On June 15, 2011, we dismissed Child, Van Wagoner & Bradshaw, PLLC as our independent accountant. The reports of Child, Van Wagoner & Bradshaw, PLLC on our financial statements for the fiscal 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 that the audit report of Child, Van Wagoner & Bradshaw, PLLC dated April 7, 2010, on our financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 contained a going concern paragraph. Our Board of Directors approved the dismissal on June 15, 2011. In connection with our audits for its two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, and for the period up to the date of dismissal, we have had no disagreements with Child, Van Wagoner & Bradshaw, PLLC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Child, Van Wagoner & Bradshaw, PLLC, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement(s) in connection with its report on our financial statements for such years. We have provided Child, Van Wagoner & Bradshaw, PLLC a copy of this report and requested that it furnish us with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements. A copy of the letter is included as an exhibit to this report.
We engaged DeCoria, Maichel & Teague, PS. (DMT) as our new independent accountants effective June 15, 2011. During our two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2010, and through the date of this report, neither we, nor anyone on our behalf, has consulted with DMT 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 our financial statements, and either a written report was provided to us or oral advice was provided that the new accountant concluded was an important factor considered by us in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in paragraph 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to this item) or a reportable event (as described in paragraph 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
