Item 4.01Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On April 27, 2020, Manufacturing Housing Properties Inc. (the “Company”) dismissed its independent registered public accounting firm, Liggett & Webb, P.A. (“Liggett”). The dismissal of Liggett was approved by the audit committee of the board of directors of the Company.
The audit reports of Liggett on the financial statements of the Company for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 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, except that Liggett’s report dated April 1, 2019 on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 included an explanatory paragraph indicating that there was substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 and the subsequent interim period through April 27, 2020, there were no (i) disagreements with Liggett on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures which, if not resolved to Liggett’s satisfaction, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports, or (ii) “reportable events” as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
The Company provided Liggett with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested it to furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether Liggett agrees with the statements made by the Company in the foregoing disclosures. A copy of the letter has been filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this report.
Engagement of New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On April 27, 2020, the Company engaged Friedman LLP (“Friedman”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2020, which was approved by the audit committee of the board of directors of the Company.
During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 and the subsequent interim period through April 27, 2020, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf has consulted with Friedman regarding either (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that Friedman concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement” or a “reportable event,” as such terms are defined in Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(1)(iv) and (v), respectively.
