SHENZHEN, China, May 17, 2021 — MingZhu Logistics Holdings Limited (“MingZhu” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: YGMZ), an elite provider of logistics and transportation services to businesses, today announced its Audit Committee has dismissed Friedman LLP (“Friedman”) as the Company’s independent auditor and engaged Singapore-based Audit Alliance LLP, as its new independent auditor, effective today.
The Company’s Audit Committee reached its decision to engage Audit Alliance LLP as the new independent registered public accounting firm of the Company after thorough evaluation and with the concurrence of the Board of Directors. There have been no disagreements between Friedman and the Company on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures that would have caused Friedman to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. In addition, the previous auditor’s reports of Friedman on the Company’s consolidated financial statements did not contain any adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and none of those reports was qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.

The Company expects to complete preparation of its financial statements and review them with the new auditors shortly and will complete its Form 20-F filing as soon as is practical.
