Item 4.01. Changes in Registrants Certifying Accountant.
(a) On March 14, 2012, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the Audit Committee) of Mac-Gray Corporation (the Company) dismissed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) as the Companys independent registered public accounting firm. PwC was notified on March 15, 2012.
The audit reports of PwC on the consolidated financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries as of and for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and through March 14, 2012, there were (i) no disagreements between the Company and PwC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreement, if not resolved to the satisfaction of PwC, would have caused PwC to make reference thereto in their reports on the consolidated financial statements for such years, and (ii) no reportable events as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
The Company provided PwC with a copy of this Form 8-K and requested that PwC furnish it with a letter addressed to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A copy of such letter, dated March 20, 2012, is filed as Exhibit 16 to this Form 8-K.
(b) On March 14, 2012, following a competitive selection process, the Audit Committee approved the selection of McGladrey and Pullen LLP (McGladrey) to serve as the Companys independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and through March 14, 2012, the Company has not consulted with McGladrey regarding either (i) the application of accounting principles to any specified transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Companys consolidated financial statements, and neither a written report was provided to the Company or oral advice was provided that McGladrey 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 to Item 304 of Regulation S-K), or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
