Explanatory Note

On December 1, 2021, Altimeter Growth Corp. (“AGC”) merged with and into J2 Holdings Inc. (the “Company”), with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation pursuant to that certain Business Combination Agreement, dated as of April 12, 2021, as amended from time to time, by and among the Company, AGC, Grab Holdings Limited, J3 Holdings Inc. and Grab Holdings Inc. The combined company is operating under the name “J2 Holdings Inc.,” which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Grab Holdings Limited.

 

Item 4.02.

Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

Management of the Company, successor by merger to AGC, has re-evaluated AGC’s application of ASC 480-10-S99-3A to its accounting classification of the redeemable Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share ( “AGC Shares”), sold in AGC’s initial public offering (the “IPO”) on October 5, 2020. Historically, a portion of AGC Shares was classified as permanent equity to maintain shareholders’ equity greater than $5 million on the basis that AGC would not redeem AGC Shares in an amount that would cause its net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001, as described in AGC’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Charter”). Pursuant to such re-evaluation, the Company’s management has determined that AGC Shares include certain provisions that require classification of all of AGC Shares as temporary equity regardless of the net tangible assets redemption limitation contained in the Charter.

Therefore, on December 9, 2021, the Company’s management concluded that AGC’s previously issued (i) audited balance sheet as of October 5, 2020, included in Exhibit 99.1 to AGC’s Form 8-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 9, 2020, (ii) audited financial statements on Form 10-K for the annual period ended December 31, 2020, as previously restated in AGC’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the annual period ended December 31, 2020 filed with the SEC on May 18, 2021, (iii) unaudited interim financial statements included in AGC’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021, filed with the SEC on May 24, 2021, (iv) unaudited interim financial statements included in AGC’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on August 16, 2021 and (v) unaudited interim financial statements included in AGC’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, filed with the SEC on November 10, 2021 (collectively, the “Affected Periods”), should be restated to report all AGC Shares as temporary equity and should no longer be relied upon. As such, the Company intends to restate AGC’s financial statements for the Affected Periods in an amendment to AGC’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021 to be filed with the SEC (the “Q3 Form 10-Q/A”), except for the annual period ended December 31, 2020 which will be restated in an amendment to AGC’s Form 10-K for the annual period ended December 31, 2020 to be filed with the SEC (the “2020 Form 10-K/A”) as described therein.

The above changes did not have any impact on its cash position and cash held in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the “Trust Account”).

The Company’s management has concluded that in light of the classification error described above, a material weakness exists in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. The Company’s remediation plan with respect to such material weakness will be addressed in the 2020 Form 10-K/A and the Q3 Form 10-Q/A.

Mr. Artawat Udompholkul (also known as John Cordova), an authorized officer of the Company, has discussed the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K pursuant to this Item 4.02 with WithumSmith+Brown PC.
