discussed the report with PwC and management. During 2016, we monitored the qualifications, performance, effectiveness and independence of PwC, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for such year. In that regard, we received from PwC, and discussed with it, the written report required by the applicable requirements of the PCAOB regarding PwC’s communications with us concerning PwC’s independence. Based upon these reviews and discussions and in reliance upon them, we recommended to the Board of Directors that the audited consolidated financial statements be included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.
We also approved PwC as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm for 2017, which approval has been ratified by the Board and is being recommended for ratification by shareholders at the 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.
