New York (Dec. 9, 2002) -- Big Four firm Deloitte & Touche resigned as auditor to Newport, Calif.-based online ticker broker Tickets.com Inc., citing a business transaction involving affiliates of Tickets.com's largest shareholder.Tickets.com subsequently hired PricewaterhouseCoopers as its new independent auditor.
According to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, affiliates of the client’s largest shareholder agreed to buy a majority stake in a concern that would be an associated entity of a D&T member firm in the United Kingdom. Deloitte told the client that the deal would compromise independence. Deloitte had succeeded Andersen as auditor to Tickets.com on June 6.
