Facedrive Provides Details on Change of Auditor Process
TORONTO, Oct. 6, 2021 /CNW/ - Facedrive Inc. ("Facedrive" or the "Company") (TSXV: FD) (OTCQX: FDVRF) today filed on SEDAR its change of auditor reporting package pursuant to section 4.11 of National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations ("NI 51-102"). The reporting package provides information about the resignation of Deloitte LLP ("Deloitte") as the auditor of the Company.
As described in the reporting package, the Company confirms that:
As Deloitte did not complete their interim review procedures in entirety, Deloitte was unable to conclude whether any material modifications were needed to be made to the Q2 2021 Interim Financial Statements. In Deloitte's opinion, the following were the two unresolved issues from an accounting perspective prior to termination of the Interim Review Engagement, which remained unresolved at the time of Deloitte's resignation as the Company's auditors.
