|The reports of E&Y on the Partnership’s financial statements for each of the fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 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.|
|During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 and during the period from December 31, 2019 through the date of this Form 8-K, Altegris has had no disagreements with E&Y 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 E&Y, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter thereof in connection with its report on the financial statements of the Partnership for such periods. There were no reportable events (as defined in paragraphs (A) through (D) of Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(1)(v)) during the fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 or during the period from December 31, 2019 through the date of this Form 8-K.|
|Altegris, on behalf of the Partnership, requested that E&Y furnish it a letter addressed to the Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements. A copy of that letter dated April 29, 2020, is filed as an Exhibit hereto.|
On April 24, 2020, Altegris, with the approval of its principals, engaged Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte”) to serve as the independent registered public accounting firm of the Partnership effective as of the fiscal period starting January 1, 2020. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 and during the interim period from December 31, 2019 through the date of the engagement of Deloitte, Altegris has not consulted Deloitte on behalf of the Partnership with respect to any of the matters described in Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(2)(i) or (ii).
