ITEM 4.01. CHANGES IN REGISTRANT’S CERTIFYING ACCOUNTANT.
(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On January 31, 2019, Marcum LLP was dismissed as the independent registered public accounting firm of Vegalab, Inc. (the “Company”). The Company’s Board of Directors approved the dismissal of Marcum.
Marcum LLP did not issue an audit report on the financial statements of the Company as of any date or for any period. During the time Marcum LLP served as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm there were no disagreements with Marcum LLP 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 Marcum LLP, would have caused Marcum LLP to make reference in connection with its opinion (had it issued one) to the subject matter of the disagreement.
The Company provided Marcum with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested Marcum to furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not Marcum agrees with the disclosures. A copy of Marcum’s letter is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
(b) New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On February 1, 2019, the Company’s Board of Directors, acting in the capacity of an audit committee, engaged Rosenberg Rich Baker Berman, P.A. as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm to act as the principal accountant to audit the Company’s financial statements. During the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and 30, 2016, and through January 31, 2019, neither the Company, nor anyone acting on its behalf, consulted with Rosenberg Rich Baker Berman, P.A. regarding the application of accounting principles to a specific completed or proposed transaction or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided that Rosenberg Rich Baker Berman, P.A. concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any such accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue.
