EMPOWERMENT & INCLUSION CAPITAL I CORP. : Non-Reliance on Previous Financials, Audits or Interim Review (form 8-K)

12/01/2021 | 04:18pm EDT

Item 4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related

           Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.



The management of Empowerment & Inclusion Capital I Corp. (the "Company") has re-evaluated the Company's application of ASC 480-10-S99-3A to its accounting classification of the redeemable Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the "Public Shares"), issued as part of the units sold in the Company's initial public offering (the "IPO") on January 12, 2021. Historically, a portion of the Public Shares was classified as permanent equity to maintain stockholders' equity greater than $5 million on the basis that the Company will not redeem its Public Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001. Pursuant to such re-evaluation, the Company's management has determined that the Public Shares include certain provisions that require classification of the Public Shares as temporary equity regardless of the minimum net tangible assets required to complete the Company's initial business combination.

Therefore, on November 30, 2021, the Company's management and the audit committee of the Company's board of directors (the "Audit Committee"), after discussing with WithumSmith+Brown, PC ("Withum"), the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, concluded that the Company's previously issued (i) audited balance sheet as of January 12, 2021, filed as Exhibit 99.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on January 19, 2021, (ii) unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on May 28, 2021, (iii) unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on August 10, 2021, and (iv) unaudited interim financial statements included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on November 12, 2021 (collectively, the "Affected Periods"), should be restated to report all Public Shares as temporary equity and should no longer be relied upon. As such, the Company intends to restate its financial statements for the Affected Periods in an Amendment No. 1 to the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, to be filed with the SEC (the "Q3 Form 10-Q/A").

The Company does not expect any of the above changes will have any impact on its cash position and cash held in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the "Trust Account").

The Company's management has concluded that in light of the classification error described above, a material weakness exists in the Company's internal control over financial reporting and that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. The Company's remediation plan with respect to such material weakness will be described in more detail in the Q3 Form 10-Q/A.

The Company's management and the Audit Committee have discussed the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K pursuant to this Item 4.02 with Withum.
