RULE 12b-25(b) AND (c)
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 reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;|
|x||(b)||The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR 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|
|(c)||The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.|
State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
PureCycle Technologies, Inc. (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 Staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) issued 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 the accounting and reporting for their warrants. Following review of the SEC Statement, the Company reevaluated the accounting treatment of its public warrants (the “Public Warrants”) and private warrants (the “Private Warrants” and, together with the Public Warrants, the “Warrants”) as equity, and concluded that, based on the SEC Statement, the Private Warrants should be classified as a liability measured at fair value, with non-cash fair value adjustments recorded in earnings at each reporting period.
The Company is currently determining the extent of the SEC Statement’s impact on its financial statements, including the financial statements as of and for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021 included in the Form 10-Q.
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 Statement, the Company was 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 does, however, expect to file the Form 10-Q on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date.
