On October 21, 2023, Party City Holdco Inc. (the “Company”) appointed a new accounting firm to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm commencing with the audit of the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) of the Company previously approved the engagement of BDO USA, P.C. (“BDO”) on July 20, 2023 as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2022. The engagement of BDO became effective on October 21, 2023 following the execution of the Company’s engagement letter with BDO.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 and the subsequent interim period from January 1, 2023 through October September 30, 2023, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted with BDO regarding either: (a) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, and no written report or oral advice was provided to the Company that BDO concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (b) any matter that was either the subject of a “disagreement” or a “reportable event”, as such terms are defined in Items 304(a)(1)(iv) and (v), respectively, of Regulation S-K and the related instructions.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
