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

 

On April 12, 2021, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) released a public statement (the “Public Statement”) on accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”). The SEC’s Public Statement discussed “certain features of warrants issued in SPAC transactions” that “may be common across many entities.” The Public Statement indicated that when one or more of such features is included in a warrant, the warrant “should be classified as a liability measured at fair value, with changes in fair value each period reported in earnings.”

 

On May 20, 2021, Greencity Acquisition Inc. (the “Company”, we”, “our” or “us”) determined that the Company incorrectly classified the public warrants and private placement warrants issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “Warrants”) as equity instruments in the previously issued financial statements as of and for the periods ended July 28, 2020, September 30, 2020 and December 31, 2020 included in the Company’s current report on Form 8-K, quarterly report on Form 10-Q, and annual report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on August 3, 3030, September 9, 2020, November 13, 2020 and March 31, 2021, respectively (collectively, the “ Original Financial Statements”). As a result, the Warrants should be recorded as liabilities on the balance sheet and measured at fair value at inception and on a recurring basis in accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations.

 

The Company’s accounting for the Warrants as components of equity instead of as derivative liabilities did not have any effect on the Company’s previously reported investments held in trust, operating expenses, cash flows or cash.

As a result, after discussion with Marcum LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, the Company’s audit committee and Board of Directors concluded that the Original Financial Statements should no longer be relied upon and are to be restated in order to correct the classification error as well as the fair value re-measurements, and align with the SEC’s Public Statement. Accordingly, the Company will disclose the impact of such restatements on its Original Financial Statements in an amended Form 10-K, which the Company will file with the SEC as soon as practicable.

 

The Company’s audit committee has discussed the matters disclosed in this Item 4.02(a) with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, Marcum LLP.
