Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.
On August 28, 2015, the Board of Directors of CalAmp Corp. (the "Company") approved the dismissal of SingerLewak LLP ("Singer") as its independent registered accounting firm and the engagement of BDO USA, LLP ("BDO") as the Company's new independent registered public accounting firm for the Companys fiscal year ending February 29, 2016. The Board of Directors determined that this change was warranted as a result of the Companys significant growth since first engaging Singer in 2008. BDO was formally retained by the Company on August 28, 2015.
The audit reports of Singer on the Companys consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended February 28, 2015 and 2014, and the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of February 28, 2015 and 2014, did not contain any adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.
During the two fiscal years ended February 28, 2015 and 2014 and the subsequent interim period through August 28, 2015, there were no disagreements (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) with Singer 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 Singer, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its reports on the consolidated financial statements for such years. In addition, during the two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period through August 28, 2015, there were no reportable events described under Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
During the Companys two most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period through August 28, 2015, neither the Company, nor anyone on its behalf, consulted BDO regarding either: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specific transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Companys financial statements, or the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, where either a written report or oral advice was provided to the Company that BDO concluded was an important factor considered by the Company 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 Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
The Company provided Singer 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 Singer furnish a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether or not Singer agrees with the statements noted above. A copy of the responsive letter, dated August 28, 2015, from Singer is attached hereto as Exhibit 16.1.
