Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On May 25, 2021, Tailwind International Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) received a notice (the “Notice”) from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) indicating that it is not in compliance with NYSE continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file the Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”).
As previously disclosed by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on May 17, 2021, on April 12, 2021, the staff of the SEC issued a public statement entitled “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”)” (the “Statement”), which clarified guidance for all SPAC-related companies regarding the accounting and reporting for their warrants. The immediacy of the effective date of the new guidance set forth in the Statement has resulted in a significant number of SPACs re-evaluating the accounting treatment for their warrants with their professional advisors, including auditors and other advisors responsible for assisting SPACs in the preparation of financial statements. This, in turn, has resulted in the Company’s delay in preparing and finalizing its financial statements as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and filing its Form 10-Q with the SEC by the prescribed deadline.
Under the NYSE’s rules, the Company has six months following receipt of the Notice to file the Form 10-Q with the SEC and can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards before that deadline. As required by the NYSE rules, on May 31, 2021, the Company issued a press release regarding the matters described in this Item 3.01. A copy of the press release is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

|99.1||Press release, dated June 1, 2021.|
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
