Item 4.01 Change in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

 

On August 13, 2018, Spotlight Innovation, Inc. (the “Company”) accepted the resignation of GBH CPAs, PC (“GBH”) and engaged Marcum LLP (“Marcum”) as its independent registered public accountants. This change occurred in connection with GBH, the Company’s prior independent public accountants, resigning as a result of GBH combining its practice with Marcum effective July 1, 2018. The engagement of Marcum has been approved by the Company's Board of Directors.

 

Pursuant to applicable rules, the Company makes the following additional disclosures:

 

(a) GBH’s reports on the consolidated financial statements of the Company as at and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except that such reports contained explanatory paragraphs in respect to uncertainty as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

(b) During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 and through August 13, 2018, there were no disagreements with GBH on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which if not resolved to GBH's satisfaction would have caused it to make reference thereto in connection with its reports on the financial statements for such years. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 and through August 13, 2018, there were no events of the type described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

 

(c) During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 and through August 13, 2018, the Company did not consult with Marcum with respect to any matter whatsoever including without limitation with respect to any of (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; (ii) the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial statements; or (iii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) or an event of the type described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

 

The Company has provided GBH with a copy of the foregoing disclosure and requested that it furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements made therein. A copy of such letter, dated August 16, 2018, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Report.
