On December 2, 2020, we were dismissed. We have read the Company’s statements included under Item 4.01 of its Form 8-K dated December 8, 2020, and we agree with such statements, except that we are not in a position to agree or disagree with the Company’s statement that the Audit Committee of the Board approved the engagement of Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, or with any of the Company’s statements in the fourth paragraph of this Item that Deloitte was not consulted regarding any of the matters or events set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) and 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
