EXPLANATORY NOTE

 

On November 1, 2021, Alfi, Inc. (the “Company”) filed a Current Report on Form 8-K (the “Original Report”) to report under Item 4.01 of Form 8-K, among other things, the resignation of Friedman LLP (“Friedman”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, effective as of October 29, 2021. The Original Report also disclosed additional matters under Item 4.01 with respect to Slack & Company CPAs, LLC, which disclosure is not being amended by this Amendment No. 1 to Current Report on Form 8-K/A (this “Amendment No. 1”), and under Items 5.02, 8.01 and 9.01.

 

This Amendment No. 1 is being filed by the Company solely to amend the Original Report to include certain disclosures required under Item 4.01 of Form 8-K relating to the resignation of Friedman and to provide as Exhibit 16.1 a copy of Friedman’s letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether it agrees with the statements made by the Company herein.

Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.

 

Friedman LLP

 

On October 29, 2021, Alfi, Inc. (the “Company”) was notified by email by Friedman LLP (“Friedman”) that the firm resigned as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. As discussed below, the Company engaged Friedman on October 18, 2021 and, accordingly, Friedman has not issued any report on the Company’s financial statements.

 

During the two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 and the subsequent interim period from January 1, 2021 through October 29, 2021: (i) there were no “disagreements” (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) with Friedman on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure; and (ii) there have been no “reportable events” (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

 

On October 18, 2021, the Company engaged Friedman to serve as its independent registered public accounting firm to audit the consolidated balance sheet of the Company as of December 31, 2021, and the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive income, stockholders’ equity, cash flows and related notes for the year then ended. The decision to engage Friedman as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm was approved by the Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”). During the two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and during the subsequent interim period from January 1, 2021 through the date of Friedman’s engagement, to the knowledge of the Company’s current management and the current members of the Audit Committee, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted Friedman regarding either: (i) 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 financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that Friedman concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement” (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) or a “reportable event” (as such term is defined in Item 304 (a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

 

The Company provided Friedman with a copy of the disclosure the Company is making herein in response to Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K prior to the filing thereof with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). A copy of Friedman’s letter to the SEC stating whether it agrees with the statements made in this Current Report is filed hereto as Exhibit 16.1.

 

 

 

 

Slack & Company CPAs, LLC

 

Prior to Friedman, Slack & Company CPAs, LLC (“Slack”) served as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and audited the Company’s consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the two years then ended, and the related notes. In August 2021, Slack notified the Company that it was resigning as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm after Slack completed the work necessary for the Company to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for quarter ended June 30, 2021, due to the Slack firm closing its business.

 

Slack’s report on the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2020 and 2019, did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and was not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except that such report contained an explanatory paragraph that stated that the Company had a loss from operations and an accumulated deficit and intends to fund operations through future financing, of which no assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in raising such capital, and which factors raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

During the two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 and the subsequent interim period from January 1, 2021 through the date of Slack’s resignation: (i) there were no “disagreements” (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) with Slack 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 Slack, would have caused Slack to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its report on the consolidated financial statements for such years; and (ii) there have been no “reportable events” (as such term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

 

The Company provided Slack with a copy of the disclosure it is making herein in response to Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K and requested that Slack furnish the Company with a copy of its letter addressed to the SEC, pursuant to Item 304(a)(3) of Regulation S-K, stating whether Slack agrees with the statements made by the Company in response to Item 304(a) of Regulation S-K and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree. As the Slack firm has closed, the Company does not expect to receive such letter from Slack.
