Form 8-K for PINGTAN MARINE ENTERPRISE LTD.


16-Apr-2013

Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant


Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant

Pingtan Marine Enterprise Ltd. (formerly China Growth Equity Investment Ltd.) (the "Company") previously engaged Crowe Horwath LLP ("Crowe") as its independent auditor for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012. Crowe has served as the independent auditor for the Company since January 18, 2010.

On February 25, 2013, the Company merged with China Dredging Group Co., Ltd. ("CDGC") and acquired Merchant Supreme Co., Ltd. (the "Business Combination"). The Company's audit committee authorized the dismissal of Crowe as its independent registered public accounting firm. The dismissal became effective on April 15, 2013. The dismissal was due to the change in control of the Company resulting from the Business Combination.

Crowe's audit reports on the China Growth Equity Investment Ltd. financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.

During the Company's fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, and through April 15, 2013, there have been (i) no disagreements with Crowe on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure which, if not resolved to Crowe's satisfaction, would have caused them to make reference to the subject matter in connection with their report on the Company's financial statements for such years, and (ii) there were no reportable events, as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

On April 14, 2013 the board of directors of the Company authorized the engagement of UHY Vocation HK CPA Limited ("UHY") as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm effective on April 15, 2013. During the Company's fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and through the date of this Form 8-K, the Company did not consult UHY with respect to 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 consolidated financial statements. UHY did not provide any written report or oral advice to the Company that UHY concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issues, or any other matters or reportable events listed in Items 304(a)(2)(i) and (ii) of Regulation S-K.

The Company provided Crowe with a copy of the disclosures made in this report before this report was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company requested that Crowe send a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements that are related to Crowe, and, upon receipt, will file a copy of such letter as an exhibit to an amendment to this Form 8-K.
