Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

 

On January 1, 2021, the audit practice of Hall & Company Certified Public Accountants and Consultants, Inc. (“Hall”), an independent registered public accounting firm, was combined with Macias Gini & O’Connell (“MGO”) in a transaction pursuant to which Hall combined its operations with MGO, and certain members of Hall joined MGO either as employees or partners of MGO. On February 3, 2021, Hall resigned as auditors of IGEN Networks Corp. (the “Company”), and with the approval of the Company’s Board of Directors, MGO was engaged as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

 

Prior to engaging MGO, the Company did not consult with MGO regarding the application of accounting principles to a specific completed or proposed transaction or regarding the type of audit opinions that might be rendered by MGO on the Company’s financial statements, and MGO did not provide any written or oral advice that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any such accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue.

 

The Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm of Hall regarding the Company’s financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 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 years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, and during the interim period from the end of the most recently completed year through February 3, 2021, the date of resignation, there were no disagreements with Hall 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 Hall, would have caused Hall to make reference to such disagreement in its report.

 

The Company provided Hall with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K prior to its filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and requested that Hall furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with the above statements and, if it does not agree, the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of the letter, dated February 3, 2021, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 (which is incorporated by reference herein) to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
