If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)


    (a)   The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
☒      (b)   The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-CEN or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and

Part III – Narrative

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

Bumble Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 (the “10-Q”) within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense because the Company has been unable to timely finalize certain prior period adjustments, including with respect to the recognition and presentation of debt issuance costs and refunds from third-party aggregators, which impacted the Company’s 2020 annual financial statements, 2021 quarterly and annual financial statements and quarterly financial statements for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and March 31, 2022. As the Company previously disclosed in a press release dated November 9, 2022, a copy of which was included as Exhibit 99.1 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K dated November 9, 2022, these revisions were not material to such prior periods and do not affect the ongoing operations of the Company or adjusted EBITDA.

The Company plans to file the 10-Q no later than the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date.
