Item 8.01. Other Events.
On April 12, 2021, the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (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”). In the 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. At issuance on February 26, 2021, the outstanding warrants (“Warrants”) to purchase shares of Class A common stock of BOA Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) were accounted for as equity within the Company’s balance sheet, and after discussion and evaluation, including with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, Marcum LLP (“Marcum”), the Company has concluded that its Warrants should be presented as liabilities as of the IPO date reported, at fair value, with subsequent fair value changes to be recorded in its financial statements at each reporting period.
On May 13, 2021, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company concluded, after discussion with the Company’s management, legal counsel and auditors, that the Company’s audited balance sheet as of February 26, 2021 filed as Exhibit 99.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on March 4, 2021 (the “Form 8-K”) should no longer be relied upon due to changes required to reclassify the Warrants as liabilities to align with the requirements set forth in the Statement. The Company plans to reflect this reclassification of the Warrants in its upcoming Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021, to be filed with SEC.
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.
In addition, the audit report of Marcum included in the Company’s Form 8-K filed on March 4, 2021 should no longer be relied upon.
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.
