(a) Dismissal of independent registered public accounting firm.
On June 13, 2017, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of PetroShare Corp. (the “Company”) dismissed SingerLewak LLP (“SingerLewak”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
The audit reports of SingerLewak on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
During the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, and the subsequent interim period through June 13, 2017, there were (i) no disagreements between the Company and SingerLewak on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements if not resolved to SingerLewak’s satisfaction would have caused SingerLewak to make reference in connection with its opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement, and (ii) no “reportable events” within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
The Company provided SingerLewak with a copy of the foregoing disclosure and requested SingerLewak to furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements made herein. A copy of the letter furnished by SingerLewak, dated June 16, 2017, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
(b) Engagement of new independent registered public accounting firm.
On June 13, 2017, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the engagement of Eide Bailly LLP (“Eide Bailly”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm to replace SingerLewak.
During the two most recent years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, and the subsequent interim period through June 13, 2017, the Company has not consulted with Eide Bailly regarding either (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 no written or oral advice was provided by Eide Bailly to the Company that Eide Bailly considered 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 subject of a disagreement, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K, or reportable event of the types described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
