Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

a. Resignation of RBSM LLP as the Registrant’s Certifying Accountant .

 

On May 9, 2017 RBSM, LLP resigned as The Pulse Beverage Corporation’s (the “ Company”) Registered Public Accounting Firm, and the Company’s Board of Directors has accepted this resignation.

 

During the two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 and the subsequent interim period through May 9, 2017, there were no “disagreements” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) between RBSM and the Company on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to RBSM’s satisfaction, would have caused RBSM to make reference in connection with its opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement, nor were there any “reportable events” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K). There are no changes or discrepancies between Company and RBSM, and Company’s reporting remains consistent with the recently filed 10-K.

 

The audit reports of RBSM on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty or audit scope or accounting principles.

 

The Company provided RBSM with a copy of the foregoing disclosures prior to the filing of this Form 8-K and requested RBSM furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not RBSM agreed with the disclosure in this Item 4.01. A copy of this letter is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
