TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Distinct Infrastructure Group Inc. ("DIG" or the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a change of the Company's auditors. At the request of the Company, MNP LLP (the "Former Auditor") has resigned as auditor of the Company effective September 19, 2016 and effective the same date Ernst & Young LLP (the "Successor Auditor") has been appointed as the successor auditor.
In accordance with National Instrument 51-102 ("NI-51-102"), the Company has filed a Change of Auditor Notice (the "Notice") on SEDAR together with letters from both the Former Auditor and the Successor Auditor, with each letter confirming that it is in agreement with the statements contained in the Notice, as applicable.
There were no disagreements or unresolved issues with the Former Auditor on any matter of audit scope or procedures, accounting principles or policies, or financial statement disclosure. It is the Company's opinion that there have been no "reportable events" (as defined in National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligation) between the Company and the Former Auditor.
"We would like thank MNP LLP for their expertise and guidance, and we are pleased that a company with the scale, expertise and reputation of Ernst & Young will be part of the DIG team in the next stage of our growth," said Joe Lanni, DIG's Co-CEO.
In preparation for this mandate, Ernst and Young LLP undertook a full review of DIG's business to gain an understanding of the Company's operations, its client relationships, financial processes and year-to-date financial statements.
"Ernst & Young's commitment to understanding DIG and how we operate has been impressive," said William Nurnberger, DIG's Interim CFO. "We look forward to working with them as our auditors."
