DoubleDown Interactive Announces Change in Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
SEATTLE, Feb. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DoubleDown Interactive Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: DDI) (“DoubleDown” or the “Company”), a leading gaming company, delivering unique player experiences across a variety of genres, today announced that it has engaged Samil PricewaterhouseCoopers (“PwC”) as its independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023, replacing Ernst & Young LLP (“EY”).
This decision was made in reference to the change in external auditor of DoubleU Games Co., Ltd., a Korean company and the controlling shareholder of the Company (“DUG”), which was mandated by the Act on External Audit of Stock Companies of Korea and the related regulations thereunder (collectively, the “Act”). Pursuant to the Act, the Securities and Futures Commission of the Financial Services Commission of Korea has appointed PwC as the external auditor of DUG for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023.
