Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.


(a) On December 5, 2019, Friedman LLP resigned as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.


The audit report of Friedman LLP on the consolidated financial statements of the Company as of and for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019, did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and was not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles, except that the audit report included an explanatory paragraph that described factors that raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. During the Company's fiscal year ended March 31, 2019, and during the subsequent interim period through December 5, 2019, (i) there were no disagreements (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K) between the Company and Friedman LLP on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures that, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Friedman LLP, would have caused Friedman LLP to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report(s), and (ii) there were no reportable events (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).


The Company has provided Friedman LLP with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and requested that Friedman LLP furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether or not Friedman LLP agrees with the statements made above. A copy of the Friedman LLP letter, dated January 22, 2020, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.


(b) On January 22, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the appointment of Marcum LLP as its independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2020. During the Company's fiscal years ended March 31, 2018 and March 31, 2019 and the subsequent interim period through the date of this Form 8-K, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf consulted Marcum LLP regarding either (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that Marcum LLP concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K) or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
