Item 4.01.Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Accounting Firm
On April 23, 2020, Salberg & Company, P.A. (“Salberg”) disengaged as the independent registered public accounting firm of FaceBank Group, Inc. (the “Company”). On March 31, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the appointment of Salberg as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm. On April 6, 2020, the Company entered into an engagement agreement with Salberg effective immediately. Subsequent to such appointment, Salberg did not issue any reports on the Company’s financial statements.
Because Salberg has not issued any reports on the Company’s financial statements, no Salberg report for the past two years contained an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and or was qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. Furthermore, during the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and through April 23, 2020, there have been no disagreements with Salberg on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to Salberg’s satisfaction, would have caused Salberg to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with reports on the Company’s financial statements for such periods.
The Company provided Salberg with a copy of the disclosure contained herein, prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), and requested that Salberg furnish the Company a letter addressed to the Commission stating whether or not it agreed with the statements herein and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. Salberg’s letter to the Commission is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1.
(b) Engagement of New Independent Registered Accounting Firm
Also on April 23, 2020, the Company’s Board of Directors approved the appointment of L J Soldinger Associates, LLC (“Soldinger”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm. On April 23, 2020, the Company entered into an engagement agreement with Soldinger effective immediately. During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the subsequent interim period through April 23, 2020, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf consulted with Soldinger regarding any of the matters described in Items 304(a)(2)(i) and (ii) of Regulation S-K.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
