“I would say, overall, the audit went very well. Some issues to work through, but nothing of substance or concern on our end.”

The finishing touches haven’t been completed, but the auditors said they were confident in how things will go.

“We’re far enough along, we know we’re going to be able to sign off a clean audit opinion, which is exactly what you want,” Cox said.

“Nothing to complain about on our end.”
