Capital Realty Investors-III Limited Partnership (the “Company”) was informed by Reznick Group, P.C. (“Reznick Group”), the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, that it has entered into a business combination with J. H. Cohn, LLP (J. H. Cohn). In connection with the business combination J.H. Cohn legally changed its name to CohnReznick LLP (“CohnReznick”) and continues to be registered with the PCAOB. On November 8, 2012, Reznick Group resigned as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. The Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors has appointed CohnReznick as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm effective November 8, 2012.
Reznick Group’s reports on the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and through the subsequent interim period November 8, 2012 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
During the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the subsequent interim period through November 8, 2012, there were (i) no disagreements (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) between the Company and Reznick Group on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Reznick Group would have caused Reznick Group to make reference thereto in its reports on the Company’s financial statements for such years, and (ii) no “reportable events” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
During the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the subsequent interim period through November 8, 2012, neither the Company, nor anyone on its behalf, consulted CohnReznick regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered with respect to the financial statements of the Company, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company by CohnReznick that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a “reportable event” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
The Company provided Reznick Group with a copy of this Form 8-K and requested that Reznick Group provide the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not Reznick Group agrees with the above disclosures. A copy of the Reznick Group’s letter, dated November 8, 2012, is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.
