Section 4 – Matters Related to Accountants and Financial Statements

Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
(b) Newly Engaged Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

As previously announced, on March 29, 2019, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of City Holding Company (the “Company”) approved the selection of Crowe LLP (“Crowe”) to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019. On April 16, 2019, Crowe completed its standard client acceptance procedures and has been formally engaged by our Audit Committee as our independent registered public accounting firm.

Except as disclosed below, during the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 and from December 31, 2018 through the selection of Crowe as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, neither the Company nor anyone on its behalf had consulted Crowe with respect to any accounting or auditing issues involving the Company. In particular, there was no discussion with the Company regarding the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the consolidated financial statements, or any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement or a “reportable event” with its predecessor independent registered public accounting firm (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K of the SEC’s rules and regulations). As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 29, 2019, in conjunction with the Company’s December 7, 2018 acquisitions of Poage Bankshares, Inc. and Farmers Deposit Bancorp, Inc., the Company engaged Crowe for the Valuation of the Loan Portfolio, Certificates of Deposit, and Core Deposit Customer Relationships Intangible Asset for both acquired companies.
