Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant


a) On May 1, 2019, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”) resigned as the independent registered public accounting firm of Argos Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”).


PwC’s report on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor was it qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles, except that PwC’s report for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017 included an explanatory paragraph indicating that there was substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. PwC did not audit the Company’s financial statements as of and for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018.


During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 and the subsequent interim period through May 1, 2019, there were (i) no “disagreements” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) between the Company and PwC 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 PwC, would have caused PwC to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in its reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements and (ii) no “reportable events” (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions).


The Company provided PwC with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K and requested that PwC furnish to the Company a letter addressed to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) stating whether or not PwC agrees with the above statements and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of PwC’s letter to the SEC, dated May 3, 2019, is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.


Exhibit No.   Description
16.1   Letter from PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP to the SEC, dated May 3, 2019, regarding the statements made in this Current Report on Form 8-K










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 hereunto duly authorized.
