As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on January 23, 2012, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Multiband Corporation (Multiband) approved on behalf of Multiband and its subsidiaries the dismissal of their independent registered public accounting firm, Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (“Baker Tilly”), and the engagement of Ernst & Young, LLP (“EY”) to serve as their new independent registered public accounting firm for 2012. The Board of Directors of Multiband ratified the dismissal of Baker Tilly and the engagement of EY by the Audit Committee on January 17, 2012. The dismissal of Baker Tilly is effective on April 2, 2012. This change in auditors was made after a competitive bidding process and evaluation.
Baker Tilly’s reports on Multiband’s consolidated financial statements for each of the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
During the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 and the interim period between December 31, 2011 and the date of this Form 8-K/A, there were no disagreements between Multiband and Baker Tilly on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure which, if not resolved to Baker Tilly’s satisfaction, would have caused Baker Tilly to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report for such years; and there were no reportable events as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
Multiband has provided Baker Tilly with a copy of the foregoing disclosures. A copy of Baker Tilly’s letter, dated April 2, 2012, stating its agreement with the above statements is attached as Exhibit 16.1.
During the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 and through the date of this Form 8-K/A, neither Multiband nor anyone acting on their behalf consulted EY with respect to the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on Multiband’s consolidated financial statements, or any other matters or reportable events listed in Items 304(a)(1)(iv) and (v) of Regulation S-K.
