The Company is unable to file its Form 10-K within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense because it requires additional time to complete the preparation of its financial statements and assessment of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, including as it relates to a business combination that occurred during 2022. As a result of the foregoing, Ernst & Young, LLP, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, has not yet completed its audit procedures.
Based on currently available information and subject to the completion of the preparation of the Company's financial statements and assessment of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and completion of the audit thereof, the Company does not anticipate any material changes to the information reported on the Form 8-K furnished by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 13, 2023.
