State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
Aspirational Consumer Lifestyle Corp. (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 Acting Director of the Division of Corporation Finance and Acting Chief Accountant of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) 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 (‘SPACs’)” (the “SEC Staff Statement”).
On May 4, 2021, in further consideration of the guidance in the SEC Staff Statement and Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging: Contracts in an Entities Own Equity, the Company concluded that a provision in the warrant agreement governing (i) its 7,991,544 redeemable warrants (the “Public Warrants”) that were included in the units issued by the Company in its initial public offering (the “IPO”) and (ii) the 4,529,950 redeemable warrants (together with the Public Warrants, the “Warrants”) that were issued via private placement, related to certain tender or exchange offers precludes the Warrants from being accounted for as components of equity. As the Warrants meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the Warrants are now recorded as derivative liabilities on the balance sheet and measured at fair value at inception (on the closing date of the IPO) and at each reporting date in accordance with ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurement”, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations in the period of change.
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 Staff Statement and ASC 815-40, the Company is 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 plans to file the Form 10-Q as soon as practicably possible.
This report may include “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements, including relating to the filing of the 10-Q, other than statements of historical fact included in this report are forward-looking statements. When used in this report, words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend” and similar expressions, as they relate to the Company or its management team, identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of management, as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company’s management. Actual results could differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors detailed in the Company’s filings with the SEC. All subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on its behalf are qualified in their entirety by this paragraph. Forward-looking statements are subject to numerous conditions, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, including those set forth in the Risk Factors section of the Company’s Amendment No. 1 to its Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. Copies of such filings are available on the SEC’s website, www.sec.gov. The Company undertakes no obligation to update these statements for revisions or changes after the date of this release, except as required by law.

On April 12, 2021, the Acting Director of the Division of Corporation Finance and Acting Chief Accountant of the SEC together issued the SEC Staff Statement regarding the accounting and reporting considerations for warrants issued by special purpose acquisition companies.
On May 4, 2021, in further consideration of the guidance in the SEC Staff Statement and Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging: Contracts in an Entities Own Equity, the Company concluded that a provision in the warrant agreement governing the Warrants related to certain tender or exchange offers precludes the Warrants from being accounted for as components of equity. As the Warrants meet the definition of a derivative as contemplated in ASC 815, the Warrants are now recorded as derivative liabilities on the balance sheet and measured at fair value at inception (on the closing date of the IPO) and at each reporting date in accordance with ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurement”, with changes in fair value recognized in the statement of operations in the period of change.
While the Company has not generated any operating revenues to date and will not generate any operating revenues until after completion of its initial business combination, at the earliest, the change in fair value of the Warrants is a non-cash charge and will be reflected in the Company’s statement of operations. The Company currently expects to have a net loss of approximately $8.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
In addition, there is not a corresponding period in the last fiscal year because the Company was incorporated in July 2020.
Aspirational Consumer Lifestyle Corp. has caused this notification to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
