PART III — NARRATIVE
State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
Andina Acquisition Corp. III (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 “Q1 2021 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 Securities and Exchange Commission 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” (the “SEC Statement”). As a result of the SEC Statement, the Company’s management is reevaluating the accounting treatment of (i) the 10,800,000 warrants that were included in the units issued by the Company in its initial public offering (the “Public Warrants”) and (ii) the 395,000 warrants that were issued in a private placement (the “Private Warrants”, collectively with the Public Warrants, 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; however, after consideration of the guidance in the SEC Statement, the Company believes that the Private Warrants may need to be accounted for as a liability and measured at fair value with changes in fair value each period reported in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company is in the process of completing its final analysis of this change.
The Company is working diligently to complete the Q1 2021 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 and ASC 815-40, the Company is unable to complete and file the Q1 2021 Form 10-Q by the required due date of May 17, 2021 without unreasonable effort and expense. The Company does, however, expect to file such report within five calendar days thereof.
