REPORT ON FORM 8-K
FlexShopper, Inc. (the “Company”)
June 28, 2022
Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
(a) The Audit Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of the Company recently conducted a competitive selection process to determine the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. The Committee invited several public accounting firms to participate in this process. As a result of this process, on June 28, 2022, the Committee approved the appointment of Grant Thornton LLP (“Grant Thornton”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. This action dismissed EisnerAmper (“EisnerAmper”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm as of June 28, 2022.
The reports of EisnerAmper on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. In connection with the audits of the Company's consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, and in the subsequent interim period through June 28, 2022, there were no disagreements with EisnerAmper on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope and procedures which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of EisnerAmper, would have caused EisnerAmper to make reference to the matter in their report. There were no reportable events (as that term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K) during the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, or in the subsequent period through June 28, 2022.
The Company has provided a copy of the foregoing disclosures to EisnerAmper and requested that EisnerAmper furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether EisnerAmper agrees with the above statements. A copy of EisnerAmper’s letter, dated June 28, 2022, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.
(b) During the two most recent fiscal years and in the subsequent interim period through June 28, 2022, the Company has not consulted with Grant Thornton with respect to the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that would have been rendered on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, or any other matters set forth in Item 304(a)(2)(i) or (ii) of Regulation S-K or (iii) or any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement” (within the meaning of Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K) or a “reportable event’ (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
