Item 4.01 Changes in Registrants Certifying Accountant.
The following exhibit is attached as part of this report:
On January 9, 2019, the board of directors of Gala Pharmaceutical, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the selection of RBSM LLP (“RBSM”) as its independent registered public accounting firm replacing Haynie & Company.
(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On January 9, 2019, the Company’s board of directors approved the dismissal of Haynie & Company as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and the Company accordingly notified Haynie & Company of such action effective as of that date.
The report of Haynie & Company on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as of November 30, 2017 and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the year ended November 30, did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, other than the statements related to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
During the fiscal year ended November 30, 2017 and through the dismissal date, there were no “disagreements” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and related instructions) between the Company and Haynie & Company with respect to any matter relating to accounting principles, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Haynie & Company, would have caused Haynie & Company to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in its reports on the Company’s financial statements with respect to such periods.
The Company provided Haynie & Company with a copy of this Form 8-K and requested that Haynie & Company furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not Haynie & Company agrees with the above statements. A copy of such letter, dated January 11, 2019, is attached as Exhibit 16.1.
(b) Engagement of New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On January 9, 2019, the Company engaged RBSM as its new independent registered public accounting firm. During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and in the subsequent interim period through the dismissal date, the Company has not consulted with RBSM 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 consolidated financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that RBSM 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 either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
