As previously reported in NIC Inc.’s (the “Company”) Form 8-K dated October 27, 2015, the Audit Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors of the Company voted to engage Ernst & Young LLP (“E&Y”) as the principal independent registered public accounting firm to audit the Company’s financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2016.  

On December 29, 2015, the Company and E&Y formally executed an agreement, pursuant to which the Company engaged E&Y as the Company’s principal independent registered public accounting firm to audit the Company’s financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2016.

During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2014 and December 31, 2013 and the subsequent interim period prior to the Company’s engagement of E&Y, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf consulted E&Y regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).
