the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 contained no adverse
opinion or disclaimer of opinion and was not qualified or
modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
For related disclosure relating to the fiscal year ended December

2016, there were no disagreements (as described in Item
304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) with GHP 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 GHP, would have caused it
to make reference in connection with its opinion to the subject
matter of the disagreement.From October 29, 2015 and subsequently
through December 30, 2016, there was one reportable event within
the meaning of Item304(a)(1)(v)of Regulation S-K, relating to

Companys Form 10-K filed March 30, 2016, the following control
deficiency was identified that represents a material weakness as
of December 31, 2015; inadequate segregation of duties due to a
limited number of employees among whom duties can be allocated.
The lack of segregation of duties is due to the limited resources
of the Company. For related disclosure relating to the fiscal
year ended December 31, 2014, and the subsequent period through
October 26, 2015, refer to the Sadler Gibb 8-K.
In accordance with Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, we furnished
