|Item 4.01||Change in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant|
On February 7, 2018, Longfin Corp. (the “Company” or “Longfin”) engaged CohnReznick LLP (“CohnReznick”), as its principal accountant, and on the same date dismissed AJSH & Co. LLP (“AJSH”). The change was approved by the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors.
As of the date hereof, the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 has not yet been completed; however, the Company expects such audit to be completed as part of CohnReznick’s engagement.
During the period from February 1, 2017 to February 28, 2017, which was audited by AJSH, and the year ended December 31, 2017 when AJSH was still the auditor of record and performing auditing procedures, (i) there were no disagreements with AJSH on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to AJSH’s satisfaction, would have caused AJSH to make reference in connection with its opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement, and (ii) there were no “reportable events,” as that term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K. The report of AJSH on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the period ended February 28, 2017 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of an opinion, and was not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and in the subsequent interim period prior to February 7, 2018, the Company did not consult with CohnReznick regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specific completed or contemplated transaction, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and no written or oral advice was provided by CohnReznick that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement or event, as set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) or Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
Attached as Exhibit 16.1 is a copy of AJSH’s letter addressed to the SEC relating to the statements made by the Company in this Current Report on Form 8-K.
|Item 9.01||Financial Statements and Exhibits|
|16.1||Letter of AJSH & Co. LLP to the SEC dated February 7, 2018|
