Item 4.01                      Change in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
In connection with the reorganization of Hartley Moore Accountancy Corporation (the “Former Auditor”), its audit partners have joined Hall and Company, Inc. (“Hall”). The Former Auditor resigned as the independent auditor of Innovus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the “Company”), effective February 15, 2016. The Former Auditor has been the Company’s auditor since January 6, 2016.
As a result of the above, the Board of Directors the Board of Directors of the Company, on February 18, 2016, approved the resignation of the Former Auditor effective on February 18, 2016, and the engagement of Hall as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 effective February 18, 2016.
The change in accountants did not result from any dissatisfaction with the quality of professional services rendered by the Former Auditor.
The Company has not consulted with Hall for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, and the interim period ending February 18, 2016 regarding the application of accounting principles to any contemplated or completed transactions nor the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, and neither written or oral advice was provided that would be an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to accounting, auditing or financial reporting issues. There were no matters that were either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in paragraph 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) or a reportable event (as described in paragraph 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
In connection with the audit of the fiscal years ended December 31,2015, and through February 15, 2016, there we no disagreements with the Former Auditor on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements if not resolved to their satisfaction would have caused them to make reference in connection with their opinion to the subject matter of the disagreement. The Former Auditor’s have not issued any reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
During the Company's two most recent completed fiscal years, and interim period through February 15, 2016, there were no "reportable events" as such term is described in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K with the Former Auditor.
The Company provided the Former Auditor with a copy of this Current Report on Form 8-K, and requested that the Former Auditor furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether the Former Auditor agrees with the disclosure contained in this report, or, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. The Company has received the requested letter from the Former Auditor, and a copy of their letter is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
