Item 3.01. Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
On May 25, 2021, DPCM Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) received a notice (the “Notice”) from the staff of NYSE Regulation of the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) indicating that the Company is now subject to the procedures set forth in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual (the “Manual”) due to a delay in filing its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities on the NYSE.
The NYSE informed the Company that, under Section 802.01E of the Manual, the Company has until November 24, 2021 to file the Form 10-Q with the SEC. If the Company does not file the Form 10-Q by that date, the NYSE may grant, in its sole discretion, a further extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The Notice indicates that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time during the cure period, if circumstances warrant.
As the Company reported in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on May 18, 2021, the Company is in the process of re-evaluating the accounting treatment of its warrants following the issuance by the staff of the SEC of the “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”)” (the “SEC Statement”), which clarified guidance for all SPAC-related companies regarding accounting and reporting for their warrants. The Company is currently determining the extent of the SEC Statement’s impact on its financial statements, including the financial statements included in the Form 10-Q and the financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”). The Company is working with its accountants and independent registered public accounting firm to determine whether the financial statements included in the Form 10-K should be restated. Given the scope of the ongoing analysis with respect to the Company’s financial statements, the Company is unable to predict the timing of the Form 10-Q filing at this time. However, the Company continues to work diligently to complete the Form 10-Q as soon as reasonably practicable with the intention of regaining compliance.
Item 8.01. Other Events.
On May 28, 2021, the Company issued a press release announcing its receipt of the Notice. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
This Current Report on Form 8-K includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Certain of these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “believes,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “assumes,” “may,” “should,” “will,” “seeks,” or other similar expressions. Such statements may include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the Company’s ability to become current in its SEC reporting obligations. These statements are based on current expectations on the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K and involve a number of risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ significantly. The Company does not assume any obligation to update or revise any such forward-looking statements, whether as the result of new developments or otherwise. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
