(TSX:WPT / Nasdaq: WPRT), engineering the world's most advanced natural gas engines and vehicles, announced today the appointment of KPMG LLP ("KPMG") as its auditors, replacing Deloitte LLP ("Deloitte"). Following the Audit Committee's recommendation, the Company's Board of Directors approved the appointment of KPMG and accepted the resignation of Deloitte. Deloitte resigned as auditors at the Company's request. The Company reports that there have been no reservations in the report of Deloitte for the audit of the most recently completed fiscal period and prior to the appointment of KPMG, there were no reportable events. A reportable event is an occurrence in the relationship between the reporting issuer and the former auditor which may have been a contributing factor in the change.
