Item 4.01. Changes in Registrants Certifying Accountant
 
On December 15, 2021, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) approved the engagement of BF Borgers CPA, PC (“BF Borgers”) as the independent registered public accounting firm for its fiscal year ending December 31, 2021. The engagement was effective on December 16, 2021, the date on which the Company transmitted the executed engagement letter to BF Borgers. Accordingly, SingerLewak LLP (“SingerLewak”), who had served as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm since 2011, was dismissed as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm as of December 15, 2021 by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.
 
During the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and for the subsequent interim period through the date of filing this Current Report on Form 8-K, there were no: (i) disagreements (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) with SingerLewak on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosures or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements if not resolved to SingerLewak’s satisfaction would have caused SingerLewak to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report or (ii) reportable events as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K under the Exchange Act.
 
During the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and for the subsequent interim period through the date of filing this Current Report on Form 8-K, neither the Company nor anyone on behalf of the Company consulted with BF Borgers 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 financial statements, or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement as described in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K or a reportable event within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
 
SingerLewak’s audit report on the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.
 
The Company provided SingerLewak with a copy of the disclosures the Company is making in this Current Report on Form 8-K prior to its filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and requested that SingerLewak furnish a letter to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the statements made by the Company in response to Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K. A copy of that letter, dated December 21, 2021, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
