2.8. Change of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
On December 15, 2015, KPMG LLP replaced Deloitte & Touche LLP as the Trust’s independent registered public accounting firm to audit and report on the financial statements included in the Trust’s Form 10-K and the Trust’s 10-Qs. The predecessor independent registered public accounting firm’s reports on the Trust’s financial statements for each of the years ending December 31, 2014 and 2013 contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. During the fiscal periods and through December 15, 2015, there were no disagreements between the Trust and the predecessor independent registered public accounting firm on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which such disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of the predecessor independent registered public accounting firm, would have caused them to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with their reports on the financial statements for such periods.
