PART III — NARRATIVE

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-CEN, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

System1, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Notification of Late Filing on Form 12b-25 with respect to its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2023 (the “Q1 2023 Quarterly Report”). For the reasons and circumstances set forth below, the Company has determined that it is unable to file its Q1 2023 Quarterly Report within the prescribed time period without unreasonable effort or expense. The Company requires additional time to close its books and prepare and review its financial statements in order to ensure adequate disclosure of the financial information required to be included in the Q1 2023 Quarterly Report.

On March 15, 2023, management and the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors concluded that identified accounting errors impacting the Company’s previously issued unaudited condensed consolidated quarterly financial statements for the first three calendar quarters of fiscal year 2022 were material and will require a restatement of the Company’s financial statements filed on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31,



2022, June 30, 2022 and September 30, 2022 (the “2022 Form 10-Q Filings”). As a result of this determination, the Company has been focused on (i) finalizing the purchase accounting related to previously disclosed acquisitions, (ii) the correction of additional, including previously identified, errors in the 2022 Form 10-Q Filings, (iii) finalizing the Company’s financial close reporting process related to each of the amended 2022 Form 10-Q Filings and (iv) finalizing its financial close reporting process for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.

The Company also concluded that a material weakness exists related to its goodwill impairment testing, which will result in an adjustment amount of between $330.0-$350.0 million with respect to the impairment of goodwill for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2022. In addition to the goodwill impairment adjustment to be included in the amended Quarterly Report for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2022, the Company performed its annual goodwill impairment test as of December 31, 2022, which will result in an additional goodwill impairment charge of $20-$40 million to be included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the annual period then ended. All amounts are presented on a pre-tax basis and are preliminary, unaudited, and subject to further change pending the completion of the Company’s financial close reporting process and the preparation of the related financial statements. As the Company completes the actions and related work noted above, the Company or its management may identify additional material weaknesses not previously disclosed.

As previously disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 12, 2023, the Company has obtained a $20.0 million revolving note with certain affiliates, which revolving note is expected to provide the Company with sufficient liquidity for the next 12 months.

The Company intends to file the Q1 2023 Quarterly Report as soon as practicable.
