Item 4.02 Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statement and Audit Report.

In certain of the previously issued financial statements of World Quantum Growth Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”), a portion of the Company’s redeemable Class A ordinary shares (the “Public Shares”) were classified as permanent equity to maintain shareholders’ equity in excess of $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 immediately prior to or upon such consummation. However, in connection with the preparation of the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021 (the “Quarterly Report”), management re-evaluated the Company’s application of Accounting Standards Codification 480-10-S99 to its accounting classification of Public Shares in light of recent comment letters issued by the Staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to certain special purpose acquisition companies. Upon such re-evaluation, management determined that the Public Shares include redemption provisions that require classification of the Public Shares as temporary equity, regardless of the minimum net tangible asset requirement discussed above.

On November 11, 2021, the audit committee of the Company’s board of directors (the “Audit Committee”), based on the recommendation of and after consultation with management, concluded that certain items on the Company’s previously issued audited balance sheet as of August 13 2021, included in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on August 20, 2021 should no longer be relied upon due to the reclassification of the Public Shares described above. The previously issued financial statements were corrected in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q file on November 18, 2021.

The Audit Committee and management have discussed the matters disclosed in this Item 4.02(a) with Marcum LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
