On December 1, 2021, Brain Scientfic Inc. (the “Company”) changed auditors from Sadler, Gibb & Associates LLC (“Sadler Gibb”).
Sadler Gibb’s audit report on the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 contained a going concern qualification. During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020, and 2019, and the subsequent interim period through September 30, 2021, there were (i) no disagreements with Sadler Gibb 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 Sadler Gibb, would have caused Sadler Gibb to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports; (ii) no reportable events as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.
The Company has provided Sadler Gibb a copy of the disclosures in this Form 8-K and has requested that Sadler Gibb 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.

Effective December 1, 2021, the Company engaged Accell Audit and Compliance PA (“Accell”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm. Accell served as the auditor of Piezo Motion Corp. since 2018. Piezo Motion Corp. merged with the Company as of October 1, 2021. The decision to engage Accell was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors.
During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2020, and 2019, and the subsequent interim period through September 30, 2021, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf has consulted with Accell 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)).
