At Deloitte, audit quality is our top priority and the foundation of our business. In particular, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of audit quality to ensure we live up to our public interest responsibilities. As part of our system of quality control, we encourage our employees to share any concerns they may have and we have in place confidential hotlines to enable employees to speak up freely. The firm takes any and all complaints seriously and has dedicated teams to carry out follow up investigations.
In this context, we have been made aware of allegations that are currently circulating on social media concerning certain historical 2016 and 2017 audits conducted by Deloitte in Beijing. In fact, many of these allegations were previously reported by a member of our staff through the firm's own internal channels and subject of investigative procedures. Nothing has been found to call into question the sufficiency of our audit evidence supporting our reports. Any further allegations of which we are made aware will be investigated.
We reserve our legal rights to take action against dissemination of false information concerning Deloitte.
