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.

 

Waldencast Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) has determined that it is unable, without unreasonable effort or expense, to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”) by the prescribed due date for the reasons described below.

 

On April 12, 2021, the Acting Director of the Division of Corporation Finance and Acting Chief Accountant of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “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 Staff Statement”).

 

The Company is currently evaluating the guidance included in the SEC Staff Statement with respect to the Company’s accounting treatment of (i) its 11,500,000 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 5,933,333 warrants (together with the Public Warrants, the “Warrants”) that were issued via private placement, and is determining what effects such guidance will have on the Company's financial statements. In particular, the Company’s management is reevaluating the accounting treatment of the Warrants in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging: Contracts in an Entities Own Equity. ASC 815-40 states entities must consider whether to classify contracts that may be settled in its own stock, such as warrants, as equity of the entity or as an asset or liability. The Company previously accounted for the Warrants as components of equity. The Company is concurrently evaluating the materiality of any potential, required adjustments related to this matter and other related accounting matters in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin 99.

 

The Company is working diligently to complete the Form 10-Q as soon as possible; however, given the scope of the process for determining the appropriate treatment of the Warrants in accordance with the SEC Staff Statement and ASC 815-40, the Company is unable to complete and file the Form 10-Q by the required due date of May 17, 2021 without unreasonable effort and expense. The Company plans to file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicably possible.

 

This report may include “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, including relating to the filing of the 10-Q, other than statements of historical fact included in this report are forward-looking statements. When used in this report, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend” and similar expressions, as they relate to the Company or its management team, identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company’s management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors detailed in the Company’s filings with the SEC. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on its behalf are qualified in their entirety by this paragraph. Forward-looking statements are subject to numerous conditions, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, including those set forth in the Risk Factors section of the Company’s prospectus relating to the IPO filed with the SEC. Copies of such filings are available on the SEC’s website, www.sec.gov. The Company undertakes no obligation to update these statements for revisions or changes after the date of this release, except as required by law.

 

 

 

 

Part IV – Other Information

 

(1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification

 

Michel Brousset (917) 546-6828
(Name) (Area Code) (Telephone Number)

 

(2)   Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If the answer is no, identify report(s).

 

☒ Yes ☐ No

 

(3)   Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?

 

☐ Yes ☒ No

 

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

 

On April 12, 2021, the Acting Director of the Division of Corporation Finance and Acting Chief Accountant of the SEC together issued the SEC Staff Statement regarding the accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies.

 

The Company is currently evaluating the guidance included the SEC Staff Statement with respect to the Company’s accounting treatment of the Warrants and is determining what effects such guidance will have on the Company's financial statements. In particular, the Company’s management is reevaluating the accounting treatment of the Warrants in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging: Contracts in an Entities Own Equity. ASC 815-40 states entities must consider whether to classify contracts that may be settled in its own stock, such as warrants, as equity of the entity or as an asset or liability. The Company previously accounted for the Warrants as components of equity. The Company is concurrently evaluating the materiality of any potential, required adjustments related to this matter and other related accounting matters in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin 99.

 

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, if the Company determines to account for the Warrants as liabilities, the change in fair value of the Warrants will be a non-cash charge and will be reflected in the Company’s statement of operations. Because the Company has not yet reached a definitive conclusion about the accounting treatment for the Warrants, it is unable to provide an estimate of the anticipated change, if any, at this time.

 

In addition, there is not a corresponding period in the last fiscal year because the Company was formed on December 8, 2020.
