Item 4.01. Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
The Audit Committee (the “Audit Committee”) of the Board of Directors of Custom Truck One Source, Inc. (formerly Nesco Holdings, Inc.) (the “Company”) on April 1, 2021, approved the engagement of Ernst & Young LLP (“EY”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2021 and the dismissal of Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte & Touche”), each effective immediately.
Deloitte & Touche’s reports on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, which were included in the Company’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the subsequent interim period through March 31, 2021, there were: (i) no disagreements within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K between the Company and Deloitte & Touche on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which, if not resolved to Deloitte & Touche’s satisfaction, would have caused Deloitte & Touche to make reference thereto in its reports; and (ii) no “reportable events” within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
The Company provided Deloitte & Touche with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested that Deloitte & Touche furnish a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether or not it agrees with the foregoing disclosures. A copy of Deloitte & Touche’s letter, dated April 6, 2021, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 hereto.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, and the subsequent interim period through March 31, 2021, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf has consulted with EY regarding: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specific transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that EY concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue; (ii) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K; or (iii) any “reportable event” within the meaning of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
