The reports of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Certified Public Accountants LLP ("DTT") on the combined and consolidated financial statements of the Company as of March 31, 2020 and 2019 and for the three years in the period ended March 31, 2020 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the Company's fiscal years ended March 31, 2019 and 2020 and until the engagement of KPMG, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf has consulted with KPMG on either (i) 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 neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company by KPMG which KPMG concluded as an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue, or (ii) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement, as that term is defined in Item 16F(a)(1)(iv) of Form 20-F (and the related instructions thereto) or a reportable event as set forth in Item 16F(a)(1)(v) of Form 20-F.
