corp. (the ‘ Company ”) has been advised that effective July 1, 2018 GBH CPAs, P.C. (“ GBH ”), the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, completed a merger transaction (the “ Merger ”) with Marcum LLP (“ Marcum ”). After the Merger, GBH continued in existence for some period of time to complete certain on-going work for some of its existing clients, including the Company. The Company believes that, upon the filing of its first quarter 2019 Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q with the Commission on July 20, 2018, GBH effectively resigned as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. As the surviving firm of the Merger, Marcum was subsequently engaged as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. The decision to retain Marcum as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm following the Merger has been approved by the Company’s Board of Directors, which functions as an audit committee.
The report of GBH on the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal years ended February 28, 2018 and February 28, 2017 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor was it qualified or modified as to audit scope or accounting principles. The report did include an explanatory paragraph about the uncertainty as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. During the period of GBH’s engagement as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm through July 20, 2018 (the “ Engagement Period ”), there were no disagreements as defined in Item 304 of Regulation S-K with GBH 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 GBH, would have caused it to make reference in connection with any opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement. Further, during the Engagement Period, there were no reportable events (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K). The Company has provided GBH with a copy of this Report prior to its filing with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “ SEC ”) and requested GBH to furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC, stating whether or not it agrees with the statements made above. A copy of the letter furnished by GBH in response to that request is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Report.
During our two most recent fiscal years and through July 20, 2018, neither us nor anyone on our behalf consulted Marcum regarding either (1) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction regarding us, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements; or (2) any matter regarding us that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K) or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K). The Company provided Marcum a copy of the disclosures in this Report prior to filing and offered an opportunity to provide a letter addressed to the SEC if desired. If Marcum provides such a letter, it will be filed subsequently as an exhibit to this Report.
