Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.


Effective September 1, 2022, Friedman LLP (“Friedman”), which served as the independent registered public accounting firm of LifeMD, Inc. (the “Company”) since 2020, combined with Marcum LLP (“Marcum”). Following the combination, Friedman continued to operate as an independent registered public accounting firm and wholly-owned subsidiary of Marcum.


On September 8, 2022, effective immediately, the Audit Committee of the Company approved the dismissal of Friedman and the engagement of Marcum to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.


Friedman’s reports regarding the Company’s financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.


During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and the interim period from the end of the most recently completed year through September 8, 2022, the date of Friedman’s resignation, there were no disagreements with Friedman on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Friedman, would have caused Friedman to make reference to such disagreement in its report.


The Company provided Friedman with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested that Friedman furnish a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A copy of Friedman’s letter furnished pursuant to that request is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
