FORTRESS BIOTECH, INC. : Changes made to the holder’s certifying accountant, financial statements and supporting documents (form 8-K)



Article 4.01. Changes in the holder’s certifying accountant.

At September 20, 2021, Forteresse Biotech, Inc. (the “Company”) informed BDO United States, srl (“BDO”) that the Company would reject BDO as a registered public accounting firm independent of the Company. The Company’s audit committee and board of directors participated in and approved this decision. The audit committee intends to engage a nationally recognized accounting firm after the completion of its extensive selection process.

BDO’s Reports on the Consolidated Financial Statements of the Company for the Years Ended December 31, 2019 and 2020, did not contain an adverse opinion or exclusion of opinion, nor were these reports qualified or modified as to the uncertainty, the scope of the audit or the accounting principles.

During the Company’s completed financial years December 31, 2019 and 2020, and through
September 20, 2021, the Company has had no disagreement with BDO on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or audit scope or procedure, which disagreements, had they not been resolved at the time of satisfaction of BDO, would have led it to refer to the object of the disagreements relating to its reports on the consolidated accounts for these periods.

During the Company’s completed financial years December 31, 2019 and 2020, and through
September 20, 2021, no “reportable event” as defined in Article 304 (a) (1) (v) of the SK Regulation has occurred.

BDO has indicated to the Company that it agrees with the foregoing statements contained in the second, third and fourth paragraphs above with respect to BDO and has sent a letter to Security and Trade Commission for this purpose. A copy of BDO’s letter is attached to this Form 8-K as Exhibit 16.1.
