Item 4.01

Changes in Registrants Certifying Accountant.

 

AvePoint, Inc. (the "Company") has dismissed Crowe LLP (“Crowe”) as its independent registered public accounting firm, effective as of August 19, 2021. As described in Item 4.01(a) below, the change in independent registered public accounting firm is not the result of any disagreement with Crowe.

 

(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

On August 19, 2021 (the "Dismissal Date"), the Audit Committee (the "Audit Committee") of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the dismissal of Crowe as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. Crowe had previously been appointed as the independent registered public accounting firm for the Company's predecessor operating company, AvePoint Operations, Inc. ("Legacy AvePoint"), prior to the successful completion of Legacy's AvePoint's business combination (the "Business Combination") with Apex Technology Acquisition Corporation on July 1, 2021 (the "Merger Effective Date"). Upon completion of the Business Combination on the Merger Effective Date (the "Merger Effective Time"), the Audit Committee appointed Crowe to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021.

 

The reports of Crowe on Legacy AvePoint's consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 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 the audits of Legacy AvePoint's consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 and during (A) Legacy AvePoint's two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period through the Merger Effective Date and ending just prior to the Merger Effective Time (during which periods Crowe served as Legacy AvePoint's independent registered public accounting firm) and (B) the subsequent interim period from the Merger Effective Time through the Dismissal Date (during which Crowe served as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm), there were no “disagreements” with Crowe 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 Crowe would have caused Crowe to make reference thereto in its reports on the consolidated financial statement for such period. During the aforementioned periods, there have been no “reportable events” (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) and Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K), other than the material weaknesses in internal controls identified by management related to (i) the completeness and accuracy of financial accounting, reporting and disclosures, (ii) the identification, review and accounting for nonroutine transactions and/or events and (iii) segregation of duties with respect to the processing of financial transactions, as the foregoing were previously disclosed in the Company's Registration Statement on Form S-4 as originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 4, 2021.

 

The Company provided Crowe with a copy of the disclosure it is making herein in response to Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K, and requested Crowe furnish the Company with a copy of its letter addressed to the SEC, pursuant to Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, stating whether or not Crowe agrees with the statements related to them made by the Company in this report. A copy of Crowe’s letter dated August 24, 2021 is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this report.

 

(b) Newly Engaged Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

On August 19, 2021, the Audit Committee approved the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm as of and for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021. Prior to engaging Deloitte, during the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 and through the Dismissal Date, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted Deloitte regarding either (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered with respect to the consolidated financial statements of the Company, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company by Deloitte that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a "disagreement" (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a “reportable event” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
