PART III - NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
Independence Holdings Corp. (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 (the “Q3 2021 Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date for the reasons described below.
In light of recent comment letters issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), the management of the Company has re-evaluated the Company’s application of ASC 480-10-S99-3A to its accounting classification of the redeemable Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Public Shares”), issued as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering (the “IPO”) on March 11, 2021. Historically, a portion of the Public Shares was classified as permanent equity to maintain net tangible assets greater than $5,000,000 on the basis that the Company will consummate its initial business combination only if the Company has net tangible assets of at least $5,000,001. Pursuant to such re-evaluation, the Company’s management has determined that the Public Shares include certain provisions that require classification of the Public Shares as temporary equity regardless of the minimum net tangible assets required to complete the Company’s initial business combination.
The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this comment on its Q3 2021 Form 10-Q and is working diligently to complete the Q3 2021 Form 10-Q as soon as possible; however, the Company is unable to complete and file the Q3 2021 Form 10-Q by the required due date of November 15, 2021 without unreasonable effort and expense. The Company does, however, expect to file such report within five calendar days thereof.
