Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
WithumSmith+Brown, PC (“Withum”) served as the independent registered public accounting firm for ChaSerg Technology Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (“ChaSerg”), the legal predecessor of Grid Dynamics Holdings, Inc., the registrant (the “Company”), and its subsidiaries for the period from May 21, 2018 (inception) through the year ended December 31, 2019, and the subsequent interim period until March 13, 2020. On March 13, 2020, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the change in the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective March 13, 2020, to Grant Thornton LLP (“GT”). GT previously served as the independent registered public accounting firm for Grid Dynamics International, Inc., a privately-held California corporation, which was acquired by ChaSerg on March 5, 2020.
Withum’s report on ChaSerg’s financial statements as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and for the years then ended, did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were such reports qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except that such audit report contained an explanatory paragraph in which Withum expressed substantial doubt as to ChaSerg’s ability to continue as a going concern if it did not complete a business combination by April 9, 2020. During the period of Withum’s engagement by ChaSerg, and the subsequent interim period preceding Withum’s dismissal, there were no disagreements with Withum 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 Withum, would have caused it to make a reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports covering such periods. In addition, no “reportable events,” as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K, occurred within the period of Withum’s engagement and subsequent interim period preceding Withum’s dismissal.
During the period from May 21, 2018 (ChaSerg’s inception) through December 31, 2019 and the subsequent interim period preceding the engagement of GT, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted GT 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, and neither a written report was provided to the Company or oral advice was provided that GT concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) or a “reportable event” (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
The Company provided Withum with a copy of the disclosures made pursuant to this Item 4.01 prior to the filing of this Current Report on Form 8-K and requested that Withum furnish a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission, as required by Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1, stating whether it agrees with such disclosures, and if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree.
