SECURITY NATIONAL FINANCIAL CORPORATION (NASDAQ:SNFCA) Files An 8-K Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

On June 1, 2017, Security National Financial Corporation (the Company”) engaged the independent registered public accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche LLP (Deloitte & Touche”) to audit and report on the Company’s financial statements for fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The Company appointed Deloitte & Touche to replace Eide Bailly LLP (“Eide Bailly”), the Company’s former independent registered public accounting firm that had resigned on May 15, 2017. The decision to appoint Deloitte & Touche as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm was recommended by the Company’s Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors and approved by the Board of Directors.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 and the subsequent interim period preceding the resignation by Eide Bailly, there were no disagreements (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K, as promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission) with Eide Bailly on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, or any reportable events (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K), which disagreement, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Eide Bailly, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report. In addition, the reports by Eide Bailly on the Company’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2016, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the years in the period ended December 31, 2016, did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
to Item 304 of Regulation S-K, the Company submitted a copy of this Form 8-K to Deloitte & Touche prior to filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
