Item 4.01 Change in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

 

On November 29, 2021, Rasna Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) dismissed Marcum LLP (“Marcum”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. On November 29, 2021, the Company appointed Mazars USA LLP (“Mazars”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm effective as of November 29, 2021.

 

The Audit Committee of the board of directors of the Company approved the dismissal of Marcum and the appointment of Mazars.

 

The reports of Marcum on the Company’s financial statements for each of fiscal years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principle.

 

During the fiscal years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, and the subsequent interim period through November 29, 2021, there were no disagreements (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and related instructions) between the Company and Marcum 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 Marcum would have caused Marcum to make reference thereto in their reports on the financial statements for such years. The Company disclosed in its Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020 and in subsequent 10-Q interim period filings, that its internal control over financial reporting was not due to a lack of accounting resources and an ineffective control environment.

 

The Company provided Marcum with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Current Report on Form 8-K and requested that Marcum furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements contained herein. A copy of Marcum’s letter, dated November 30, 2021 is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

 

During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020 and the period from October 1, 2020 through November 29, 2021, neither the Company, nor anyone acting on its behalf, consulted with Mazars regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that may be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, and Mazars did not provide either a written report or oral advice to the Company that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
