June 2, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C, June 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ Supernova Partners Acquisition Company, Inc. (NYSE: SPNV) (the Company, Supernova, us or our) announced today that, on May 25, 2021, it received a notice (Notice) from the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE) indicating that it was not in compliance with NYSE continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual as a result of its failure to timely file the Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the Form 10-Q). The Rule requires listed companies to timely file all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Companys securities on the NYSE.

As result of the SEC Statement, the Companys management reevaluated the accounting treatment of (i) the redeemable warrants that were included in the units issued by the Company in its initial public offering, (ii) the redeemable warrants that were issued in a private placement (collectively, the Warrants), and (iii) the forward purchase agreements. As reported by the Company in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on May 17, 2021, given the scope of the process for evaluating the impact of the SEC Statement on the Companys financial statements, the Company was unable to file the Form 10-Q within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense. The Company filed the Form 10-Q with the SEC on May 28, 2021.
