Dismissal of Previous Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On January 17, 2013, our Board of Directors of InterCloud Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the dismissal of Sherb & Co. (“Sherb”) as our independent auditor, effective immediately.
Sherb’s report on our financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and through Sherb’s dismissal on January 17, 2013, there were (1) no disagreements with Sherb on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Sherb, would have caused Sherb to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its reports, and (2) no events of the type listed in paragraphs (A) through (D) of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
We furnished Sherb with a copy of this disclosure on January 18, 2013, providing Sherb with the opportunity to furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with the statements made by us herein in response to Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K and, if not, stating the respect in which it does not agree. We have not received the requested letter from Sherb, and we will file such letter as an exhibit to an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K once such letter is received.
Engagement of New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
Concurrent with the decision to dismiss Sherb as our independent auditor, our Board of Directors appointed BDO USA, LLP (“BDO”) as our independent auditor.
During the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and through the date hereof, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf consulted BDO with respect to (i) 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, and neither a written report was provided to the Company or oral advice was provided that BDO concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement or reportable events set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) and (v), respectively, of Regulation S-K.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
