ExciteAtHome ditches Ernst & Young

Breaking up is so very hard to do

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

ExciteAtHome has dumped Ernst & Young, the auditors who said they had "substantial doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".

The pair split up on August 15 - five days before the publication of a report, which cast doubt on ExciteAtHome's financial future.

The timing of the split doesn’t look good for either side and suggests that the break-up might have been just a teensy-weensy bit acrimonious.

Still, at least there weren't any children involved - that always makes these kinds of things messy.

Anyhow, it didn't take long for ExciteAtHome to jump into bed with another bit of financial fluff. Step forward PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Here's hoping it's good news from here on in. Otherwise PwC might get the elbow next. ®
