The reports of MNP LLP on the Companys financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended August 31, 2016 and 2015 contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principle except to indicate that there was substantial doubt about the Companys ability to continue as a going concern.
The Companys board of directors and audit committee participated in and approved the decision to change independent registered public accounting firms.
