Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
(a) On March 25, 2013, following the recommendation of its Audit Committee, Tamir Biotechnology, Inc. (the “Company”), dismissed CohnReznick LLP (f/k/a J.H. Cohn LLP) (“CohnReznick”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
The audit report of CohnReznick on the financial statements of the Company as of July 31, 2010 and 2009 and for the years then ended, which are the most recent fiscal years for which the Company has audited financial statements, did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor was such report qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except that such report included an explanatory paragraph relating to our ability to continue as a going concern.
During the years ended July 31, 2010 and 2009, and through the date of their dismissal, there were no disagreements between the Company and CohnReznick as to any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of CohnReznick, would have caused CohnReznick to make reference in their reports on the financial statements for such years to the subject matter of the disagreement.
CohnReznick has been provided with a copy of the disclosure under this Item 4.01(a) and has been requested to furnish a letter stating whether or not it agrees with the foregoing statements. Such letter is attached as an Exhibit to this Form 8-K.
(b) On March 25, 2013, following the recommendation of its Audit Committee, the Company engaged Goldman Kurland and Mohidin, LLP (“GKM”), as its independent accountants to audit the Company's financial statements for its fiscal years ended July 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013. In the Company's two most recent fiscal years and subsequent interim periods prior to such engagement, the Company has not (itself or through someone acting on its behalf) consulted with GKM on 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 that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K, or a reportable event, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
