Change in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

 

On March 9, 2020, the audit committee of Globant S.A. (the “Company”) dismissed Deloitte & Co. S.A. (“Deloitte”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and recommended that the Company’s shareholders vote in favor of a proposal at the annual general meeting of shareholders of the Company to appoint Price Waterhouse & Co. S.R.L. (“PwC”) as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the financial year ending December 31, 2020 and for a term to expire on the date of the annual general meeting of shareholders of the Company to be held in 2021. Accordingly, if elected by shareholders, PwC will become the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.

 

During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 and in the subsequent interim period through March 9, 2020, there were (i) no “disagreements” (as described under Item 16F(a)(1)(iv) of Form 20-F) between the Company and Deloitte on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Deloitte, would have caused Deloitte to make reference to the subject matter of such disagreements in its reports on the financial statements for such years, and (ii) no “reportable events” (as defined under Item 16F(a)(1)(v) of Form 20-F).

 

Deloitte’s audit report on the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 and for each of the years ended December 31, 2019, 2018 and 2017 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and was not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles. The audit reports of Deloitte on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2019 and 2018 did not contain an adverse opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

 

The Company provided Deloitte with a copy of this Form 6-K prior to its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) and requested that Deloitte furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the above statements. A copy of Deloitte’s letter, dated March 10, 2020, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 6-K.

 

During each of the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 and the subsequent interim period through March 9, 2020, neither the Company nor anyone on behalf of the Company has consulted with PwC 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 consolidated financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that PwC concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issues, (ii) any matter that was the subject of disagreement, or (iii) any reportable events.
