|REVISION OF PREVIOUSLY ISSUED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS/RESTATEMENT||RESTATEMENT
On April 12, 2021 the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) released a public statement highlighting the potential accounting implications of certain terms of warrants issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”). The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, in consultation with management of the Company concluded that the Company’s previously issued financial statements and related disclosures as of December 31, 2020 and for the period from September 11, 2020 to December 31, 2020 should no longer be relied upon.
Upon reviewing the SEC’s public statement and evaluating the terms of its warrant agreements, the Company determined that it had improperly classified its Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants as shareholders’ equity. In accordance with ASC 815-40 “Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity”, the Company has concluded that its Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants should be classified as a liability at fair value on its balance sheet, with subsequent changes in their respective fair values recognized in the statement of operations at each reporting date. In accordance with ASC 825-10 “Financial Instruments”, the Company has
concluded that a portion of the transaction costs which directly related to the Initial Public Offering and Private Placement, which were previously charged to shareholders’ equity, should be allocated to the warrants based on their relative fair value against total proceeds and recognized as transaction costs in the statement of operations. Further discussion on the related terms and analysis resulting in this conclusion can be found in Note 3.
The Company is restating the financial statements and related disclosures as of December 31, 2020, and for the period from September 11, 2020 to December 31, 2020, to correct misstatements associated with the Company’s classification of its Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants on its balance sheet, in accordance with ASC Topic 250, “Accounting Changes and Error Corrections”.
Description of Restatement Tables
See below for a reconciliation from the previously reported to the restated amounts as of December 31, 2020, and for the period from September 11, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The previously reported amounts were derived from the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as of December 31, 2020, and for the period from September 11, 2020 to December 31, 2020 filed on March 30, 2021. These amounts are labeled as “As Previously Reported” in the table below. The amounts labeled “Adjustment” represent the effects of this Restatement due to the change in classification of the Public Warrants and Private Placement Warrants from shareholders’ equity to liability on the balance sheet.
The correction of this misstatement in the statement of operations related to the expensing of allocated transaction costs resulted in an expense to the company’s statement of operations of $1,583,878 for the period from September 11, 2020 to December 31, 2020. There was no impact to net cash used in operating, investing, and financing activities for the the period from September 11, 2020 to December 31, 2020 as a result of this Restatement.
The following presents a reconciliation of the balance sheet, statement of cash flows, and statement of operations from the prior period as previously reported to the restated amounts as of December 31, 2020. The
statement of shareholders’ equity for the period from September 11, 2020 to December 31, 2020 has been restated respectively, for the restatement impact to net income (loss) and ordinary shares subject to possible redemption:
