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


Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

(a) On August 19, 2013, the Company was advised by Ernst & Young LLP ("Ernst & Young"), the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, that it will decline to stand for re-appointment as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm and will resign after completion of the interim review of the Company's unaudited financial statements as of September 30, 2013 and for the three- and nine-month periods ending September 30, 2013 and 2012. Ernst & Young completed the interim review of our unaudited financial statements for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, on November 12, 2013 concurrent with the filing of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2013. Therefore, the effective date of the Ernst & Young declination was November 12, 2013.

The reports of Ernst &Young on the Company's financial statements for the past two fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.

In connection with the audits of the Company's financial statements for each of the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, and in the subsequent interim period through November 12, 2013, (i) there were no disagreements with Ernst &Young on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope and procedures which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Ernst &Young would have caused Ernst &Young 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.

The Company has requested Ernst & Young to furnish it a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether Ernst & Young agrees with the above statements. A copy of that letter, dated November 12, 2013, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this filing.

(b) The Company engaged Burr Pilger Mayer, Inc., or BPM, effective November 12, 2013, as its new independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. The decision to engage BPM as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm was previously approved by the Company's Audit Committee. During each of the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2011 and 2012 and through November 12, 2013, the date of BPM's engagement, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf has consulted with BPM 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 the Company's financial statements, and neither a written report was provided to the Company nor oral advice was provided by BPM that was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions to Item 304 of Regulation S-K, or a reportable event, as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
