CyberNinjas spokesman Rod Thomson said the company was closing for a variety of reasons, including $2 million in debt. The firm previously said it accepted millions of dollars in private donations from backers of the audit.

“The audit and all ongoing legal expenses have raised more than $2 million,” Mr Thomson said in an email. “The goal was to conduct the most comprehensive audit in American history, and to do so thoroughly and accurately.”

The company has faced several lawsuits regarding election review. An Arizona judge ordered CyberNinja to be paid $50,000 per day if the company does not hand over public records related to the review, according to the Arizona Republic newspaper, which sued to demand the records.

While Cyber ​​Ninjas confirmed that Mr Biden won the county, he said he found so-called discrepancies in the election. Maricopa County’s Republican-led local government has defended its voting system and released a report this week saying cyber ninjas made errors and drew several faulty conclusions. Cyber ​​Ninja had no federal accreditation to audit polls.

Cyber ​​Ninja representatives defended their work, saying their reviews were transparent and comprehensive.

The Maricopa County Board of Maricopa County Board said, “The comprehensive report we released today certainly shows that the other stuff was all smoke and mirrors, really red for a crowd of election denials without any basis.” Meet, because Cyber ​​Ninjas and their subcontractors had no commercial auditing choices.” Observers Chairman Bill Gates and Recorder Stephen Richter, both Republicans, said in a joint statement.

Former President Donald Trump and his supporters have called for an audit of the 2020 presidential results in Arizona and elsewhere as part of Trump’s unfounded claims that the election was stolen from him. There is no evidence of widespread fraud, and Mr Trump and his allies lost dozens of lawsuits opposing the results in several states.
