Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
On November 1, 2019, the partners and professional staff of Peterson Sullivan LLP (“PS”), which was engaged as the independent registered public accounting firm of the registrant, Mymetics Corporation (the "Company"), joined BDO USA, LLP ("BDO"). As a result of this transaction, PS resigned as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm on January 7, 2020. On January 7, 2020, following the resignation of PS, the Company, through and with the approval of its Audit Committee, appointed BDO as its independent registered public accounting firm.
PS’s reports on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, contained an explanatory paragraph that raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Other than the going concern matter, the reports of PS on the financial statements of the Company for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
During the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, and through January 7, 2020, there were no disagreements between the Company and PS 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 PS, would have caused PS to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its audit reports on the Company’s financial statements. During the Company’s past fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the interim period through September 30, 2019, PS did not advise the Company of any of the matters specified in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
The Company provided PS with a copy of this report on Form 8-K in accordance with Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission and requested that PS furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements and, if it does not agree, the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of the letter from PS is filed as Exhibit 16.1 hereto.
During the Company’s two most recently completed fiscal years and through the date of engagement of BDO, neither the Company nor anyone on behalf of the Company consulted with BDO regarding (a) 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 as to which the Company received a written report or oral advice that was an important factor in reaching a decision on any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (b) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event as defined in Items 304(a)(1)(iv) and (v), respectively, of Regulation S-K.
