Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
On April 27, 2020, the board of directors of HST Global, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the engagement of Turner, Stone & Company (“Turner Stone”) as the company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the Company’s fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, effective immediately, and dismissed Sadler, Gibb & Associates, LLC (“Sadler Gibb”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm on April 23, 2020.
We did not consult with Turner Stone regarding either (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either contemplated or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a “disagreement” or a “reportable event” (as those terms are defined in Item 304 of Regulation S-K).
Sadler Gibb’s reports on our financial statements for the prior two fiscal years contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor was it qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles except to indicate that there is substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2019, and the subsequent interim period through April 23, 2020, there were (i) no disagreements (as such term is defined in Item 304 of Regulation S-K) between the Company and Sadler Gibb on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which, if not resolved to Sadler Gibb’s satisfaction, would have caused Sadler Gibb to make reference thereto in their reports on the financial statements for such years, and (ii) no “reportable events” within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K, except for a statement that the Company is not required to have, and Sadler Gibb was not engaged to audit, internal controls over financial reporting.
The Company provided Sadler Gibb with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Current Report on Form 8-K and requested that Sadler Gibb furnish a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the statements made herein. A copy of Sadler Gibb’s letter dated April 28, 2020, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 hereto.
