Change of Parent Company Auditor
Crowe Horwath Australasia is the fifth largest accountancy firm in Australia, and is known for delivering quality audit, tax and advisory services. With a network of more than 100 offices in Australia and New Zealand, Crowe Horwath Australasia employs approximately 3,000 professionals and staff, and has the diversity of skills and resources to provide comprehensive, integrated financial solutions to both individual and corporate operations, in industries large and small.
Crowe Horwath also has an extensive network of professionals providing services throughout the Company's operating territories in Asia, and already provides audit services for the Company's key operating subsidiaries, being Donaco Hong Kong Limited and DNA Star Vegas Co., Limited. Crowe Horwath has been the auditor for those entities since their inception.
Crowe Horwath also provided financial due diligence services for the Company's acquisition of the Star Vegas business, and audited three years of accounts for that business under its previous ownership, prior to the Company's acquisition of the business.
As the key operating subsidiaries are already subject to audit by Crowe Horwath, the Board believes that it will be a more efficient process for the parent company audit to also be undertaken by Crowe Horwath. The previous auditor, William Buck, have confirmed to ASIC that there are no disagreements between them and the directors or management of Donaco.
