Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

 

 (1)   Previous Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
     
  (i) On August 4, 2017, Ecosciences, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “ Company ”) dismissed its independent registered public accounting firm, Friedman LLP (“ Friedman ”).
     
  (ii) The report of Friedman on the financial statements of the Company the fiscal year ended May 31, 2016 and 2015, and the related statements of operations, comprehensive loss, changes in stockholders’ deficiency, and cash flows for the fiscal years ended May 31, 2016 and 2015 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. However, the audit reports as of and for the years ended May 31, 2016 and 2015 did reflect uncertainties regarding the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.
     
  (iii) The decision to change the independent registered public accounting firm was recommended and approved by the Board of Directors of the Company.
     
  (iv) During the Company’s most recent fiscal year ended May 31, 2017 and through the date of dismissal, (a) there were no disagreements with Friedman 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 Friedman, would have caused it to make reference thereto in its reports on the financial statements for such years and (b) there were no “reportable events” as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
     
  (v) The Company has provided Friedman with a copy of this Current Report and has requested that it furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the above statements. A copy of such letter is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
     
(2) New Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
     
  On August 4, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed GBH CPAs, PC (“ GBH ”) as its new independent registered public accounting firm to audit and review the Company’s financial statements for the year ended May 31, 2017. During the two most recent fiscal years ended May 31, 2017 and 2017 and any subsequent interim periods through the date hereof prior to the engagement of GBH, neither the Company, nor someone on its behalf, has consulted GBH regarding:
     
  (i) either: 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 either a written report was provided to the Company or oral advice was provided that the new independent registered public accounting firm 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 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.
