Change of Auditor and Financial Year End


CyanConnode (AIM: CYAN), a world leader in Narrowband Radio Frequency (RF) Smart Mesh Networks, is pleased to announce that RSM UK Audit LLP has been appointed as the Company's External Auditor.


The QCA Corporate Governance Code recommends that the Audit Committee reviews the length of tenure of their external audit firm and when the audit contract should be put out to tender.  As no tenders have been carried out since 2003, the Audit Committee felt it appropriate for one to be carried out.


Following this tender process and Board review, RSM UK Audit LLP has been appointed as the Company's External Auditor for the financial period ending 31 March 2020.  This appointment is subject to approval by the Company's shareholders at the next Annual General Meeting to be held in 2020.  Deloitte LLP, the Company's previous External Auditor, did not participate in this tender and has confirmed to the Company that there are no matters connected with it ceasing to hold office which need to be brought to the attention of the members or creditors of the Company, for the purposes of section 519 of the Companies Act 2006.  The Board would like to extend its appreciation to Deloitte LLP for its many years of service.


As part of continued operational efficiency and cost management, the Audit Committee has reviewed the alignment of the Company's financial year end with that of its Indian subsidiary, CyanConnode Private Limited.  The Committee concluded it rational and more practical to use the financial year end of its Indian subsidiary, being 31 March.  The year end of its Swedish subsidiaries will also be changed to 31 March to align with the rest of the Group.  Consequently, the Company also announces that it will be changing its accounting reference date and financial year end from 31 December to 31 March.


Therefore, the Group's next three financial reporting events will be as follows:


(i)           Publication of unaudited interim accounts for the six-month period ended 31 December 2019 - by 31 March 2020;


(ii)          Publication of audited accounts for the fifteen-month period ended 31 March 2020 - by 30 September 2020; and


(iii)         Publication of unaudited interim accounts for the six months ended 30 September 2020 - by 31 December 2020.
