Item 3.01.Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

 

On May 25, 2021, Adit EdTech Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) indicating that the Company is not in compliance with Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file 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 NYSE informed the Company that, under NYSE rules, the Company will have six months from May 24, 2021 to file the Form 10-Q with the SEC. The Company can regain compliance with the NYSE listing standards at any time prior to that date by filing its Form 10-Q. If the Company fails to file the Form 10-Q before the NYSE’s compliance deadline, the NYSE may grant, at its sole discretion, an extension of up to six additional months for the Company to regain compliance, depending on the specific circumstances. The notice from the NYSE also notes that the NYSE may nevertheless commence delisting proceedings at any time if it deems that the circumstances warrant.

 

As the Company previously reported in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on May 18, 2021, on April 12, 2021, the SEC issued “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies” (the “Staff Statement”). As a result of the Staff Statement, the Company’s management is reevaluating the accounting treatment of the (i) redeemable warrants that were included in the units issued by the Company in its initial public offering, and (ii) the redeemable warrants that were issued in a private placement. The Company is continuing to review the impacts of the Staff Statement on the Company’s unaudited financial statements for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021 and is working diligently to complete the Form 10-Q as soon as practicable with the intention of regaining compliance.

 

On May 28, 2021, the Company issued a press release regarding receipt of the notice from the NYSE. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
