(a) Resignation of Independent registered Public Accounting Firm
On April 26, 2021, Baker Tilly US, LLP (“Baker Tilly”) resigned as the independent registered public accounting firm of Unique Logistics International, Inc. (the “Company”).
From October 9, 2020 through the date of resignation, there were no disagreements with Baker Tilly on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Baker Tilly, would have caused Baker Tilly to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports. From October 9, 2020 through the date of resignation there were no reportable events as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K except for the identified material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting as disclosed in the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods ended November 30, 2020 and February 28, 2021.
The Company has provided Baker Tilly a copy of the disclosures in this Form 8-K and has requested that Baker Tilly furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission stating whether or not it agrees with the Company’s statements herein. A copy of such letter, which is dated April 30, 2021, is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K.

Effective April 28, 2021, the Company engaged Marcum LLP (“Marcum”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm. The decision to engage Marcum was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors.
From October 9, 2020, and the subsequent interim period prior to the engagement of Marcum, the Company has not consulted Marcum regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to any specified transaction, either completed or proposed; (ii) the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, and either a written report was provided to the registrant or oral advice was provided that the new accountant concluded was an important factor considered by the registrant in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (iii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(o)(1)(iv)) or a reportable event (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v)).
