Stemming from SEC Guidance Concerning Balance Sheet Treatment of Warrants, Avanti Acquisition Corp. Announces Receipt of NYSE Continued Listing Standard Notice
Avanti Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: AVAN) (the “Company”) today announced that it received a formal notice of non-compliance from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) relating to the Company’s failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-Q”) as required under the timely filing criteria established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual.
On April 12, 2021, the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued “Staff Statement on Accounting and Reporting Considerations for Warrants Issued by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”)” (the “Statement”), which clarified guidance for all SPAC-related companies regarding the accounting and reporting for their warrants. The immediacy of the effective date of the new guidance set forth in the Statement has resulted in a significant number of SPACs re-evaluating the accounting treatment for their warrants with their professional advisors, including auditors and other advisors responsible for assisting SPACs in the preparation of financial statements. This, in turn, has resulted in the Company’s delay in preparing and finalizing its financial statements as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and filing its Form 10-Q with the SEC by the prescribed deadline.
Under NYSE rules, the Company generally has six months following receipt of the notification of non-compliance to regain compliance with the continued listing standard, subject to any extensions by NYSE.
The Company believes the change in SEC guidance does not affect its strategy to acquire a target business or financial performance. The Company is in compliance with all other NYSE continued listing standards. The Company expects to file the Form 10-Q in the very near term and does not foresee any risk of non-compliance with the NYSE six-month remediation timeframe.

The EUROGLIDER Autonomous Electric Glider Project Takes Off16.6.2021 12:22:00 EEST | Press release
The result of an innovative partnership involving the European Association for the Development of Gliding (AEDEVV), Dassault Aviation and the engineering schools of the ISAE Group, the EUROGLIDER project aims to develop an electrically powered two-seater glider for training, release and practice.

The EUROGLIDER project attempts to satisfy the requests of the European gliding training centers. Because of a long waiting period, nearly 2/3 of the new registrants give up before their first "solo" flight.
