Item 4.01
Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
 
On January 3, 2013, Cleantech Solutions International, Inc. (the “Company”) was informed by its independent registered public accounting firm, Sherb & Co., LLP, ("Sherb"), that it has combined its practice with RBSM LLP (the "Merger") effective January 1, 2013.  RBSM LLP is a member of Russell Bedford International (RBI). As a result, Sherb effectively resigned as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm and RBSM LLP became the Company's independent registered public accounting firm.  The engagement of RBSM LLP as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm was approved by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company on January 28, 2013.
 
The principal accountant's reports of Sherb on the financial statements of the Company as of and for the two years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to audit scope or accounting principles.  
 
During the two years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 and through the date of this 8-K, there were no disagreements with Sherb on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which if not resolved to Sherb's satisfaction would have caused it to make reference thereto in connection with its reports on the financial statements for such years. During the two years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 and through the date of this 8-K, there were no reportable events of the type described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
 
During the two years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 and through the date of this 8-K, the Company did not consult with RBSM LLP 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 provided Sherb with a copy of the foregoing disclosure and requested Sherb to 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 January 24, 2013, furnished by Sherb, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
