ITEM 4.01 CHANGES IN REGISTRANT'S CERTIFYING ACCOUNTANT
(a) On October 22, 2012, Preventia, Inc. (the Company) dismissed Gumbiner Savett, Inc. (Gumbiner), its current independent registered public accounting firm, due to management's belief that the newly appointed independent registered public accounting firm is better suited to provide the registrant's audit needs. Gumbiner audited the financial information for the Company for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.
The decision to dismiss its independent registered public accounting firm was approved by the Companys board of directors.
During the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2011 and through the date of dismissal , there were no disagreements on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope and procedure which if not resolved to the satisfaction of Gumbiner, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement(s) in connection with any report.
Gumbiners report on the financial statements for either of the past two years did not contain a disclaimer of opinion or was qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. A going concern note was issued for the Company for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2011.
(b) On October 22, 2012 , the Companys board of directors engaged Madsen & Associates, CPAs, Inc. (Madsen) as its independent registered public accounting firm for the year ended December 31, 2012. On October 22, 2012, Madsen informed the Company that they had completed their acceptance process. The Company did not consult with Madsen during the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 or any subsequent interim periods preceding the engagement of Madsen regarding the application of accounting principles to a specific completed or contemplated transaction, or the type of audit opinion Madsen might render on the Companys consolidated financial statements.
In accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company provided Gumbiner a copy of the disclosures made under this current report on Form 8-K, Item 4.01 and requested Gumbiner to furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not Gumbiner agrees with the above statements. Such letter is attached as Exhibit 16.1
