On July 29, 2017, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Western Capital Resources, Inc. accepted the resignation of KLJ & Associates, LLP (“KLJ”) as the company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective as of such date.

During the company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2015 and 2016, and the subsequent interim period through the date of resignation (July 29, 2017), there were no “disagreements,” as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K, with KLJ on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of KLJ, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its report. None of the “reportable events” set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K occurred during the period in which KLJ served as the company’s principal independent accountants.

In accordance with Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, the company provided KLJ with a copy of this disclosure and requested that KLJ furnish it with a letter addressed to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether KLJ agrees with the above statements, and if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree.
