Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

  

(b) Engagement of Certifying Accountant

 

As previously disclosed, Health Discovery Corporation (“HDC” or the “Company”) has developed a plan with our accountants and attorneys to update our financial statements and bring our financial filings current. As a result, on December 17, 2019, HDC approved the engagement of Frazier & Deeter, LLC (“Frazier & Deeter”), to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the 2019 fiscal year. Furthermore, effective January 15, 2020 (the “Engagement Date”), the Company engaged Frazier & Deeter as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and formally engaged Frazier & Deeter as the Company’s independent public accountant on the Engagement Date.

 

Frazier & Deeter was previously engaged as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm from December 22, 2014 until January 23, 2018. Due to Frazier & Deeter’s knowledge of the Company since 2014 and in order to complete the outstanding financial filings in the most economical method possible, the Company decided to utilize Frazier & Deeter to assist with the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Annual Reports and corresponding audit.

 

During the years ended December 31, 2016, December 31, 2017 and December 31, 2018, and during the subsequent interim period through the date of approval of the engagement, the Company did not consult with Frazier & Deeter regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, (ii) the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements by Frazier & Deeter, in either case where written or oral advice provided by Frazier & Deeter would be an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issues or (iii) any other matter that was the subject of a disagreement between us and our former auditor or was a reportable event (as described in Items 304(a)(1)(iv) or Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K, respectively).

  

Item 8.01 Other Events.

 

As previously disclosed, the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) decided to hold the annual meeting of shareholders on May 27, 2020 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Company further disclosed that due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, the Company may need to modify the meeting location due to safety concerns. At this time the Company does not intend to change the date or place of the meeting. Please be advised that due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, the Company may need to modify the meeting format due to safety concerns. This may include the addition of a virtual meeting functionality in which participants may join via teleconference or a similar method. The Company will announce any alternative methods to join the annual meeting of shareholders as soon as they become available.
