Item 3.01 Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

On May 25, 2021, Supernova Partners Acquisition Company, Inc. (the “Company” or “Supernova”) 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 Company’s securities on the NYSE.

On April 12, 2021, the Acting Director of the Division of Corporation Finance and Acting Chief Accountant of 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” (the “SEC Statement”). As result of the SEC Statement, the Company’s 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 Company’s 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.

On June 2, 2021, the Company issued a press release regarding the matters discussed in this Item 3.01. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

99.1    Press Release, dated June 2, 2021.

Important Information About the Transaction and Where to Find It

On March 17, 2021, Supernova entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) by and among Supernova, Orchids Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Supernova (“First Merger Sub”), Orchids Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and direct, wholly owned subsidiary of Supernova (“Second Merger Sub”), and OfferPad, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Offerpad”).

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the parties will enter into a business combination transaction (the “Business Combination”) by which (i) First Merger Sub will merge with and into Offerpad, with Offerpad being the surviving entity in the merger (the “First Merger”), and (ii) Offerpad will merge with and into Second Merger Sub, with Second Merger Sub being the surviving entity in the merger (the “Second Merger” and, together with the First Merger, the “Mergers” and, together with the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, the “Transactions” and the closing of the Transactions, the “Closing”). In connection with the Closing, Supernova will change its name to “Offerpad Solutions, Inc.”

Supernova has filed with the SEC a registration statement on Form S-4 (the “Form S-4”), which includes a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus in connection with the Transactions and will mail a definitive proxy statement/prospectus and other relevant documents to its stockholders. Supernova’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read, when available, the preliminary proxy statement/prospectus, and amendments thereto, and the definitive proxy statement/prospectus in connection with Supernova’s solicitation of proxies for its stockholders’ meeting to be held to approve the Transactions because the proxy statement/prospectus will contain important information about Supernova, Offerpad and the Transactions. The definitive proxy statement/prospectus will be mailed to stockholders of Supernova as of a record date to be established for voting on the Transactions. Stockholders will also be able to obtain copies of the Form S-4 and the proxy statement/prospectus, without charge, once available, at the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to Supernova Partners Acquisition Company, Inc., 4301 50th Street NW, Suite 300, PMB 1044, Washington, DC 20016.


Participants in the Solicitation

Supernova, Offerpad and certain of their respective directors and officers may be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies of Supernova’s stockholders with respect to the approval of the Transactions. Supernova and Offerpad urge investors, stockholders and other interested persons to read, when available, the Form S-4, including the preliminary proxy statement/prospectus and amendments thereto and the definitive proxy statement/prospectus, as well as other documents filed with the SEC in connection with the Transactions, as these materials will contain important information about Offerpad, Supernova and the Transactions. Information regarding Supernova’s directors and officers and a description of their interests in Supernova is contained in Supernova’s prospectus dated October 22, 2020 relating to its initial public offering. Additional information regarding the participants in the proxy solicitation, including Offerpad’s directors and officers, and a description of their direct and indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, is or will be included in the Form S-4 and the definitive proxy statement/prospectus for the Transactions when available. Each of these documents is, or will be, available at the SEC’s website or by directing a request to Supernova as described above under “Important Information About the Transaction and Where to Find It.”

Nothing in this report or the exhibits to this report should be regarded as a representation by any person that the forward-looking statements set forth herein will be achieved or that any of the contemplated results of such forward-looking statements will be achieved.
