The reports of Sadler Gibb on our Company’s financial statements for each of the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2015, and December 31, 2014, did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, other than the statements related to our Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.
In addition, during the fiscal years ended December 31, 2015, and December 31, 2014, as well as during the subsequent interim period preceding October 3, 2016, there were no “disagreements” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and related instructions) between our Company and Sadler Gibb with respect to any matter relating to accounting principles, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Sadler Gibb, would have caused Sadler Gibb to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in its reports on our Company’s financial statements with respect to such periods.
Furthermore, no reportable events occurred within the periods covered by Sadler Gibb’s reports on our Company’s financial statements, or subsequently up to the date of Sadler Gibb’s dismissal. As used herein, the term “reportable event” means any of the items listed in paragraphs (a)(1)(v)(A)-(D) of Item 304 of Regulation S-K.
