Ratification the appointment of Marcum Bernstein & Pinchuk LLP ("Marcum BP") as the independent auditors of the Company for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016.
While the appointment of Marcum BP had previously been recommended by the Company's audit committee and board of directors, the Company and Marcum BP were unable to agree on certain commercial terms of the engagement after further discussion between the parties. The appointment was therefore rejected by the Company's shareholders. The Company's audit committee will direct the appointment of a different independent auditing firm as soon as practicable.
