This prospectus supplement amends and supplements the prospectus dated September 30, 2021 (as supplemented or amended from time to time, the “Prospectus”), which forms a part of our Registration Statement on Form S-1 (No. 333-259733).

Accordingly, we have attached the Current Report to this prospectus supplement.
The Prospectus and this prospectus supplement relate to the resale of (i) 24,500,000 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share issued in the PIPE Investment by certain of the selling securityholders, (ii) 35,306,951 shares of Class A common stock issued to certain securityholders in connection with the Business Combination, (iii) 2,076,762 shares of Class A common stock issuable to certain securityholders pursuant to the Earnout, and (iv) 6,600,000 warrants to purchase shares of Class A common stock originally issued in connection with our initial public offering (“private placement warrants”). The Prospectus and this prospectus supplement also relate to the issuance by us of up to 18,099,992 shares of Class A common stock that are issuable by us upon the exercise of the private placement warrants and the exercise of 11,499,992 warrants that were previously registered (“public warrants”).
We are registering the offer and sale of these securities to satisfy certain registration rights we have granted. The selling securityholders may sell the securities described in the Prospectus in a number of different ways and at varying prices. We will not receive any of the proceeds from such sales, but we will receive the proceeds from the exercise of the warrants. The selling securityholders will pay any underwriting discounts and commissions and expenses incurred by them in disposing of these securities. We will bear all other costs, fees and expenses incurred in effecting the registration of these securities, as described in more detail in the section titled “Use of Proceeds” appearing elsewhere in the Prospectus. We provide more information about how the selling securityholders may sell their securities in the section titled “Plan of Distribution” appearing elsewhere in the Prospectus.
The selling securityholders may sell any, all or none of the securities and we do not know when or in what amount the selling securityholders may sell their securities hereunder following the effective date of this registration statement.
Our Class A common stock is traded on NYSE under the symbol “SPIR.” Our public warrants are traded on the NYSE under the symbol “SPIR.WT” and, after resale, our private placement warrants will also trade under the same ticker symbol as the public warrants. On November 3, 2021, the last quoted sale price for our Class A common stock as reported on NYSE was $5.78 and the last reported sale price of our public warrants was $1.25.
This prospectus supplement updates and supplements the information in the Prospectus and is not complete without, and may not be delivered or utilized except in combination with, the Prospectus, including any amendments or supplements thereto. This prospectus supplement should be read in conjunction with the Prospectus and if there is any inconsistency between the information in the Prospectus and this prospectus supplement, you should rely on the information in this prospectus supplement.
We are an “emerging growth company,” as defined under the federal securities laws, and, as such, may elect to comply with certain reduced public company reporting requirements for future filings.
