Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.  

(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accountant

 

On November 21, 2018, Cuentas, Inc.’s (the “Company”) and Marcum LLP’s (“Marcum”) auditor client relationship was terminated.  

 

During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the subsequent interim period through November 28, 2018 (the “Term”), Marcum did not issue any report on any financial statements of the Company that contained an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, or was qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. Furthermore, during the Term: (i) there were no disagreements between the Company and Marcum on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure, which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Marcum would have caused Marcum to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with a report by it on the Company’s consolidated financial statements; and (ii) there were no “reportable events” as defined in paragraph (a)(1)(v) of Item 304 of Regulation S-K.

 

On November 27, 2018, the Company provided Marcum with a copy of the disclosures it is making above in response to Item 4.01 in this Current Report on Form 8-K, and requested that Marcum furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) stating whether it agreed with those disclosures. A copy of the resulting letter from Marcum, dated November 27, 2018, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

 

(b) Newly Appointed Independent Registered Public Accountant

On November 28, 2018, the Audit Committee of the board of directors (the “Board”) of the Company approved the appointment of Halperin Ilanit, CPA (“Halperin”) to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018. The effective date of Halperin’s appointment as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018, is November 28, 2018. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016, and the subsequent interim period through November 28, 2018, neither the Company, nor anyone acting on the Company’s behalf, has consulted with Halperin 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 on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, in any case where either a written report or oral advice was provided to the Company by Halperin that Halperin concluded 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 either the subject of a “disagreement” (within the meaning of 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).

 

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
