Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

 

(a) Dismissal of Previous Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

On June 21, 2022, the Audit Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Alta Equipment Group Inc. (the “Company”), approved the engagement of Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately, and dismissed UHY LLP (“UHY”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. UHY served as the auditors of the Company’s financial statements for the period from 2019 through the dismissal.

 

In connection with the audits of the Company's consolidated financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2021, and in the subsequent interim period through June 21, 2022, there were no disagreements with UHY on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope and procedures which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of UHY, would have caused UHY to make reference to the matter in their report. There were no reportable events (as that term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K) during the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2021, or in the subsequent interim period through June 21, 2022, except for the material weaknesses previously disclosed under Part II, Item 9A of the Company’s 2021 10-K Annual Report filed on March 31, 2022. The Audit Committee discussed the material weaknesses with UHY, and the Company authorized UHY to respond fully to inquiries of the successor accountant (described below) concerning the material weaknesses.

 

The Company has provided UHY with a copy of this Form 8-K and requested that UHY furnish it with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether UHY agrees with the above statements. A copy of UHY's letter, dated June 23, 2022, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

 

(b) Appointment of New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

On June 21, 2022, the Audit Committee approved the appointment of Deloitte as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2021, and the subsequent interim period through June 21, 2022, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf consulted with Deloitte regarding any of the matters described in Items 304(a)(2)(i) and (ii) of Regulation S-K.
