Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

Story continues below

Effective May 25, 2018, Moody, Famiglietti & Andronico, LLP (“MFA”) was dismissed as the independent certified public accounting firm of Technical Communications Corporation (the “Company”). The audit committee of the Company’s Board of Directors participated in and approved the decision to change independent registered public accounting firms.

The reports of MFA on the Company’s financial statements for each of the past two fiscal years did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles, except that the report for the year ended September 30, 2017 was modified to report an uncertainty that raised substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

In connection with the audits of the Company’s financial statements for each of its two most recent fiscal years and through May 24, 2018, there have been no disagreements between the Company and MFA on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope and procedures which disagreement, if not resolved to the satisfaction of MFA, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of such disagreement in connection with its reports on the financial statements for such periods.

During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and through May 24, 2018, there have been no reportable events (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K) with MFA.

The Company provided MFA with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Report on Form 8-K and requested that MFA furnish it with a letter addressed to the Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A copy of such letter from MFA is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

Effective May 25, 2018, the Company retained CohnReznick, LLP (“CohnReznick”) to act as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm. In accordance with Item 304(a)(2) of Regulation S-K, the Company did not consult CohnReznick 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; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event (each as defined in Item 304(a)(1) of Regulation S-K).

Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
