Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

 

On November 22, 2021, Greenwave Technology Solutions, Inc., a Delaware corporation (f/k/a MassRoots, Inc.) (the “Company”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2021 (the “Q3 Form 10-Q”). This filing was consummated prior to the completion of pre-filing review by the Company’s independent public accountants in accordance with Article 10 of Regulation S-X. On December 2, 2021, the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) determined that the Q3 Form 10-Q should not be relied upon. The Board of Directors of the Company has discussed with its independent accountant, RBSM LLP, the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K in reaching the conclusion to restate the financial statements for the above noted period. Following this determination, the Company has been working with its independent registered public accountants to prepare an amendment to the Q3 Form 10-Q.

 

A copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K was also provided to our independent registered public accountants, prior to its filing with the SEC. All matters involved in this process were discussed with the entire team of auditors, and counsel as directed by the Board.
