Item 4.01   Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

 
(a)
Prior Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm.

Effective October 21, 2011, the Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Board of Directors of SMG Indium Resources Ltd. (the “Company”) approved the replacement of Marcum LLP (“Marcum”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, which took effect October 21, 2011. Marcum’s reports on the Company’s financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles except the Company’s audited financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 contained a modification raising substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern due to the Company’s ability to complete its initial public offering to raise additional funds and extend the life of the Company’s existence to perpetuity.

During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, and any subsequent interim period preceding Marcum’s replacement and through the date of this Current Report, there were:

(i) no “disagreements” (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) between the Company and Marcum on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Marcum, would have caused Marcum to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in its reports on the consolidated financial statements of the Company for such fiscal year; and

(ii) no “reportable events” (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

The Company provided Marcum with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested Marcum to furnish us with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A copy of Marcum’s letter dated October 25, 2011 is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

 
(b)
  New independent registered public accounting firm.

Effective October 21, 2011, the Audit Committee approved the engagement of KPMG LLP, 150 John F. Kennedy Parkway, Short Hills, New Jersey 07078 (“KPMG”), as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2011.

During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period preceding KPMG’s engagement, neither the Company nor anyone on behalf of the Company consulted KPMG regarding either:

(i) The application of accounting principles to specified transactions, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company that KPMG 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 the subject of a “disagreement” or “reportable event” (as such terms are defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) or (v) of Regulation S-K, respectively).
