New auditors for FTSE companies
Kazakhmys and H R Owen make new auditor appointments, with KPMG and BDO winning new clients
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.
