New auditors for FTSE companies

TWO FTSE-LISTED companies have brought in new auditors.

FTSE 100-listed copper producer Kazakhmys has appointed KPMG to undertake its audit work following a “formal, competitive tender process”, it said in a statement to the stock exchange.

The previous audit incumbent was Ernst & Young, which had served as the group’s auditor since 2005.

H R Owen, the listed luxury car dealer, has chosen BDO as auditor after its tender process.

The FTSE “fledgling” company previously used PwC for its audit work.
