Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant, Financial Statements and Exhib


Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

(a) Resignation of independent registered public accounting firm.

On June 1, 2013, Registrant was informed by its independent registered public accounting firm, Holtz Rubenstein Reminick LLP ("HRR") that it has combined its practice (the "Merger") with Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP ("Baker Tilly") effective as of June 1, 2013. As a result of the Merger, HRR effectively resigned as the Registrant's independent registered public accounting firm and Baker Tilly, as the successor to HRR following the Merger, became the Registrant's independent registered public accounting firm. The engagement of Baker Tilly was approved by the Audit Committee of the Registrant's Board of Directors on June 5, 2013.

The principal accountant's reports of HRR on the financial statements of the Registrant as of and for the years ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the years ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 and through the effective date of the Merger, there were no disagreements with HRR on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which if not resolved to HRR's satisfaction would have caused HRR to make reference thereto in connection with its reports on the financial statements for such years. During the years ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 and through June 1, 2013, there were no reportable events of the types described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The Registrant provided Baker Tilly (as successor by merger of HRR) with a copy of the foregoing disclosure and requested Baker Tilly to furnish the Registrant with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements made herein. A copy of the letter furnished by Baker Tilly, dated June 5, 2013, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

(b) Engagement of new independent registered public accounting firm.

On June 5, 2013 the Registrant's Audit Committee approved the engagement of Baker Tilly as the Registrant's independent registered public accounting firm, effective as of June 1, 2013.
