Atlantic Avenue Acquisition 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 “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 the 7,000,000 redeemable warrants that were issued in a private placement (the “Private Warrants”) and the redeemable warrants that were included in the units issued in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “Public Warrants” and together with the Private Warrants, the “Warrants”) to purchase up to 12,500,000 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock.

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, 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.

Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed ?

(3)
Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof ?          Yes ☐      No ☒

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

The Company is a blank check company formed for the purposes of effecting a business combination with one or more businesses, and has only nominal operations. The registration statement on Form S-1 for the Company’s initial public offering was declared effective on October 1, 2020, and the Company’s Form 10-K was filed on March 25, 2021. The Company was incorporated under the laws of Delaware on July 27, 2020, and, as a result there is no corresponding quarterly information for the period ended March 31, 2020.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Form 12b-25 includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The Company’s actual results may differ from their expectations, estimates and projections and consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Words such as “expect,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “believes,” “continue,” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, the completion of the Company’s quarterly review procedures, many of which are outside the Company’s control, the Company’s expectations with respect to the timing of the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021. These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results, including those under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 25, 2021 and in subsequent reports filed with the SEC and in subsequent reports filed with the SEC. Most of these factors are outside the Company’s control and are difficult to predict. The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. The Company does not undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in its expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
