XIAMEN, China, Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Hat Interactive Entertainment Technology (“Blue Hat” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BHAT), a producer, developer and operator of augmented reality interactive entertainment games, toys and educational materials in China, today announced the dismissal of Friedman LLP (“Friedman”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and the appointment of JLKZ CPA LLP (“JLKZ”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective as of the same date. JLKZ replaces Friedman, which previously was the independent registered public accounting firm for the Company. The appointment of JLKZ has been approved by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company and the Board of Directors of the Company.

 

The reports of Friedman on the consolidated financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries for the past two years did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. The decision to change auditors was not the result of any disagreement between the Company and Friedman on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure.

 

The Company would like to express its sincere gratitude to Friedman for its services rendered to the Company.
