PHILADELPHIA, PA, June 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- INSU Acquisition Corp. III (NASDAQ: IIII) (the “Company”), a blank-check company sponsored by Cohen & Company Inc. (NYSE American: COHN) and formed for the purpose of acquiring or merging with one or more businesses or entities in the insurance industry, today announced that on May 28, 2021 it received a notice from Nasdaq Regulation indicating that, as a result of not having timely filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”), the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), which requires timely filing of all required periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
The Nasdaq notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s units, Class A common stock or warrants on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Notice provides that the Company must submit a plan to regain compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) by July 26, 2021. If the plan is accepted by Nasdaq, then Nasdaq can grant the Company up to 180 calendar days from the due date of the Form 10-Q, or November 22, 2021, to regain compliance.
As the Company reported in its Form 12b-25 filed with the SEC on May 18, 2021, the Company is working diligently with its auditors and an independent valuation expert to evaluate the impact on the Company’s financial statements of the Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) issued by the staff of the SEC on April 12, 2021. After this evaluation, the Company may be required to file an amendment to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2020. Until the Company determines whether or not it is required to file an amendment to its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2020, subsequently files such amendment, and completes the process for valuing the Company’s warrants at March 31, 2021, the Company will not be in a position to file the Form 10-Q.
