Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

 

Appointment of new independent registered public accounting firm

 

On May 24, 2005, the Audit Committee approved the engagement of Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte & Touche”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2006, effective upon the final completion of Deloitte & Touche’s customary client acceptance procedures and execution of an engagement letter. During the two most recent fiscal years and through May 24, 2005, the Company did not consult with Deloitte & Touche regarding 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, or any other matters or events set forth in Item 304(a)(2)(ii) of Regulation S-K.

 

Resignation of independent registered public accounting firm

 

As stated in the Company’s Proxy and Notice of Annual Meeting of Shareholders filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 25, 2005, the Company announced it had not yet selected the Company’s independent accountant for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2006 and would commence a process to review available alternatives. On May 3, 2005, the Company issued a request for proposal to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. On May 20, 2005, KPMG LLP (“KPMG”) informed the Company that it resigned as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

 

The audit reports of KPMG on the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended January 31, 2005 and 2004, as well as the audit report of KPMG on management’s assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of January 31, 2005 and the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of January 31, 2005, did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.

 

In connection with its audits for each of the two most recent fiscal years and through May 20, 2005, the Company had no disagreements with KPMG on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of KPMG, would have caused KPMG to make reference thereto in its report on the financial statements for such years.


During the two most recent fiscal years and through May 20, 2005, there have been no “reportable events” (as described in Regulation S-K Item 304(a)(1)(v)).

 

In response to the Company’s request, KPMG has furnished the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A copy of such letter, dated May 26, 2005, is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1.
