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


Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

(a) and (b) As previously disclosed in the Original 8-K, on April 7, 2014, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company nominated PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PWC") for appointment to serve as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014. Such appointment was subject to the Company's dismissal of Grant Thornton LLP ("Grant Thornton"), the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, which dismissal was conditioned, and was to be effective upon, (i) receipt of the required consent of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission ("ASIC") to Grant Thornton Audit Pty Ltd's resignation as the Australian statutory auditor of the Company, which resignation was submitted to the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company on April 7, 2014 and (ii) the approval of the shareholders of the Company of PWC's appointment at the Company's Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on May 21, 2014.

On May 21, 2014, Grant Thornton's dismissal became effective following shareholder approval of PWC's appointment at the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders held on such date and the Company's prior receipt of the required ASIC consent. As a result, also on May 21, 2014, the Company's engagement of PWC became effective.

The reports of Grant Thornton on the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 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. In addition, during the fiscal years ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, and in the subsequent interim period through May 21, 2014, there were (i) no disagreements between the Company and Grant Thornton 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 Grant Thornton, would have caused Grant Thornton to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in their reports on the financial statements for such years, and (ii) no "reportable events" as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The Company provided Grant Thornton with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Form 8-K/A prior to its filing with the SEC. The Company requested that Grant Thornton furnish a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the statements made herein. A copy of Grant Thornton's letter, dated May 21, 2014, is attached as Exhibit 16.1 hereto.

During the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, and the subsequent interim period through May 21, 2014, the Company has not consulted with PWC, 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 consolidated financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company that PWC 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 thereto, or a reportable event as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.



Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

16.1 Letter of Grant Thornton LLP, dated May 21, 2014
