During the fiscal years ended December31, 2016 and 2017 and the subsequent interim period through April11, 2018, there were no “reportable events,” within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The Company has provided BDO with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K and requested that it provide the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) indicating whether or not BDO agrees with the disclosures contained herein and, if not, the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of BDO’s letter, dated April12, 2018, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

During the fiscal years ended December31, 2016 and 2017 and the subsequent interim period through April11, 2018, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted with Deloitte regarding any matter or event that would require disclosure under Item 304(a)(2) of Regulation S-K.
