CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mace Security International, Inc. (“the Company”) today announced the appointment of Skoda Minotti CPAs (“Skoda”) to serve as Mace’s independent certified public accountants for the year ending December 31, 2014, replacing Grant Thornton, LLP (“GT”).
In selecting a new auditor, the Company conducted a competitive bid process and solicited requests from four accounting firms, including GT, that the Company believed were appropriate, given the size and complexity of the Company. As a result, on August 29, 2014, the Board of Directors (“Board”), based on the evaluation of capabilities and cost, approved the selection of Skoda as the Company’s independent certified public accounting firm as the most cost effective solution to Mace Security International’s current auditing requirements.
GT’s audit reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for each of the two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. There were no disagreements between the Company and GT on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure.
