This excerpt taken from the AAPL DEF 14A filed Apr 16, 2007.
The Audit Committee has appointed KPMG LLP, the Companys independent registered public accounting firm, to audit the Companys consolidated financial statements for fiscal year 2007. KPMG LLP has served as the Companys independent registered public accounting firm since fiscal year 1997. At the Annual Meeting, the shareholders are being asked to ratify the appointment of KPMG LLP as the Companys independent registered public accounting firm for fiscal year 2007. In the event of a negative vote on such ratification, the Audit Committee will reconsider its selection. Even if this appointment is ratified, the Audit Committee, in its discretion, may direct the appointment of a different independent registered public accounting firm at any time during the year if the Audit Committee determines that such a change would be in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders. Representatives of KPMG LLP will be present at the Annual Meeting and will have the opportunity to respond to appropriate questions and to make a statement if they so desire.
