During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, and during the interim period from the end of the most recently completed fiscal year through the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf consulted BKD, LLP regarding (i) either 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 Companys financial statements, or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) with Trokey P.C. on accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures, which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Trokey P.C., would have caused Trokey P.C. to make reference to the matter in their report, or a reportable event (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
