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

(a)    Altimar Acquisition Corp. II, a Cayman Islands exempted company (the “Company”), has followed Accounting Standards Codification Topic 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity,” (“ASC 480”) in accounting for its redeemable Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Public Shares”). This included recording a portion of the Public Shares in permanent equity on its balance sheet. However, the Company maintained shareholders’ equity of at least $5,000,001 as the Company will not redeem Public Shares that would cause the Company’s net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001 following redemptions of its Public Shares.

In September 2021, Company management re-evaluated its position that classification of $5,000,001 in permanent equity was appropriate and determined that the Public Shares should instead be reclassified as temporary equity. In connection with the preparation of the unaudited interim condensed financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 that were included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on November 10, 2021 (the “Q3 Form 10-Q”), the Company concluded that it would change its accounting and reflect the full amount of all redeemable Public Shares in temporary equity on its balance sheet. In connection with the change in presentation for the Public Shares subject to possible redemption, the Company also restated its earnings per share to allocate net income (loss) evenly to all Public Shares and Class B ordinary shares. This was a change from the Company’s previous accounting practice whereby it maintained shareholders’ equity of at least $5,000,001 as the Company will not redeem Public Shares that would cause the Company’s net tangible assets to be less than $5,000,001 following redemptions of its Public Shares. On November 23, 2021, the Company’s management and the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”), concluded that the Company’s previously issued (i) audited balance sheet as of February 9, 2021 (the “Post-IPO Balance Sheet”), filed with the SEC by the Company in a Current Report on Form 8-K on February 16, 2021 (the “Post-IPO Balance Sheet 8-K”), (ii) unaudited interim condensed financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2021 included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the SEC on June 1, 2021 (the “Q1 Form 10-Q”), (iii) unaudited interim condensed financial statements as of and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 included in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the SEC on August 12, 2021 (the “Q2 Form 10-Q”), and (iv) unaudited interim condensed financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 included in the Q3 Form 10-Q (collectively, the “Affected Periods”), in each case, should be restated to classify all of the Public Shares as temporary equity and should no longer be relied upon. As a result, the Company will restate its financial statements for all Affected Periods in an amended Q3 Form 10-Q (the “Amended Q3 Form 10-Q”). The Amended Q3 Form 10-Q will include restatements of (i) the Post-IPO Balance Sheet set forth in the Post-IPO Balance Sheet 8-K and (ii) the unaudited interim condensed financial statements for the periods ended March 31, 2021, June 30, 2021 and September 30, 2021 set forth in the Q1 Form 10-Q, the Q2 Form 10-Q and the Q3 Form 10-Q, respectively.

The Company’s management has concluded that, as a result of the events leading to the restatement of the financial statements for the Affected Periods described above, a material weakness existed and the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021. The Company’s remediation plan with respect to such material weakness is described in more detail in the Amended Q3 Form 10-Q.

The Audit Committee and the Company’s management have discussed the matters disclosed in this Current Report on Form 8-K with Withum, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm.
