Item 4.01Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant  

 

Marizyme, Inc. (the “Company”) has dismissed KR Margetson, Ltd., CPA (the “Former Accounting Firm”) as its independent registered public accounting firm, effective as of September 15, 2020. As described in Item 4.01(a) below, the change in independent registered public accounting firm is not the result of any disagreement with the Former Accounting Firm.

 

Item 4.01(a)Previous Independent Accountants  

 

(i) On September 15, 2020, the Company dismissed the Former Accounting Firm as its independent registered public accounting firm effective on that date.

 

(ii) The Former Accounting Firm of the Company's financial statements has not issued an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and was not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles up to and including September 15, 2020.

 

(iii) The reports of the Former Accounting Firm on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2019 contained an explanatory paragraph which noted that there was substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern as the Company has incurred net losses since inception and existing uncertain conditions which the Company faces relative to its obtaining capital in the equity markets.

 

(v) The Company’s Board made the decision to change independent accountants, acting under authority delegated to it, and approved the change of the independent accountants at a Board of Director’s meeting on September 15, 2020.

 

(iv) During the period through September 15, 2020, there (i) have been no disagreements with the Former Accounting Firm on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of the Former Accounting Firm, would have caused the Former Accounting Firm to make reference to the subject matter of such disagreements in its reports on the financial statements for such years and (ii) were no reportable events of the kind in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

 

The Company has requested that the Former Accounting Firm furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statement. A copy of the letter from the Former Accounting Firm is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

 

Item 4.01(b)New Independent Accountants  

 

On September 15, 2020, the Company engaged WithumSmith+Brown, PC (the “New Accounting Firm”) as our independent registered public accounting firm for the year ended December 31, 2020. The Board made the decision to engage the New Accounting Firm acting under authority delegated to it and the Board of Directors approved the same on September 15, 2020.

 

The Company has not consulted with the New Accounting Firm during our two most recent fiscal years or during any subsequent interim period prior to its appointment as New Accounting Firm regarding 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 our financial statements, and neither a written report was provided to us nor oral advice was provided that the New Accounting Firm concluded 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 disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event (within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
