Item 4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review

In connection with the consummation of the initial public offering of Movella Holdings, Inc. (formerly known as Pathfinder Acquisition Corporation) (the “Company”) in February 2021, the Company incurred approximately $11.4 million in deferred underwriting commissions. On September 27, 2022, Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc. irrevocably waived its rights to the deferred underwriting commissions in the amount of approximately $6.3 million due under the underwriting agreement in connection with the initial public offering. The Company recognized the waiver as a settlement, with a resulting non-operating gain recognized in its statement of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022. Upon subsequent review and analysis, management concluded that the Company should have recognized the extinguishment of the contingent liability as a credit to shareholders’ deficit.

On March 24, 2023, the Company’s management concluded that the Company’s previously issued unaudited financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 on Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on November 14, 2022 should no longer be relied upon and that it is appropriate to restate the financial statements included in the Form 10-Q. As a result, the Company will reflect the necessary adjustments in its audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2022 on Form 10-K to be filed with the SEC.

The Company’s management has discussed the matters disclosed pursuant to this Item 4.02(a) with the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, WithumSmith+Brown, PC.





Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
