Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
On May 13, 2015, the Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. 401(k) Investment Plan (the “Plan”) dismissed RubinBrown LLP (“RubinBrown”) as the independent registered accountant of the Plan.
RubinBrown’s reports on the Plan’s financial statements for each of the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, nor were such reports qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principle.
The decision to dismiss RubinBrown was approved by the Plan.
During the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the subsequent interim period through May 13, 2015, there were no disagreements between the Plan and RubinBrown regarding any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to RubinBrown’s satisfaction, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports on the financial statements of the Plan for such years.
None of the reportable events described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K occurred during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 or during the subsequent interim period through May 13, 2015.
The Plan has provided RubinBrown with a copy of the statements made in this Current Report on Form 8-K and has requested that RubinBrown furnish the Plan with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether RubinBrown agrees with the statements made in this Current Report on Form 8-K and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of the letter provided by RubinBrown in response to this request is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
