GUANGZHOU, China, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sino Agro Food, Inc. (OTC BB: SIAF.OB), an emerging integrated, diversified agriculture technology and organic food company ("the Company") with principal operations located throughout the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), announces that on June 19th it appointed Anthony Kam and Associates, Ltd. ("AKA") as its new independent registered public accounting firm.
Ted Madsen, the remaining principal of the Company's prior independent registered accounting firm, Madsen & Associates CPAs, is retiring, and the firm is winding down all its audit engagements. The Company expresses its appreciation and well wishes to Ted, after his six years of diligent audits.
AKA is a well-established international audit and accounting firm headquartered in Hong Kong, with the capability to issue audit reports in U.S. GAAP, IFRS, and China accounting standards. It is registered with the PCAOB and is also a registered auditor in Hong Kong. AKA has five affiliated certified public accounting firms with principal places of business in Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Zhuhai in China, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. Over 190 professional and staff members manage and operate the Hong Kong and China accounting firms.
Given Sino Agro Food, Inc.'s plans to seek debt financing to complete the business developments under its five year plan, and to expand its market presence in Hong Kong, the Company feels it advantageous to engage the services of a qualified Hong Kong audit firm; one that is duly registered with the PCAOB, and well staffed to meet SEC reporting requirements in a timely manner.
