Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Report.

 

On April 12, 2021, the Acting Director of the Division of Corporation Finance and Acting Chief Accountant of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) together issued a statement regarding the accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies entitled “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) (the “SEC Statement”). Specifically, the SEC Statement focused on certain settlement terms and provisions related to certain tender offers following a business combination, which terms are similar to those contained in the warrant agreement, dated as of September 14, 2020, between Software Acquisition Group Inc. II (the “Company”) and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York corporation, as warrant agent. As a result of the SEC Statement, the Company reevaluated the accounting treatment of (i) the 8,625,000 redeemable warrants (the “Public Warrants”) that were included in the units issued by the Company in its initial public offering (the “IPO”) and (ii) the 5,200,000 warrants (together with the Public Warrants, the “Warrants”) that were issued to the Company’s sponsor in a private placement that closed concurrently with the closings of the IPO, and determined to classify the Warrants as derivative liabilities measured at fair value, with changes in fair value each period reported in earnings. While the Company has not generated any operating revenues to date and will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of its initial business combination, at the earliest, the change in fair value of the Warrants is a non-cash charge and will be reflected in the Company’s statement of operations.

 

On April 23, 2021, after consultation with Marcum LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm (the “Independent Accountants”), the Company’s management and the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) concluded that, in light of the SEC Statement, it is appropriate to restate (i) certain items on the Company’s previously issued audited balance sheet dated as of September 17, 2020, which was related to its IPO, (ii) the Company’s quarterly unaudited financial statements for the period ended September 30, 2020 and (iii) the Company’s previously issued audited financial statements as of December 31, 2020 and for the period from June 16, 2020 (inception) through December 31, 2020 (the “Relevant Periods”). Considering such restatement, such financial statements should no longer be relied upon. The Company will file an amendment to its Annual Report on Form 10-K as of December 31, 2020 and for the period from June 16, 2020 (inception) through December 31, 2020, which will include the restated audited financial statements for the Relevant Periods.

 

Going forward, unless we amend the terms of our warrant agreement, we expect to continue to classify our warrants as a liabilities, which would require us to incur the cost of measuring the fair value of the warrant liabilities, and which may have an adverse effect on our results of operations.

 

The Company’s management and the Audit Committee have discussed the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K pursuant to this Item 4.02 with the Independent Accountants.

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Report includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws with respect to the proposed Business Combination between Otonomo and the Company, including statements regarding the anticipated timing of the Business Combination. These forward-looking statements are generally identified by terminology such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “potentially,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “would,” “project,” “target,” “plan,” “expect,” or the negatives of these terms or variations of them or similar terminology. These forward-looking statements are based upon estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by the Company and its management, and Otonomo and its management, as the case may be, are inherently uncertain. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward looking statements. New risks and uncertainties may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible to predict all risks and uncertainties. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this Report, including but not limited to: (i) the risk that the transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the price of the Company’s securities, (ii) the risk that the transaction may not be completed by the Company’s Business Combination deadline and the potential failure to obtain an extension of the Business Combination deadline if sought by the Company, (iii) the failure to satisfy the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, including the adoption of the Business Combination Agreement by the shareholders of Otonomo and the Company, the satisfaction of the minimum trust account amount following redemptions by the Company’s public shareholders and the receipt of certain governmental and regulatory approvals, (iv) the lack of a third party valuation in determining whether to pursue the proposed Business Combination, (v) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Business Combination Agreement, (vi) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on Otonomo’s business relationships, performance, and business generally, (vii) risks that the proposed Business Combination disrupts current plans of Otonomo and potential difficulties in Otonomo employee retention as a result of the proposed transaction, (viii) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Otonomo or against the Company related to the Business Combination agreement or the proposed Business Combination, (ix) the ability of Otonomo to list its ordinary shares on the Nasdaq, (x) volatility in the price of the combined company’s securities due to a variety of factors, including changes in the competitive and highly regulated industries in which Otonomo plans to operate, variations in performance across competitors, changes in laws and regulations affecting Otonomo’s business and changes in the combined capital structure, and (xi) the ability to implement business plans, forecasts, and other expectations after the completion of the proposed Business Combination, and to identify and realize additional opportunities. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” section of the Company’s, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and other documents filed by the Company from time to time with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and the registration statement on Form F-4 and proxy statement/prospectus discussed above. These filings identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, and Otonomo and the Company assume no obligation and do not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

 

 

 

 

Nothing in this Report should be regarded as a representation by any person that the forward-looking statements set forth herein will be achieved or that any of the contemplated results of such forward-looking statements will be achieved. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements in this Report, which speak only as of the date they are made and are qualified in their entirety by reference to the cautionary statements herein. Neither Otonomo nor the Company undertakes any duty to update these forward-looking statements.

 

Any financial and capitalization information or projections in this Report are forward-looking statements that are based on assumptions that are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond Otonomo’s and the Company’s control. While such information and projections are necessarily speculative, Otonomo and the Company believe that the preparation of prospective financial information involves increasingly higher levels of uncertainty the further out the projection extends from the date of preparation. The assumptions and estimates underlying the projected results are inherently uncertain and are subject to a wide variety of significant business, economic and competitive risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the projections. The inclusion of financial information or projections in this Report should not be regarded as an indication that Otonomo or the Company, or their respective representatives and advisors, considered or consider the information or projections to be a reliable prediction of future events.
