Item 4.02. Other Events.


On January 26, 2022, the Company’s management and the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors (the “Audit Committee”) concluded that the Company’s previously issued (i) unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on June 15, 2021,(ii) unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on August 16, 2021 and (iii) certain of the unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on November 12, 2021 (collectively, the “Affected Periods”), should no longer be relied upon due to a reclassification of the Company’s temporary and permanent equity and resulting restatement of the initial carrying value of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption (and related changes). In addition, the audit report of Withum included in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on March 1, 2021 should no longer be relied upon. The reclassification has resulted from a determination by the Company’s management that the Class A ordinary shares issued in connection with its initial public offering can be redeemed or become redeemable subject to the occurrence of future events considered to be outside of the Company’s control. Therefore, the Class A ordinary shares subject to possible redemption should be valued at $10.00 per share and should not take into account the fact that a redemption of Class A ordinary shares cannot result in net tangible assets being less than $5,000,001.


The Company does not expect any of the above changes will have any impact on its cash position and cash held in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”).


As such, the Company has restated its financial statements for the Affected Periods in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q/A for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021 to be filed with the SEC (the “Q3 Form 10-Q/A”).


The Company’s management has concluded that in light of the classification error described above, a material weakness exists in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. The Company’s remediation with respect to such material weakness will be described in more detail in the Q3 Form 10-Q/A.


The Company’s management and the Audit Committee have discussed the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K with Withum.

The Company does not assume any obligation to update or revise any such forward-looking statements, whether as the result of new developments or otherwise.
