Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.


As previously reported in the Current Report on Form 8-K, dated May 3, 2016 (the “Form 8-K”), InterCloud Systems, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) dismissed Grant Thornton LLP (“Grant Thornton”) as the Company’s principal independent accountants, effective as of such date. The dismissal of Grant Thornton was approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.


In accordance with Item 304(a)(3), the Company provided Grant Thornton with a copy of the disclosure in the Form 8-K and requested that Grant Thornton furnish it with a letter addressed to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements contained therein, and if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. A copy of Grant Thornton’s letter, dated May 12, 2016 (the “Letter”), is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K/A and incorporated herein by reference.


In the Letter, Grant Thornton disagreed with the Company’s statement in the Form 8-K that “None of the reportable events set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K occurred during the period in which Grant Thornton LLP served as the Company’s principal independent accounts.” Grant Thornton believes there were two such reportable events pursuant to Regulation S-K, Item 304(a)(1)(v)(A) and Item 304(a)(1)(v)(C), as follows:


(1) Item 304(a)(1)(v)(A). The identification of material weaknesses in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as described in Item 4 of the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2015; and


(2) Item 304(a)(1)(v)(C). The identification of certain errors in the Company’s accounting that, if further investigated, may materially impact the fairness or reliability of either previously issued financial statements or the financial statements issued or to be issued covering the fiscal period(s) subsequent to the date of the most recent financial statements covered by an audit report. Grant Thornton advised us that, at the time of its dismissal, Grant Thornton had not had an opportunity to investigate the impact of those errors further.


The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors has discussed the subject matter of each of the foregoing events with Grant Thornton and has authorized Grant Thornton to respond fully to the inquiries of the Company’s successor auditor WithumSmith+Brown, PC.
