ITEM 4.01 Changes in Registrants Certifying Accountant
(a) Previous independent accountant
On January 9, 2009, Issuer Direct Corporation (the Company) notified De Joya Griffith & Company, LLC. (De Joya) that effective January 9, 2009 the Company has decided to dismiss DeJoya as the Companys independent registered public accounting firm. The decision to dismiss DeJoya was made and approved by the Companys Board of Directors.
The audit reports of De Joya on the Companys financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2007 and 2006 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to audit scope, or accounting principles. However, the De Joya reports for these fiscal years ended contained a going concern qualification. This qualification expressed substantial doubt about the Companys ability to continue as a going concern based on significant recurring operating losses. During the two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period through January 9, 2008, the Company had no disagreements with De Joya on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreement, if not resolved to their satisfaction, would have caused De Joya to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports. In addition, during that time there were no reportable events (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
The Company has provided De Joya with a copy of the disclosures required by Item 304(a) contained in this Report on Form 8-K and has requested that DeJoya furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether DeJoya agrees with the statements made by the registrant in this Form 8-K and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of De Joyas letter dated January 12, 2009 is filed as Exhibit 16.1to this Form 8-K.
(b) New independent accountant
Effective as of January 9, 2008, the Company engaged GBH CPAs, PC. (GBH) as its new independent registered public accounting firm. The decision to engage GBH was made and approved by the Companys Board of Directors.
During the two most recent fiscal years and through January 9, 2009, the Company has not consulted with GBH 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 Companys financial statements; or (ii) any matter that was either subject of a disagreement (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) or a reportable event (as that term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On January 8, 2009, James Learish announced his resignation as President of Issuer Direct Corporation (the Company), effective as of January 9, 2009. Mr. Learish will continue to serve as a member of Board of Directors of the Company.
