Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
SALT LAKE CITY -- September 20, 2013
USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA) today announced that it has appointed
KPMG LLP as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm
and has thereby dismissed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP from that role. The
Company engaged KPMG as a result of a competitive bid process that was
recently completed by the Company’s Audit Committee.
“We are pleased to engage KPMG, a global leader in the accounting profession,
as our independent auditors,” said Jerry G. McClain, chairperson of the USANA
Audit Committee. “We had the opportunity to review proposals from several top
accounting firms, and we greatly appreciate the efforts of those firms.
Ultimately, the Audit Committee determined that KPMG was the best fit for
USANA. The Audit Committee also appreciates the professional service provided
by PricewaterhouseCoopers to USANA over the past six years.”
KPMG is expected to begin work immediately by reviewing the Company’s
financial results for the third quarter ending on September 28, 2013.
