Omnichannel Acquisition Corp. Receives Anticipated Notice from New York Stock Exchange Regarding Pending Quarterly Report Filing


New York, New York, June 1, 2021 – Omnichannel Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: OCA) (the “Company”) received written notification from The New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) on May 25, 2021 that, because the Company has not yet filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the “10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), the Company does not comply with the continued listing requirements under Section 802.01E of the Listed Company Manual, which requires NYSE-listed companies to timely file all periodic reports with the SEC. The NYSE informed the Company that the Company has six months from the 10-Q filing due date to file the Form 10-Q. The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company's securities on the NYSE.


As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on May 21, 2021 regarding non-reliance on the previously filed financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, on April 12, 2021, the staff of the SEC issued a statement pertaining to Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) entitled “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies” (the “SEC Statement”). In the SEC Statement, the SEC staff expressed its view that certain terms and conditions common to SPAC warrants may require the warrants to be classified as liabilities on the SPAC’s balance sheet as opposed to equity. As a result of the SEC Statement, the Company concluded that its public warrants and the private placement warrants issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering on November 24, 2020 should be classified as liabilities.
